From the 1st of September, Africlassic Rivonia by BON Hotels will officially be part of the BON Hotel fold. The hotel is family-owned and operated, run by the Van Sandwyk family. The business was established in 2004 and since then they’ve developed two hospitality properties within the Africlassic brand – one of which is the Rivonia property, which occupies a private position on the Braamfontein Spruit in Sandton.
“What truly makes this hotel special is that each of the rooms represents a different African country, each telling its own story with its authentic decor and design. The artefacts inside each room also reflect a deep love for the African continent and all its inhabitants, making it a fascinating destination,” says Jan Van Sandwyk, owner of the Africlassic Rivonia by BON Hotels.
The luxury property overlooks the river from its restaurant patio, so is a great spot for sundowners and dinners. “We are delighted to begin this journey with the Africlassic Rivonia property. This beautiful accommodation will give the tourism industry a much-needed boost. We are excited to see the benefits of this venture not only for BON Hotels but for the people of the area working to make it a success,” says Pieter Van Eck, Group Development Director of BON Hotels.
“We are going to see the Africlassic by BON Hotels brand expand throughout Africa and welcome discussions with hotel owners with unique African-themed hotels and lodges to make contact with us, says Guy Stehlik, CEO BON Hotels.
