On arrival the hotel’s most striking element is its openness. A recent revamp has seen guest areas opened up, lower and brought closer to the river. Curated collections of sound objects like seed pods, thorn branches and bones further express the feeling of being at one with nature. The combination of cosmopolitan design and décor, warm and welcoming family atmosphere and good food at a reasonable price leaves visitors completely satisfied. Bon Riviera understands that interaction with its guests is a vital part of creating a well-rounded dining experience rich in style and ambience.
As it sits above the river you can laze on pillows and gaze at moving river. The room has an elegant style, tranquil and is peaceful with a spectacular view with beautiful landscape garden features swimming pool and patio, wining and dining options. Enjoy while you indulge in bottle of wine and biltong. The rooms include a complimentary wireless internet access, coffee and tea makers, mini-bars and satellite television. Lying in my vast double bed with its super-soft natural flax linen, the stress of work, school and the “real” world slips away. A gorgeous exposure of the concept of “the grand lifestyle” is particularly inviting. The hotel offers guests a unique mix of exclusivity, flexibility, sophistication and design- to be enjoyed by colleagues, family, friends and even couples looking for a romantic setting. The venue is a perfect setting for celebrating anniversaries, special birthdays, well deserved promotions or simply a great time out.
Fresh ingredients are combined to form the luxuriously scrumptious dishes an offer, designed to blow guests away and leave Bon Riviera lingering in their dreams days after the visit. You can find all the irresistible cuisine offered at the Riviera waiting to provide you with unsurpassable dining experiences. Guests are spoilt for choice at the Bon Riviera where options range from seafood, vegetarian and chic South African flair that is sure to satisfy even the harshest critics. All palates and preferences are catered for, be it meat lovers, seafood fundis and discerning vegetarians.
Sunset cruises and exciting activities including jet lifting, wake boarding, skiing and tubing are what makes this venue stand out. Guests can stroll down to the bar that overlooks the expansive gardens and pools to enjoy a drink before or after dinner. Embrace the outdoor setting as you let the breeze relax you and indulge in a prepared meal with the finest wine.
The serene surrounds are also ideal for weddings and honeymoons. The hotel is also ideal for a whole range of team building events and corporate getaways, making of popular destination for business travellers. Nothing beats a refreshing cocktail packed with fruit, alcohol and generous helping of ice-cubes, on a hot summer evening during sunset boat cruise a night of networking and good times with people of different backgrounds while watching water sports activities such as jet lifting and speed boating.
I woke up super early the next morning took a quiet stroll down the lake and just sat on the sun chairs for a bit, letting it all soak in whilst watching the golf players and families having a picnic beneath the shades. I was charged with a pausing moment enjoying the grand lifestyle and this will forever stay with me.
