In compliance with the regulations of South Africa's level 3 lockdown, BON Hotels opened BON Hotel Waterfront Richards Bay, Die Kliphuis Standerton by BON Hotels and Buckler's Africa Lodge by BON Hotels earlier in June to accommodate business travellers.

As the demand for business travel increases, BON Hotel Bloemfontein Central and BON Hotel Empangeni reopened on 1 July, serving a large number of travellers from all over the country. Shishangeni by BON Hotels, situated within the Kruger National Park, is scheduled to reopen towards 1 September 2020.

"We are grateful to be welcoming new and returning guests to BON Hotels properties across the country. We have taken every precaution to ensure the health and safety of our guests and staff, while still maintaining our promise of great service," says Guy Stehlik, CEO of BON Hotels.

"At BON Hotel Waterfront Richards Bay and Buckler’s Africa Lodge by BON Hotels, we have already welcomed our first guest, with every member of staff wearing their Personal Protective Equipment to ensure that we abide by every guideline set out by the World Health Organisation (WHO), the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Tourism and relevant tourism bodies."

For peace of mind and added safety, some of the measures now in place include special attention to luggage- and cash-handling; symptom screening of all staff, guests and visitors; hands-free sanitising stations in all public areas; clear screens at reservation and restaurant counters; and ongoing training on housekeeping and hygiene procedures. Staff, guests and visitors are also required to wear masks at all times.
