Popular holiday, wedding and conferencing venue, River Place Country Estate, has joined the management and marketing portfolio of AHA Hotels & Lodges, the property management business of Tourvest’s Accommodation and Activities division.
Located in the lush Hennops River Valley just north of Johannesburg, River Place Country Estate hosts a range of beautiful venues and accommodation in a pristine and relaxed country setting just 20 minutes’ drive from Fourways (off the William Nicol Drive extension), Centurion and Lanseria International Airport.
Whether guests are seeking a relaxing family holiday break, a productive conference and teambuilding experience or romantic wedding setting, this charming property caters for every need, with its 16 Deluxe Rooms and three Stone-clad Suites, which overlook the river.
Guests and delegates can select from a range of versatile venues ensuring that whether it’s a high-level business conference or product launch, a wedding or an anniversary, an intimate lunch or a family celebration, the experience will exceed all expectations.
Additional highlights include the Mountain View Conference Centre, built from local stone in a farmhouse style and set within indigenous gardens; the River View Venue, offering 270° views of the river and surrounding hills; a 50-seater rock amphitheatre and the Italian riverside restaurant al Fiume and il Patio Gourmet Pizzeria serving up the season’s best, cooked with skill and passion.
While the grown-ups indulge in long, lazy summer days on the wooden deck, there is also plenty to do for the kids.
The River Place Country Estate is a welcome addition to the AHA portfolio, says Managing Director Neil Bald. “Having a property with such a strong, versatile conferencing and event focus in the Gauteng region adds immense value to our footprint.
“We look forward to contributing to the property’s further success as the experts in hospitality management and marketing as it joins our portfolio of properties in South Africa and Southern Africa, including Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia.”
