Travel Advisory: Covid-19 Covid-19 Preparedness

RH Hotels and Management
RH Hotels opens with Travel Trade Special



JOHANNESBURG –It’s been an entire year since President Ramaphosa locked South Africa down for what we all thought would be a 3 week break in operations. After an immensely trying time for everyone in the Travel Industry, RH Hotels is excited and grateful to be re-opening again to their valued guests.


“It’s been tough for many industries this past year, but particularly for the Travel and Hospitality Industry”, comments Vedika Rutthan, Director of Operations, “Not knowing when we’d be able to welcome back guests has been hard, but we’ve also had a full year to prepare for our re-opening, which means that our Covid-19 Preparedness is top-notch.”


The first hotel in the RH Hotels stable to re-open is Holiday Inn Express Durban-Umhlanga, which welcomes back guests from 01 April 2021, just in time for the Easter Weekend. Says Bronwyn McLeod, General Manager: “It’s been quite a ride this past year. We re-opened for the first time in October 2020, after 7 months of being closed and the team did such a great job and hit the ground running. Unfortunately, the adjusted Level 3 restrictions, growing infection rate and lack of demand saw us closing the hotel again in January, after a successful festive season. The team are excited to get back into the swing of things and guests can travel with the knowledge that our hotel is Covid compliant and ready to re-open with all the requisite safety measures in place.”


RH Hotel Pretoria is the next hotel to open on 12 April 2021, with Holiday Inn Express Cape Town-City Centre and Holiday Inn Johannesburg-Rosebank following close on its heels on 15 April 2021, followed by Holiday Inn Express Sandton-Woodmead on 01 May 2021.
