Have You Booked Your Year End Function Venue Yet

If you haven’t already made a venue booking for this eagerly anticipated annual function, it’s now time that you do so, particularly if you want to avoid disappointment and having to settle for an establishment that is, well frankly, less than ideal or not of the standard that you and your guests expect.

A year-end function occurs only once each calendar year, most often as a precursor to the festive and summer holiday season in South Africa. This celebratory affair (and the venue where it is to be held) should be special, since year-end functions are not only parties, but they also serve to thank your employees and guests for their support and efforts during the preceding 11 months.

Ideally, you’ll want a venue that is away from the office or normal workplace, thus allowing your guests to escape that which is familiar and represents their daily humdrum and routine. A lovely venue in a beautiful and unusual setting would be great, providing that it’s not too distant from where people work and live – Johannesburg, in this instance.

Your Pick of Function Hosting Venues

Since its inception, Thaba Eco Hotel has played host to a multitude of fine functions and highly successful events of all types, year-end parties included. We’re located in the Klipriviersberg Nature Reserve, about 20 minutes’ travel to the southern side of Johannesburg – close enough to be convenient, yet far enough away from the city centre to allow guests to enjoy a world of Highveld natural beauty.

Views from the grounds, guest rooms and hotel buildings are marvellous – from the undulating play of light and shadow across the crests and depressions of Klipriviers Valley, to the quartzite ridges atop the Klipriviersberg range.

Thaba Eco Hotel is well into the process of re-introducing game, mainly antelope species, that was once indigenous to the Highveld region, a perfect fit for the terrain and other fauna and flora that occur naturally in the area.

In keeping with our strict eco ethos, we’re about to become the first privately owned nature conservancy in Johannesburg, a feature that will greatly enhance our already formidable appeal as a unique and first-class event venue, despite the fact that we already hold a number of prestigious awards.
