It’s the most wonderful time of year! The Manzi Monaté Family is ready and excited for the Festive Season. We are looking forward to seeing our beautiful Resort fill up with happy holidaymakers during the December holidays. We are amazed at how quickly this year has gone by. It has been such a wonderful time that we have shared with our valued Shareholders and guests.

We have cherished every family’s visit, from when they climb out of the car and head into Reception, filled with the stresses and tension of city living, until the moment they leave, effortless and relaxed. Before the holiday excitement carries us completely away, allow us to catch you up on the events and happenings of the last six months.

June

We are happy to introduce June Hoy, the new Manzi Monaté Resort Manager. June joined the team in November 2022 and brings over 16 years of Resort management experience to the team. Welcome June, we hope you will be very happy in your new role at the head of our Manzi Monaté family.

We would also like to take a moment to thank Zelda Garzouzie, who stepped in as acting Resort Manager prior to June's appointment.

Just as Manzi Monaté is a home for all, it seems that the Animal Farm is too! Four geese showed up at the Resort one morning and decided that this was going to be their new home. Our Team gave the four geese their own space on our Animal Farm and they have been living comfortably ever since. One of them recently gave life to eight adorable goslings and they have just completely stolen our hearts. Aren’t they too cute?

Did you know? Geese are very loyal and have a strong affection for others in their group. If one gets sick or is wounded, a couple of the other geese often refuse to leave the side of a sick or injured goose and will stay with it until it is able to get back on its feet and fly again.

We have officially launched the Manzi Monaté website! Keep in touch with all the latest and greatest news from your home-away-from-home. We’ll be giving you an in-depth look into the Resort and have created a special section where our owners can stay up to date with Resort documentation, ASM minutes, check-in procedures, notices, and important news and updates.

Manzi Monaté loves creating a unique experience for our valued Shareholders and guests to enjoy. Here’s a peek at how we celebrated National Braai Day this year:

 

On Friday, the 23rd of September, new arrivals were pleasantly surprised by a beautifully adorned Reception entrance that featured a colourful balloon garland. The colours chosen for the archway represented the South African flag.

On stepping into Reception, each guest received sweet treats of South African flag cupcakes and mini milk tarts. On Heritage Day, the Manzi Team hosted a bring and braai for our guests and provided free pap and Sheba to commemorate a day that celebrates our beautiful culture as a nation!

Later on, everyone gathered together to watch the Bokke versus Argentina playoff in the Rugby Championship. It was a lovely weekend of continual celebration and adoration for our beautifully diverse country.


A good holiday is incomplete without delicious food and tasty treats. We have another reason to ditch the diet: Manzi Monaté's Kiosk!

Kiosk

Located poolside, the onsite Shop stocks a variety of "oops, I forgot" items such as dish washing liquid, mozzie repellent, and shower gel, as well as snacks and ice-cream. We also highly recommend visiting the shop to browse the beautiful collection of clothing and accessories, as well as kiddies' toys.

If that doesn't tickle your fancy then the wafts of deliciousness trailing out of the Kiosk kitchen are sure to grab your attention! Stop by for a family lunch. Moreish burgers, cheesy pizzas and toasties served with hot chips offer something to satiate every member of the family, or grab an afternoon milkshake or fresh waffle to make your holiday even sweeter.

View the Kiosk menu, here.

Our Team remains committed to creating everlasting memories for every single person that we have the pleasure of hosting at our Resort. Our hearts are filled with appreciation whenever we hear from our guests about their incredible Manzi Moments. This is what some of them had to say about their home-away-from-home:

Excellent service! Friendly and helpful staff and the chalets are so spacious with everything you need. Your home-away-from-home. Will come again.
- Candace (Google)

 

It was super awesome! The facilities and gardens are so well kept. Very spacious. We enjoyed the quiet and peaceful surroundings.
- AE Hawkey (GuestRevu)

This is very well managed. We did not have to clean cutlery or plates on check-in, like at our last Resort. Details are important to Management and that gives us a pleasant experience as customers. Your control of loudness in the units was also important to us. Overall, all we can say is: keep up the excellent work!
- Alan Graham Heathcote (GuestRevu)

 

We visited Manzi Monaté at the end of July. We were blown away! A great place to break away with the family - everything you need either on the premises or a few minutes’ drive away. Excellent service was received as well.
- Lucharle de Souza (Google)

If you fancy venturing out, here are some places within easy driving distance that you
can check out during your stay:

Roodeplaat Dam Nature Reserve

Roodeplaat Dam Nature Reserve

A major advantage is that the Roodeplaat Dam Nature Reserve is only a 15-minute drive from Manzi Monaté. The 200 000 hectare Nature Reserve does not disappoint when it comes to spotting wildlife and bird-watching. Visitors are also able to settle on the banks of the dam for a picnic or hop into a canoe, sail, and fish out on the water.

Sammy Marks Museum

Sammy Marks Museum

Sammy Marks is known as one of the first entrepreneurs in South Africa and he played a great role in the development of the mining, industrial and agricultural sectors in the country. The Sammy Marks Museum was originally home to the Marks family and 98% of all the items in the Museum are from the late 1800s and early 1900s to depict their lives at the time. Visitors to the Museum get to hear his story and his achievements as a businessman during the South African War.

We would like to remind our valued Shareholders to kindly check and sign off on inventories upon arrival at your home-away-from-home unit. An inventory list is available in your unit; any discrepancies must please be reported at Reception.


2023 Flexi Weeks
Don’t forget! Flexi weeks are secured on a “first-come-first-served” basis, so booking your holiday at the start of 2023 gives you the BEST availability to choose from, for a time that suits YOU. There are only as many flexi weeks available as there are Shareholders; as the months pass us by, fewer holidays become available and you might end up without a holiday in the 2023 period. Aren’t sure of your 2023 plans yet? Rather book early and spacebank your selected week. For assistance, contact our team on 012 492 1232 or propertyadmin@rhservices.co.za
