Friday, July 3, 2020

The vibrant Zulu themed Umfolozi Hotel, Casino and Convention Resort is open for business. Conveniently located just off the N2 highway in Empangeni, the resort’s reopening is in accordance with provisions as stipulated by the Department of Health (DOH) and World Health Organisation (WHO).

Precautionary measures include, wearing a face mask or shield at all times, daily temperature screening (if a temperature of 37.5ºC and higher is recorded, access will not be permitted), record keeping of guests at all entrances, thorough and regular cleaning of all areas and touch points, and the deployment of extra hand sanitiser dispensers to key public areas. The resort’s gaming activities will resume with a limited number of players per tables game and alternate slot machines being disabled to ensure adherence to social distancing requirements. To effectively manage capacity, access to the various gaming areas is limited to Winners Circle loyalty members. The modern Umoja Bistro restaurant is also open and offers a delicious variety of local favourites, pizza and much more.

“We are excited to reopen and to welcome guests to Umfolozi. Peace of mind remains paramount during these uncertain times, and that is why we have enforced a multi-layered set of protocols and procedures to ensure the well-being and safety of our guests. In addition, our employees have been fully briefed and trained on best practices,” comments Pam Nagappa, General Manager at the resort. The Hotel, Convention Centre and remaining leisure facilities will open in due course. As per legislation, guests are required to continue practising good hygiene, wear mandatory protective face mask or shields, and practise social distancing.
