The Fortis Hotel Group consist of six Protea branded hotels.
These include the Protea Hotel Capital, Protea Hotel Highveld, Protea Hotel Hunters Rest, Protea Hotel Malaga, Protea Hotel Manor and Protea Hotel Witbank. Derick Tait, the Managing Director of the Fortis Hotel Group initiated the Fortis Hotels Pink weekends. Derick decided to start an initiative where he could fuse exclusively gay weekends within the hotel environment. His vision was to create weekends away for LGBTI people which allows them to enjoy a safe environment wherein they can be themselves and enjoy a breakaway with their partner and friends without being judged or getting any uncomfortable stares from the public eye.
The hotel is exclusively pre-booked for attendees of the Pink weekends exclusively and no other Guests are allowed during such a weekend. A two night’s package is put together on a discounted rate per person sharing or a single rate. The packages normally includes accommodation, meals and entertainment for the weekend. This is where the Fortis Hotels Pink Weekends were born. We have had two very successful weekends, one at Protea Hotel Malaga in October 2015 and another in March 2016 and both weekends were a great success.
The weekends are growing from strength to strength with very positive feedback. We are planning a few more weekends this Year. We have launched the Fortis Hotels Pink Weekend Club in March 2016 and you can also now become a member by registering on the Fortis Hotels Pink Weekends webpage.
