The Table Bay's General Manager Joanne Selby said: "Throughout Sun International's long history with the pageant, it was never an option to host it at The Table Bay as we have always had guests staying with us. We've been closed since the beginning of the lockdown, but with the announcement that international borders will open, we are getting ready to do so too. The timing is fortuitous as it is just prior to a spectacular official opening we're planning for October 30. 

"We will host the Top 10 Miss South Africa finalists and a few guests in the week leading up to the pageant. We know that the contest has many followers so we will introduce special Miss South Africa packages for guests who would like to stay with us during this time. We will announce these on our website shortly. 

"We can also assure anyone who would like to stay with us that we have stringent Covid-19 health and safety protocols in place to ensure the safety of our guests. Both our hotel and the V&A Waterfront have also been certified by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) with the international 'Safe Travels' destination stamp. This confirms our protocols match or exceed internationally benchmarked protocols." 

CEO of the Miss South Africa Organisation, Stephanie Weil, is thrilled that this year's pageant will be taking place at The Table Bay.
