Meet the new Owners

Over the past three years with the help of a very loyal and hardworking team, my vision for Warm Karoo has been realised, a once run of the mill venue has developed into a Magical top class Wedding and Function Venue winning numerous awards.


The new team is made up of four very talented individuals who are no strangers to the hospitality industry, and we are all very excited for the growth and future of Warm Karoo. It is with great pleasure that we introduce Beyers, Isa, Ezio & Louise!

Beyers & Isa Myburgh

Beyers is a born business man with his roots firmly established in Bloemfontein. After having owned and operated Innes Guesthouse, Beyers opened the first Urban Hotel in Bloemfontein in 2008 and then branched the Urban Hotel Concept to Kathu in 2013.

Isa is a qualified Chef who studied at the Institute of Culinary Arts in Stellenbosch. After that, she spent a year in London developing and honing her skills at Waddesdon Manor before returning to Bloemfontein to manage Innes Guesthouse. During the course of the past year, Isa has been one of the Chefs at The Kitchens Fine Dining Food and Wine Evenings at Warm Karoo, making her no stranger to the workings of the Venue.

Ezio & Louise Panelatti

Louise is a qualified Chef and obtained her Diploma in Hospitality Management from Bloemfontein's Central University of Technology. Together with her husband Ezio, they opened the first, now well-known Avanti restaurant.

Ezio is Italian and although he was raised and schooled in Bloemfontein he has inherited his Family's Italian passion and love of Great food which gives great authenticity to their Italian Restaurants, Avanti Westdene & Avanti Woodland Hills.

Their Italian Style Cuisine is to die for, and may most definitely be considered to be one of the Best restaurants in the City.

Together this team is going to take Warm Karoo and The Kitchen to the next level and you can look forward to some very exciting additions & world-class experiences that Bloemfontein has never seen before. Watch this space, we promise that you will not be disappointed.

Thank you to each bride, client & supplier that supported us the past 3 years, it was an absolute pleasure working with you.
