The Sun City resort has unveiled a new look following extensive modernization.


[dropcap]S[/dropcap]un City resort in South Africa has reopened its doors after $7m in modernising refurbishments.

Michael Farr, the group general manager for brand and communications at Sun International, said that while Sun City remains popular, the R1bn investment was necessary to keep its appeal growing.

“We’ve put this investment into making the resort even more attractive to families, gamblers, convention visitors and a host of new, niche tourists, such as adrenalin-seekers, ecotourists and millennials,” Farr said.

Farr added that the group was confident with this upgrade which would retain its status as South Africa’s seminal leisure destination and also reestablish its reputation as the country’s premier convention venue.

“Sun City remains the jewel in Sun International’s crown, setting the benchmark for leisure and business travel,” Farr went on. “Creating lasting memories for our guests is a core part of Sun International’s DNA and this is especially true of Sun City.”

Also included in the upgrades were sweeping changes to the hotels, restaurants and bars; a new VIP gaming experience; an entertainment centre; new indoor events area and outdoor space; additions to the watersports offering and an adventure hub for extreme sports.

The new gaming area now provides a personalised service, select food offers, bar and VIP Concierge Desk. 60 high stake slots and 12 tables including Baccarat, Roulette, Poker and Blackjack will now be made available to guests.
