Suncoast Casino, Hotels and Entertainment is bigger and certainly better. The R1.6 billion upgrade was launched this month, in time for the upcoming festive season boom. The Reimagined Suncoast has more entertainment, eateries, slots and the floor space has increased to 48 012m², the equivalent of five rugby fields.
There are 10 new eateries, 3 retail outlets, increased casino space, a newly located Salon Privé with 180-degree sea views and the Barnyard Theatre. Apart from the increase in local and international travellers, 1 400 temporary and 700 permanent jobs were created. Glenn Joseph, COO of Tsogo Sun Gaming, said they spent over R4 billion on casino and hotel refurbishments in the past five years.
“Capitalising on the location sets it apart from any other entertainment destination in the KZN region. Suncoast’s sea-facing façade has been opened up, creating a family-friendly environment on the lower-level and a Salon Privé unlike any on the continent, with spectacular views of the Indian Ocean.
It looks like Suncoast will be the place to visit this summer.
