Johannesburg - Sun City opened in 1979 and over the years has become South Africa’s best known and most loved resort.
To grow its popularity still further, the complex is in the final stages of a more than R1-billion revamp. This will entrench its position as one of South Africa’s favourite lifestyle destinations.
Since it was first built, Sun City has been recognised as the destination that provides something for everyone – from luxury travellers to fun-seeking families, couples looking for a romantic getaway or adrenalin-seekers looking for the very best adventure.
Continuing that tradition is the revitalisation of the Cabanas hotel which after its upgrade now offers a trendy, modern island-style atmosphere for all guests to enjoy.
Says Mike Van Vuuren, Resort General Manager of Sun City: “The Cabanas hotel offers a fantastic mix of accommodation and services. It’s in a perfect setting for guests near the Sun City Waterworld Lake, ensuring they have a base from which to explore the resort.”
Part of the extensive upgrade is the Valley of Waves, known as one of the greatest water parks in Africa and very popular with Cabanas guests.
A complete transformation of the Valley of Waves includes the addition of two new slides, Nobel’s Descent and Ovango. The food and beverage offering at the Valley of Waves has also been reinvigorated to ensure a fun foodie beach side experience. Guests now have the choice of two new food outlets to choose from, The Brew Monkey and Food Factory.
The Brew Monkey is a gastro pub with a rustic microbrewery feel that overlooks the wave pool, and Food Factory is a fast food outlet offering a selection of freshly prepared meals.
Said Van Vuuren: “We invite people to come and experience the changes for themselves. Take a slide down the Noble’s Descent and enjoy a burger on the beach with friends and family and end your day around the fire pits at Cabanas. There is something for everyone and we’re really excited about creating lasting memories with our guests.”
