sun-city-wins-coveted-best-resort-and-casino-awardSun International’s flagship casino and resort, Sun City, has proven once more that it is leagues above its competition. The casino won two awards in the World Travel Awards – a prestigious annual ceremony.

Sun City was recognized as the best in two categories:

• Africa’s Leading Resort
• Africa’s Leading Casino Resort

Competition was fierce as Sun City contended against top destinations across the entire African continent in these categories.

The marketing manager of Sun City, Thapelo Madise said that the group was honored that Sun City had claimed awards in both categories in the Regional World Travel Awards program.

“To still be recognized as among the best on the continent after 40 years is a source of tremendous pride,” said Modise.

“These awards show that we are indeed succeeding in creating the types of experience that live long in the memories and hearts of our guests. It is, after all, the guest experience which is the key differentiator. We will continue to focus on ensuring that our guests’ experiences are always exceptional.”

Established in 1993, the World Travel Awards celebrate excellence across all sectors of the travel, tourism and hospitality industry.

For four decades, Sun City has established itself as South Africa’s leading luxury resort and casino. The resort, located two hours’ drive from Johannesburg, was developed by Sol Kerzner as part of his Sun International group.

Today, Sun City is one of Africa’s premier vacation destinations. It boasts superb hotels, casinos and other attractions and regularly hosts world-class events.

There are four hotels that form part of Sun City – the Cascades Hotel, The Cabanas, Palace of the Lost City and the Soho Hotel.
