Sun International property receives top international award
Sun International’s only beachfront resort, Wild Coast Sun in Port Edward, has been honoured by being named the winner of the 14th annual Luxury Lifestyle Awards category ‘Best Luxury Beach Resort in South Africa’.
The Luxury Lifestyle Awards recognise excellence across the range of industry sectors and maintain the highest standards worldwide. “After a thorough research process, Wild Coast Sun Resort has been distinguished as one of the best in this market. Your impeccable reputation and professional performance have been recognised and acknowledged” said the award certificate.
In the past year, the Resort has seen multi-millions spent on upgrades to new and existing facilities, following improvements made leading up to Wild Coast Sun being raised from a three to a four-star resort, in 2020.
Wild Coast Sun General Manager Peter Tshidi said the popular golfing, gambling and beachfront destination hotel was already fully booked by October for the 2022 festive season, with a maximum capacity from 16 December 2022 to mid-January 2023.
Guests visiting over the holidays were among the first to try The Magic Company’s R6.4-million indoor Skypark facility. The structure, which is over 18 metres high, has 21 rope obstacles on a skytrail and a built-in zipline skyrail.
The hotel saw two new franchised restaurants open their doors last year to keep guests fed – Barcelos, the home of flame-grilled chicken, and Maltos, a Mediterranean restaurant reminiscent of the Greek isles. “Our in-house breakfast and private function restaurant, Chico’s, also enjoyed a R5,5-million make-over and the beautiful new dining floor and bathrooms proved popular with our guests when it was revealed in December,” Tshidi said.
“Wild Coast Sun does not intend to rest on our laurels – we have plenty more of exciting news about improvements and new additions which will be announced later this year.”
