36 years after its opening, and after a five-year R1-billion refurbishment, the Sun City Resort in Pilanesberg has set its sights on growing its popularity still further, and on increasing its share of the growing conventions and meetings business in South Africa.
With the inclusion of the numerous dining, entertainment, gaming, sport and leisure activity options available within the resort, and its proximity to the adjacent Pilanesberg Game Reserve, Sun City is also a prime destination for incentive group travellers as well.
“Sun City has remained popular since its opening, but we felt it needed a complete overhaul and took the decision to invest over a billion Rand to do just that. 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, eco-tourists and millennials.
“We are confident that with this massive refurb and upgrade, Sun City will not only retain its status as South Africa’s favourite leisure destination, but will also recapture its place as the premier convention venue in the country.”
Michael Farr, Group General Manager for Brand and Communications
In addition to the new contemporary styled rooms and refreshed decor at the Cabanas and the self-catering Sun Vacation Club apartments, visitors will find:
- A brand-new Sun Central Entertainment Centre boasting a suite of new family experiences, as well as a South African Hall of Fame honouring South Africa’s outstanding sportspeople and performing artists.

- The new, highly flexible Sun Park indoor events area and outdoor space, capable of hosting a range of lifestyle events, music festivals and corporate launches.
