The resort scooped the awards for Africa’s Leading Resort and Africa’s Leading Casino Resort for 2019, trumping top destinations from across the African continent in these categories.

The World Travel Awards™ was established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all key sectors of the travel tourism & hospitality industry. Today, the World Travel Awards™ brand is recognised globally as the ultimate hallmark of quality, with winners setting the benchmark to which all others aspire.

The annual awards programme covers the globe with a series of regional gala ceremonies staged to recognise and celebrate individual and collective successes within each geographical region. The winners of World Travel Awards Africa and Indian Ocean 2019 were revealed in Mauritius earlier this month. These gala ceremonies are regarded as milestone events in the industry calendar, attended by the industry’s key decision makers, chief figure heads and the key trade and consumer media.

Commenting on the awards, Sun City’s Marketing Manager, Thapelo Modise, said: “We are honoured that Sun City has claimed awards in two categories in the regional World Travel Awards™ programme. To still be recognised as amongst the best on the continent after 40 years is a source of tremendous pride.

“These awards show that we are indeed succeeding in creating the types of experiences 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.”

It has been 40 years since Sun International’s legendary Sun City opened its doors, marking the start of a new era in leisure and entertainment for South Africa. Emerging from the dry African bush in what was then known as Bophuthatswana, the resort, launched by hotel magnate Sol Kerzner, instantly captured the hearts and imaginations of entertainment-hungry South Africans. For the first time, they could enjoy concerts by international bands and artists, leisure activities and the thrill of glamour gambling at one encompassing destination.

Over time, Sun City has evolved into one of the most exciting and all-encompassing entertainment and leisure destinations in the country.
