The Sun International brand has a proud legacy in the gaming, hospitality and entertainment sector. Its superior hotels and resorts portfolio makes it a recognised premium brand. We boast a diverse portfolio of assets including world class five-star hotels, modern and well-located casinos and some of the world’s premier resorts. Our destinations offer experiential luxury, enduring quality and incredible adventure, supported by an authentic dedication to personal service.
Today, we're one of Africa’s largest tourism, leisure and gaming groups and we operate or have an interest in a total of 18 resorts, luxury hotels and casinos. Our entry into Latin America began in Chile in 2008 and has been a success story for the group, giving us the track record and confidence to look for more opportunities that offer gaming opportunities in the region.
Our real competitive advantage stems from the fact that we have a compelling and global competence in both the development and operation of casinos, hotels and resorts and, at the same time, we are extremely comfortable operating in emerging markets. Our approach has been to differentiate our hotels, resorts and casinos in architecture, service, experience, location and the mix of entertainment and activities.
Creating lasting memories for our guests and customers is a core part of our DNA. We’ve created some the world’s most iconic hotels from The Palace of The Lost City at Sun City to The Table Bay Hotel in Cape Town. The creative architecture of these properties and the blending of their designs with their local environment make each property unique. We were the pioneer of gaming in southern Africa, having brought casinos to this part of the world in the late 1970s.
The opening of Sun City set the standard for large-scale international events in South Africa, which continues today. Sun City is also home to the Nedbank Golf Challenge which has attracted the world’s best golfers for over two decades. From the hosting of Miss South Africa to World Heavyweight title fights, the Sun City Superbowl remains the preferred venue for international events and entertainment.
We place a strong emphasis on being responsible corporate citizens through our contributions and commitment to the economy, communities and the environment. We are committed to the development of all our employees and we make sure that equal opportunities and economic empowerment form the backbone of our human resource practices.
