All of Sun International’s restaurants and casino properties will be temporarily closed from Monday 28 June 2021, in line with new COVID-19 regulations announced by the President last night.

The Group has also taken a decision to temporarily close some of its Hotels and Resorts, including Sun City Resort and Wild Coast Sun. The Table Bay hotel in Cape Town and Boardwalk hotel in Gqeberha will remain open.

Graham Wood, Group COO: Hospitality explained, “The new regulations require our casinos and restaurants to close, but given the new restrictions on leisure travel into and out of Gauteng, alcohol and the curfew, our Hotels and Resorts will struggle to operate, so we have taken a decision to temporarily close them too.

We are mindful that Government is concerned about the risk of transmission and the need to curtail the rise in new infections. However, these restrictions will have a further negative impact on our Tourism industry, the thousands of people employed and the surrounding local communities. We remain hopeful that the worst of the latest COVID-19 outbreak will have subsided 14 days from now so that we can safely reopen our Hotels, Resorts and Casinos.”

Sun International’s online sports betting platform, SunBet, will continue to be operational, as will Federal Palace in Nigeria.

Existing Hotel reservations that are scheduled for arrival up to and including 15 July 2021 can be changed to an alternative date for stay by 30 November 2021 or cancelled at no charge. All deposits will be refunded in case of cancellation. Similarly, Sun Vacation Club reservations can be postponed to a future date or space banked.
