Situated on the Indian Ocean shoreline in the rugged bush, the Wild Coast Sun is one of South Africa's oldest and most popular casinos, with a 3-star hotel and a professional golf course attached.


Wild Coast Sun sits right on the shores of the Indian Ocean, in a rural area occupying 750 hectares of bushland on South Africa's East coast. Around it flows the Umtamvana and Mzamba rivers, which round off this idyllic natural setting.

This situation provides plenty of natural beauty to explore alongside the entertainment facilities, and the two create an energizing and relaxing contrast to be enjoyed. There is a 3-star hotel in the complex with conference facilities.

Hotel and Lodging Facilities

The Wild Coast Sun is part of the Sun International hotel group, and adheres to their high standards. It is a 3-star establishment, but the beautiful unspoiled natural surroundings more than make up for the other two stars.

The hotel is right on the Indian Ocean shoreline, and you can literally step out onto the beach. Surrounded by subtropical bush and bordered by two rivers, the views are nothing short of spectacular. Consequently there are many nature-related activities that visitors can indulge in.

There are a number of bush trails to stroll along, more strenuous hikes, and beach walks. The ocean offers surfing, deep-sea fishing and scuba diving, as well as leisurely boating activities, like romantic sunset cruises.

There are local arts and crafts markets to explore, which means plenty of authentic souvenirs for tourists. For wildlife enthusiasts, there are nearby nature reserves and bird-watching sites.

Sports lovers have a world-class professional golf course to play, that will challenge anyone. Ernie Els, Seve Ballesteros, Nick Faldo, Bernhard Langer and Nick Price have all played there. In addition there are plenty of other sports available.

Inside the hotel all the mod cons are available, and a variety of different room types to suit all needs. There is a Health and Beauty Centre and an outdoor swimming pool for those who prefer it to the ocean. Plenty of entertainment facilities, restaurants and bars with different themes are on hand.

Of course there is also the Wild Coast Casino, one of South Africa's oldest and most patronised casinos.

The conference facility has conference rooms, an auditorium and 2 ballrooms. This caters for small groups of around 20, large conferences of up to 680 delegates and large dinner functions seating about 620 guests.

The conference facilities are fully-equipped with the latest technology - there is a detailed list below.

Within easy reach of the major city of Durban, the Wild Coast Sun is an idyllic getaway location for a true experience of the African bush, but with all creature comforts and amenities on hand.
