4-star upgrade for border-straddling beach resort hotel

Home Business Management Tourism 4-star upgrade for border-straddling beach resort hotel

THE Tourism Grading Council of South Africa (TGCSA) has upgraded Sun International’s family-friendly Wild Coast Sun beachfront resort to four stars in the hotel category, following a range of upgrades and improvements recently made to the property.

First established in the 1970s on the Mtamvuna River border between the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal, The Wild Coast Sun is Sun International’s only beachfront resort.

In addition to considering the hotel and restaurant amenities, the TGCSA also considered the star quality of the broader resort and its activities including family friendliness, responsible tourism, water sports, cycling, equestrian, golfing award, hiking, holistic wellness, and spas and beauty. The resort’s conferencing facility was also graded to four stars.

Accepting the award, The Wild Coast Sun GM Peter Tshidi said, “This award recognises the hard work we have invested in improving the property. Even during lockdown we were not idle but all pulled together to ensure that the TGCSA would see our property‘s star quality.”

The resort is 5km from Port Edward and straddles the border between KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Cape provinces. It is a two-hour drive from Durban’s King Shaka International Airport and a 90-minute drive from Durban and 30-minute drive from Margate Airport.
