Sun City’s accommodation choices have now been expanded to include the rustic Cabanas Chalets. Located 750m from the Cabanas hotel, the lodge is nestled beside the Letsatsi bush, close to the resort’s popular Shebeen and Cultural Village. Owned and operated since 1999 by Kwena Gardens, which included Kwena Chalets and Crocodile Sanctuary, the chalets have now been incorporated into the Sun City fold under the management of Sun International.

Cabanas Chalets harnesses the African spirit of its surroundings with each room offering an immersion in nature yet at one with the Sun International experience.

There are 14 chalets, each accommodating between one and four people, including a Luxury Chalet, offering a king-sized bed, separate living area and an en-suite bathroom. Although they offer an authentically rustic experience, they are fully equipped with mini bars, a coffee machine and WiFi.

Sun City’s Managing Executive, Mike van Vuuren says: “The Cabanas Chalets offer holidaymakers to Sun City a new, very special experience. Located securely within the confines of the resort but neatly tucked away from the bustle, Cabanas Chalets offer guests a serene sanctuary while allowing them easy access to the resort’s facilities and action. Sun City is delighted to continue the proud heritage of the chalets.”
