Sun City Hotel
The Soho Hotel lies at the heart of Sun City, adjacent to the legendary Gary Player Golf Course. This striking tribute to hedonism was the first Hotel to be built on the grounds of the internationally renowned Pilanesberg-based resort. The Soho’s bold extravagance is evident from the moment you enter the lobby which is alive with lush foliage, enchanting water features, faux rock designs, and the buzz of slot machines. The four-star Soho Hotel has various accommodation options, from luxury twin rooms to superior luxury family rooms, from delightful ground-floor luxury suites to a decadent presidential suite. Wheelchair accessible rooms are also available. All the rooms and suites offer panoramic views of the expansive subtropical gardens out across to the pristine Waterworld Lake. Free Wi-Fi and a buffet breakfast spread are included in the Hotel’s rates. The Soho Hotel is the ideal vacation destination to trade the stress and strain of daily life for a slice of sheer indulgence. Enjoy a mini-safari experience with a day trip to the Pilanesberg Game Reserve, world-famous for its diversity of bird- and wildlife, including the Big 5. Immerse yourself in the glamour and glitz of Sun City’s pulsing nightlife. Or raise the stakes in one of the resort’s many casinos. Treat your taste buds to the exotic flavours of traditional Asian fare in the Orchid Restaurant. Pay homage to the “local is lekker” * vibe with a visit to the Calabash Restaurant which specialises in mouth-watering South African cuisine. Succumb to the allure of the sparkling pool where you can laze away another perfect afternoon in the company of a long, cool cocktail.
*literally means “local is lovely”
