The art-deco style SunCoast Casino & Entertainment World – Durban's largest casino – offers travellers a variety of gambling opportunities, a wide choice of fabulous restaurants and retail outlets, movie theatres, top-class entertainment and private beach access.

Did you know?

  • The Suncoast Casino is the largest single property development investment on Durban's beachfront.

As you walk north along Durban’s Golden Mile early one morning, you will suddenly feel you’ve landed up in the middle of a Miami Art Deco dream.

You’ve arrived at the strikingly designed SunCoast Casino & Entertainment World, complete with pastel colours and palm trees.

For the gamblers in our midst, SunCoast is tops. More than 1 450 slot machines and 50 gaming tables combine with an exclusive Salon Prive to bring in the punters, the day-trippers and those with long pockets.

Once the gambling’s over, you can take some time out for a drink and perhaps catch your favourite sport on TV at the Casino Lounge Bar.

Near the casino are 18 restaurants and fast-food outlets, a movie complex and a large number of retail shops. For the kids, there’s an entertainment arcade close by. There are also child-minders, doctors and dentists on call for last-minute emergencies.

The SunCoast Hotel & Towers is another Art Deco masterpiece and offers stunning views of the Indian Ocean. The hotel sports 128 rooms and on the ninth floor is a massive health and beauty spa for those gamblers who sat at the tables all through the night.

The restaurant at the SunCoast Hotel & Towers is all about curries (the Durban theme) and seafood – but don’t miss out on their famous English Breakfast either.

In the evenings, the cocktail bar is humming with business and live music as gamblers and regular visitors rub shoulders in style.

The SunCoast Boardwalk is perfect for walks along the beach and also has an amphitheatre that hosts regular shows and performances.
