IIf you walk north along Durban’s Golden Mile early in the 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 and Entertainment World, complete with pastel colours and palm trees.
For the gamblers in our midst, Suncoast is tops. More than 1 850 slot machines and 71 gaming tables combine with an exclusive alon 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 20 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 and 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 and Towers is all about curries (the Durban theme) and seafood – but don’t miss out on their famous English breakfast.
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.
