SUNCOAST cranks up the heat this winter!

Did you know that the month of May was originally named Maia, after the Greek goddess of fertility?

In Ancient Roman religion and myth, Maia embodied the concept of growth; as her name was thought to be related to the comparative adjective “larger, greater”. We found this to be an interesting and fitting fact that relates directly to exciting things happening here at Suncoast.

As the winter season approaches with its cloudy and wet weather that is perfect for snuggling on the couch, with a warm blanket and popcorn whilst watching reruns of Game of Thrones, we here at SUNCOAST have decided to crank up the heat and entertainment.


It all starts with our BIG WEEKENDS promotion, which offers guests a chance to win their share of R 50,000 every day from Friday to Saturday when they play anyone of their favourite slot machines. There is also a chance of winning a 2016 Mazda 2 valued at R 180,000 which comes with fog lamps, 7inch” full colour touch screen, Bluetooth and more! It’s the perfect time to also take advantage of our Suncoast Rewards Programme, signing up is FREE and members enjoy discounts at participating restaurants, cinema, hotels and other Tsogo Sun properties.


Whisky Live is back at SUNCOAST offering whisky connoisseurs and first timers the opportunity to sample some of the world’s best whisky blends. One of the most exciting brands to come to Whisky Live this year is Glenfarclas, who launched their 60 Year Old Glenfarclas malt whisky, only 360 bottles of this incredibly desirable, rare single malt whisky were produced and a single bottle costs a heart-burning R 360,000.00!


Parkrun athletes brave Durb’s crisp mornings every Saturday with over 1000 runners taking part every single week. The SUNCOAST Amphitheatre continues to be set ablaze, with red hot dance lessons, thanks to Open Air Salsa which is hosted by the Red Salsa team. You should come and have a try, it’s fun and FREE.


If dancing is not for you then you can always attend SUNDAY BEATS! This month we have 2Unique, a local Durban 3 piece band whose musical style of R&B is sure to get you forgetting all your worries and having a good time.

Children and adults alike are sure to have a good time with the Surf & Skate School, who teach guests how to surf or skate on the promenade like a seasoned veteran. It’s an activity that is suitable for all ages and really is a great way to spend a lazy Saturday or Sunday on the magnificent beachfront.


Foodies will be glad to know that Café Vigour have added a few exciting and extremely tasty dishes to their already jam packed menu. One of our personal favourites is the eggs benedict, the perfect breakfast to have on a weekend.


SUNCOAST Towers, Durban’s landmark boutique hotel continues to offer impeccable service and a priceless view of the Durban skyline and sunrise from the Indian Ocean. The SUNbreak holiday promotion continues letting you save 15% when you book 21 days in advance, and with the Durban July coming up soon its best you start booking.


Make sure to also take advantage of our May Spoils at the SUNCOAST Spa located on the 9th floor of the SUNCOAST Towers. There are a number of package treatments that range from two to two and a half hours of pampering that will soothe the body, mind and soul.

In the next few months SUNCOAST will continue bringing the fun, excitement and entertainment. It MAY be the 5th month of the year and the last month before winter but as you can see; the SUN is still blazing here on the COAST! So come feel the beat with SUNCOAST!
