ENJOY GQEBERHA’S BOARDWALK PRECINCT THIS WINTER
Instead of spending the school holidays shivering inside your house, coping with a chorus of “I’m bored” from your brood, why not head to Gqeberha to enjoy its mild winter climate in the luxurious surrounds of the Boardwalk Hotel.
The ultimate family destination, the 4-star Sun International Boardwalk Hotel has expansive views over the Indian Ocean from every bedroom. “Our guests can step out of their spacious suites and enjoy a walk along the beautiful promenade on sunny days,” said Boardwalk general manager Tati Tsunke.
After a delicious buffet breakfast, including treats like flapjacks with chocolate spread for the kids, enjoy a swim in the indoor heated pool. Children between the ages of 10 and 17 can visit Sun Gamers, an online video gaming lounge, where they can show off their Fifa skills and clear missions on Fortnite and Call of Duty under adult supervision – while dad enjoys a round of golf at the nearby Humewood Golf Course and mom has a relaxing treatment at the award-winning Camelot Spa.
For over 18-punters who enjoy the thrill of tables games or slot machines, Boardwalk Casino offers American Roulette, Blackjack Switch, Poker and Baccarat as well as hundreds of different slot machines, in both smoking and non-smoking casinos. Sun MVG loyalty members also get discounts at an array of eateries across the precinct.
Enjoy high tea in true Bridgerton style in the Lobby Lounge on Saturday afternoons, with a sumptuous spread of finger sandwiches, quiches and sweet treats by chef Willie Mcotoyi and his team.
Shopping is a breeze, as the first phase of the new Boardwalk Mall opened its doors in March, offering an exciting mix of kids’ entertainment, retail and restaurants adjacent to the Hotel. The Magic Company offers arcade games while Nu Metro screens the latest PG movies, including Lightyear, Minions: Rise of Gru, and Thor: Love and Thunder. Take advantage of the winter special at Kid’s Corner creche and leave your little ones in the care of qualified childminders. The facility accommodates kids aged 6 months to 10 years.
“Boardwalk truly is a one-stop family destination where the kids will be well taken care of, in a safe and clean environment. What’s more, you can enjoy your holiday without worrying about the threat of loadshedding or watershedding, meaning your holiday is ‘always on’,” Tsunke said.
