The Cascades Hotel is the grand old lady of Sun City and has an air of timeless elegance, sophistication and understated luxury - it's easy to see why visitors who are familiar with Sun City often choose The Cascades Hotel as their favourite. All rooms face the landscaped gardens which offer seclusion and escape from the hustle and bustle of the rest of Sun City, as well as providing a peaceful setting to relax in and let the holiday spirit take over.

The Cascades offers the best of both worlds. You can stay in a calm retreat but will always have the allure of Sun City's activities and attractions on your doorstep - golf courses, waterslides and a recreational lake are the main drawcards - but there is also the entertainment centre, casino and the artificial beach at the Valley of the Waves to look forward to as well.


  • The modern and stylish option at Sun City
  • Close to the resort's main entertainment area and the Valley of the Waves
  • Spacious rooms with views of the garden and pools
  • Be greeted by a team of friendly staff with drinks and treats in hand


  • Golf
  • Motorised water activities
  • Day tours


Luxury Twin Room

The 243 rooms at The Cascades Hotel have views across tropical gardens to the golf course and mountains beyond and feature satellite TV, radio, air conditioning, telephone and a mini bar. Each en suite bathroom has a dressing room, separate shower and bath and double vanities.

The Luxury Suites at The Cascades Hotel have a spacious lounge area with views of the distant mountains while the sumptuous Presidential Suites - with one, two or three-bedroomed options - have a lounge area, dining area and a lovely outdoor patio. Some even feature indoor and outdoor jacuzzis, saunas and private gardens.


Wander along the interlaced footpaths that meander through the hotel's tropical gardens and past lakes and waterfalls to find a sun lounger on the expansive pool deck.

You can also take a dip in the heated swimming pool or jacuzzi - younger children will love the kiddies swimming pool.

Experience a bit of beach life by lying on the private sandy beach and ordering a cocktail from the sand bar.

Play a game of tennis, enjoy a professional tennis coaching session or make use of the squash courts.

As guests at Cascades Hotel you have access to all the Sun City activities and facilities including the two world-class golf courses, the Health Spa, the artificial beach at Valley of the Waves as well as Waterworld at the Lake and of course the Entertainment Centre with its wide range of restaurants and fast food outlets, video games, cinemas, live shows and casino.

Your children can be entertained and supervised by professional staff at the in-house Kids Club - Camp Kwena - and facilities such as the animal farm and adventure playground.

From the way we were welcomed by our porter George, to the reception, the room and the breakfast, I was quite impressed by the personalised customer- friendly service by all staff members. We enjoyed the breakfast menu and the ambience in the Peninsu la Restaurant. During lunch at The Bar, the band sang us a song to celebrate our 15-year wedding anniversary.

The 2 days at Sun City were a marvelous end to our 3 weeks in Southern Africa. It is about 16 years since I stayed there last and it lived up to the billing I had given my wife. The member of staff that stood out for us was Lydia the Concierge, very helpful and friendly, a great asset. Thanks so much for making the plans and for the follow up.

"The kids thoroughly enjoyed their time at Sun City and so did we. We were happy with our accommodations at the Cascades and had a lot of fun at the Valley of the Waves, the Maze and the Crocodile sanctuary."

Nina Beresford

We had a great time at Sun City. The resort was beautiful. The kids really enjoyed the Valley of the Waves and the many pools. We got lost in the maze and had a great time at the crocodile farm. The arcade in the entertainment center was also a h it with the kids. Sun City was definitely worth the trip and I am glad that we stayed for 4 nights as it gave us enough time to explore the entire resort.

"So when it s raining so much in Sun City, the list of activity is certainly reduced but we took time to relax. The Cascades was very good, and food in various restaurant was excellent."

Maxine Goldsmith

We had a lovely holiday even thought we had heavy rain for most of our stay, but there isn't much you can do about that. We are seriously thinking about returning next February. The staff at all levels were fantastic , what ever you asked of them t hey delivered. They have revamped and changed the layout on the reception and bar areas, the outdoor bar area serves drinks and snacks until 11h00pm, it's a lovely area to sit and have a drink morning, noon and night. Our rooms were spacious and clean and had all that you needed for a great stay. The restaurant Santorini in the Cascades was fantastic we ate most evenings there. The menu was varied and plentiful , it catered for everyone. The service was also very good. I would recommend booking in advance as it was very busy almost every evening. I visited The Gary Player Spa , again the staff were very welcoming and helpful, I had a couple of treatments which were fantastic and some of the cheapest I've found. The breakfast at The Cascades had a wonderful selection and choice of food both hot and cold and what you couldn't find they would make it for you.

We had a great time at the Cascades Hotel where we were upgraded to a junior suite which was excellent. The staff at the hotel were incredibly helpful and efficient which made for a lovely holiday. The golf bookings went smoothly, it was just unfort unate that there had been so much rain which made the courses very soggy - luckily it only rained at night! We went on a safari drive which was well organised and went well and saw quite a lot of game.

Scott Wilson

The Cascades were great and a fantastic end to our vacation, and the prices were great, even my South African friends were amazed at the prices you got for us. Overall rating is very high 9.5/10. The staff, hotel, grounds and pools were immaculate. J ust needs better free Wi-Fi, but then that could be said for the whole of Africa (Were spoiled in Canada with that) thanks again and I’ll be recommending your services to all my South African and Canadian friends.

We had the best holiday of our life at Sun City. Our stay at the Cascades was superb and we enjoyed the sundowners.

And we will definitely got to Sun City again... As I'm writing this email Im re-living our time and I'm all smiles. We had a great time, we really had a great time and will definitely visit Sun City again.

Charlotte Badman

We had a fantastic time at Sun City, thank you, there was a huge array of activities for the children, which made for a very relaxing holiday! The transfers were super, and we definitely felt Cascades was the correct hotel choice for us, largely due to its location next to the Entertainment Centre and proximity to the Valley of the Waves. We are hoping to return next Christmas time, so I will be in touch with you in due course.

Gustavo Vieira

The place is huge and very beautiful. These hotels are really beautiful and we could notice that everywhere there were special details everywhere we looked. The service was also good. On the first day we had the chance to have dinner at The Palace of the Lost City and on the second day, we went to the gigantic pool of the Valley of the Waves and enjoyed all the amuses they had to offer. We would recommend this hotel to people who want to have a good time and relax. In summary, our stay in this hotel was according to our expectations.

Sonia Akpata

The Cascades was a wonderful experience. The staff were really attentive and extremely polite and professional. The rooms were exquisite and my balconey view was like looking out over paradise. The facilities were wonderful. I played tennis on a gre at court with a brilliant instructor, and the pool was lovely, although too cold for us West Africans used to heat all year round. The dining was good, and we enjoyed the hotel buffet breakfasts with its lovely staff,and the restaurant Santorini and fishmonger for its incredible sushi. The kids and I enjoyed the games at the entertainment centre. We enjoyed a movie at the cinema, and the kids stuffed burgers at the convenient fast food outlets. The mini mall was great because we got to buy some well needed warm clothes and also have a pharmacy close by for convenient little buys. The safari was the highlight of the trip, as we were able to safely watch the animals with an experienced guide. So all and all, attention to detail and the constant care from the concierge made this a go to, and definitely a return journey for us. Well done Sun City staff.

The Cascades Hotel, it is just absolutely great!! We enjoyed very much our stay in the hotel. The workers were nice, helpful and reliable. It was good to receive phone calls from the hotel to make sure that we were fine. The restaurant Santorini in t he hotel was absolutely excellent. We loved all what we ordered there. Their fillet of kingklip, fillet of sole and french fries were just the best ever! However, I found that the persons in charge of cleaning up the room including bathroom always missed to put or recharge the equipment of the room (glasses of wine, mineral water, gel bath, etc). The bed of the children was not comfortable either. I suggest to change the spiral of the bed as it was too bended and therefore it was not good for our back.

We had a wonderful time! The Cascades service was excellent. We enjoyed the Game Reserve next door and had dinner in the Lost City Hotel on our last evening. Stuart played golf and managed to book another Tee time at the Gary Player which he thought was one of the best courses he had ever played!

Peter Webb

Sun City Cascades - another amazing place and complex - our children just loved the water slides and wave pool and we didn't mind them too much either! Heather and I had a game of golf on the Gary Player course together which was very nice and relaxi ng. We think the Cascades was definitely the best option for our family and a perfect end to our holiday. Again, for a family of four I would probably suggest going for another or bigger room to the one we had.

Our vacation in the Cascades hotel Sun city was amazing, no words to describe. As we entered the room a plate of fruits & a bottle of champagne were waiting for us. We had a beautiful room and we found the hotel to be very good and the service and st aff very friendly. The area was very well maintained and the only down side is that we had only one night stay, we wish to come back for more.
