Having undergone a recent refurbishment Cascades is a great place to stay and enjoy the wonderful array of activities that Sun City has to offer. The grounds are dotted with waterfalls and streams that flow through lush, verdant forests, hence the name Cascades. The man-made lagoons and waterways offer refuge to countless flamingos, swans and other birdlife. The tropical environment is an oasis in the dry African bushveld, dotted with colourful orchids and other plants.
The rooms are across several different categories and also feature family rooms and suites. All have air-conditioning, WiFi, tea and coffee station, safe, hairdryer, telephone, TV and modern en-suite bathrooms. Blackout curtains and soundproofing come as standard too.
There is a stunning azure blue heated outdoor pool for all to enjoy complete with a beach, sun loungers and swaying palm trees. There's a kiddies only pool too. Set by the pool you will find the Luma Bar and Lounge, relax and enjoy a light lunch here or a refreshing sundowner as you watch the setting sun. The Bocado restaurant has a family focus, enjoy lunch or dinner alfresco. For something a little more formal, the Peninsula Restaurant offers international dishes, both a la carte and also buffet style, so there is something to fit every occasion, every mood and every taste.
