The main hotel at storm-ravaged Sun City will be out of commission until the new year.
The world-famous holiday resort said on Wednesday that it had completed most of its mop-up operations after a severe storm on Saturday caused damage running into millions of rands and left two people injured.
The damage comes during the resort’s busiest time of the year, and just after Sun International had spent millions upgrading it.
“The Soho Hotel, which is the resort’s main hotel, suffered the greatest damage to its rooms. An insurance assessment indicated that damage is greater than anticipated,” said Raul de Lima, Sun City group executive.
