Romance will reign at Sun City over the Valentine’s Day weekend, with a host of special experiences for couples escaping to the resort between 14 and 16 February 2020. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day and sharing the love, guests staying at Sun City’s hotels and Sun Vacation Club over that weekend will receive complimentary tickets to Loyiso Bala’s concert at the Superbowl on 14 February 2020. This promises to be a very special treat for local music fans.
One of South Africa’s best loved artists, Bala, was classically trained and finished top of his class at the prestigious Drakensberg Boys Choir. He later became the youngest conductor of the National Youth Choir which laid the foundation for his solo career in 2002. He quickly became South Africa’s king of R&B with songs like “Girl without a Name” and “Gimme the Night”.
His first album sold triple-platinum and he has lost none of that momentum, stacking up numerous awards including South African Music Awards (SAMAs), Metro FM Awards and a South African Film and TV Award (SAFTA).
He has performed alongside the likes of Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, John Legend, Brian McKnight, Elton John, Will Smith and Akon but his most memorable performances have been performing for some of the highest dignitaries, such as Nelson Mandela, Richard Branson, Gordon Brown, Bill Clinton and Oprah Winfrey. Also performing at the concert, is local outfit, Clinton and Band.
On the following day, 15 February, there will be a sumptuous dinner in the beautiful Letsatsing Boma. Guests will receive a welcome drink on arrival and be treated to a set menu that oozes romance.
“Sun City is the place to go to fall in love again as well as have an adventure. From a romantic dinner in one of our restaurants to taking a balloon safari in the Pilanesberg National Park before sunrise and coming back down to earth for a champagne breakfast for two, the resort really offers something for everyone.
“Enjoy a quiet interlude of indulgent pampering together at the Gary Player Health Spa to rejuvenate both body and spirit, leaving feeling refreshed and revived,” says Thapelo Modise, Marketing Manager at Sun City.
