These exotic destinations are considered the most luxurious casino resorts from across the country. They cater for the everyman offering universal features such as restaurants, playgrounds, activities for the whole family or for sexy singles looking to enjoy the resort with friends. Most importantly, they are casino resorts that are better than any other in the world, including Las Vegas.

They are the kind of holiday resorts that combine adrenaline gaming with sandy, sunny and salty beaches or swimming pools playing host to the country’s rich and famous. Think trendy and stylish combined with fashion and entertainment with a night of gaming and cocktails thrown in the mix.

Those of you that cannot afford to get away and spend some time indulging on a luxurious holiday at these resorts can always spend some quality time with the best SA online casinos found at sites like Fhats Casino. Just turn up your summer playlist and enjoy playing online.

The first to make it onto our ranking is arguably one of the most luxurious casino resorts in South Africa – The Cascades Hotel Sun City. It’s located in the North West Province and is considered the Grand Old Lady of South Africa. It’s surrounded by lush tropical forests that are home to a variety of tropical birds. The hotel is surrounded by verdant gardens with tumbling streams and has a unique terraced shape with a fantastic view of the gardens and the swimming pool. The Cascades hotel is a favourite for understated luxury and elegance.

The highlight is the two casino gambling grounds. There is around-the-clock gambling entertainment for gamers of all kinds. There are 43 table games in total and a host of giveaways and prizes up for grabs. VIP gamers can head on over to the VIP section where they can enjoy games with higher bet limits. Keep in mind that foreigners have to provide their passports to the cashier in order to make a transaction.

Next to make it onto our list is none other than the Emperors Palace Hotel Casino and Convention Resort. This resort has four gaming options. In the Exclusive Privè Areas you can spend some time playing progressive jackpots, 10 American roulette tables, 6 Blackjack tables, and 2 Poker tables in three different rooms. There are also 3 baccarat tables in the Garden Court Privè. The Emperors Palace Main Casino is the real deal. There are over 800 slot machines to which you have 24 hour access. It’s like a slots paradise. There are also progressive jackpots and lots of roulette, blackjack, and poker and Hold’em poker tables with minimum bets as low as R2.50.

Those of you that want a more private area to concentrate on your gambling strategies can use the private and semi-private area. The semi-private area is a glass enclosed Velarium where you are isolated from outside noises and where you can smoke. But the real place to be are the private luxurious gaming rooms suitable for high rollers where the table games have minimum bet limits of R200 and upwards.

As third option for a luxurious holiday in a casino resort we recommend The Boardwalk Casino & Entertainment World in Summerstrand, Port Elizabeth. According to Trip Advisor it’s the number 1 thing to do in Summerstrand if you have the pocket for it. It’s a 5-star hotel accommodation only few minutes from the magnificent and award-winning Hobie Beach.

The Boardwalk Casino is open 24/7 and is the perfect destination for non-stop excitement in Port Elizabeth. Take a break from gaming and visit the sports café or browse the array of restaurants, children’s entertainment facilities and specialty shops situated around a man-made lake.

South Africa has yet again proved to be one of the best travelling destinations on the African continent. Often the success of a trip hinges on creating the perfect itinerary: mapping out how many days to spend where; designing days that balance sight-seeing and relaxation; and discovering the hot spots the city has to offer.  It helps when SA plays host to some of the most luxurious casino resorts dotted across the country, making for stylish and exotic bases from which to explore.
