Gin picnics at Wild Coast Sun

Gin picnics at Wild Coast Sun

A new offering to Wild Coast Sun, guests can now enjoy their very own gin and tonic picnic.

The weekly gin and tonic Saturdays continue but for guests staying at the hotel midweek or those that want their own private experience, why not indulge in a unique picnic basket made just for you?

Place your request with banqueting at least 24-hours ahead of time and you can pick up your basket and head down to the beach for a romantic sunset, Wild Waves Water Park, or relax on the lush lawns of Sun International’s only beachfront resort.

Nothing says relaxation more than the tropical feel of the South Coast, and when in the tropics, a delightful picnic basket made up of a wide range of treats, is a must.

Inside the basket, guests can tuck into wrapped baguettes (chicken or vegetable), Greek pasta salad and chicken strips, accompanied with snacky-bites in the way of a mini cheese and crackers, Simba crisps, peanuts and raisins, and whole fruit. For the sweet tooth, one will also find a mini dessert of the day and homemade biscuits.

To drink, guests can sip away on a gin and tonic mix, along with other thirst quenchers with still water and Tru-Fruit juices, also included.

Cost: R250 per basket
Venue: Wild Coast Sun resort, Main Bizana Road Bizana, Port Edward, 4295
