Outlook for Indian market

Allaman further shares, “The Indian market has always been important for Sun International over the years, and we continue to maintain this good relationship. We want to say that we are grateful to this market for the continued support we have received and that is why I took the time to visit the various regions within India to showcase what Sun International has to offer now and to ensure that we bring in that business and hold that relationship steady.”

Eye on Indian weddings

Elaborating further on the India visit, she adds, “My mandate right now is to ensure that we bring in South Africa as a destination for weddings. We are completely equipped to handle an Indian wedding in Sun City.” She further adds, “For Indian travellers, gastronomy is of the utmost importance, so we ensure that we do have Indian executive chefs at our properties, making sure that we are including at least a minimum of two or three authentic Indian dishes within our breakfast offerings. It is important for us to offer Jain kitchen access because we want to ensure that when our Indian guests come through, they are comfortable.”
