Timeshare is an investment. But unlike most investments, the Southern Sun Timeshare concept is really quite simple and it provides more benefits than you may have imagined. Purchasing Southern Sun Timeshare means that you are buying a holiday for the future, at today’s prices. Your initial investment is a once-off purchase cost, and its growth will be determined by the level of demand of the week and unit at the time that you sell it.
All apartments are a Fri-Fri Check-In/Out day
Chalets are either a Fri-Fri or Sat-Sat Check-In/Out day
You may purchase as many weeks as you want, depending on availability.
Booking for two or more consecutive weeks may not ensure you the use of the same unit throughout your stay.
All apartments within the Resort are included for leisure investment purposes, subject to resale availability.
Your Southern Sun Timeshare purchase is for life and may even be bequeathed to your heirs.

Timeshare is shared holiday ownership with flexibility! Timeshare enables you to buy a share in a Share Block Company that leases or owns a Resort property. This ownership gives you the right to occupy a specific room or chalet for one week each year. You specify the time of year and you also have full access to all the amenities and service facilities offered at the Resort you have chosen and own. Essentially, timeshare enables you to secure your future holidays at excellent value.
SunSwop is an exclusive, private exchange facility developed by Southern Sun Resorts. All Southern Sun Resort owners gain automatic membership to SunSwop and are in the best position to take advantage of our preferential exchange opportunities. As a SunSwop member, you are entitled to request exchanges either in South Africa or Overseas, from a choice of over 2,600 affiliated Resorts worldwide! Remember, SunSwop is the name that opens the door to any holiday you care to choose. SunSwop has affiliated with Interval International.
Do I have to spend my holiday in the same place and at the same time every year?
If you are unable to use your week, you may accrue deposited weeks for a maximum period of two years, enabling you to enjoy a future extended holiday. For ultimate flexibility, you may even borrow time from the year ahead. If you choose to accrue and/or borrow time, call SunSwop to make the necessary arrangements on your behalf. Another option is to place your week in the Resort Rental Pool. The Resort itself controls the Rental Pool and helps you to rent out your period at the current hotel rates to casual guests. If you choose this option, you should notify the Southern Sun Resorts Central Administration Office in Umhlanga, in writing, at least 90 days before the start of the week you own. Kindly note that the Resort does charge a nominal administration fee for this service. You may also give your week to a friend or rent it out privately. In this case, kindly notify the Southern Sun Resorts Central Administration Office in writing with the name, address and telephone number of the people to whom you have given or rented your accommodation. Alternatively this can be done on line. The people with whom you have made this arrangement are also required to present a Guest Certificate from yourself upon arrival at the Resort.
What guarantee do I have that my Timeshare ownership is secure?
Your Share Block Company is run by a Board of Directors elected by the shareholders. Directors are bound by the Companies Act and Share Blocks Control Act to report to the shareholders every year. In addition the company is audited annually by one of the “Big 4” auditing firms and managed by the Tsogo Sun Group, who have many years of experience as pioneers of the South African Timeshare Industry.
Levies are raised to cover the operating costs of your Resort and to maintain and protect the assets of shareholders. We spend them on exactly the same day-to-day maintenance and improvement projects that you would undertake to protect the value of your own home. We also try to build up a replacement reserve (of cash), to ensure that we not only maintain the standards of quality, luxury, amenities and service but to improve them in the long run. Directors approve the levies on an annual basis for each Share Block Company. Shareholders receive a copy of the Annual Financial Statements of the Company each year, which reflects the financial situation of the Company. You must pay your levy once a year for each unit you own, regardless of whether you have deposited your unit with SunSwop for accrual or exchange, placed it in the Resort Rental Pool or entered into a Private Arrangement. Your levy statement will be mailed to you five months before the beginning of the period you own and the amount should be paid three months before occupation.
