Dear timeshare owner,
As you will be aware, President Cyril Ramaphosa, in his address to the nation on Monday the 23rd March, announced wide-ranging measures to be implemented to combat the threat of the COVID-19 virus. The immediate impact of these measures is that we are forced to close all Southern Sun Resorts from midnight on Thursday the 26th March until the 17th April. The weeks affected by the closure are weeks 13, 14 and 15.
During this closure, all affected weeks will automatically be banked with SunSwop, and you will receive 100% of the points value of the week. This banking will enable you to do an exchange either back into your home resort or into another resort within the Southern Sun portfolio of resorts, or into other RCI resorts either local or internationally. There is no need for you to contact us to get your week banked, as we will do this for you. This includes any owners who have placed their unit into the Resort Rental Pool. Kindly ensure that all your private arrangements guests have been informed of the closure.
All owners affected by this closure will receive a credit to their levy account to the value of R509 (applicable for an exchange back into another Southern Sun Resort). It is important to note that the exchange fee credited to your account (R509) will not cover the entire cost of your exchange should you decide to do the exchange beyond 2020 or into a resort which is not a Southern Sun Resort. In these instances, you will be required to pay the difference.
Please contact the SunSwop team for assistance with your exchange requests:
