The world’s first purpose built luxury super yacht hotel is a destination of choice for players, offering a Five Star Casino Experience with seven live gaming tables including American Roulette, Blackjack, Three-Card Poker, Five-Card Stud Poker and Punto Banco.
Good news for pokies fans is that there are 35 jackpot slot machines onboard the Sunborn, although the real allure is for visitors and guests to soak up the atmosphere of the serious players at the casino tables in luxurious surrounds that have been decorated to the highest international standards.
Playground for the rich and famous
This upmarket superyacht remains permanently docked at the Ocean Village Marina in Gibraltar, with stunning views of the iconic Rock of Gibraltar. Its non-cruiser status ensures that guests and visitors always have the opportunity to take to dry land to soak up some rays on the beautiful beaches of Tarifa or to head into town for a spot of shopping or sightseeing.
Gibraltar is a firm favourite with Brits eager to enjoy warm weather without having to travel too far from home, although the Sunborn’s high-class casino has become an equally important attraction for travelers. Gibraltar’s striking medieval town centre offers the perfect mix of traditional shops along with world-class designer brands where travelers can enjoy spending their casino winnings VAT-free! The casino is a 30-minute drive from five top-notch golf courses, exclusive polo clubs as well as F1 racing tracks, ensuring that it ticks all the boxes for jetset travellers.
Rooms with a (killer) view
This super luxury yacht offers a selection of exquisite rooms to impress A-list celebs and royalty alike. The Sunborn has seven floors of five star guest rooms and suites, with each of the 189 rooms on board offering spacious accommodation and a sun-drenched atmosphere, thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows that lead out to spacious private balconies or terraces. Pride of place goes to the Superyacht Penthouse Suites, which are the last word in superyacht luxury. Opulence abounds on these suites that are located on the fourth, fifth and sixth decks, with each enjoying extensive private terraces that are decorated with outdoor furniture and sun loungers. Penthouse guests also enjoy sensational panoramic sunset and marina views.
All rooms on board the Sunborn enjoy a selection of stunning views of the sea, marina and the Rock of Gibraltar itself, but when it comes to killer views you might want to consider the Superyacht Superior rooms or the Superyacht King Rooms, as these offer ringside seats to Gibraltar’s airport runway that has been dubbed one of the most dangerous in the world. With just 1777m of tarmac on hand for pilots to land and brake, the runway offers an adrenaline rush for passengers and spectators alike, with four lanes of traffic needing to brought to a standstill for every landing.
The casino that never sleeps
The casino is open 24-hours-a-day, 365 days a year, with the gaming tables operating from 8pm until 3am, but remember to take a break to allow yourself plenty of time to take in the sights and sounds of this historic city. Gibraltar offers an abundance of ways to balance the excitement of the casino, from visiting the nearby Alameda Botanical Gardens or venturing into the famous Upper Rock Nature Reserve with its impressive birdlife and resident Macaque monkeys. Or rub shoulders with locals and travelers alike as you bustle past the Italianate buildings in the town centre or explore the maze of Moorish streets that line the picturesque town of Vejer de la Frontera en route to Cadiz.
