Our Quintessential Parys Venue Caters to Any Function or Special Occasion

Along the tranquil banks of the magnificent Vaal River is a little piece of history – SunWa River Lodge. As the first and original river lodge in the Vredefort Dome World Heritage Site, we have been hosting guests and stunning events for years. Our function venue in Parys is well-known in the area for its stunning suites, conference rooms, and fun-filled themed evenings. No matter the occasion you are planning, we can help you make it a success.

Work Functions and Team Building

Work functions tend to look a little boring over time – especially if they are held at the same events centre each year. Ideally situated in the Free State, our Parys venue is easily accessed from just about any province in the country, only requiring a few hours of driving. This is ideal for companies planning on spoiling their employees with a getaway retreat. Because we are situated along the Vaal River, we offer tons of exciting team building events such as river rafting, fly fishing, and River Olympics. We also have activities like paintball, quad biking, and cheetah visits available.

Themed Events

Our cheeky themed events make any function a blast to attend. Take your pick between evening event themes such as Pirates of the Vaal, Midnight in Parys, or a tailor-made theme to suit your party. We will assist you with décor, delicious meals, and incorporate any fun ideas you might have in mind.

Corporate Conferencing

Corporate meetings and networking or training sessions often feel like a drag. Our function venue in Parys, however, will ensure each attendee is relaxed and at ease. In fact, it will feel more like a holiday than anything else! We have four conferencing rooms with varying capacities and their own, unique appeal. Bar and buffet facilities also mean that attendees can look forward to scrumptious dishes and have a little fun.

Weddings and Birthday Celebrations

If you have ever witnessed a sunset gleaming off of the vast waters of the Vaal, you will know it is the ideal backdrop to a perfect wedding. Our venues are also wonderful for birthday parties, family reunions, baby showers, and even promotional business events. We go out of our way to impress and accommodate each guest through our commitment to the last detail.

The Ideal Getaway Gift

Apart from being a popular function venue, we also offer luxury accommodation for friends, families, and couples. A stay with our lodge is a fantastic way to spoil someone for an anniversary or special occasion like Mother’s Day.
