A sun lounger is an article of a patio, a garden, a swimming pool deck, or beach-side outdoor furniture.
Well, there are three things which come to mind with respect to this coined phrase.
One, it could just be a piece of outdoor furniture used beside a swimming pool, used to lounge in the sun.
Two, it could be a touring car on some railroad trains that have glass ceilings. You get the sun and can lounge in the car whiling viewing the scenery.
Three, it could be a person who lounges in the sun to get a suntan. Perhaps, one of these fits the context in which you found the term.
They are often constructed from wood, formed plastic, or metal and outdoor fabrics. They have designed adjustable backs for people to lie down, or sit up on, (recline) while relaxing.
Somewhat like a deckchair and bed-like in nature, the rear surface can be up to allow the user to sit up and read, or it can be reclined to a flat surface to allow sleeping in the horizontal position.
