The Palace of the Lost City
The Palace of the Lost City is part of The Leading Hotels of the World, a brand which is internationally recognized as the definitive mark of excellence in hospitality.
The Palace lavishes its guests with 5* service, and is luxurious in every detail. S the name suggests, you can expect nothing less than being treated like royalty during your stay here.
Drink in the view over the Sun City resort while sipping a cocktail by the Palace Pool, or early evening, relax in the gracious Tusk Bar, where hand-carved teak tusks soar above this beautifully designed lounge to provide a casual, relaxed atmosphere for drinks, with live piano music in the evenings.
Then succumb to the culinary dining splendour of the Crystal Court or Villa del Palazzo, where you can sample signature dishes.
The Palace has 335 rooms and suites in total. The luxury rooms all have marble topped vanities in the en-suite bathroom, and some have a fold out sleeper couch, making these ideal for families with young children.
The suites are breathtakingly opulent. From the distinctive grandeur of the African Suite with its private outdoor jacuzzi and baby grand piano, to the unforgettable King Suite, resplendent in its maple panelling, delicately frescoed ceilings and stunning panoramas over the Lost City, or the Junior, Superior and Royal Suites, a stay in any of these will be a holiday highlight in its own right.
Breakfast is included.
Children of any age are welcome. Rates available on request.
