The Palace of the Lost City at Sun City is an extraordinary establishment and the centrepiece of a fantastic Disneyesque African resort park. Picture dome-turrets in an African fairytale castle in the vein of California’s Hearst Castle and an Indiana Jones movie set with an element of King Solomon’s Mines thrown in for good measure.
 

The Palace of the Lost City revolves around a mythic lost civilisation and royal residence rebuilt after an earthquake. The scale of the building is monumental and it even took a helicopter to place the domes on the spires. The man-made Sun City embraces jungles, cliff-tumbling gardens and a rain forest, waterfalls and outdoor entertainments. The painstakingly wrought interiors depict a southern African wildlife tableaux and cultural vignettes rendered in intricate mosaic, frescoes and hand-painted ceilings. It is nothing short of amazing.

 

The architecture and decoration ranges from an avenue of life-size sculpted bronze elephants to faux tusks and stucco friezes atop vaulted gates. Room interior decor ranges from restrained to animal print upholstery and gold-inlay rococo furniture.

 
 

Accommodation comprises 338 rooms and four individually-appointed opulent suites named King, Royal, African and Desert. The Place of the Lost City hotel is set apart from the wider resort and accessible to guests of the hotel only, as it is a tourist attraction in its own right.


All air-conditioned en-suite rooms have an entrance foyer, lounge and reception area and ‘butler station.’ The singular King Suite embodies ultra-luxury and breathtaking vistas over the palatial grounds, with hand-modelled walls, maple panelling, frescoed ceilings and customised artefacts. All four exceptional suites have both a sauna and jacuzzi. The huge Grand Pool is adorned with sculptures, while the Pool Cocktail Bar serves within a shady pavilion, for it gets good and hot in this northern part of South Africa. The Tusk Bar serves cocktails, while fine dining is provided at the Crystal Court or Villa del Palazzo eateries.

A special feature of Sun City is the Valley of the Waves aquatic park. The leisure pool areas include man-made river courses and offer parasailing and water-skiing, tube riding and even surfing a perfect man-made wave. There are some thrilling water chute rides too, including the torrential Temple of Courage! A little tamer are forest trails and a huge entertainment complex catering to a broad spectrum of gaming and nightclubbing Las Vegas-style. There is of course a Health Spa offering more relaxing diversions. Additionally, there are two world-class golf courses: the Gary Player Country Club and Lost City. With a year-round warm climate, Sun City is perfect at any time of the year.

Situated 187 miles from Johannesburg in the bushveld of South Africa’s north-west province, surrounded by the mountains of the Pilanesberg, Sun City Resort is a popular accommodation venue for visiting Pilanesberg National Game Park. Here you’ll find the Big Five; lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino, while the extended resort provides habitats for free-ranging vervet monkeys and chacma baboons. Open 4 by 4 vehicle game drives are available as is hot air ballooning.

The Palace of the Lost City hotel is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World group. The hotel, with a reputation for hedonism, was chosen by the England Soccer team’s families (WAGs!) as their base during the 2010 World Cup.
