Inspired by the myth of a lost African kingdom, The Palace of the Lost City is set on the highest ground at Sun City, ensuring that its grand proportions and graceful towers are visible from across the resort.

Surrounded by lush botanical gardens crisscrossed with hiking trails, The Palace’s setting is enchanting. The main dining area overlooks the intricately decorated Grand Pool, which is circled with plush loungers to soak up the sunshine while efficient waiters attend to you. Murmuring streams, gushing waterfalls and sculpture-lined walkways lead between the hotel and its gardens, golf course and down to the Valley of Waves. This idyllic beach cove is straight out of a tropical island postcard and provides a vibrant alternative to the Grand Pool’s genteel relaxation.
