Pilanesberg Sun City Hotel

Pilanesberg Sun City Hotel (4)

Where The fun never sets - The Sun City Resort in South Africa - entertainment for everyone! In the centre of a volcanic valley surrounded by the slopes of the Pilanesberg mountains, a wilderness wonderland rises from the dust. Shimmering in the African sun, the fantastic Sun City Resort Complex could be mistaken for a mirage. The dream began with a middle of nowhere luxury hotel in the sun. It soon evolved to include a second sumptuous hotel, the Cascades, with a tropical garden, a flamingo lake lapping the edge of the building, rushing waterfalls and a Sky Train which whisks visitors between destinations within the resort.

Tantalise your taste buds with a feast of piquant Asian-inspired cuisine in the Orchid Restaurant. Keep it “local” and tuck into some lip-smacking “lekker” South African fare in the Calabash Restaurant. Give in to the temptation of idleness and spend a relaxing afternoon soaking up the rays alongside the Hotel’s crystal-clear pool.

Sun City is ideally located within the greater Pilanesberg, approximately 90 minutes’ drive from Johannesburg and just 30 minutes’ drive from the Pilanesberg Game Reserve, a certified malaria-free wildlife area.

The Palace Hotel lies at the foot of an inactive volcano bordered by a vibrant tropical jungle against the backdrop of the breathtaking Pilanesberg mountains. Also called The Palace of the Lost City, this opulent five-star Hotel is inspired by African folklore and fable, and its status as a favoured destination for the sophisticated guest is well-deserved. Worthy of nobility, the Palace Hotel’s impressive architecture and intricate design will no doubt have you feeling quite awe-struck. From the plentiful water features and hanging gardens and flame-lit turrets, from the vivid frescoes to the beautifully mosaiced floors, from the wealth of stone carvings to the perfectly rendered bronze wildlife sculptures by artist Danie de Jager, every minute detail of the Palace of the Lost City has been contrived to evoke a fantastical wilderness. This legendary Hotel has several accommodation options, from luxury twin rooms to superior luxury pool facing rooms, from plush junior suites to a regal king suite that includes the ministrations of a private butler. Wheelchair accessible rooms are available too. The rates cover free Wi-Fi and a full English breakfast spread, served daily in the Crystal Court. The Palace of the Lost City is the ideal vacation spot from which to explore all that Sun City and the greater Pilanesberg area has to offer. Thrill to a hot air balloon safari over the Pilanesberg National Park – home to a diversity of fauna and flora, including the Big 5 – or embark on a guided game drive for an “up close and personal” wildlife encounter. Immerse yourself in the mystery of the Maze of the Lost City. Imagine yourself on an epic adventure as you gaze at the Villa del Palazzo’s trompe l’oeil of leopards peering through lush foliage. Enjoy hours of action-packed fun at the Valley of the Waves. Practice your swing with a round of the Lost City Golf Course, designed by international golfer Gary Player, followed by a sumptuous High Tea. Laze away another idyllic afternoon alongside the Olympic-sized swimming pool. Pamper yourself with a rejuvenating treatment in the Hotel’s splendid Royal Spa. However, you spend your stay at the Palace of the Lost City you can rest assured your satisfaction is foremost for the ever-vigilant staff.

Legend has it that an ancient civilisation from North Africa journeyed South to build a palace for their much-loved King. They stopped in long-extinguished volcano crater a veritable cradle of life. A place where weird and wonderful creatures, both great and small, roamed free amidst glittering streams and dreamy waterfalls. Here, they built a magnificent palace to befit the surroundings; their King was well-pleased. And so, the palace served as the spiritual centre of their vast empire until an earthquake reduced it to ruins.
