A legendary destination designed by dreamers for luxury-seekers. Since inception in 1992, The Palace of the Lost City has enthralled visitors from all over the globe. Its unique setting in South Africa, on an extinct volcanic site among the Pilanesberg mountains, is matched by the inspired architecture and passionate attention to detail for which The Palace of the Lost City is renowned.
This luxury five-star hotel in Sun City has integrated the natural beauty of its surroundings into its design, taking architectural and interior themes from the legend of a lost African tribe to capture the essence of The Palace. Think richly-woven colours, faux elephant tusks, sculptured bronze and crystal, and jungle cascades. The magnificence of the wild landscape is depicted through lions, kudus, birds and beasts of all kinds; these are immortalised in statues, stone carvings, mosaic illustrations, vaulted ceilings, dazzling flame-topped towers and in artist Danie de Jager's bronze wildlife sculptures. With fresco ceilings above and ancient tiles below, you are left to stand in awe at the sheer scale and grandeur of the masterpiece that is The Palace of the Lost City.
Accommodation fit for royalty, The Palace of the Lost City is synonymous with five-star luxury. Every detail has been carefully considered to ensconce guests in opulent comfort, from the cool mosaic tiles of the lobby and the subtle fusion of botanic aromas to the hotel's regally appointed high teas. Each exquisite suite with its handcrafted furniture repeats the magic of this remarkable place and offers royal hospitality with breathtaking views over water or jungle.
As part of Sun International's exclusive SunLux Collection, The Palace of the Lost City invites you to escape into the thrill of your journey. Bordering the malaria-free Pilanesberg National Park, discover a world of wildlife on your doorstep when you stay at The Palace. Embark on a hot-air balloon safari or guided game drive and discover the 'Super Seven', a term coined to include cheetah and wild dogs among the famous Big Five, all of which can be found here in abundance.
