Holiday in Sun City

Sun City is one of South Africa’s hidden treasures. Situated in the North West province this is a real one for the bucket list. World-class golfing is on offer with the Gary Player Golf course not only attracting world-class athletes such as Tiger Woods but was designed by the golfing legend Gary Player himself. The Lost City Golf course is one to watch out for with the 13th hole often attracting Nile crocodiles to this desert-like course.

Sun City is famous for its casino experience where every visitor can go and try their luck 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For a different kind of adrenaline rush, Sun city has its own man-made beach called Valley of Waves. Daring slides or relaxed river rafting, you won’t realise this isn’t the real deal and for a more relaxed afternoon, you can enjoy a drink at the bar overlooking the beach. A real place for adventure with the fastest zip-slide experience in the world, 4x4 quad biking in the game park, wildlife encounters and a wide choice of restaurants and bars to choose from.

The Palace of the Lost City

This salubrious beauty is the most recent and most lavish of this vast complex’s four superlative hotels and is based on the rose-tinted memory of a lost African tribe. It redefines colonial grandeur and elegance and, just for starters, the entrance hall sets a precedent with its intricately painted ceilings, mosaic artworks and golden zebra-hide upholstered pieces.

Intricately laid out within verdant gardens, there are 335 sumptuous rooms and suites, across four luxurious wings and each residence offers panoramic vistas over water or jungle and boasts handcrafted furniture, befitting royalty. Superior suites overlook the iconic Lost City Golf Course which is surrounded by spectacular views of the mountains and bushveld.

Opulent settings, flawless service and world-renowned cuisine also add up to five-star dining at The Palace of the Lost City restaurants. The decadent décor, exclusivity and Afro-French fusion cuisine of Plume makes for the most romantic dining experience in Sun City, while the more intimate Grill Room is steak perfection and complemented by one of the most notable wine lists in the country.
