If one has the good fortune to make a stopover in Sun City, then for sheer over the top indulgence you cannot do any better than organise a stay at the Palace in The Lost City. There is nothing subtle about the hotel but if you are seeking a level of service combined with quality in Accomodation , food and... More

We had the absoloute pleasure of spending two nights at The Palace of the Lost City at the end of April . The Hotel is opulent with beautifully maintained gardens and pool areas . Rooms are large and possibly bathrooms seem a little dated but this may be the look the creators went for. Service is outstanding , from the... More

Maybe we were lucky, but we got upgraded for no reason we knew, and our rooms were spectacular. This place is gorgeous. We had only a brief stay but there is tons to do on the resort and nearby. The safari in the Pilanesberg Nat'l Park was awesome. Golf with baboons, interesting. The service was more than wonderful. I'd return... More

what a place - right from the get go when you walk in to the hotel you get a Kings Welcome. The architecture, the location, the restaurants, the food, the swimming pool, the amenities, everything is King size - and Royal. The breakfast spread is one of the best that we have had so far. All the staff treat you... More

I was completely gob smacked by your personal touch, the professionalism of all your staff and the quality of service including at porter level. The breakfast at The Palace is world class. Sabrina – your personal gesture to source me the correct cable for my hard drive from your house late at night was beyond expectations. Nico – your warmth... More

From the moment you step out of your car in the driveway you are made to feel welcome and special by friendly and capable staff. The staff were all most helpful and professional. They went about their jobs with pride and joy. The service and facilities at the resort were all of the highest standard. There is a feeling of... More

The Palace is the most awesome hotel to visit and we have been back time and again, whenever we are in South Africa. It has all one can ask for. From being pampered to going quad biking, game drives or elephant rides. Whatever floats your boat and it is there. As ex South Africans living in Australia and having travelled... More

I was there for a few days with my daughter and had a great time. It is still an expensive hotel, but the service is greatly improved with friendly attentive staff and lots to do. It comes highly recommended. My only niggle would be that the water in the taps (and tea) still tastes of the dam. Otherwise it was... More
