We have stayed at several Leading Hotels of the World before but this one was so unique, like a dream. The architecture is perfect like a castle and the swimming pool and dining venues are magnificent. We got so spoilt and had such an unforgettable stay here.

We are planning to come back for our wedding anniversary.

The Palace The Lost City is at the top of the range of hotels on offer at the Sun City Resort.

This is a fantastic hotel, uniquely designed, it is no doubt one hotel that I will definately visit again and whoever stays at this hotel will definatelly be blown away. The decor is one of a kind and very beautiful.

Breakfast at The Palace of The Lost City is world class with a spread that is truly out of this world, with options such as Oyster & Champagne, Peking Duck and all the usuals. Wow this is one stay that I will never forget.
