THE PALACE OF THE LOST CITY - SUN CITY RESORT
This magnificent palace, so legend tells, was built for a king by an ancient civilization from the north of Africa, who made this idyllic valley their home until it was destroyed by an earthquake. Now restored to its former glory, this unique establishment specializes in extending a royal welcome to the discerning guests who come to call. The Palace offers opulent accommodation, fabulous architecture & decor details, the finest cuisine and incomparable sporting and leisure facilities.
The Palace wants for nothing - it has no equal. Faux elephant tusks, sculptured bronze and crystal, richly woven colors of Africa, mystery-scented air and jungle cascade and fuse into an atmosphere fit for a king. With frescoed ceilings above and ancient tiles below, you are left to stand in awe at the sheer scale of this masterpiece. The craftsmen who fashioned this breathtaking Palace used equal quantities of art and nature in soaring columns and intricate mosaic, capturing wild elegance and savage beauty in bronze and stone, culminating in a life-size sculpture of the mighty elephant Shawu, who takes pride of place in the Shawu Court.
