Sun City

Pilanesberg

Holiday Resort

3 to 5 Stars

South Africa

History was made in 1979 when Sun City was opened in the North West to become the best holiday resort in South Africa, and for good reason.

Home to the Valley of Waves and sprawled along the border of the Pilanesberg National Park, Sun City Resort enjoys the fine distinction of being the only surf-and-safari destination within a two-hour drive of landlocked Johannesburg. Whether you’re looking for a romantic stay with your partner, a fun weekend getaway with friends or a North West holiday with the whole family, Sun City Resort has it all.

With hundreds of Sun City activities on offer, there are so many things to do in Sun City. From family fun to adrenaline-fueled adventures, Sun City has something for everyone to enjoy.

No other resort in South Africa has as wide a variety of accommodation options as Sun City. If you’re looking for unsurpassed 5-star luxury, something to suit the whole family, or your own comfortable unit away from the crowds – we’ve got everything you need. Each hotel has its own unique style, character and attractions.

PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

The Palace forms part of Sun International’s Sunlux Collection, this sophisticated 5-star hotel has redefined African luxury and elegance. The entrance hall of The Palace sets the precedent, with its intricately painted ceilings, mosaic artworks and golden zebra-hide upholstered furniture. Set within verdant gardens, each luxurious room in the hotel boasts handcrafted furniture, befitting royalty.

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.

The newly refurbished Cabanas hotel is situated at the Sun City Waterworld Lake, offering guests a contemporary twist and great ‘base’ to explore the resort. As the sun sets over the open spaces and rolling lawns the nights begin at the Cabanas Pool Deck, with chic cocktails and a vibrant island setting.

Named for the waterfalls and calming pools that trickle throughout the property, the 5-star Cascades hotel is an oasis of calm in the midst of the Sun City Resort and in close proximity to all the activities Sun City has to offer.

Nestled in the centre of the lodge is an intimate and quiet plunge pool with umbrellas, pool towels and a barman on standby at all times. Take a refreshing dip after a morning game drive or a peaceful nap in the afternoon. Drinks are on call so make yourself at home in the lazy sanctuary of the pool area. (No children under 12 years)
