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.
