For nearly 30 years, The Palace of the Lost City at Sun City has captured hearts and imaginations. Join theplanner.guru as we understand what sets this gem aside.

Tucked away in the North West province of South Africa is the Sun City Resort – one of the country’s most iconic and popular venues.

After opening in 1979, it quickly grew in popularity as a venue for hosting getaway conferences and major events, in addition to being one of the few places South Africans could legally gamble until 1994. On the back of this success, in December 1992, The Palace of the Lost City opened its doors to the public, further cementing Sun City’s position as a leading hospitality provider that continues to leave an indelible impression on anyone who has ever been fortunate enough to have visited it.

The Palace of the Lost City is the jewel of Sun City and is as impressive as it is massive. Since opening its doors, it has hosted VIPs, celebrities and international dignitaries, and a stay at the uber-luxe The Palace remains one of the most sought-after accommodation experiences in South Africa.

All protocols observed

The implementation of stringent health and safety protocols across the entirety of the Sun City premises ensures that the venue can keep all guests and staff safe.

“We have invested a lot in the training of our staff,” notes Lwazi Mswelanto, SHE manager for Sun City, who asserts that the strength of Sun City’s protocols is underpinned by its staff.

In July, Sun City became the first hospitality venue to open a vaccination centre in South Africa. To date, the Moses Kotane Mass Vaccination Site has vaccinated 3 500 staff, guests and members of the community from the Moses Kotane District, including other resorts and hotels within the area.
