The Palace of the Lost City is the resurrected “royal residence” of a lost African civilization. The Palace of the Lost City is an extraordinary fantasy stemming from a North African legend. The legend tells us that a tribe from an ancient civilization of Africa brought their proud traditions of mighty architecture, luxurious hospitality and love of nature to an ancient volcanic crater that they called the Valley of the Sun in South Africa. Here they built a palace which was destroyed by an earthquake. Hence the name The Palace of the Lost City. Today, the legend has come to life again and The Palace has been rebuilt in the magnificent surrounds of South Africa. The Palace of the Lost City in South Africa is undoubtedly one of the world's most unique and imaginatively decorated hotels. Within The Palace of the Lost City complex, a fairytale palace awaits you, built with passion and dedication. The interior of The Palace features beautiful mosaics and frescoes as well as hand-painted ceilings, all paying tribute to the art and nature of South Africa. At the Palace of the Lost City there are 338 rooms and four suites: The King, Royal, Africa and Desert suites.
