The best way to soak up the other-worldly kingdom of the Sun City Resort is by basing yourself there. There are different accommodation options to suit almost every budget and staying on the Sun City property is by far the best way to try to tick off all the attractions. Hotel guests enjoy unlimited free access to Valley of Waves and there are complimentary shuttles to transport you around the resort.
Discerning travellers will quite happily check in to the five-star Palace of the Lost City. Set on the highest ground of the resort, the grand façade is visible from every corner of the resort and has wonderful views, specifically of the Valley of the Waves and the Lost City Golf Course.
The style is best described as old-world African meets safari lost kingdom influence. It’s opulent and rather over the top. Settle into a sun lounger beside the Grand Pool while discreet waiters attend to you or wander the lush gardens and hiking trails.
Perfect for the young and hip, and families, the Cabanas offer a variety of modern rooms, some with lake views, and a large and trendy swimming pool area with ample loungers and umbrellas. The Cabanas Pool Deck is the spot to enjoy a sundowner while enjoying the island-style setting.
If you’re looking for an affordable and private place to lay your head, while staying on-site with easy access to all the attractions, the Bush Bungalows are what you’re looking for.
Located beside the serene Letsatsi bush, the 14 bungalows offer comfortable African/safari-inspired accommodation in charming thatched rondavels with verandas. Set in tranquil gardens, the bungalows offer a peaceful respite from the busy surroundings. Guests have access to all of the Cabana’s amenities.
