Sun City: A Night at the Palace

I couldn’t contain my excitement when I was invited to spend A Night at the Palace. The Palace is a 5 star hotel, located in Sun City. Here’s a look at my adventure and what you can expect while visiting.

Arriving at the Palace, we were greeted and personally shown to reception for check-in, while our car was taken care of by the valet. The luxurious room was spacious, with a look and feel that is authentic to the Sun City resort. I had the Nespresso machine make me a cup of coffee and jumped onto the bed.

We had lunch at Plume, a contemporary restaurant at the Palace where we enjoyed the tuna tarter starter and goats cheese risotto as the main. Although I am not a fan of tuna, I really enjoyed this dish.

After lunch, a treatment at the Gatsby spa awaited us, where I opted for a hand and foot massage. The relaxing hour showcased their award-winning standards. fullsizeoutput_29ac

We headed back to our room to dress for drinks at the Tusk Bar. Sipping champagne on the plush couches made for a great place to decompress before dinner.

Dinner was served at The Grill Room, which offers guests a luxurious take on a hearty dining experience that is matched by great service.

Robes and nougat were set on the bed when we returned to the room. A hot shower and movie brought the day to a very comfy close.

To get there we passed through Time’s Square (which is where we’d also return to for a late lunch at Nando’s). We spent most of the day lazing in the sun at the adult-only (and clothing optional) pool in a private gazebo.

I enjoyed every moment of my stay at Sun City and night at the Palace. It’s the perfect city escape and I can’t wait to return.
