Hospitality par excellence in South Africa
The Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve can be found in Sabi Sand Wildtuin, an untouched area crossed by the Sabie river and located within the Kruger National Park, a magical location for an exclusive vacation with fabulous treatments. Here, intense feelings, extreme relaxation and romantic moments will be experienced. An array of emotions worthy of a unique holiday where nature is the protagonist: like an off-road safari under the protection of the Rangers and “Shangaan” Trackers, who have a deep knowledge of the reserve, the wild landscape that surrounds every lodge, the breathtaking sunsets or stunning dinners under the stars. Offering excellent hospitality in luxurious and welcoming locations, Sabi Sabi’s four lodges have a unique atmosphere and an exclusive elegance. Selati Camp reflects the colonial era of the past, with suites decorated in the style of the old railways and the main hall, rooms and corridors featuring all the charm of the nineteenth century. Originally designed without electricity to preserve the atmosphere, today Selati Camp has added fans and air conditioning, whilst at night it is illuminated by the glow of oil lamps, the warm light of the fire and the spectacular radiance of the southern night sky. With twenty-five suites, the Bush Lodge is decorated in a modern African style. The Mandleve Suite is an extra luxurious suite that includes an open space, a large outside bath and shower and a private pool. The Little Bush Camp offers a breathtaking view and excellent cuisine in the midst of nature. With only six suites, it is a small and cosy lodge that faces a dry riverbed. The prestigious Earth Lodge, with its twelve exclusive, luxurious suites and the Presidential Suite Amber, is sculpted deep into the earth and is almost invisible in the landscape. Contact with nature is direct, and a holiday here is an unforgettable journey through a pristine corner of unspoilt Africa. It features impressive architecture, an essential look and uses modern fabrics, lights and spaces. The elegant Camelot International Earth Nature Spa offers a wide range of innovative, traditional or therapeutic treatments for the skin and the body, hydrotherapy and relaxing or energising massages. The Palace of the Lost City amazes for its grandeur, stylistic concept and stunning architecture. Inspired by the legend of an ancient African kingdom, it is a member of the Leading Hotels of the World and is the symbol of the Sun City Resort. It is a luxurious building, just like a Sovereign’s palace, and is surrounded by luscious vegetation. A set of ten towers decorated with African motifs, the tallest of which measures almost 70 metres, emphasizes its image as a true royal palace. Fifteen thousand ornamental pieces, built to size, decorate the front of building, which houses a great lobby. The hotel’s stunning 25 metre high dome with 16 metre diameter is hand-painted with African themes and subjects by Italian artisans. 338 rooms and suites, three restaurants, a large swimming pool and several bars are located in a complex system of rivers, ponds, patios, squares, gardens and quiet, striking corners. The décor is in African style, featuring elephants, antelopes, zebras and lions, and 85% of the interior is made of local South African materials. For the first time in South Africa, the Palace Hotel uses furniture and furnishings made completely by hand in the public areas as well as in the rooms. Each one of the 338 doors to the rooms is handcrafted and opens onto spacious and elegant areas
which are decorated in an Afro-chic style, with specially made carpets and fabrics, and furnished mostly with South African materials and decorations tailored exclusively for the hotel. An immense exotic park surrounds “the palace”, consisting of 25 hectares of verdant countryside and home to over 1,600,000 plants and 3,200 different species, including a forest of 380 baobab trees. “The Palace of the Lost City has a design which is unique in the world, mixing exotic elements, open spaces and majestic environments,” states Lidia Martinuzzi, Head of Sales & Marketing at Sun International Italy. “Everything has the grandeur of African style, and the extravagance and detail make the hotel a harmonious environment, which always amazes and leaves even the most experienced travellers breathless, thanks to its atmosphere, which I would call magnificent.”
