The Palace of the Lost City is as opulent and lavish as its name suggests, with dramatic vistas overlooking the Lost City Golf Course and magnificent Valley of Waves. Surrounded by lush botanical gardens crisscrossed with hiking trails, The Palace’s setting is enchanting. Murmuring streams, gushing waterfalls and sculpture-lined walkways lead between the hotel and its gardens, golf course and down to the Valley of Waves. This idyllic beach cove is straight out of a tropical island postcard and provides a vibrant alternative to the Grand Pool’s genteel relaxation.
