The Kingdom Resort is one truly reserved for royalty. A unique premier stay nestled among the South African plains, it is perfectly positioned by Sun City and only 2 km from the Pilanesberg National Park, a beautiful view in the distance.

Here at The Kingdom Resort, you’re just a stone’s throw away from some of the most spectacular landscapes in all of South Africa. Another equally important draw for guests is that Sun City – a sweeping complex complete with a casino, golf course, live shows, restaurants, waterpark, and a myriad of other activities – is nearby. Whenever you want to take in a show or play a round of putt putt, take advantage of the complimentary shuttle service and enjoy all that the area has to offer. Take it wherever you want.

A Choice of Accommodations Available

Second, there is also a choice of accommodation options available at The Kingdom Resort. From hotel-style suites to four-bedroom luxury villas. Did we mention you can also purchase one? A holiday home could be yours to own if you really want it. Imagine being able to come and stay at the resort every year, without having to worry about availability. You can choose from a number of chalets and villas available on either a sectional title or vacation ownership basis.

Let’s Talk Accommodations

To blend with the aesthetic of its natural landscape, The Kingdom Resort was designed to resemble a collection of small villages. Moreover, each village is grouped together to resemble a horseshoe named Kraal and consists of a number of chalets and villas that look out upon the lovely Bushveld Terrain. Let’s take a look at the suites, chalets, and villas to see what they have to offer.

1. Chalets

First, let's take a look at the chalets. In like manner to the topography of the region, natural materials and earthy tones come together at the chalets. The result is an effortless blend of the beauty of their natural surroundings.

The Kingdom Resort values authenticity in design and aesthetic, evidenced by the building’s well-thought-out style. Choose from two and three bedroom self-catering, luxury chalets all fully furnished, boasting an amazing kitchen and entertainment area. This accommodation style is perfect for families looking for a serene place to stay and catch up on some R&R.

2. Villas

Second, let's take a look at the villas. These luxurious villas feature stunning interiors furnished with solid wood tables, granite top kitchens, comfortable and stylish bedrooms, air conditioning and DStv. For the most part though, you'll be outside exploring. Who needs a TV here? Furthermore, choose from two, three, and four-suite self-catering, upmarket villas with their own private splash pool and fire pit. You bring the firewood and we’ll bring the marshmallows.

3. King Suites

Single and double options are complete with DStv, air conditioning, tea and coffee making facilities, and a private patio. What’s better than drinking a cup of hot coffee while watching the sunrise over the plains?

4. Yours to Own

Fourth, The Kingdom Resort has three exciting purchase options available. You can choose from a Timeshare or Sectional style ownership. Let’s take a look at both of the options and see what they have to offer.


Vacation ownership is just at your fingertips. The Kingdom Resort offers the following offers to timeshare owners:

  • checkSuperior self-catering resort accommodation with use of free on-site facilities
  • check1 or weeks of exclusive usage time of a 2 or 3 bedroom chalet every year
  • checkHoliday flexibility
  • checkAlternative high-quality exchange resorts at no cost
  • checkOver 4,000 resorts worldwide to choose from for a nominal exchange fee
  • checkA managed rental pool

Exchange Your Usage Time for Holidays Worldwide or for Rental Income

In the event that you find yourself unable to use your week yourself during the year, you have the options of exchanging it for a more convenient time at The Kingdom Resort (whenever you want it).

When you want, you can also swap out for an accommodation at another resort within South Africa and worldwide too. Because of this flexiblity, you also have the option of exchanging your unwanted usage time in order to participate in the Beekman Managed Portfolio Rental Pool. Please visit The Kingdom Resort website for additional details.

Purchase – Sectional Title

In the event that you are pursuing a purchasing option, another way to purchase a vacation chalet or villa at The Kingdom Resort is through a sectional title. They offer the following options to Sectional Title owners:

  • checkLuxurious resort accommodation with free use of on-site facilities
  • checkSelf-contained Presidential Suites; individual or two, three, four, and five-suite villas
  • checkA managed rental pool
  • check4,000 resorts worldwide to choose from for a nominal exchange fee
  • checkAlternative high-quality exchange resorts at no cost
  • check14 weeks exclusive usage time every year

Guaranteed Holidays Every Year

In the event you decide to indulge and get a stunning Presidential Suite or even an entire villa at The Kingdom Resort, you will enjoy 14 weeks in paradise at this South African oasis. Your family – or maybe just you and your significant other – are guaranteed a place to stay every year even in the preferred weeks and seasons. As we mentioned before, you can also use these weeks for exchange with the other BMP resorts, exchange into local and international resorts, or place additional weeks in the rental pool. We can’t think of a better deal.

A Potential Source of Rental Income

Here’s a pro tip. If you do decide to purchase a chalet or villa, it’s also great for the purpose of rental income. Another benefit of the Investor Club is that 37 weeks of your purchased rental are automatically placed into the resort’s rental pool on your behalf. What does this mean for you? For one thing, the income from owner’s rentals is equally shared amongst participating villa owners.

It's important to realize that with the rising tourism boom in South Africa, this could be a great and fun way to make a little extra monthly cash. Plus, you’d have a vacation home awaiting you right by one of Africa’s most beautiful national parks. By all means, we want in.

Set in the crater of an extinct volcano, the stunning Pilanesberg region of South Africa’s North West province is nothing short of a feast for the eyes. It’s no wonder that this setting was chosen as the site of the Pilanesberg National Park, the 4th largest in South Africa. Here, you will find syenite koppies, ravines covered in thick forests, rolling grasslands, and wide sweeping plains – all of this is home to The Kingdom Resort.

Let’s Talk Dining

While The Kingdom Resort offers the lovely Acacia Terrace Cafe on-site, there are also plenty of other options to choose from nearby. Some local favorites include the Mohican Spur Steak Ranch, Casa Bella Sun City, The Brew Monkey, and Tusk Bar & Lounge.

Mohican Spur Steak Ranch

This US-style diner chain serves up a family-friendly vibe, alongside steaks, burgers, ribs, and wings, and the like. Bring the kids along for some of the best tasting food and dessert from their famous Spur menu.

Casa Bella Sun City

Indulge yourself in a fresh, authentic, and carefully-crafted Italian cuisine. Here at Casa Bella, there’s a pretty catchy motto. Eat first and then do everything else. Their mouth-watering pizzas are hand-pressed to every order, maintaining a rare authenticity through imported Italian ‘OO’ flour and only the freshest ingredients. For this reason, it's one of the most beloved restaurants in the area. Each pizza is topped lavishly with melted, creamy mozzarella, and then finessed in their signature wood-fired oven. This lovely little spot will instantly transport your taste buds right to the heart of Naples. Buon Appetito!

The Brew Monkey

In a word, the drinks here are amazing. Ordinarily you wouldn't expect a regular looking shop to have the best stuff on the block. But this lovely little coffee house and deli serve up some of the best cappuccinos and cafe breves you’ll find for miles around. Want to know our personal favorite? The Ghirardelli hot cocoa poured up with lots of frothy goodness. Obviously, we're hooked.

Tusk Bar & Lounge – Sun International

Embark on a culinary adventure at this safari-themed cocktail bar and lounge. The Tusk Bar & Lounge at The Palace transports its visitors back in time and style, to an era when grand explorations captured the imagination. After all, who doesn't want the excuse to dress all fancy and wear a big floppy hat?

Let’s Talk Amenities and Activities

The Kingdom Resort takes full advantage of the lovely sunny Pilanesberg climate. In order to keep everyone happy and entertained, guests are provided with a selection of complimentary activities. By all means, dive right in. Who's up for a hot air balloon ride, four wheeling, rock climbing, and pool lounging? Us. Definitely us.
