This is not a palace but a spectacular luxury hotel. It is located in the Mines Resort City, a 35 min drive from the airport and 20 min from the city centre, near the National Sports Complex and the Selangor Turf Club.

This Mines Resort City features several hotels and a golf course, all located at the shores of a big lake.

Although the Palace of the Golden Horses is a five star hotel by booking today it would cost only NZ$ 160 today (80 Euro), a lake-view room NZ$ 183. But do not celebrate too early if you dream of getting the best room for little money. The Golden Suite comes to NZ$ 6243, yes, no typing error: six thousand two hundred fourty three. But breakfast is included LOL

There is a sister-hotel, named Palace Beach Resort & Spa (formerly: Mines Beach?), on the other side of the lake ? four stars only ? which can be reached by water taxi. It has a man-made beach. Adjacent to the hotel is the Mines Resort & Golf Club.

The strange name ? Mines ? derivates from the area?s past. It covers a space that was once considered the world?s largest open-cast tin mine.
