About Zimbali Lodge and country club

Zimbali Lodge hotel overlooks the incredible Indian Ocean and is surrounded by lush vegetation and beautiful indigenous gardens.

The hotel was originally sold as a 5-Star boutique hotel offering five-star luxury accommodation.
However due to the building of the Fairmont Zimbali Resort just a 5 minute Golf cart ride away in the same estate, it was decided to do away with the dinner options at the Zimbali Lodge and guests were invited to take dinner at one of the Resorts Restaurants.
With the Closure of the Thandi Restaurant for lunch and dinner ( it is still open for breakfasts ) teh lodge was also not able to offer a complete room service option.
There is a complimentary shuttle service between the Lodge and The Resort.
Zimbali Lodge still offers excellent service in all other spheres of operation.

The Hotel is decorated to complement the natural surrounding forest.
The classical architecture is accentuated by warm wood and russet autumn tones. The bathrooms are luxurious and feature Victorian baths from the turn of the century. Each room is well stocked with a selection of hot beverages, light snacks and a mini-bar. Butlers are on hand to attend to the guest's every need including room service and a very select ensemble of delicious snacks and light meals grace the room service menu.

The Zimbali Lodge has a total of 76 rooms situated in individual lodges (2 lodges of 8 rooms and 6 lodges of 10 rooms), located away from the main Lodge and set in magnificent subtropical gardens.
