About Fairmont Zimbali Resort
Fairmont Zimbali Resort is the newer of the 2 Fairmont hotels inside the exclusive Zimbali Coastal Estate.
The estate is a 30 minute drive North of Durban just on the outskirts of the beachside holiday town of Ballito and a 15 minute drive from King Shaka International Airport.
The Zimbali Estate is set amongst rolling hills and lush flora and these have come to define the Zimbali Coastal Resort region. South Africa’s sublime east coast is home to the Resort which is nestled amongst a forest reserve with the shimmering sea at it's front
The resort’s exquisite natural beauty is dotted with pockets of urban flair and enhanced by the rich Zulu heritage of the KwaZulu-Natal province.
The Zimbali Resort Hotel has everything you would expect of a modern 5 star Resort facility including a choice of gourmet restaurants, plenty of sports activities, a kids club in the holidays, an exclusive Spa facility, a top rated Golf Course as well as a choice of luxury accommodation of course.
The Resort Hotel features 154 guest rooms and suites, including a Penthouse and Presidential suite and if you prefer a luxury Self catering Option with all the convenience of Hotel facilities then there are 18 Fairmont Heritage Place villas as well.
Part cultural wonderland, the region boasts thousand-year-old battlefields and renowned eco-parks; part natural playground, it offers unique game-viewing and safari opportunities.
