Overview

Embraced by tropical forest and the warm Indian Ocean, this South African luxury lodge is a natural when it comes to relaxation.

Celebrate your victory on the golf course with a drink at Trophy Bar.
Your Signature View Suite at Fairmont Zimbali Lodge overlooks the Indian Ocean and the hotel's two-mile expanse of golden-sand beach. With a private butler on hand for drinks and dinner, it's tempting to stay on the balcony of the 950 sq. ft. suite and watch the breakers roll in. But you'll also be keen to roam the lush grounds of the hotel, part of a 1,729-acre resort.

Fairmont Zimbali Lodge constantly draws you outside - to soak in the infinity pool, go butterfly-watching, or play a round at picturesque Zimbali Golf Course, one of many nearby. The hotel complements its surroundings with classical African architecture and the wood and autumn hues of its 76 rooms and suites.

After a morning horseback ride or a Health Hydro Shower at the spa, savor a lunch of fresh fish on the pool deck of Thandi Restaurant. For more of that ocean view, try the Trophy Bar, which is open to the sweet coastal air. And don't miss a nightcap by the fireplace of the colonial-style Lounge.
