Zimbali Resort is a great place to stay. Set 43km from Durban in a country setting next to the ocean, it is quiet and serene. Has a golf course, gym, spa. Swimming pool, different restaurants etc. Food great, houses exceptional. Service at the restaurants can be improved though. Recommend for relaxation and play.

Visited this restaurant for the first time and it will probably be my last due the prices. Everything including the starters are above 100rand with the drink being around 80 rand for a smallish drink. Food was good as I had the burrito and poppers are tasty. Veg options are also great. Service was attentive due to it being quiet and mid month. Lovely views of the pool area and beach.

This is a very peaceful and exclusive resort. Here you can feel the undisturbed tranquility of nature at its best. With lots of activities for your enjoyment you'll never have a dull moment. The resort is perfect for both young and old. One can just relax by the swimming pool while sipping cocktails, take a walk through the nature trails within the resort or get sweaty at the gym while the kids are busy at the kids club. There's also a number of restaurants with a variety of food and beverages.

Nice resort. They have a very good property and is maintained extremely well. The location gives a very picturesque view and makes it a interesting place to be in. The Restaurants are good and serve variety of food. Pool is good as well. Approach to the beach is not great and can be improved. While you stay there do take a early morning walk.

"Birthday weekend stay "

We had a lovely Stay at Zimbali, the place is absolutely stunning. It was a well worth getaway for my Birthday Celebration. The ambiance of the place is to die for and the entertainment and staff of the place are welcoming and helpful. We will definitely be making this a yearly visit. See you next year Zimbali.
