The hotel is only about 8 years old so the rooms are modern, spacious and very well appointed with microwave, fridge, tea and coffee making facilities and huge double bed. The buffet style main restaurant is not outstanding but fine. Breakfasts were good. You can eat out on the 'deck' with views out over the sea. The shuttle bus from the hotel to the golf course was not always reliable, particularly coming back to the hotel so we used our hire car instead to avoid a wait. It is a large hotel used for conferences so got quite busy at times but the hotel is big enough to absorb the numbers. Staff friendly and service generally fine.
Golf Digest has rated Zimbali as one of South Africa’s top 5 golfing experiences, primarily thanks to the amazing character and setting of its championship course. Unrivaled views of the ocean and the surrounding forests, water and wetland set the scene for Zimbali’s golf course, which was founded in 1998.
