Fairmont Zimbali Resort, 5* Ballito
An unspoiled shoreline, rolling hills and lush flora have come to define the Zimbali Coastal Resort region. Set along South Africa’s sublime east coast, nestled between a forest reserve and a shimmering sea, our Durban resort’s exquisite natural beauty is dotted with pockets of urban flair and enhanced by the rich Zulu heritage of the KwaZulu-Natal province.
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 from our Zimbali resort on the Durban coast. And it’s yours to enjoy—in comfort and with world-renowned service—at Fairmont Zimbali Resort, an exclusive Durban hotel on the South African coast – and an elegant gateway to nature.
9 contemporary dining and entertainment venues offer a dazzling range of appetizing options to tantalise your taste buds. With a selection of light to full-course meals, local delicacies and ethnic dishes, you are assured of a memorable experience. Whether you are looking for a formal dinner or casual pizza next to the pool, Fairmont Zimbali Resort is the venue for your occasion.
