We had a memorable stay with great accommodation. The resort does NOT have a swimming beach and this negative aspect had us doing more traveling then we wanted to. Ideal place for golfers n nature lovers not for families wanting beach fun.

If you are looking for a weekend away from it all, this is it. Located on lovely secluded part of the beach and with a great swimming pool. Excellent for conferences and/or romantic get-aways. The food is also excellent.

had a great 3 nights relaxing break, huge estate with plenty of space to explore for running and just walking. The facilities were great, meals were fantastic. The staff could not be more helpful. Excellent value, if this had been in the UK it would have cost a fortune. We hope to go back in the future and take some... More

What a fantastic self catering experience! The three bedroom house was immaculate, each room with a beautiful en-suite bathroom. We had lovely meals outside on the balcony with the sound of the sea and waves. The interior design is stunning and the finishes and linen are luxurious. Fully equipped kitchen with everything you need for a family meal. Even a... More

Luxurious, Self-catering holiday accommodation located right on the beach. Amazing exclusive location, with pristine golf course and 6-star hotel on the same estate. 5minutes from excellent swimming beaches, and shops. All-round great stay.

Zimbali beach estate offers top notch accommodation. And subject to overgrown trees, views of the Indian Ocean. It's best to head to nearby Ballito for food and drink as the two Fairmont establishments on the Zimbali Estate are somewhat hubristic although the staff are very nice. Best bets are the Galley and the El Pescador just outside the gates and... More
