My wife turned the BIG 40 (dare I say)! We stayed at the Forest Suites for a week and it was pure bliss. We have stayed here a couple of times before but this time was very special. From the moment we walked in until our departure we were made to feel very special. Our dinners at Thandi was exceptional.... More

We recently stayed at the Forest suites. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable, large bathrooms and nicely situated in the forest. There is no view except for the trees as you are in the forest. Staff were friendly and helpful and the inclusive breakfast was good, service a bit slow at breakfast. They give you a golf cart for...

Great location, great surroundings, pity about the staff and the decor. The staff are not very friendly or welcoming. Service at breakfast is unbelievably slow. I was served raw sausages and had to send it back to be cooked. Room service was also very slow. Not sure if they under staffed or just inefficient. The TV's are ancient and don’t... More

We stayed one night at Forest Suites at Zimbali. We were not expecting anything special, but were blown away by what we got. We had a large suite, with many decorations, a large bed, and a large bathroom, with indoor and outdoor shower. There was a large deck looking out at the forest. Be aware that there are monkeys in...

The rooms were incredible, large, luxurious and lovely. The food was some of the best we have eaten in a long time. The staff were great being alert to all our needs. All in all a memorable stay. As a couple we had a great time golf spa beach and relaxing an ideal recipe for a weekend away.

My fiance and I spent two nights at the Forest Suites Hotel to celebrate his 30th Birthday. We had an amazing weekend here and loved every minute of it!! The suite was gorgeous and so luxurious with the super comfy big bed and the "OUT OF THIS WORLD BATHROOM"!! The bath is fantastic and big enough for two. And love... More

We spent two nights at this hotel, within the Zimbali resort. Extremely comfortable suite, especially travelling with children. Private, quiet and lots of space. The only problem we encounterd is the lack of communication from the hotel staff - no crisis - but more information about the facility and resort would have been welcomed. For quality, clean and luxurious accommodation... More

The Forest Suites are set in a stunning forest as part of the overall world class Zimbali Resort. The suites themselves are 5 star and beautifully appointed with lovely furniture, luxurious linen, and a bathroom that rivals anything I have seen in the best of hotels. The Zimbali resort facilities are available to guests, as is a very handy golf... More

Beautiful location, beautiful suites. BUT, the resort is a bit worn down as it is clearly visible that little or no maintenance is done. The cleaning ladies also need a rap on their lazy fingers. But overall the stay was great! Will visit again at the same special price we paid.

We had a one night stay at the Forest Suites. The location is absolutely wonderful! It is set in the lush Milkwood forests of the KZN North Coast. The service was wonderful and our every need was taken care of, from drinks on arrival to being taken to our suite on a golf cart. The suites are luxurious to say... More
