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 cart to get around the vast estate. There are several infinity pools around the resort, which is cool - the beach is a stunning 5-7km stretch of beauty but not safe for swimming due to the steep shelf down to the water.
Breakfast was included in the price of our stay and was a modest 3 star offering - nothing special unfortunately as this was out of keeping with the rest of the place. Our suite didnt have a kitchenette which would have been nice as an alternative to the hotel breakfasts on some mornings.
Everywhere we went staff was friendly, helpful and polite. However, overall information on the Zimbali resort and how to get around and what to see in Ballito (the nearby town) was scant - even on Trip Advisor. Once we figured things out though there is something for everyone and plenty of great offerings for all tastes.
This is a marvellous place if you don't want the typical seaside apartment so typical of the KZN North Coast.
