Trophy Bar

Go on, grab yourself a chilled pick-me-up at the Trophy Bar, be it a G&T, a colourful cocktail or something special from the extensive wine list. This eclectic bar is also open for breakfast and lunch service if you’re looking for a quick bite (that coastal air really whets the appetite).

Rim-flow pool

The shimmering rim-flow pool is the jewel in the Zimbali Lodge crown, especially at sunset. It’s a favourite amongst guests looking to lounge or simply to cool off after a busy day exploring. Practice some yoga, sip Chenin in the shade, or sprawl out on the sun lounger to pick up where you left off in your latest page-turner.

Wedding venue

Say “I do” at Zimbali Lodge. From the Ngwenya Terrace to the Palm Court, this world-class venue has everything you need for that dream reception, with a range of areas to suit your ceremony. Think wedding pics against the backdrop of the Indian Ocean – what a pleasure!

Conference facilities

One thing we also do exceptionally well at Zimbali Lodge is conferences for small to large groups of up to 90 guests. We offer a range of audio-visual aids, and state-of-the-art equipment is available to delegates in three different conference rooms. Our catering service is the cherry on top — we offer both outdoor and indoor experiences.

Golf course

Ready to tee off? Grab your clubs and make a beeline for the championship 18-hole Golf Course designed by Tom Weiskopf. It is consistently ranked as one of the top twenty-five golf courses in South Africa.

Valley of the Pools

Ah, how could we forget to mention the magnificent Valley of the Pools? This seamless collection of pools boasts some of the most incredible vistas overlooking the ocean. Situated within the resort, it is probably one of the most popular spots in Zimbali for both residents and visitors who can regularly be seen mesmerised by the waves rolling in.
