Guests also have access to the facilities of the Zimbali Coastal Resort, including the communal pools, beach access, tennis and squash courts, fine dining at the hotels, and a spa facility.

We enjoyed our 4 night stay at Zimbali very much! We had a relaxing time. The house is very big and wonderfully furnished. Located within the trees, which is superb but also makes the ground floor quite shady. All in all a perfect stay!

An enjoyable stay thank you. Just to mention the door handle in the bathroom upstairs is off and it closed on me leaving me locked in the bathroom . Fortunately I called and they were able to open it from the outside. Would nt have been much fun if no one was home.Otherwise we enjoyed our stay and the professional way in which things were handled.
