Zimbali Coastal Resort is one of Ballito’s most prestigious assets. The magnificent 700-hectare residential resort rests on a pristine golf course that maximizes the natural landscape. It has been described as “an enthralling journey through 18 holes”, with an even dose of both challenge and charm.
The Zimbali Club House offers tennis and squash and has an ideal play area for children. There are two swimming areas; The Bushbuck pools and The Valley of the pools - a collection of 5 swimming pools that overlook the Indian Ocean with wonderful panoramic views and access to the beach.
Guests at Zimbali Coastal Resort have access to all Zimbali amenities including the Championship 18 Hole Golf Course, the 3km stretch of private beach, the Valley of the Pools, tennis and squash courts, running trails and more. There are many exciting activities to partake in such as quad biking, surfing and scuba diving.
The estate is home to many indigenous animals including a variety of buck and bird species. The estate is easily accessible and is a short 20-minute drive from King Shaka International Airport and a six-hour drive from Johannesburg.
These properties require a security deposit, in the form of a hold on your credit card, processed 1 day prior to check-in, that will be automatically released within 7 days of check-out should there be no damages, fines or fees as per the Booking/Rental Ts and Cs. In the event of a claim, there will be a 15% service fee charged on the total claim amount.
