The Fairmont Zimbali Lodge is one of two Fairmont brands in the Zimbali complex that includes an 18 hole course designed by Gary Player, private beach access, spas, and a private conservation area.

The Lodge is a more rustic older sister to the Resort but each has its own characters and charm. The service is Fairmont consistent and the views of the lush jungles and ocean are quite memorable!
