I visited Zimbali many years ago before it became an estate and was taken over by Fairmont so I kind of new what to expect. The rooms are still exactly the same and very well maintained. The forest sounds at night are really special! The pools which have been built by the beach are located in a lovely setting HOWEVER the last thing which you will receive for free is your fruit juice welcome drink. Meals are crazy expensive! The drinks are ridiculously expensive, we didn't enjoy the lovely pool area at the lodge as we had two drinks at the pool on the first day and I just decided that I am not going to settle for these crazy prices.
We have been to five star lodges before and it is not necessary to burn holes in your guests pockets in such a way! We found guests on numerous occasions who would walk into the lodge with Takeaways and Woolworths packets boycotting the lodge's refreshments and meals.
The room is lovely, the setting is beautiful but the prices put us off completely. I doubt we will return.More
