Another quality that the Fairmont resort can showcase proudly is its proximity to one of South Africa’s greatest golf courses. Guests enjoy special discounts for the 18-hole course which is open all year round. The Fairmont offers state of the art conference facilities including two elegant boardrooms and a 2,583 ft2 ballroom as well as a selection of social and corporate function rooms. Coupled with the amazing golf course this really is the perfect pair for any corporate retreat.
The hotel is within five minutes of Ballito, a very popular holiday city, within 20 minutes of Umhlanga and within 30 minutes of Durban, home to a wonderful aquarium housing an array of stunning marine wildlife. Also on hand for anyone willing to leave the hotel for a day is Ukhahlamba-Drakensburg Park, declared a world heritage site by UNESCO, the park pays homage to its Afrikaans and Zulu ancestry. This is the ideal place for avid hikers and backpackers to visit a bit of South Africa’s history as well as its nature. It is also possible to relive the Day of the Dead Moon with a guide on Zulu battlegrounds. The Day of the Dead Moon is the name, given by the Zulu people, of the battle that happened in 1879 during a rare solar eclipse.
All in all, the Fairmont Zimbali Resort is a beautiful, well-crafted, stunningly designed hotel. Equipped to welcome all guests.
