Splash out in style!

Zimbali Coastal Resort offer guests a selection of beautiful sparkling blue swimming pools to choose from.

From the Fairmont Zimbali Resort's main pool and Beach Club pool to Zimbali Lodge's wonderful rim-flow pool with views of forever, swimmers are really spoiled for choice.

The aptly named Valley of the Pools also includes a heated pool especially for kids, and the Bushbuck Club has its own pool with slides for kids too.

Guests at Fairmont Zimbali Resort have unlimited access to all of these amazing pools, while non-guests are required to pay a nominal fee to use them.


Explore on two wheels!

Zimbali Coastal Resort offers cyclists the freedom to explore the natural beauty of the Resort on a mountain bike, which are available for use by hotel guests at the porte cochère of Fairmont Zimbali Resort.

Guests who aren’t residing at the hotel are welcome to bring their own bicycles or to rent a bicycle from the Fairmont Zimbali Resort.


In order to ensure that we offer all our visitors a pleasant and enjoyable experience when making use of our leisure facilities, kindly note a Club Leisure Pool Fee applies for non-hotel guests to use the Main Pool at only R150 per person, per day. Enjoy an elevated poolside experience; guests receive a R75 meal voucher per person (to use at either the Bite Pool Bar or at the Beach Café and Bar), and can expect value-added services on offer. For more information, kindly contact our Guest Services Team on guestservices@zimbaliresort.com or call (032) 538 5000.

Use of these areas is complimentary to guests of Fairmont Zimbali Resort.
