Oh wow, we had the best time ever at Zimbali Resort. The suite accomodation had everything you needed. The decor and disign layout is fantastic. The large king size bed and room had glass doors which opened up into the huge bathroom. The bath in the middle was unique in design, the shower was large with big overhead shower spray and seperate toilet with interleading doors. The kitchen has all you need with enought tea and specialised tea to chose from, coffee ,sugar and milk. The lounge has a L shaped couch which one of the couches opens up into a double bed. The varandah overlooks the ocean.

The buffet at Coral Creek in the Resort was FANTASTIC. Such a wide selection of foods, cheeses, cold meats, roasts, veggies and pastas. The desserts were absolutely wonderful as well. The staff Nkosi in particular was very helpful in helping with a friend of mine who was blind and helped guide him around the suite to see what the unit looks like . The house keeping gentleman was very helpful as well. Thank you Zimbali Resort for a wonderful evening . FANTASTIC RESORT TO STAY IN.
