A hidden paradise in Durban

Just outside Durban (a mere twenty minute drive from the new King Shaka International airport) lies a beautiful, lush, coastal paradise: The Fairmont Zimbali Coastal Resort – capital letters intended! The coastal resort is made up of the Zimbali Resort and the Zimbali Lodge, and we were lucky enough to spend a blissful weekend there a few weeks ago…

Let me start by saying that the Friday we spent at Zimbali was one of the best Fridays I can ever remember having. Allow me to elaborate:

Now, I ask you, when did you last have a Friday like that?! If I could choose a day to live over Groundhog Day style, that day would be a strong contender.

What’s so great about the Fairmont Zimbali Resort is that it is clearly a 5 star hotel, with 5 star service, but it doesn’t have any of the 5 star stuffiness – it’s extremely child-friendly and has a delightfully relaxed atmosphere. My kind of place.
