There’s a private beach where you can soak up the sun or you can enjoy an al fresco picnic, and various walks through the sub-tropical forest are also available to book. If you’re travelling with little ones you’re also in luck as there’s a seasonal kids club and babysitting services if needed.

Roam the fairways

As you have one of South Africa’s best golf courses on your doorstep, you’d be a fool to miss out on the fairways and bunkers of Zimbali Country Club. Complemented by views of the ocean and forest, the course offers a challenging game to those playing thanks to the dramatic elevation changes and varying eco-systems. Designed by British and South African PGA champion Tom Weiskopf, the golf course is so challenging that the only way to get around the 18-holes is via golf cart. The clubhouse is a modern, colonial-style building and has everything you need for a memorable day. If that wasn’t enough, the country club also boasts putting greens, a driving range and tennis courts.

Amp up the wellness

The Willow Stream Spa at Fairmont Zimbali Resort is wellness personified. Nine treatment rooms, three outdoor cabanas, steam rooms and relaxation lounges can be found here, all of which promise the ultimate unwind. A wealth of rituals are on hand that vary from the signature Zimbali Golf Facial to more traditional treatments such as a Herbal Hot Stone Massage. Make sure to visit the Blow Dry Bar if your hair is in need of some TLC or treat your hands.
