Zimbali Resort or Zimbali lodge - Frequently Asked Questions
If you have children with you, undoubtedly, The Capital Resort ( Zimbali Resort ) is the hotel for you. There is far more space for the children to run around as well as a kids club during peak periods.
This would be a very personal choice. The Lodge overlooks part of the golf course and is closer to the clubhouse. Zimbali Lodge was the original hotel on the estate and does have that "golf lodge" feel to it, with the dark woods, leather chairs and the quiet elegance. It is only a short golf cart ride away from the Club house.
The Resort hotel is a 5-7 minute golf cart ride away and has more of a beach resort feel to it.
