We have just returned from a 3 day week-end at Zimbali Lodge. The hotel is magnificent and we have seldom experienced such incredible service before. The beds were so lovely that it was hard to drag ourselves out of bed in the mornings. We had breakfast in our room on the first morning and the food was great. We stayed in a forest room and it really felt like being in a tropical forest. Our butler introduced himself on our arrival and showed us through our room; from then on he attended to our every need. I do like the idea that there is no reception counter, just a desk manned by very professional check-in staff. During the afternoons we had great lunches buy the pool. The evening meals were great and they have a good enough wine list. The pool looks lovely but even though the weather was quite warm it was impossible to swim as the pool is not heated, this is the only negative I have about the hotel. I left one of our cameras in the restaurant on our first night and only realized that it was gone on the third day, we phoned the concierge and it was duly delivered to our room –AMAZING in this day and age. We are already planning to go back.
