    Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has opened Fairmont Zimbali Resort, an exclusive 154-room property, located along the eastern coast of South Africa. Fairmont Zimbali Resort joins the Fairmont Zimbali Lodge, a 76-room property set nearby along the beach.

    ’Zimbali’ is the Zulu word for ‘Valley of Flowers’. The hotel is located between a 700-hectare forest reserve and the beaches of Kwa-Zulu Natal’s Dolphin Coast on the Indian Ocean.

    The resort is 15 minutes from the new King Shaka International Airport (KSIA). Soccer fans will appreciate being just a short drive away from Durban, one of the nine host cities of the 2010 FIFA World Cup that kicks off in mid-June.

    The hotel features a lounge, steakhouse, beach club, tapas bar, pool and cocktail bar. There is also a ballroom that can hold 180 guests, as well as a chapel for weddings.
