Wedding Venues

Fairmont Zimbali Lodge

At Fairmont Zimbali Lodge, we offer two venues for your special day.

The Ngwenya Terrace
Set under the shelter of the Lodge’s quaint and intimate open terrace with exposed dark wood beams overhead, lush indigenous forest below you and magnificent sea views in the distance. A cascading infinity pool and championship golf course accompanies you as 180-degree views of the surrounding areas’ hills provide a breathtakingly romantic backdrop.

Palm Court
Prepare to be enthralled by our grand colonial staircase, which has provided a picturesque entrance for many beautiful brides over the years. Overlook the sapphire blue infinity pool as stately tall palms sway above, lending a tropical ambiance to the venue. An ideal ceremony site, featuring surrounding views of the Indian Ocean and the remarkable indigenous forest – for an intimately romantic setting.

Both venues can cater to a maximum of 90 people.
