HI, We booked into the Fairmont Lodge, and we upgraded our room to a suite at the hotel as the lodge was not what we expected it to be. The hotel is amazing, i would recommend booking at the hotel instead of the lodge

Don't forget the Monkees
We enjoyed the hotel very much. First rate facilities and great restaurant. We had a very nice balcony but they did not warn us about keeping doors closed so I came in once to the monkeys feasting on our cookies and coffee! But no real harm done and they were quick to clean up the mess. There also was a mix-up on some laundry but they were diligent about parceling it - and did not charge me for the cleaning. The only downside of the hotel is that it is a bit isolated and expensive to hire cars to go into town or visit surrounding areas.

Good clean hotel with wonderful surroundings
It was an amazing trip and we enjoyed our stay at the Zimbali Lodge. The only down side was that we had no internet connection for nearly 3 days when we were there.
