The best fairy-tales start “once upon a time” or once upon a luxury eco estate. The Capital Zimbali Resort, within the tropical Kwa-Zulu Natal, is nothing short of magnificence. South Africa’s most iconic coastal resort has been a gem in South Africa’s tourism crown since 1996 and has since then been recognised internationally as one of the most luxurious retreats in the country. With immaculate views of the Indian Ocean, the Capital Zimbali is more than a destination, it’s an experience. Easily accessible yet adequately remote enough to enjoy the peace and quiet, The Capital Zimbali Resort was created to leave guests in awe. All the more reason to consider it a wedding venue out of your wildest dreams.
The Capital Zimbali boasts two magnificent wedding venues, equally as spectacular in their own way. Our Jubilee Ballroom features modern furnishings, perfect for a couple who appreciates sophisticated elegance. With its high ceilings and generous size suitable for 500 guests, the Jubilee Ballroom includes a pre-function area and courtyard perfectly suited for light conversation and cocktails whilst the lucky couple get ready to say “I do”. Adorned with water features and a wooden walkway, this venue displays nature in all her glory.
We have the following venues with banquet seating capacity as follows
- Jubilee Ballroom – 500 p
- King Protea – 200 p
- Azania – 160 p
- Aloe – 90 p
- Cycad – 90 p
Facilities at the Capital Zimbali include four swimming pools and the Professional Golf Course, a welcome break from any pre-wedding jitters. If you’d like to indulge yourself in a massage or facial before walking down the aisle, the Mangwanani Signature Spa is a world-class retreat, offering couple’s treatments, a Himalayan Salt Room, an indoor and outdoor pool, private cabanas, and a nail bar for the bridal party to glam up before the ceremony.
The Zimbali Country Club
This is a favourite amongst residents and guests alike, whether you’re playing a round of golf or simply soaking in the east coast sun, G&T in hand. The clubhouse is also available for corporate- or event-purposes, so it makes it the perfect place for the groom and his groomsmen to have a beer. The clubhouse staff are readily available to make sure you enjoy your stay, keeping the drinks cold and snacks in ample supply.
Finally, and most certainly not in the least, the Capital Zimbali Resort is renowned for its stunning luxury accommodation. With a variety of suites to choose from, you and your guests needn’t travel far to share your special day. Ranging from two person apartments to a villa or presidential suite accommodating six plus guests, you can rest assured that your wedding attendees end the festivities safely. And luxuriously.
Newlyweds are spoiled for choice with any of our two-person rooms, including a luxury garden room and one bedroom garden apartment, all of which feature king-sized beds, large flat screen TVs and uncapped Wi-Fi. For slightly larger accommodations, our interconnecting luxury rooms are suitable for groups of four, containing the same spoils as our luxury single rooms. Big family? Not a problem for our presidential suite. Sleeping six people or more, our ultra-modern presidential interiors and architecture are equally as extraordinary as the panoramic views of the Indian Ocean.
