Great Zimbabwe Hotel

Discover Great Zimbabwe Hotel

The closest hotel to the Great Zimbabwe Monument, The Great Zim Hotel is the ideal place from which to explore the historical treasure. Set in well-manicured grounds, the hotel offers a range of facilities and is a good accommodation option for the area, with spacious rooms, a pleasing restaurant and bar, cooling dips in the hotel pool and games of tennis on the lawns.

However, taking in the nearby Monument is the real reason for a stay here. Only a short walk away from the hotel, the age-old city is fashioned from ancient stone, dating back hundreds of years, and has been proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Guests can explore the mysterious ruins and uncover their secrets by going on a guided tour. It's a wonderful experience and a must for travellers who enjoy stepping back in time and discovering more about a country's past.

Rooms at the Great Zim are all set in the hotel gardens and are quite roomy with en-suite bathrooms and modern amenities, including a TV and a hairdryer. Guests can expect 38 single and double rooms along with a number of additional accommodation options, including standard suites found in separate buildings close to the hotel, a deluxe suite and a family suite. Room service and laundry service are on offer to guests and staff are warm and welcoming.
