Fairmont Zimbali

Fairmont Zimbali Resort is a 5-star extravaganza located in the heart of the exclusive Zimbali Golf Estate. This magnificent hotel resort development, managed by the international management company Fairmont, is superbly designed to provide 180° vistas of the Indian ocean, from the majority of its 174 luxury suites, magnificent dining experiences and world-class facilites, including an almost Olympic size swimming pool, health spa, and gymnasium.


The Zanzibar Beach Hotel is located on the north east coast of Zanzibar's main Island (Ungunja), 55 minutes from Zanzibar Kisauni International Airport. Fringed by the east coast's 45 kilometres of powder white sandy beach, the hotel site includes lush tropical gardens and occupies a 350-metre stretch of pristine open beachfront. One of the resort's main attractions will be its unsurpassed water sports facilities, providing boating, fishing charters, as well as a fully-equipped dive centre with a decompression chamber; one of only three in Africa and the Indian Ocean.


The Legend Golf and Safari Resort design and layout has been constructed to minimise the impact of development on the natural environment. It preserves the pristine bushveld and makes the Resort one of the most environmentally sensitive of its kind in Africa. The Resort includes privately owned homes, but also an 18 Hole championship golf course, a golf academy, a driving range, a hotel, recreational facilities, a wellness centre, as well as a multi-functional conference centre and the legendary Extreme 19th.


Boschendal is one of the oldest wine farms in South Africa with a French viticultural heritage dating back to 1685. Boschendal is set on a 2 240 hectare estate between Stellenbosch and Franschhoek in the Western Cape, and consists of vineyards which cover an area of 254 hectares, extending for six kilometres along the slopes of the Groot Drakenstein Mountain towards the Dwarsriver and the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain. Boschendal is currently the site of a proposed mixed-use development.

Global Property Corporation

The operating ethos of Global Property Corporation is designed by Wessel Witthuhn around the simple Construction management or construction project management (CPM) philosophy.

We are responsible for the overall planning, coordination, and control of a project from beginning to completion, aimed at meeting a client's requirement in order to produce a functionally and financially viable construction project.

Once the project has been designed and is ready for tender, we select the right contractor by using one of the three selection methods:

  • • low-bid selection
  • • best-value selection or;
  • • qualifications-based selection

Our team has over 100 years combined regional and international hands-on development experience and direct access to the industry's leading consultants. We provide: total hospitality advisory, total management and development solutions; concept inspiration, and the skills that every developer and owner requires to deliver their vision.

Our Professional Approach

At Global Property Corporation we always apply a cost-efficient approach to delivering the most innovative and imaginative development projects on time and within budget.

Global Property Corporation prefers to enter into a single source consultancy agreement in order to provide all the management, design and supervision services required for the duration of a project, as a one-stop service. This approach provides the owner with a single point of contact during the development and for the effectively control of the project through the feasibility, design, procurement, construction and commissioning phases.

Experienced Quantity Surveyors ensure tight cost control services on the project that will withstand the highest scrutiny standards of our clients, their auditors and stakeholders.

On appointment, and according to the client's preferred method of procurement, we pre-qualify, select and appoint a professional team, various contractors, sub-contractors and suppliers based on their track record and experience on similar projects. We are also able to source a suitable operating company that will ultimately manage the development on the client's behalf.
