We stayed here during our honeymoon - in the Cherry Cape Chalet (lovely!) - and had a fabulous time! We were made to feel very welcome and had the most relaxing few days in the sunshine.

The staff were great, as were the breakfasts, the nearby waterfront was great for evening meals, and the BBQ in the garden was fab!

I indulged in a deep tissue massage and it was amazing! I felt so relaxed afterwards, it was the best massage I've ever had!

If you're heading to Knysna, look to further than Tonquani Lodge & Spa!

Unluckly we stayed in Tonquani for just on day and one night but we were really enchanted by this place.
It's warm, comfortable, very well managed, the cottages are spectacular, an explosion of colors. The rooms inside are wide, clean and studied in every details. There is also a very comfortable spa (they use gorgeous products there!) and it's completely dipped in lush vegetation, close to the waterfront but far from crowd and noise of every kind.

The breakfast is very good and abundant, the staff is very kind and helpful and the price is absolutely right for such a place! in one word the Tonquani is perfect.
Knysna is the pearl of the garden Route and we will certainly go back there and to Tonquani!

This was our third trip to Tonquani in 2 years and as usual the staff and our chalet did not disappoint. We stayed at in the Milkwood chalet and it was totally luxurious. On arrival we were greeted like old friends and it felt as if we had never left. We had a large welcome basket filled with goodies and our bathroom and bedroom was decorated with flowers. What we enjoyed most was the tv in the bathroom. Nothing like spending a busy day sightseeing and then relaxing in the bath watching your favourite soaps!!The breakfasts did not fail to disappoint either. Unfortunately the spa was fully booked but will definetly try it when we return to Tonquani!

Room Tip: choose a room with the tv in the bathroom

All the glowing reviews on this site are accurate. The chalets are very private, birds singing in the trees, attentive staff...uncrowded and peaceful. We felt like were royalty. I wish we were still there.

On our arrival my heart sank, as i feel the garden and surroundings could do with a good clean up and TLC. However, on getting to our cabin, with the immediate assistance from the staff we were pleasantly surprised. Our entire weekend was met with fantastic breakfasts in our room, a fire all the time, stunning service at the spa. Clean, crisp white linen, daily service to clean the room. We enjoyed every minute.
