Reviewed 21 December 2012

We had a great time at Tonquani. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. The rooms are beautiful and they attend to the smallest detail. Will definitely be back again :-) , and then we will stay in room that overlooks the swimming pool.

My stay at Tonquani Lodge and Spa was amazing! There is no better word. It is jaw droppingly beautiful, so peaceful, so quite and so wonderful. I was lucky enough to be there for about 10 days and each of them was perfect!
When we arrived we were put straight at ease, bought some tea & coffee and instantly we were relaxed after our 5 hour drive! We were given pamphlets on the surrounding areas, information of Knysna and then they booked a table for us for dinner.
Honestly, I cannot praise the staff enough! Nothing was too much trouble and you hear that phrase thrown around a lot but honestly, I left feeling like I’d made a group of friends. They were so wonderful, so helpful & so understanding. Even the members of staff that I didn’t see all that often were friendly, they remembered you and every day you were greeted with a smile!
We didn’t have a single problem during our stay!
The rooms are just divine! So large, airy and fantastically decorated! For those who want a cosy night in, there is a selection of dvd’s, the TV is good and our lodge had both an ac and a heater – just in case!
Knysna as a location is just fantastic because it is so close to places! You can go and be a tourist or even be a local (or act it in my case) because there is so much to do in the surrounding areas! There is an endless list of possibilities of what you can do. I personally went for a walk with a cheetah, did some surfing, went whale/dolphin/seal watching, went to a wolf sanctuary (and fell in love with a pigmy goat!), went to museums, shopped, ate at a lot of restaurants with a lot of gorgeous food, bungee jumped and genuinely had the time of my life!
The spa is obviously a must, Geraldine is just magical! If I could have had it my way I would’ve been in there every day!
In all honesty, Tonquani Lodge and Spa made our trip! Thank you guys so much! I miss you all already!
Ps - The breakfasts are amazing! I recommend the French toast and don’t forget the bacon!

We have had a wonderful time at Tonquani Lodge. Everybody was so kindly and helpful.
The Tonquani Lodge is a location like paradise, situated in a wonderful garden, quiet rooms with all you need. We wanted to stay for three nights, but we left after six nights. A great amizing time. We hope, we'll come back to South Africa with our friends or our children. Then we'll come back to Tonquani Lodge. Sure :-)

We arrived late and we were greeted by a smiling Tawanda. The lodge which was upgraded was absolutely amazing. It was accomodation to the highest of standards. All the staff were friendly and extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. We will definately stay longer than 4 nights on our return which will hopefully be in the near future. Vince, Stell and Brendon should be proud of their little gem. MANY THANKS TO ALL FOR A WONDERFUL STAY.

Room Tip: Lodge No. 12 was excellent

extremely courteous and friendly. Beautiful accommodations, which I would recommend for a stay in Knysna always. The rooms are very comfortable und the price is very low.
The next stop in Knysna will already be in Tonquani Lodge & Spa!

When we made our SA trip, we (family of 3 adults) picked Tonquani Lodge for our stay in Knysna. Perfectly located, peaceful and quiet and within 5 min of the Knysna center. From start to finish everything was as good as it can be. The staff was very friendly and helped us where ever we needed. Almost felt like they were family. Our cabin was quite large and had an own patio with swimmingpool and braai, which we used on the last night. Would definitely recommend this lodge and hope to get back here soon.
