Living on a farm in Namibia, we have difficulty taking up accommodation in a B&B/Lodge/Hotel in any big city. We have stayed at Aquanzi on several occasions and really enjoy the "rural feel" it offers and in-yet; it is very conveniently and closely located to everything you may wish to do in Johannesburg.

Very nice place with very friendly staff. Room was cleaned daily and the pool area was nice. Overall I felt very welcome during my time here. Stayed in the Luxury Chalet and it was superb value. I would highly recommend Aquanzi.

Aquanzi lived up to its reputation as one of Johannesburg's finest accommodation stops. Quiet country atmosphere within ten minutes of bustling Fourways. High standards of housekeeping, excellent breakfasts and charming staff. Always efficient and reliable.

We stayed here this weekend as part of a wedding party gettting married in the local vicinity. I can't praise Natalie and Brendon (the owners) enough for their hospitality/flexibility and kindness. We received a warm welcome and assistance throughout our stay way beyond the call of duty. The chalets are authentic, luxurious and tasteful. The beds were so comfortable I... More
