We thoroughly enjoyed our time at LIL, stayed 4 nights as part of our honeymoon. The staff go above and beyond to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Room very comfortable, breakfasts amazing and facilities very good. The location is the best, I would recommend anyone to stay on Leisure Isle rather than Knysna town. Right on the lagoon!

We arrived to find that we had been upgraded to the Penthouse Suite - which is vast. A lovely view across the lagoon. Very friendly and helpful staff (even though the reception office was undergoing alterations). Food very good.

This place is vibrant and charming. If you enjoy luxury and sophisticated elegance and you like to be as close as possible to the nature, this one is for you. We had a lagoon facing suite and enjoyed the stunning views of the lagoon and Knysna's heads. There is a bar and restaurant on the premises, so you can enjoy... More

Leisure Isle Lodge is one of the best places to stay in Knysna. Wonderful decor, beachfront location and service. The food is a little pricey, but great nevertheless. Will definitely visit with my wife again!

Unfortunately we stayed only 2 nights in the Leisure Isle lodge. The lodge is located very nicely. It is a luxury lodge where you very well can stay if you like beautiful nature and what luxury. The food is more than good and extremely special. We were the only guests but that did not stop the Cook to serve a... More

We stayed in The Leisure Isle Lodge in April 2015. For us it was paradise and a perfect place to relax. Beautifully located in the Knysna lagoon with beautiful views. Staff is wonderful and very helpful. Do try the restaurant and spa facilities as well!

We stayed at the leisure lodge for 2 days in Jan'15 . Our room was facing the pool area and therefore quite noisy as the door and windows of that room are not that sound proof at all. Room furnishing was a little old fashioned but well-kept. Breakfast was outstanding, if you get the chance, you should eat out on... More

We enjoyed our 4 nights here. Staff welcoming, very helpful with booking excursions and friendly. Meals were exceptionally good although we would have preferred more variety with the evening meal. Wonderful location and views. We also used the lodges canoes and bikes which was fun. Shower leaked but that seems to be a universal problem!
