Loved the place, the service, the ambience.... it had everything you need, including your own private deck. Special attention had been given to trying to give each cabin total privacy. We looked down on the lagoon and the light was just amazing. During loadshedding we lit the candles and spent our time in the lovely big bath-tub. The staff were... More

We were spoilt with a Daddy's deal for two nights and extended ourselves with an extra night. Rooms very tasteful, views indescribable and attention from staff exemplary. Breakfast by arrangement at an extra cost but only 3 minutes from central Knysna - so much to do, so little time.

Arriving quite late, we were warmly welcomed by Fish! ; ) Our accommodation was incredible and spacious and the morning and evening view of the lake was spectacular. The huge bath/Jacuzzi in the bathroom also has a view and being on honeymoon made it so much more romantic and relaxing! Would definitely visit again!!
