We had a very good time in South Africa and the Tonquani team made it special for us with the warm welcome and the fabulous breakfasts. We loved the rooms and the hospitality that they offered! I am sure ill be staying with them in my next visit and I recommend it everyone who visits Knysna.

What an amazing experience after 6 hours of travel! Rooms are big and the bathroom unbelievable. The fireplace in the lounge just made the whole experience so much nicer as the evening was rather cold. Friendly and helpful staff and superb accommodation. Breakfast a feast and will definitely be back!

We booked a couples massage and head massage at Tonquani while visiting Knysna. From arriving we had excellent and friendly service. It's a stunning and peaceful lodge, will definitely try to stay there in the future. Spa was small but so peaceful with very friendly and professional therapists. They have a variety of treatments available at good rates. Will definitely... More

We stayed overnight at Tonquani Lodge & Spa on route back to Cape Town. We were warmly greeted and welcomed at reception and we immediately felt at home. Our room was exquisite and beautifully decorated. 5 Star Quality. Exceptional value for money. Service was excellent! Cannot wait for our next stay at Tonquani!

Stayed three nights here; staff were excellent - really helpful and looked after us exceptionally well. Unfortunately the weather was terrible and this meant the chalet was quite cold. Nice tiled bathroom needed some heating to stop the damp and condensation! But there was a lovely gas fireplace in the middle of the room. TV in front of the bath... More

This is a superb hotel and spa. The service is impeccable and all the staff went far beyond the requirements of their role to ensure we were comfortable . They recommended restaurants and organised taxis to make sure we felt secure. The breakfast and snacks were superb. We will return but next time for longer! Staff to mention particularly -Maurita,...

We had a lovely and relaxing spa treatment, included a 30 minute sauna session. The beauticians were very professional and friendly. Made us feel at ease and relaxed. This is a relaxing and affordable treat! Setting is tranquil and feels hidden away.

I had a very short stay at Tonquani and could not enjoy all the facilities on offer. The log cabin was cosy and the massage was good. I enjoyed my stay and can confirm that the service was super friendly. The cabins are larger than expected and the property is lush and green. A great option if travelling as a... More

My husband and I went to Tonquani Spa for our anniversary. The place is so serene and the people so friendly. The spa was fabulous, we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. P.S. The scalp massage is a must!
