I was booked into this supposed '5-star' Country Lodge in the forest outside Knysna, with no mobile phone reception, which I was dependent on to continue running my businesses, and to remain in touch with my staff. Despite being '5-star' and having a 'Dining Room', they do not serve dinners! The accommodation is predominately in chalets, but I was first... More

We had the most memorable wonderful stay at Tonquani.. We initially booked for 4 nights and ended up extending our stay to 5 - we just didn't want to leave!!! The whole Tonquani Team from Maurita the GM to the lovely ladies and gents who looked after us are just the most amazing people. Truly committed to making your stay... More

We had our Honeymoon at Tonquani Lodge at the beginnig of April. We had an amazing experience there and will most definitely be visiting them again. The friendly staff made us feel at home immediately, thank you Maurita and Thawanda. We recommend this place to anyone looking for a luxury peaceful break away from every day life.

We have been at Tonquani for two nights during our honeymoon trip and it has been exceptional. The staff are especially friendly and helpful and the spa girls who gave us our treatments were very well trained and just absolute gems! I was in the beauty industry for many years and I am extremely fussy so for me to find... More

Tonquani Lodge has great facilities. The cottage we stayed in was spacious, clean and luxurious. The jacuzzi was the best! We also had a couples massage treatment. The ladies were professional and very good at their job. What a relaxing time!

Fair rates compared to other five stars acommodations. Peaceful enviroment, in the middle of nature (forest). Easy and short drive to Knysnas Waterfront. Beautifully designed and perfectly equipped rooms. Though we were a bit disappointed by the service we have expected from a five stars stay we would reccoment to everyone! (Breakfast buffet average.)

Stayed overnight on a two week Cape road trip. Good welcome and wooden cabins set in nice landscaped grounds with a reasonable sized pool. Cabins are large and comfortable and well equipped. Both the hotels recommended seafood restaurants were fully booked when we arrived. Perhaps suggesting a phone ahead reservation would be better rather than a comment the next morning... More

My Wife and I stayed there for our honeymoon in March 2015. Service was outstanding, friendly and efficient staff and nothing was too much trouble. The picnic hamper we ordered was outstanding and I would advise anyone to find a quiet stretch of beach and enjoy it.

We thought Tonquani was a really good place to stay. We were surprised when we got into our 'room' to find that it was a suite! We had a sitting room, kitchen, bathroom, dressing room and bedroom all in a cosy wooden chalet. The staff were really friendly and it was a good base for exploring the area. The staff... More
