We regrettably only spent one night here on a recent business trip, but my husband often spends time here when he is in the area for business. From the moment you enter you are made to feel exceptionally welcome. All the amenities are explained in detail by the super friendly and efficient staff, the rooms are beautifully decorated, as is... More

We recently spent four days at Amanzi Island Lodge. We visit Knysna annually for the Oyster Festival half marathon and I have to say that, without a doubt, this was one of the best places I have ever stayed at anywhere along the Garden Route. A friend recently described it as "A little piece of Heaven on Earth" and they... More

We stayed here once again, for our annual visit at the time of the Knysna marathon and half marathon. The property is perfectly placed on Leisure Isle, with picture perfect views over the lagoon. Leisure Isle is a tranquil place, with this property no exception. Check in was friendly and efficient and we stayed once more in room 4, upstairs,... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at Amanzi Island Lode. The staff were friendly, the room was spacious and comfortable and from check in to check out we were treated like royalty. The breakfast was well prepared with a good continental cold breakfast and traditional English hot breakfast. Its now our preferred accommodation in Knysna.

We ended our honeymoon here and I wish we could stay here a bit longer, such great, professional and friendly service! They go the extra mile for their guests. We received complimentary champagne and snacks on our arrival, followed by complimentary cake in the afternoon. When we got back to the lodge in the evening a cozy fire was lit... More

We had a fabulous time, very thankful you could help us when we desperately needed a place to take our youth. Because of you we managed to capacitate young people about Teenage pregnancy, gangsterism, and drug and substance abuse. Its just a pity we didn't have sufficient funds to stay longer as expected

This was what I was looking for. Save, nature, quiet, privacy, time to pull up my strings with our Father. The path to the cross & spending time with HIM was the best! You definitely see me again!!!!!

Facilities and activities available of excellent. Rooms very good standard and well equipped kitchen and room. Wonderful views of nature, horizon and wild life. Bird watchers dream with the amount of birds around the chalets.
