“Beautiful property and wonderful people!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

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.

Room Tip: Room no 1 & 2 are the best!

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 recommend this lodge to anyone. Will be back for sure!

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 was an excellent touch! But could do with bigger more modern TVs.

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, Tawanda & James

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent in this ideal quiet location
