“Yet another visit to Tonquani Lodge”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Once again we received a very warm welcome at Tonquani. This is an excellent Guest House and certainly deserves its five star rating. Owners and staff are all very friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble for them. Breakfasts are great and they are always happy to supply snacks etc. during the day. All properties are in very good condition
We have no hesitation in recommending this establishment.

Room Tip: Chalets by the pool are smaller but ideal for two people. Larger chalets are available with steps up...

We only had one night here after two nights elsewhere in Knysna, but wanted somewhere we could have a day of relaxing and pampering; Tonquani was the perfect choice. We stayed in the king suite which was like a mini cottage with a beautiful bathroom, lounge area and the bedroom upstairs. We both had treatments at the spa and these were amazing. Great massage and it was just what we wanted to relax some more. Lovely staff added to the overall enjoyment and we could have easily have stayed longer. Perfect for a day or few days relaxing whilst exploring the area.

Absolutely gorgeous surroundings, clean, tidy rooms and exceptional service. My only criticism is that we had to request our room be serviced every day and the breakfasts were a bit monotonous for a lengthy stay (we stayed about a week and a half). However, the food was very good, it just needed some variation for people who stay longer. We had spa treatments as well which were fantastic - undoubtedly the absolute best spa treatments I have ever had.

Room Tip: Stay longer! We got a discount on our room because we stayed over a week which made this place very...

We would highly recommend this delightful place to even the most discerning travellers.
The standard of attention and service by ALL staff was exceptional!
In addition we were assisted with tours, restaurant recommendations and bookings which was greatly appreciated, us never having travelled in this area before.

As we commented on our departure - outstanding! finesse! We really do hope to return for a longer stay in the future.

Room Tip: Chalet room, poolside - amazing!

As soon as we arrived at these fantastic lodges we were greated by a friendly and enthusiastic Sheldeen who reommended all the great things we could do in Knysna. We received a welcoming drink before our luggage was taken up to one of the well decorated and very comfortable lodges (with deck, braai, and view of the pool). Breakfast was served by Brendon who is a great source of information on what's good to do and see in the area. All in all we had a fantastic stay and only wish all accomodation along the garden route was as good as this.

Beautiful lodges with the option of self-catering. All lodges are well hidden behind the trees and flowery bushes in a huge garden with privacy guaranteed. They are tastefully and nicely decorated and all have a deck with a nice view. Brendon and staff do an excellent job to assure you that you will have a good stay. They can arrange the best golf packages at some beautiful golf courses in the area. Not surprised that they are considered as one of the top lodges in the area. Will definitely come back and will bring some clubs too.

We came to Tonquani a bit apprehensive because we regarded it as a play ground for celebrities and the super rich. What a surprise with the friendly welcome and all the effort made to make our experience a memorable one! For the first time in our experiences, we really felt very much appreciated and were actually treated as real celebrities. From the friendly sharing of information about attractive places to visit around Knysna and Plet, to the unique wilderness surroundings of Tonquani, we never imagined we will one day feel in oneness with nature. From touching and feeding elephants at Knysna Elephant Park, being in close proximity with the big five at Plet Nature Reserve to sharing the forest with a variety of exotic monkey species at Monkey World, was a life time experience and we felt like in paradise. The icing was the exciting and fulfilling experience we got from the Peddle Cruiser in the Knysna lagoon. The experience of the entire stay at Tonquani left lasting memories in our lives. Thank you very much Tonquani!
