Excellent Service, friendly and helpful staff. Amazing room. Nice hideaway to relax and recharge your soul. Will definitely be back soon. Breakfast was amazing and tranquil as the natural surroundings calms you down.

My boyfriend and I had the pleasure of doing a trip along the garden route. We decided to stay at Tonquani Lodge and spa because of the Jacuzzi facilities and spa services. However we were a little disappointed when we arrived, we were told that we had been upgraded to the better Family chalet. With the bigger space came the cold temperatures, the electric blankets were the only things that made the nights sleep bare able. There was also no Jacuzzi in the Family chalet which was one of the main reasons we selected this establishment.

When arriving we were encouraged to have our breakfast sent up to our chalet. Which was a nice personal touch. The next day we had the breakfast sent up to us, unfortunately it was one of the worst breakfasts. The coffee was cold, the breakfast was ice cold and the fruit salad had only two fruits mixed together. The two mornings we did come down for breakfast nothing was set out. It was like the dining area hadn't been used in awhile. It seemed as though things were a little bit unorganized. I must say Maurita the lady we met on the morning of our departure was amazing its a pity we didn't meet earlier.

I did have the pleasure of having a massage at the spa which was definitely the highlight of my stay at Tonquani Lodge and Spa. Very professional and relaxing!

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!
