Reviewed February 5, 2010

I came here with a friend and we spent two glorious days being extraordinarily pampered. The service here is second-to-none, we had a large wooden chalet with balcony, two very large bedrooms with superbe bathrooms/showers and a vast kitchen and lounge area. Outside we had our own mini pool (there was also a communal pool just down from the chalet), braai area, sun loungers and table for four. There was complimentary tea/coffee when we arrived and complimentary port in the chalet itself. Every fixture, fitting and piece of furniture was of the highest standard (a very comfortable bed!). The spa was excellent with a wide range of treatments available in peaceful surroundings and at very reasonable prices. We enjoyed Tonquani so much that we stayed in both nights hiring DVDs (from reception) the first night and tucking into a braai (reception can arrange meat and can set it up for you too if you choose) on the second night. Tonquani's location is also fantastic: it's tucked away in the lush hills just on the outskirts of Knysna. I would recommend this place wholeheartedly and will definitely be heading back there when i'm next in SA!

Tonquani lodge was just amazing and the most hospitable lodge on our tour around South Africa.. Slept in a quite many hotels, lodges but Tonquani was definitely the ultimate best. Just felt I do not even have to say a word and the staff already knew what we wanted; great venue, yummi breakfast and awesome massages - I definitely recommend reflexology with Geraldine.. She just knows what she does :) Definitely a must when you want to stay in Knysna.

I was so happy with the whole experience from the moment I sent my first email to Tonquani Lodge. This family run Lodge is located close enough the the town to be convenient but you are completely secluded between the trees. The beautiful log cabins are very well maintained, there is well stocked mini bar, quiet aircon and the beds are comfortable. The pool area is fantastic and the food is very good. We LOVED our stay here, we were made to feel so welcome and comfortable, nothing was to much trouble! The spa treatments are AMAZING and the staff are lovely! We can't wait to return!

The employees at Tonquani isn`t just colleagues. They are more lika a family that welcomes you to one of their luxurious lodges in their beatiful garden in pictoresque surroundings. We enjoyed a romantic couple of days there including a fantastic SPA treatment. It was one of those experiences I would wan`t all of my friends and relatives to experience. Just in order to understand what a wonderful experience Tonguani is!

My wife and I spent the three day New Year weekend at Tonquani and I can only say that the place has got PZazz! From the moment you arrive you are made to feel like one of the family. The whole atmosphere is one of peace, tranquility, class and excellent service.
Sheldeen who is the owner is delightful and noyhing is too much trouble for her, she makes you feel special. Everything is spotless and the staff very courteous and helpful. We didn't want to leave and will definitely be returning.

We felt very welcome and at home at the Tonquani Lodge and were very sorry that we only booked one night there. The staff was so friendly and the lodge was cozy. It would have been a perfect base to explore the Garden Route sights as well as just relaxing by the pool and getting spa and message treatments.

stayed for 4 nights, thoroughly enjoyed it, chalets are very nice and well furbished, grounds are a little shabby in particular the gardens however, host brendan was great and the service in general was 5 star, we had bad luck with the weather so couldnt make use of the pool or garden which would have made the holiday a lot better, a good base to explore the surrounding area, bear in mind there is no room service and no bar/cafe/restauant on site so wouldnt compare it to a luxury hotel stay, overall would highly recommend for a relaxing stay
