We were both pleasantly surprised with the superior service and reception. The room was fantastically laid out. The furnishings incredibly comfortable and the whole place beautifully decorated. We will definitly be back in the future. And a really big thank you for making our stay so special.

We couldn’t fault the friendliness and hospitality of the staff here, nothing was too much trouble for them. We thoroughly enjoyed our honeymoon her in the beautiful surroundings and light, airy rooms. Fantastic and would recommend to anyone.

My husband and our 2 friends had a lovely time in knysna that was only enhanced by the wonderful helpful staff and perfect accomodation at Amanzi! Truly special lodge in every way.

Hil & Sandy Waters (USA)

A wonderful stay from check-in to check-out. All staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was very extensive and delicious, as well as the dinner which we had every evening in the lodge. The location right on the bay is unique and we would book this place anytime again.

My darling wife Desiree and I were on honeymoon, our stay was above and beyond our expectations, we loved the decor. It matched the theme of our wedding, earth and ocean.

Andre & Desiree (South Africa)

Everything was very beautiful and clean. The best part they had complimentary bikes so you could ride them around the island.

Had a really fantastic stay. Highly recommended. Great staff, Perfect location and unbeatable views. I have been fortunate enough to have stayed in many places around the world and I would rate Amanzi Island Lodge as one of the best!

TG (Cape Town)

The location close to knysna heads on leisure island is really great. We loved the beautiful interior and also the pretty surroundings outside with a lovely pool area and many little places to chill and hang out. Due to some rain and our short stay we couldn’t take advantage of the bike and kayak rental, but it is a wonderful opportunity to explore the area. They even offer a pre booked dinner, which we really enjoyed a lot after a busy day. We would definitely stay again!
