My husband and I booked a 90-minute couples massage and scrub at Le Spa Tranquille, and we really enjoyed our experience. The spa was quaint and professional, and the spa services were very relaxing.

Knysna is an astoundingly beautiful and serene area that is conducive to relaxation. My wife and I visited the Le Spa Tranquille on the edge of the Knysna Lagoon, with the view making it the perfect spot for a spa. The massage rooms are toasty warm and the atmosphere refreshingly de-stressing. The personnel were very friendly and obviously well versed... More

While on honeymoon we went to Le Spa Tranquille, we had a super bubbly spa bath with a glass of champagne, dimmed lights, and soft music playing in the background. After that we went for massages, the ladies massaging us were very friendly and professional. Recommend this place to anyone who needs to be pampered. Really felt great after leaving.
