The staff of Amanzi made our stay here an absolute pleasure, they helped us with good restaurant advices and best of all shuttle service so...

Oh, this is a lodge that spoils you. From the location, to the common room,to the room itself, to the small extras (luxury soaps, chocolate on your pillow, free biltong and nuts at the housebar). The people who run this are great, We felt welcome, they had a ton of information about Knysna and the surroundings and they were very...

We really enjoyed our visit at Amanzi. The lodge is located on Leisure Island in the Knysna lagoon and has a great view on the Knysna Heads and the ocean. Our room was very stylish and beautifully decorated while being very clean and spacious. Leisure Island itself is a very safe and calm environment and perfect for an early morning...

Had a truly wonderful stay with our parents at the Amanzi Lodge and we cannot believe we have not done this earlier. Beautiful, thought through and comfy rooms made our stay unforgettable. With it's amazing location and friendly staff we will most definitely come back to enjoy this experience again.

We stayed at Amanzi last year and had no hesitation in booking again for this year when we returned in August. The setting is superb and we just love the upstairs bedroom with two bathrooms. We were slightly taken aback to find that the people we had been communicating with regarding the booking had sold the business, it would have...

We only stayed one night, but were still greeted with a warm welcome. The B&B is beautifully decorated and is in a good location with great views. The breakfast was good and the staff were all very helpful. It's a shame we only stayed one night, we would definitely stay there again.
