About Knysna Tonquani Lodge & Spa

Tonquani is a beautiful place; a more suitable name could not have been chosen. The surrounding mountains, lush vegetation and the soothing sound of flowing water, mirrors the promise Tonquani offers her guests peace, tranquillity and total relaxation, reminding you that there are things more important in everyday life. The comfort and luxury this beautiful resort has to offer is immeasurable.

Most chalets accommodate two, and the family suites can comfortably accommodate five people. Each log chalet is luxurious and individually decorated, have private patios, air-conditioning, barbecues, and are serviced daily. Four of the units each have a Jacuzzi bath and fireplace, three units have private splash pools, and the executive chalet has a private spa for the ultimate in pampering.

Guests can look forward to a healthy breakfast which can, on request, be served in your chalet. For our guests’ convenience we offer an affordable on-site laundry service. Sun loungers invite you to enjoy the welcoming coolness of the main swimming pool which is set in tranquil gardens where you can also enjoy a light lunch at the pool pavilion.

For a truly unique experience, come and stay for a week at Tonquani, and join us in our annual oyster festival which draws thousands of people to our shores to celebrate, and from a reliable source, devour more than two hundred thousand oysters in 10 days! The cultivated Knysna Oyster is unique to this area, and is famous for its fresh and nutty taste. The wild coastal oyster is also readily available at local eateries, and are more salty in taste.

Knysna is one of the most beautiful quaint little towns along the Garden Route, and nestles between the impressive Outeniqua Mountains, the Indian Ocean and flanked by forests measuring some eighty thousand ha in size, which are managed to strict conservation principles. These forests are also home to the only forest elephants in South Africa. Knysna also has some unique but endangered species such as the Knysna seahorse, the Brenton Blue Butterfly, the delicate Pansy shell and the dwarf chameleon.

A wonderful experience for adults and children would be a visit to Monkeyland, a multi-species sanctuary where primates roam freely through the forest. Guests will be taken on a hour long guided forest walk where more insight is given on the different primates which range from gibbons, lemurs, capuchins to squirrel monkeys – all enjoying a natural environment. No physical contact is allowed between humans and the primates. There are platforms where fruit and vegetables are provided as the forest does not provide enough natural food. Monkeyland is situated between Plettenberg Bay and Knysna.

Tonquani is the perfect base from which to experience everything that Knysna has to offer, including an exclusive and intimate spa experience - ideal for couples and friends wanting to spend quality time together while being pampered. Tonquani, multi-award-winning Lodge & Spa – A better choice in accommodation you cannot make.

                                  We are very happy with the 5 star treatment received by the staff, the place is to die for. We we're spoiled rotten. They serve a full breakfast every morning, in or outside. Our cabin had every kind of luxury you can imagine: jacuzzi, large bathroom with shower and dressing room. Small kitchen, but a nice bedroom and living area and an outside pool. The place is situated not too far out of town. Tonquani lodge and spa, you made our honeymoon very special. We are coming back every year on our anniversary. Try this lodge when you visit Knysna.

                                  Tonquani lodge was wonderful. It is a five star accommodation yet the staff are absolutely friendly, non judgemental, accommodating and down to earth. It was really a worthwhile trip and worth every cent. Every request was accommodated and answered immediately. Thank you Tonquani !!!!

                                  Our stay here was fantastic, a place where we truly rested and relaxed. The natural environment, the spa services and the friendly staff made it even way better.
