An absolute pleasure! The lodge is beautifully furnished; large, comfortable rooms and a lovely lounge with wood fire burning. Breakfasts were generous and top quality. Our hosts really went the extra mile to ensure we had a memorable stay, and I love the extra's like the bicycles to ride around the island.

The Amanzi Lodge is well located with great views of the The Heads literally at the doorstep. Even the standard rooms provide good quality spacious comfort and you are made to feel very welcome. An excellent example of Western Cape hospitality.Knysna is an excellent centre for exploring the most attractive parts of the Garden Route.
