About Leisure Isle Lodge

If you enjoy luxury and sophisticated elegance, Leisure Isle Lodge will delight you. Savour the sights and sounds of Knysna, perfectly positioned on Bollard Bay near the majestic Heads. Leisure Isle Lodge is an exceptional retreat offering superb accommodation and uncompromising levels of service.

Wake up to an orchestra of exotic birds, the slow and steady roll of waves and our delicious breakfasts served on the deck overlooking the lagoon. Take in one of the magnificent sunsets while sipping on a sundowner and enjoy exciting contemporary cuisine, complimented by quality wines, in the elegant and intimate restaurant, as well as pleasant evenings in the lounge and bar.

The idyllic picture postcard scene is an everyday reality of life on Leisure Isle, a tiny island set in the midst of the vast Knysna Lagoon on the spectacular Garden Route coast. Linked to the mainland by a narrow causeway, Leisure Isle is a haven of peace and tranquility. Leisure Isle boasts an art gallery, fine dining, a small boat harbour, and its own nature reserve teeming with a vast variety of bird life. Less than a 10 minute drive from the centre of Knysna, Leisure Isle is perfectly positioned to take full advantage of all the activities the town and its environs has to offer, while maintaining seclusion and safety.

Here at Leisure Isle Lodge, we aim to create an atmosphere of enjoyment, luxury, and ultimate peace of mind which is why we take pride in our high levels of service and upmarket facilities we offer. Within the privacy and tranquility of Leisure Isle Lodge is our own, privately-run Skin Renewal Spa, where guests can indulge their senses at our intimate facility.

Take an island stroll, try your hand at a little lagoon fishing, enjoy a leisurely swim in one of the island’s safe bays or beaches, paddle across the lagoon in a canoe, ride a mountain bike around the island, or take a dip in our eco-friendly swimming pool. Guests also enjoy full member privileges at the world-class Simola Golf Course.
