Amanzi Island Lodge

  • Available

from R495 PPS

Overview

On the edge of the beautiful Knysna lagoon, this spacious beach-house offers luxurious comfort, tranquility and spectacular views.

After a warm Leisure Isle welcome, take a relaxing stroll across the rippled sand and return to enjoy a glass of wine on your private balcony or patio. Indulge in a scrumptious breakfast on the terrace each morning while you watch the tides slowly turn beneath the majestic Knysna Heads. Air-conditioning

Bicycles and canoes are available. Wifi connection. Credit cards.
Children by arrangement.

A beautiful, secluded island in the heart of the Knysna lagoon, Leisure Isle is surrounded by soft white sand and washed by the azure water of the Indian Ocean.

You’ll soon understand why the Lodge was named, quite simply, “Amanzi”, the South African word for water. As it is amanzi that greets you first thing in the morning as you draw your curtains, and the soft lapping of the amanzi against the edge of the island, that lulls you to sleep at night.

On the water’s edge, the guesthouse overlooks the lagoon towards the Knysna Heads, two headlands forming the channel through which the Indian Ocean enters the lagoon.
Amanzi Island Lodge is a 10-minute drive from the center of Knysna, a bustling town in the center of the South African Garden Route. Reservations and bookings for lagoon cruises, whale watching, bungy jumping and guided forest tours can gladly be made at our reception.

At the end of the day return to our bed and breakfast to sip a sundowner on our balcony or relax by the pool and unwind as the sun sets behind the Western Headland.

Guest Comments

My wife & I spent two nights and a day and could not fault a thing about the experience.
Sue, Helen, Margaret and the kitchen staff were all exteremely friendly, made bookings and shopping recommendations and generally made our stay all we could have wanted.
Will be back in future.
