Amanzi is such an amazing place. Their services are out of this world and the hospitality definitely calls you to come back. The employees are always at the guest's service and would do anything for the guests to feel comfortable and accommodated. I would personally choose Amanzi over and over again.

Hotel's Favourite
This was our seventh visit to Amanzi. I should start the review by saying that we were due to stay at Amanzi in July 2019, for the annual marathon and half marathon. Unfortunately my youngest was not able to travel due to illness. Amanzi very kindly, without obligation to do so, moved the reservation a year out for the 2020 race, which we greatly appreciated. The 2020 race was cancelled due to the pandemic and so it was that we came in September, the pandemic regulations having been partially lifted allowing us to travel - we were keen to support our local tourism industry, particularly Amanzi, in these difficult times. On arrival we received the usual warm welcome. The staff were very aware of the pandemic requirements and as a consequence we were very comfortable throughout our stay. Room was spotless. Views were as spectacular as always. Amanzi is situated in what I consider to be the best location in Knysna - peace and quiet, but within a 15 minute shuttle drive, provided by Amanzi, to the town. The buffet part of the breakfast was no longer available, but was proficiently combined with the off menu breakfast so as to be as good as always. All the staff were excellent - welcoming and homely. On our third and final evening we opted to dine in. Great choice. It was clear that the chef had gone out of his way with the offering - the food and ambience was fantastic and we and our daughters had a really great evening. Another great stay. We'll be back next year. ps - gardens are looking great !

Our stay in Amanzi was amazing thank you. The rooms were outstanding with every little small detail attended too. They were spacious with awesome bathrooms. The Sea View room we had was just sublime and we spent many hours just admiring the view and the colourful sunsets. Lovely pool area to relax in and all staff were very friendly. The freely available bikes and canoes made adventures around the island lots of fun.

My son enjoyed going on this trip, the only issue I had was the chicken wings I ordered from the restaurant. They were so dry all of them, it's like they were not fresh and used the sauce as a disguise.
