Amanzi for honeymoon
Wow, the view at this property was stunning! We stayed in the honeymoon suite which had our very own pool! But best of all was the view! We were also ecstatic with the amazing hospitality. We were surprised with a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries which were a very nice touch. The property has bikes you can take at your leisure as well as paddle boards and kayaks to enjoy! We wished we stayed a few days instead of one night. But we will definitely be back and bring some friends!

Unbeatable views
This hotel is amazing!! A beautiful view of the Knysna heads was available in our room (Coral Suite). Leisure Isle in general was very peaceful and great for running, walking, and biking. The Amanzi staff was great and gave us great recommendations for what to do in Knysna. The hotel also had free bikes and kayaks for use (a facility we took full advantage of). Breakfast was nice and had many options available from a buffet to cooked breakfast. The room was spacious, the king sized bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was well appointed. The only criticism we have for Amanzi is that the WiFi was a WEP encrypted connection (not as secure as WPA2, etc.) and would drop out intermittently. All in all, an almost perfect relaxing vacation spot.
