Eleven spacious, well appointed, individually decorated suites or double-rooms en suite enjoy either magnificent lagoon views or open out onto the garden and swimming pool.

To add to the charm and intimacy, the soft, fine linen; huge beds and thick white towels quietly whisper romance. Of course each room is equipped with satellite television, mini bars, beverage facilities, hairdryers, heated towel rails, under floor heating and ceiling fans.

What sets Leisure Isle Lodge apart from ordinary accommodation establishments is the extraordinary effort that goes into making each and every guest feel like they're the only ones. Some may refer to this as 'going the extra mile' or that 'something special', but it's the only way we know:  Little personal touches bring a smile...

Knysna is always a hive of activity - whether during the day or through the night. Local restaurants are sure to wake those taste buds of yours, and for those looking for a cold ale or exotic cocktail, well... you have certainly come to the right place...

After a hearty breakfast you can look forward to all that Leisure Island has to offer - you could take a stroll around the island, perhaps cast a rod onto the waters of the lagoon, or enjoy a leisurely early morning swim in one of many little bays or beaches close to the lodge. For those who prefer a warmer and more luxurious experience, our heated swimming pool is a winner, come rain or shine. And for the more energetic, there are bicycles, wind-surfers and paddle skis available.

As far as activities further afield go, Knysna is famous for its 'village' atmosphere - there is so much to see and do! Spend the day exploring the art routes with galleries, shops, arts & crafts, bistros, golf courses, game parks, restaurants and pubs. Remember, no visit to Knysna is complete without savouring a walk or drive in the indigenous forests.

With the end of the day brings a return to the lodge to take in one of the magnificent sunsets. What better way to end a perfect day?

Leisure Isle Lodge The Garden Route

“The Garden Route and Klein Karoo occupy a special place in South Africa’s constellation of tourist offerings, providing as they do a microcosm of the South African Experience. The thrilling contrast between a vast and stark Karoo adjoining a verdant Garden Route, is typically South African.” Moeketsi Mosola, CEO South African Tourism.
