I keep on coming back to Aquanzi Lodge since my first stay in August 2017 and it's probably been my 10th stay at this place and it's always great. The lodge is a stunning place, a quiet and peaceful retreat with beautiful communal areas and tastefully decorated, extremely well maintained and spacious rooms. It's truly a hidden gem not far from the hustle and bustle of the city. During our last stay we were lucky enough to stay at one of the honeymoon suites, absolutely amazing. But also the other rooms are great, I've been staying in all of them meanwhile and there's none of them I wouldn't recommend to anyone. Margit and Nathalie and also the staff are great hosts, no request is too much for them and everything is always working out perfectly and literally everyone is going the extra mile with a smile. It's one of the greatest places I've ever stayed and I will always come back. Thanks Aquanzi team for always making my time in Johannesburg a perfect one!

Had an awesome stay. The staff is very friendly and will respond to requests at a very high speed. The rooms are very spacious and very clean. The best stay I ever did as a solo traveler. It is very close to 2 malls and ordering food is easy and delivery is quick.

I was looking forward to using the heated pool...but was booked out to scuba diving classes...I think that it should be stated in their booking form that the pool is unusable. Food was mediocre. On a positive the staff where very friendly and accommodating.

Vague T&C's given. Place did not stick to original agreement on monthly renting, and demanded full payment before the day of check-in, which was not the original discussion. We had paid a deposit to secure our chalet, which was anyway given to another tenant before our date to check in - though they at least offered a better chalet in the waiting for our original one to open up. Owner was very rude & accused us of being aggressive, where we simply asked why they don't have a facility to pay the balance with a card at check in. They had originally told us we can pay the balance at check in. What kind of 4 star lodge has no card facilities? After asking simple questions that anyone would ask when lodging anywhere, we were left a voicenote to say that they don't want us as guests. Very rude and seems they are not playing by the book. This all the day before check in.

We took an escape for our Anniversary to Aquanzi - preferring a place close by. What a surprise we got on the quality of the experience. Aquanzi welcomes you with open arms like a long lost friend and you immediately feel the city stress dropping off you when you walk in. Everything is exactly the way it should be to make you feel relaxed and important, and we had the most delightful experience in a long time. A big Thank You to all the staff.

It is a beautiful place . Some minor points like it take long time for hot water to come which they can fix it. Placing a big TV will be nice with the permanent provision for international power plugs. Other the place is very beautiful and services is good.

Aquanzi Lodge is always the first choice for a perfect couple's getaway. It has a beautiful beach pool, and the rooms have everything you need. I would highly recommend Aquanzi Lodge to those who want privacy and alone time away from the rat race. Rooms are perfect in Summer and Winter as they have thatched roofs with fans and also underfloor heating. The attention to detail and layout makes each room unique and special.

It was a great place to visit, quiet, beautiful surroundings. A place where one wouldnt think it's in Johannesburg 😊. Friendly staff, pools were clean.

I would suggest supplementary fee to be inclusive in the accommodation fee for self catering, or a breakage fee can be charged, if the lodges fear is to replace cutlery time and again.

Such a beautiful, romantic getaway which was only 25 minutes away! The service, decor and food was divine! A chandelier above an iconic bath tub, rich curtains, fluffiest pillows and bedding and the theme of the rondavaal was spectacular - what more can u ask for? Friendly staff and excellent customer service! I highly recommend Aquanzi to anyone!
