We had a very relaxing stay at Tonquani. Morita and her team takes hospitality and friendliness to the next level. The cottages are well designed. We especially enjoyed the jet bath and the wine & chocolates upon arrival. The pool deck is a must for a relaxing afternoon reading session under the shade. We also enjoyed our full body massages...

This was our first stop on our honeymoon road trip. The cabin we were in (number 11) was amazing. Spacious, luxurious and clean. The staff were absolutely fantastic and went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. Privacy, relaxation, tranquillity, comfort and nature are what this place is about. The only change I would make is that the address...

We, family of two adults and two kids stayed 5 nights at Tonquani. Overall we had a pleasant stay and staff was friendly. But considering the cost and comparing Tonquani to other places (we have now been travelling five months in SA) value does not fit cost and the apparent 5 star rating. The good: Nice quiet green location 2...
