Situated near the famous Knysna Heads on Bollard Bay, Leisure Isle Boutique Lodge is the perfect destination for those who like to enjoy nature, coupled with the comfort of world-class sophistication and hospitality. Billed as a retreat, guests can enjoy waking up to the exotic cacophony of the dawn chorus coupled with the lapping waters of Knysna Lagoon. The lodge is nestled on Leisure Isle, a small island in the middle of the exquisitely beautiful Knysna Lagoon, which is accessed from the mainland by a narrow causeway. Guests here experience a sense of total escapism amongst the absolute tranquillity despite being so close to the delightful hustle and bustle of Knysna.
Offering the ultimate in relaxation, guests at the Leisure Isle Boutique Lodge can start their day with an al fresco breakfast overlooking the lagoon, or take a stroll around the island. Summer afternoons can be spent lounging on pristine beaches or taking a dip in the perfectly clear waters of the lagoon before returning to the lodge for a delicious lunch on the viewing deck.
Nature lovers will enjoy spotting the various species of birdlife that inhabit the island, which also has its own nature reserve. Whereas those who prefer to mill around the shops or watch the world go by from a small café can take a short trip into Knysna in just a matter of minutes.
The lodge offers 11 beautifully appointed suites or double rooms, each individually decorated and enjoying splendid views of either the lagoon or the lodge’s garden. While fantastically spacious, the rooms are cozy and intimate, offering the perfect haven for a romantic getaway or long weekend. The hosts endeavor to offer a personal touch so that guests leave feeling pampered and thoroughly spoiled.
Guests can enjoy the lodge’s eco-friendly pool, or take a mountain bike ride around the island. More active patrons may wish to try their hand at paddle boarding or windsurfing in the lagoon, while others might prefer just to throw in a line and see what happens…
