Review by: Paul Naidoo & friends
My first time at the lodge, I must say that I was very impressed with the set up.
The high level of professionalism, and the warm spirit of your staff, made us feel very comfortable and stress free amidst our tight schedule over the weekend.
We loved the African theme and the natural sceneries that give this place such an awesome abode filled with tranquillity and peace that every individual must experience at some point in his life.
I will recommend this place to friends and family and I am sure to visit again in the future.

An evening away to celebrate our 8th year Wedding anniversary. Aquanzi lodge decorated our room romantically and made us feel extremely special upon arrival. The Luxurious chalet was exquisite, the lodge was superb! Just a pity that we were unable to stay for the breakfast...Perhaps next time!!! We will most definitely be back for another breakaway... Thank you soooo much!

To whom it may concern
Our stay at Aquanzi lodge was fantastic. Your staff are excellent. I cannot compliment you guys enough on the wonderful stay we had. Breakfast was amazing, our rooms were clean at all times. Braai facilities were made available to us on request even though we opted for the B&B option, this was really fantastic service. Because of the sandy road, my car was quiet dirty and on the day of leaving my car was even washed! I actually couldn’t believe it.
I definitely look forward for to our next stay at Aquanzi lodge.

Many thanks for your e-mail below.
Aquanzi lodge is beautiful!!! And I will recommend it to everyone I know! One of the very few places that I have experienced the place to be more breathtaking than the photo's.
The room was fabulous, the decorations so romantic it smelled great. The host was fantastic and the swimming pool with the candles at night- gorgeous.

We really enjoyed our stay, it was a tranquil environment. Everything that was asked for was in place by the time we arrived, Thank you. Ashley was really friendly and informed us of the kiosk should we need anything. The only thing that was missing was dish clothes for the self-catering option. I will do a stay there soon, Thank you for the friendliness :-) And it was a weekend worth staying. Keep up the great work!

Review by: Leonelle Olivier
WOW!!!! Where to begin... We needed a break away for our 6th wedding Anniversary and decided to go to Aquanzi Lodge... It is absolutely amazing! Its quiet, more nature than city (even though it is situated in Fourways) and it is just a lodge out of a story book. Thank you for giving us the best service and smile at all times and making our anniversary celebration the best!!! WE WILL SEE YOU SOON AGAIN!!!!

It was a lovely 2 days get-away with my fiance and I would like to thank management for beautifully designed chalet (and rose pedals!) and for their smiles. It is such a special place to have a quiet time with your loved ones. We will definitely make Aquanzi Get-away a regular thing!
Review by: Luke and Tanya
What a beautiful place! We were amazed at the quality finishes in our room and by the impeccable service. Will most definitely return for another visit.
Review by: Mathyse Haasbroek
I have been around looking for romantic getaways for a while now and every time a beautiful picture gets painted but when we get there the service lacks as well as the accommodation. I found Aquanzi lodge as I was looking around and investigating romantic places - I even google'd the address as well as visit their website to make sure I was getting what I anticipated to get. But my expectations was blown away when we arrived - it was and is and I'm sure, will be the best place to visit EVER!!! It is so peaceful and quite, you feel actually rested and rejuvenated after spending only one day there. I will definitely go back to Aquanzi Lodge - The service is excellent, the staff are friendly, it is clean and neat all day long! We really had the best time ever at Aquanzi. You guys will definitely see us again!! Keep up the good work.

Review by: Nicole
Aquanzi Lodge offers luxury comparable with top hotels, and adds personal attentive service and the serenity of the countryside. It was a surprise to find this haven with a bush lodge feel, so close to the city! The conference facilities are well equipped and the food delicious. Definitely recommended for any business, conferencing or leisure traveller, wanting something more!
Review by: Thandie Mvuma

Hi Natalie & Margit
Just want to thank you for the lovely stay we had this weekend at your lodge; the facilities are lovely and the chalet was impeccable! One thing that amazed me was how friendly your staff is… It’s is a real pleasure to deal with them, especially the lady that helped in the breakfast room (didn’t catch her name) she deserves a star for her outstanding work!
Thank you very much for decorating the room for us upon our arrival, it made celebrating our 1st anniversary so much more special!
You will definitely bee seeing us again in the near future!
Review by: Sue & Eric Cook
My husband and I stayed here for a week in June whilst he was on business. We stayed in one of the chalets which was beautifully decorated and very well equipped and scrupulously clean. The staff are all extremely polite and friendly but particular mention must go to Barbara, the chef/waitress at breakfast. We looked forward to breakfast every morning, it was presented very well and cooked perfectly. Inside the restaurant/reception area the lodge is beautifully decorated and I can only say that whoever did the interior decorating has a marvellous skill. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. The dirt road is at first a little off putting, but it is not too far from the main road. My only negative grumble is that there should be free wi-fi throughout. The service provided is quite expensive and slow. Thank you also to the gardener for washing our dusty car. We will be back next time we visit Joburg. Thank you Aquanzi Lodge.
Review by: Ilze Botha, United Kingdom

Thank you for a splendid weekend at Aquanzi. The chalets, facilities and staff were fantastic, not forgetting the beautiful scenery you guys have. We'll definitely be back.
Review by: Michelle Lourens, South Africa
This lodge had the best host. I wanted to plan the most special night for my special guy and they went out of their way to give me the most private chalet so we could enjoy an undisturbed romantic picnic. Accommodation was spotless, breakfast was tasteful. I had the best time and didn't want to leave. Thank you so much.
Review by: Anonymous, South Africa

Review by: Cyril and Ingrid Edelson
Dear Margrit and your team,
A very warm 'Thank You' to make our stay so welcome at your beautiful lodge.Everything was of high standard and you have created that unique African bush feeling. You have put personal touch and detail into every aspect of your establishment. I enjoyed the swim in your heated pool every morning at the dive centre. And the beach sand around the other pool creates that very special effect. Thank you for having our son and his two little girls enjoying the breakfast on Saturday morning. We certainly will recommend you to our family and friends.
Review by: Nancy Sidu

I ‘m going to recommend the place to my colleagues. Please say a big Thank you to Lizzy, she has been a good hostess all the way and her friendliness and the smile make that place shine, we really enjoyed our self.
Keep up the good work. You’ll here form me again soon.
Review by: Glenys
Hi there Margit
My hubby and myself were there on Thursday, and I just feel that you and your team deserve a huge thumbs up. You have the most stunning chalets and the surroundings are superb. We found the place so peaceful and comfortable. Your staff are all fantastic from the security to the cleaners as well as your reception lady ( I did not get her name) , she was an absolute pleasure to deal with. We enjoyed our short stay so much
so that we are planning a longer stay in the future and will definitely make your facility our first choice.
Thank you once again, and please relay to your staff that they are fantastic and must keep up the excellent work.

Good Day Management,
I would like to say thank you for a wonderful stay at your establishment this past weekend. It was my first time there and I booked for a special anniversary weekend. I was so amazed at how beautiful it was, how clean, and how friendly your staff are. You have fantastic staff and a wonderful lodge and I will definitely stay there again. Also, I would like to say a special mention to Lizzy and Ubet (sp?), they are both so friendly and very accommodating of clients needs. You have two great staff members who are excellent at what they do… Many thanks again for a wonderful stay and also for the small touches… was really a wonderful stay!
Review by: The Haanen family from Netherlands
This place is truly an oasis of peace en luxury near the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg. The staff is extremely helpful and are instructed very well. Every details is looked after. Excellent value for money. The best place we stayed in with our 2 little children in South Africa. We didn't expect to find such a place around Johannesburg. Stay there, you won't regret it!
Review by: Stefan, Wendy Fletcher & Family
Just a quick note to say thank you for a wonderful time during our stay at your lodge. The surroundings are beautiful and the service of all your staff is impeccable. The facilities and accommodations are great and very clean, and we felt right at home
Your staff are truly an asset to your company – in particular Lizzy and Happy. They made us feel part of the family and definitely earned a place in our hearts (our kids, Cooper, Daniella and Keegan are greatly missing Lizzy and ask about her everyday)! Nothing was ever too much trouble for them and they happily obliged with a smile and friendly face all the time.
We come back to SA every 2-3 years and will definitely be making Aquanzi our home every time we come back.
Thank you again for a wonderful holiday and please pass on our huge thanks and appreciation to Lizzy and Happy.
Review by: Gay Isaacs / Matome Mahlami
I would like you to forward this to your management in acknowledgement of the excellent service I received from you.
We visited the Lodge for the night and you made our stay, one to remember. The Check in was very warm and welcoming, tour of the lodge and facilities was very informative. You organized a shuttle to the store for last minute shopping, we had a late braai and facilities were provided with a smile.
Breakfast was superbly served in a peacefull atmosphere and to top it off, a taxi service was arranged for us! We are really impressed with your friendly and professional attitude. Your service is exceptional and I will definitely be referring my clients to your capable business.

Review by: Donaveve Kroats (South Africa)
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Aquanzi, the service provided was a heavenly experience, friendly staff who really take pride in what they do and always willing to go the extra mile... Aquanzi offers you everything you need to have the "home away from home experience"... Five star rated cleanliness, scenery for the wild at heart and tranquillity for those in need of unwinding... I would really recommend Aquanzi to anybody in need of a getaway or for a simple day-to-day accommodation!
Review by: Dinolene (South Africa)
Just want to let you guys know that we had a great stay, I would say that it is 5 star accommodation and would recommend Aquanzi Lodge to anyone anytimeLook forward to hearing from you.
Dr van Rensburg (South Africa)
Just a thank you for a lovely stay on Monday and Tuesday. The children enjoyed the swimming and we loved the privacy and attention to small detail.
The staff were excellent and the letter on our bed with the chocolates are detail that makes you stand out from the crowd.
God bless and we will see you soon.
Review by: Deon van den Berg (South Africa)
Just a quick e-mail to say what a wonderful time we had. Although I’ve been at the pool many times before, this was the first time that I actually stayed over. I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised when I entered the bungalow. From the outside it appears plain, but WOW, you guys have made it stunning inside. It was our 6 month wedding anniversary on Friday, so the romantic setting was perfect.
We will definitely be back and have already spread the word about your fantastic accommodation.
