I had bought this weekend away for my dads birthday, he absolutely loved the peace. He said it feels like you are miles away from the city and in the bush somewhere. They were able to braai and explore their surroundings. Definitely a place to visit again.

A hidden gem just outside of Fourways. The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. The rooms are beautifully decorated and well maintained. The pool and sandy beach gave you the feeling you were on a tropical holiday!

This Beauty can be found in the middle of the Beast of the city of Fourways. Great service and beautiful accommodation will make you feel like you are on a breakaway miles away from any civilization, whilst really only being a stone throw away.

Thank you for the 10/0 review, we are pleased you enjoyed the relaxing environment at Aquanzi Lodge. Regarding the breakfast, we do not include this in our rates as many guests do not wish to have breakfast and might want to book the chalet for self-catering. We do have a solar-heated pool which in winter unfortunately does not get enough... More
