What a wonderful start to a honeymoon, spent 2 amazing days and planning an anniversary stay - everyone is so friendly and on the ball with service and the food was fantastic! Only issue, the dirt road to get there... 12/10

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.

Aquanzi is amazing, I had planned a very busy two days but once we got to Aquanzi lodge the plans changed, it was so peaceful and tranquil there, that we just stayed there instead of doing what I had planned and it turned out to be an amazing weekend.

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...

it is about relaxing place. Received great service from Thando. When she heard that we got married the Friday she actually made it special. The service was excellent. The only thing in winter not much to do so will suggest maybe to get like putt-putt or other entertainment, but maybe with MonteCasino around also not a big problem

We stayed here only one night and it took us half a day to find the place! It's on a private estate set in a very exclusive gated community, where there are several horse farms and very, very large gated mansions within this gated community. The entire complex was enclosed within a solid brick wall with electrified fences, which looked...

I am sorry to hear you felt unattended to as this is not our aim. The unit does have underfloor heating but this is not instant and as your booking was received a few hour prior to your arrival, it was not pre-heated. We attempted to speak to you by knocking on your chalet door but you seemed busy with...

A great place to get away and relax for a few days. The rooms are spacious and clean, and well decorated, and the Lodge facilities and gardens are ideal for relaxing and recharging your batteries. The Lodge is also well situated and close to a number of ammenities.
