Hotel Overview

Situated at the tip of picturesque Thesen Island, The Lofts Boutique Hotel offers uniquely themed accommodation and an outdoor splash pool overlooking the Knysna Lagoon. Free private, covered parking is available on site.

Once the site of an industrial boat-building shed, The Lofts Boutique Hotel marries history and modern design and offers contemporary designed rooms, decorated with exposed wooden beams. Some rooms have exquisite views of the Knysna Lagoon (suites) others have large sunny private balconies (standard double room) or self-catering facilities (apartments). All the rooms are equipped with 4-star amenities including satellite TV, tea/coffee maker and extra-long beds.

A breakfast voucher for a choice of 2 restaurants (including famous bakery, Ile de pain) is included for our standard double room & lagoon suites. A large atrium with comfortable lounge areas and a service bar is open for guests to relax, work, eat & play. This area opens up onto the splash pool & terrace with a beautiful view of the Knysna lagoon and surrounding green hills.

At Le Spa Tranquill, guests can enjoy treatments ranging from shower scrubs to hot stone therapy. The pool deck is almost all surrounded by the lagoon and offers a great way of digesting a day of spa treatments.

Knysna Golf Club is less than 15 minutes of driving from the hotel. Thesen Harbour Town & the Knysna Waterfront with its bars and restaurants are within 1 km.

Please Note: Due to our hotels 'boutique nature', each room has a unique layout & décor & not all rooms have lagoon views - to book a room with a lagoon view please select the 'suite'
