Knysna – The Lofts Boutique Hotel

The Lofts Boutique Hotel is located on Thesen Island, an award-winning Blue Flag marina in the heart of Knysna, which remains one of the Garden Route’s favourite destinations. Thesen Island consists of 19 man-made islands, interconnected by charming bridges that gracefully span over the pristine waterways. The islands are a vibrant hotspot that provides visitors from around the world with an abundance of shopping and dining options, as well as easy access to a variety of activities like kayaking (free access from the hotel), taking the paddle cruiser to Featherbed Nature reserve, or exploring the surrounding natural beauty. Once the site of an industrial boatbuilding shed, The Lofts seamlessly blends history with contemporary design. Located inside the renovated Boatshed, the hotel honours the building’s maritime legacy by preserving elements of its nautical allure. The hotel was born after Dr Chris Mulder and his wife Pat began developing Thesen Island. Pat envisioned creating The Lofts and, years later, this lagoon-side hotel is still proudly family-owned and operated. The hotel features beautifully appointed rooms and apartments, each designed with your comfort in mind. With luxurious bedding, plush furnishings and all the modern amenities you need. A full backup generator during load shedding and of course, a beautiful swimming pool to cool off in. And finally, The Lofts Boutique Hotel offers you the treat of breathtaking sunset views overlooking the Lagoon.
