The Lofts Boutique Hotel


The Lofts Boutique Hotel is housed in the old Boatshed on Thesen Islands, Knysna. The refurbished building with its architectural design gives The Lofts Boutique Hotel an individuality which is also reflected in the difference in the Luxury Loft Rooms & Self catering apartments’ decor.The unique location of this Boutique Hotel on Thesen Harbour Town sets the tone for a tranquil, revitalising, relaxing and refreshing stay on the island. Driving over the venetian style bridge you are transported to the world of nature, lending an invisible and intangible flavour to your holiday experience at The Lofts Boutique Hotel.

The hotel rooms take one’s breath away with their industrial refurbishment and design. This fresh, smart-casual approach is far from the ordinary, and caters well to every desire.
