4.8 Sustainability Rating

Hover above the clouds and beautiful Knysna scenery at this stunning lodge

Situated above the Garden Route town of Knysna, Alkira Lodge is in the ideal position to appreciate plentiful birdlife, endangered butterflies, stunning fynbos, and some elusive antelope species. By combining wood and stone elements with other natural textures, a modern design blends well into the surroundings with large windows that allow guests to appreciate the incredible views. Spend time in the library and TV room or the slow lounge — a versatile space that opens up to an internal courtyard. Get a drink at the bar or visit the cellar to select a delectable South African wine. Then, choose the perfect spot to relax in, like the infinity pool, the hot tub jacuzzi, or a sofa next to the fireplace.
