The word Alkira is from the indigenous word meaning “sky”, and the many patios and terraces of Alkira ensure that guests stay connected to the fresh air that surrounds us.
The high ceilings and large windows frame and accentuate the incredible sweeping views across the rolling hills of unique fynbos to the mountains and forests, the Knysna lakes and rivers, the whale sanctuary, endangered butterfly sanctuary, pristine white sand beaches and the endless horizon beyond.
Explore Alkira Lodge and find your corner. Take tea in one of our shady outdoor lounge areas, or relax with your holiday read at the sofas by the pool.
Guests are welcome to take a scenic stroll and view our unique plants up close or enjoy their fragrant aroma from the comfort of the terraces.
Patios and Terraces
Take front-row seats to enjoy every drama taking place in the skies that surround Alkira from sunrise to sunset and into the starry night.
"The patio is a space to meet, to stop and to enjoy"
Swim, Jacuzzi, Sunbathe
The pool and Jacuzzi decks are perched at the edge of nature with views across the lake to the twinkling lights of the town below and the mountains beyond. The gentle sound of water spilling over the rimflow. The blue sky mirrored in the waters of the pool. The air fragrant with fynbos in the African heat. This is a place to choose your lounger and languish in the African sunshine, relax in the Jacuzzi or cool off in the pool overlooking the views.
