Akademie Street is the best hotel we have stayed in locally. It is pure luxury and the staff are amazing! It is beautiful and a great option for a honeymoon couple. The attention to detail is on a level I have never seen and guests comfort comes first.Just book and experience it for yourself!

My fourth stay at Akademie Street was in their Uitsig suite, which is located upstairs and has wonderful views of the surrounding mountains from both the front door, the bathtub, and the private balcony (complete with wood-fried hot tub) at the back. I think this may be my favourite room! It only has access to the main pool and not an additional more private pool (like the 3 cottages on the property) but in these cooler months, that suited me just fine. A bathtub and wood-fired hot tub were all I needed. Every suite has a fireplace too. On food: I went out for dinner on the first night (to Protégé which is in walking distance) but loved my room so much that I decided to stay in on the second and enjoyed some takeaway in bed while watching TV before having a long bath.

What a place , it has been our list for quite some time and we finally managed to spend 2 nights. It exceeded the hype and more importantly our expectations, what a magical place. The level of detail and brilliant service and amazing staff made this an experience to remember. The rooms where incredible , highlights being the comfy beds and instagrammable baths . Every corner of this place was carefully curated to make an unforgettable experience . Well done on magical and truly romantic place , we will be back.

I am not even sure where to begin to describe the fine attention to detail at Akademie. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome and special. Declan and his team cater to your every need and we were truly spoiled throughout our stay. I will start with our room. After being shown to our room in the main house, we noticed there was a smart phone plugged in next to the bed. We thought perhaps the person who made up our room had left it by accident, so we went to return it to Declan. As it turns out, the phone is provided to guests for their use during their stay and is pre-programmed with numbers that guests might want/need. What an incredibly thoughtful gesture for international travelers who might not have a South African SIM card! The room is
