Travellers' Choice
ALKANTMOOI PRIVATE NATURE RESERVE Beauty in every direction. On the hill-top at Alkantmooi Private Nature Reserve you will find yourself surrounded by some of nature’s most exquisite visual displays. The calm turquois of the Indian Ocean seamlessly merges into the green and gold of lush indigenous forests and pristine fynbos that covers the blue-grey mountains, capped by the magnificent African sky. Guiding your eyes through this collage of never-ending vistas is the Keurbooms River. At Alkantmooi you are on top of the world with beauty in every direction, or alkantmooi in Afrikaans. Alkantmooi Private Nature Reserve is situated in the Keurbooms River Valley close to Plettenberg Bay. Originally named Bahia Formosa, or the Beautiful Bay, by Portuguese explorer Manuel de Perestrelo, Plettenberg Bay is on South Africa’s world-renowned Garden Route. Alkantmooi is a short 6 km drive from Plettenberg Bay’s well-developed holiday infrastructure.

This was our second visit to Alkantmooi - that says it all - the hilltop location is excellent - the quality of the accommodation first class - but above all such smashing people. Located outside of Plett but close enough to get to restaurants and stores for food

My mum, sister and I, stayed at Alkantmooi for one night as one of our stops on our road trip. What an amazing place! The facilities are excellent and beautifully decorated. We woke up to birdsong and had breakfast (delicious muffins, yoghurt, juice, fruit, etc) which was prepared for us as a welcome gift, on the deck, overlooking the valley. We wished we could stay longer to have a dip in the infinity pool and will defnitely go there again if we are in the same area - as loads to do and easy access to main tourist attractions. We visited Monkeyworld, Birds of Eden and the elephants at Knysna, which were all in easy reach. Peaceful environment, friendly and helpful hosts (we arrived later as planned, without any problem), and easy access into and around our place, for our 80 year old mother 🙂

My husband and I love this getaway in Plettenberg bay, we make a point of it to come at least once a year! Winter or Summer its always magical, the views and the attention to detail in every unit are just perfect. The new addition of the infinity pool was a definite surprise and such a win for this already perfect accommodation. Romantic couples get away or a family holiday we would 10/10 recommend spending your time here and taking in all this property has to offer. Thanks for your amazing service and friendly welcome every time we come. The complimentary champagne and breakfast was a special treat for our anniversary weekend this time! Thank you

The location is perfect for travellers seeking tranquility yet close enough to town and all amenities. Everything about this nature reserve is great, only downfall is the low quality details and plastic use inside the accomodation.

Beautiful hotel with amazing views over the Keurbooms River! The drive up is always a little adventure but it is rewarded with a lovely, spacious room with a kitchenette (we very much enjoyed doing our own breakfast for once during our SA travels) and a big terrace with sunset views of the coast and the town of Plettenberg Bay. Also Ne-Liz, the manager, was very friendly and even let us check in a little early as the room happened to be already cleaned.

A peaceful and tranquil accommodation. The apartments are so well decorated and clean. Absolutely lovely place for a couple’s getaway. Only complaint is the size of the road leading up to the accommodation.

We had a wonderful stay at Alkantmooi. We were booked into one of the Keurkloof Units overlooking the forest and mountains, and sipping on a glass of wine and watching the sun set over the hilltops was just what we needed. The rooms are well-equipped, and we received a little complimentary breakfast snack of muffins with cheese and jam. The unit is incredibly spacious, and the bed is huge. Having a bath while looking out across the forest was absolute bliss.
