Outdoor Living Areas

The word Alkira is from the indigenous word meaning “sky” – from the getgo Alkira is about connecting to the natural beauty that surrounds us!

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.Take a front-row seat and enjoy Nature’s drama as it unfolds from sunrise to sunset and into the starry night.

Patios and terraces and various lounge areas allow you to choose a spot in the shade or to work on your tan. The pool and Jacuzzi decks are perched at the edge of nature and the perfume of the surrounding fynbos. This is a place to languish in the African sunshine, relax in the Jacuzzi hot tub or cool off in the pool overlooking the views. Braais (bbq) and a woodfired pizza oven allow cooking to take place outdoors with dining at big family tables overlooking the twinkling lights of Knysna. The flat grass garden area beckons for a round of your sport of choice or a round of croquet (we have set for you to use).
