Guests can choose to stay in one of the 6 private rooms at Alkira lodge or for those seeking absolute privacy or for a small group or family travelling together, ‘Shufflers’ the Owners Villa @ Alkira sleeps up to 6 in a fully equipped, exclusive use luxury Villa.
Alkira and Shufflers Villa have indoor and outdoor dining options, indoor and outdoor lounge spaces and spacious tanning decks. The infinity pool and hot tub jacuzzi provide options to relax, unwind and enjoy the sounds of silence and warm sunshine surrounded by nature’s beauty.

Absolutely amazing experience! Sam is an excellent hostess. The place is incredible..My family and I felt like we had gone to the South of France and totally loved the entire experience. The rooms are absolutely incredible and so are the views of the whole town.
Superb. 5 out of 5
