A five star experience from arrival to departure. Me and my wife chose Asara to stay for the final few nights during out Honeymoon to explore Cape Town and the surrounding areas and we couldn't have found a better place to stay. We had a deluxe room which was massive, exceptionally well decorated and featured simply stunning views with our...

My pal and I go there almost every other week - we live local and do wine tasting and lunch at the Sansibar.... Until now, absolute unbelievable value for local and tourists alike... However, today at lunch - my ceaser salad (which I previously had with chicken) was way more expensive than ever (without chicken).... You are still the best...

I am in the tourism industry, conducting motorcycle tours in South Africa. I have started my dealings with Asara in August 2014, when I made my first group booking for Nov 2015. All went well with the booking, so I booked another 4 dates with them. For my March 2016 booking, I booked 28 rooms in Nov 2014. I also...

to be provisionally booked, our Reservations office confirmed that they would be provisionally booked. The guest questioned the rate increase for 2016 and 2017 bookings and requested a meeting to discuss this, we obliged and in February 2015 a Senior Manager met with him to discuss the issues he had with the rate increase. He asked that we please hold...

We visited Asara as day visitors on a previous visit to SA and fell in love with the place. Was looking forward to returning to spend a few nights there. Thank you for the upgrade, but even with the upgraded room it didn't live up to expectations. The room is a wonderful design = good view of lake and mountains...

First visit to Stellenbosch and to South Africa - loved the views, room, wine, food and the service at Asara - they could not do enough for us. Decent swimming pool too. This place is run with great attention to detail. Wine tasting on your doorstep too is no bad thing. Loved the Asara Cape Fusion red. Very well placed...

If you do you want to leave! Rooms big and well designed bathrooms, bigger than most hotel rooms! Open the doors and look over the lake the vineyards and then mountains, simply stunning. The bar has a real chilled vibe and the food is excellent. The main restaurant is more formal but still chilled and again excellent food. Obviously the...

This was my first visit to Asara. We were welcomed with some of the estate's great wines and shown to our rooms, overlooking a lovely courtyard. Breakfast the next morning was a lazy affair, with a great choice of continental and egg breakfast. Too soon it was time to go.

We are wrapping up a way too short stay at Asara. The wine estate is unbelievably gorgeous, with the vineyard being set against a man made lake and the mountains behind. The hotel upgraded us to a standard room, which has a balcony overlooking the vineyard. The rooms are huge and modern, with fantastic bathrooms. If I lived local, this...

A lovely hotel, picturesque in its surroundings with fantastic views over the Stellenbosch countryside. Nice pool, great running / walking routes around the wines, fun wine tasting. Would definitely recommend the horse riding we did at franschoek (paradise stables). If there is a negative, the wifi is awful - but that's what you expect in SA.
