Stunning room with a mountain & see view. Great breakfast with very friendly smiles in the morning. Enjoyed the swimming pool with a "cold one" . Close to a shop and a few restaurants, walking distance from the beach aswell.

On the 29th April my hubby and I decided to book at Akanans for a little weekend away. Firstly the host and hostess, Annamarie and Dowe, You guys were so welcoming....Subash and I felt so at home and your services were 100% on point. I really enjoyed our braai night....Look forward to returning to your ever so warm and relaxing cottage...Thank you for your kind services......rooms were very neat and cosy

Room Tip: Choose a bigger room on availability... We booked last minute as all other rooms were booked out...

Akanan is a very professionally run establishment, and very Family friendly.
The breakfasts are excellent and well prepared, the roooms are spotless and very tastefully decorated as is the rest of the establishment. A home from home atmosphere, and an amazing lapa and swimmingpool to chill at as well, we will be back.

This was my second time I had the pleasure of staying in Akanan. You feel at home as soon as you get there and experience the friendly service. I travel down for business and it is really easy to get to and to get out of Akanan, realy a home away from home. Thank you!
