About Alkantmooi

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. Although Alkantmooi is a short 6 km drive from Plettenberg Bay’s well-developed holiday infrastructure, the private nature reserve is secluded enough to provide nature lovers with the peace and quiet necessary to appreciate the splendour.


For those who’ve just celebrated their most beautiful day, Alkantmooi offers the perfect setting for a breathtaking honeymoon. Start your journey together with lifelong memories of beauty in every direction. A romantic holiday at Alkantmooi offers you complete privacy combined with the most idyllic scenery – an experience you will treasure forever.


Alkantmooi’s four-star accommodation consists of seven fully-equipped, self-catering luxury apartments with separate entrances. Four units boast a spectacular sea view, while three units face the beautiful Tsitsikamma forest.  Easily accessible from the private nature reserve is an array of outdoor activities made possible by Alkantmooi’s close proximity to the ocean, river, forests and mountains. The area boasts an abundance of bird and animal life, including the adjacent Keurbooms River Nature Reserve.

What our loyal patrons have to say:
“Heaven on earth!!”

What a wonderful stay! We were a party of 4, and stayed over on the Sunday night after our husbands drove the Karoo to Coast mountain bike race. We could have not asked for a better place to rest after an eventful day. The apartment itself is wonderfully equipped with everything you need, and extra! The hosts, Magdeld and her husband, makes you feel so welcome and spoils you with a platter of biscuits, cheese, yoghurt and farm fresh apples when you arrive! The view from the veranda is spectacular and we could not get enough of it. We had dinner and breakfast on the veranda to soak up as much of the view as possible! The décor in the unit is beautiful and we slept like a dream in the very comfortable beds. Thank you so much for a much needed rest. We will definitely be back! Plain Jane, Cape Town
