“Lovely hotel in vineyard setting.”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

This is a really good location for visiting the spectacular wine region in Stellenbosch. We stayed here early February and so glad we did. The rooms are contemporary spacious and spotlessly clean. The bathrooms similarly large and modern with every facility on hand. Our patio/terrace overlooked the vineyards and mountains in the distance which were amazing we especially liked the fact we had our own loungers and chilled out on them after a day touring the area.. The restaurant is quite beautifully decorated and the food excellent. Breakfast was a buffet with everything you would need to start your day, with cooked available should you so wish. There is a wine tasting room at the Asara where we enjoyed a complimentary glass or two of our favourite tipple. If you have time to swim there is a lovely pool area too. All in all it was perfect for our visit.

Room Tip: I don't think there is a room without a lovely view so I wouldn't worry about a particular r...

After a 5 nights in capetown we came to Asara wine Estate from the welcome at the gate and the impressive drive through the vineyards,everything exceeding my expectations. It is such a beautiful, relaxing and tranquil resort, with every amentiy and luxury, you do not need to leave. I only wish we had planned to stay longer.

The restaurant served the best food (and wine) I experienced throughout my 2 weeks in South Africa. Breakfast has an amazing selection and even the vineyard tasting was excellent, with a right balance between the modern (and very flash) wineries that seem to overwhelm Stellenbosch (those owned by golfers,pair chocolate and specialise in sparkling) and the more real functional vineyards where you can get to the roots of the business and learn a little.

Room Tip: I recommend rooms overlooking the water lodge further from the main buildings

Stayed for 10 days during a Cape winelands tour. The hotel is superbly located and offers outstanding service. The views from the hotel are stunning , the facilities very good and staff excellent with nothing too much trouble. Very good breakfast. Very comfortable spacious rooms and wifi throughout .. Would certainly recommend for any visiting the Cape.

We had an outstanding visit for one week, excellent room with views across the vineyards to the mountains. Nothing was too much trouble for any member of staff. Quite outstanding in every way. The restaurant food was delicious at every meal we had.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms in the blocks have even better views.

This hotel had a great pool, a lake, and great restaurants. After spending some time in Cape Town, we came to Stellenbosch for a few days. The only downside to this hotel is that it is outside of Stellenbosch, so if you want to spend some time in Stellenbosch, then you will need a car to get there. We had a huge excellent room that had a nice patio for relaxing, overlooking the lake. We ate dinner at the restaurant onsite and had an excellent meal. You have everything you need onsite - wine, lake, pool, restaurants, baked goods, and a snack shop.

Having stayed last year was worried it would not live up to our memories - but it surpassed them. Amazing setting, beautiful rooms, fantastic food and the staff could not do enough to make our stay more comfortable and enjoyable. The only small negative is that wi-fi connection is not good (not their fault) - but then we were there to relax and that is exactly what we did.

Room Tip: Ask for views of lake and wine farm

Stayed at Asara again and we weren't disappointed. The rooms are beautiful, the setting is tranquil and the restaurant is terrific. The breakfasts are the best we have ever had in South Africa. Nothing bad to say about it.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms are good, but overlooking the dam is the best view
