Asara is a modern luxury purpose built hotel in the middle of a vineyard on a hill overlooking the Stellenbosch valley- and only ten minutes by car from downtown.
We had room 102, a de luxe classic room.It was superbly functional and yet still had charm and character.Our bedroom was large with two arm chairs, a table and plenty of cupboard space all beautifully colour coordinated.We had a spacious well equipped bathroom with separate walk in shower and wc..A large wrap around balcony overlooking the gardens and pool and with the most amazing view across the valley to the mountains.
Every self respecting winery in the valley has a so called gourmet restaurant these days. Asara is no exception.It is called Raphaels and it is no better- but no worse- than most of the others. Some of its desserts are especially worth noting.
But far better value for money is the next door wine bar Sansibar where you can get a Caesar salad and beautifully cooked fish and chips for half the price.
Everything works. Everything is clean.The rooms are great. The staff are helpful and pleasant.Despite being modern the place still has charm.And the views are to die for.
What more could you want? A cheap price? No way Jose.
