Akasha Mountain Retreat

Akasha Mountain Retreat

offers picturesque Cape-Maroc style accommodation in a serene, private setting with spectacular panoramic views over the Langeberg & secluded Duiwenhoks Dam.

Situated just 12km north of Heidelberg & the N2 – an ideal off-grid location in which to ‘disconnect from digital & reconnect with nature.

Day trips within a 70km radius are tailored to clients’ fields of interest and interweave local history, myths & legends with the best that Hessequa has to offer. Furthermore the retreat is solar-powered and fully equipped for self-catering, with a resident chef ‘on call’. Outdoor activities include guided or DIY hikes, horse encounters, mountain biking, farm-dam fishing for kids. Also stargazing, music-making & meditation. Creativity is engendered by beginners’ lessons in music, songwriting, art & photography plus advanced tuition in fingerstyle guitar techniques.
