Ashanti Lodge Gardens

Kumasi Cafe
Join us in Ashanti Lodge groovy café bar for some tantalizing cocktails while listening to some soothing tunes, or lie back and relax on our wooden sundeck overlooking the pool and take in the outstanding panoramic views of Table Mountain. The popular weekly pool competition (Tuesday nights) and all the other activities and events that are offered in the Kumasi Cafe make it a central gathering point.

Many a decadent night can be spent here partying with fellow travellers and the local staff - sometimes it just madness! Watch the latest sports action on satellite television or, snack on an ice-cream-covered waffle or a quick milkshake and try the local and regional beers.

Lights meals are available from 7.30am to 10pm and in the morning you can feast on our scrumptiously healthy all-you-can-eat buffet or order a big hearty fry-up. Our menu includes nachos and burgers as well as tasty fresh crisp salads and quick toasties.

Swimming Pool
The sparkling swimming pool is great for those really hot summer days. Book a pool lounger early as they are in great demand or grab a water toy to gently float around the pool while you plan your evening's entertainment. 

Communal Kitchen
For those of you who have to (or want to) cook for yourself because you have spent all your cash, there is a huge fully equipped self-catering kitchen. The hot water is always bubbling here for your complimentary tea and coffee and the huge fridge keeps your groceries cold.

Chill out in a hammock amongst the tranquil surroundings of our front garden that is shaded by many palm trees and watch the squirrels hop around and the lively activity in the birdbath.

There are brilliant barbecue facilities that you are welcome to use at your leisure. During hot summer months we often hold really great barbecues which usually turn into raucous parties.
