Surprise breakaway to mountain retreat
We stayed one night in the cottage at Acra Retreat in November 2016. The cottage is spacious, easily big enough for a small family and has self catering facilities. Dinner and breakfast were delicious and beautifully presented and the service was excellent. The resort is well situated, with views across the valley and Waterval Boven. Acra Retreat is a perfect stopover for people travelling to the Kruger National Park or looking for a quick escape from the city. For those looking to do day excursions, expect a few hours driving to most attractions. The last few kilometers of the drive to Acra are poorly maintained, but the destination makes it worth it.

Acra still a good option for transit to Kruger
We had stayed at Acra Mountain Retreat 2 years ago and enjoyed our stay on that occasion. Not much had changed since then, except that the maintenance of the property and gardens had not been kept to the same high standard we experienced previously. The room we were given was accessed through the toilet/bathroom which was rather odd, but it was spacious and comfortable. The dinner (you need to pre-book 24 hours in advance) was excellent and the choice of wines interesting and varied. The bar area is very relaxed and cosy, and you are made to feel very much at home by Holger and Norma, the owners. Breakfast was fairly basic, but adequate, taken on the veranda with great views of the surrounding bush. Overall, the guest house is good, and benefits from being out of town, so its peaceful. We would stay again if passing through Waterval Boven.

Warm/welcoming place
This was my birthday weekend away with hubby and Acra retreat staff made it an unforgettable one. From the 1st day we arrived, we just felt at home, the staff, the place on its own is very welcoming. No hustles, great food and a beautiful, peaceful place overall. We are definitely coming back soon!
