Had the most INCREDIBLE weekend at Emily Moon. Even with our 2am check in, someone was ready to greet us and show us to our lovely chalet. The accommodation & views are OUTSTANDING, and the FOOD! Incredible. We especially loved our cosy weekend by the fireplace, and loved that we had all we need to keep the fire going the... More

It's all been said before and I can only re- iterate. From the moment we arrived to the sad moment we had to leave, our experience @ Emily Moon was outstanding. The room, the view, the ambience, the staff, the food, all made our 3 days break away, one which we shall remember. Alex and his team work extremely hard... More

We (three couples) booked for a friend's birthday dinner and decided to stay the night. What a great "aftertaste" it left :) The staff was super friendly and helpful, the venue was delightful and romantic, the food was excellent and the cottages inviting and warm (with fireplace). I especially appreciated the underfloor heating in the bathroom and the luxurious and... More

Beautiful room with wonderful views. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant was outstanding. We canoed along the river in the morning which was magical. This stay was one of the highlights of our holiday..

We love our yearly stay at Emily moon. Great Location, great food and staff. Even though its Winter time, we had a stunningly comfortable stay as usual. Enjoyed a great canoe paddle this time, the Fish Eagles were a special touch!

What an amazing place! My husband and I stayed in the honeymoon suite for a few days in July and it was absolutely fantastic. Great weather, great service, great rooms, great food, great wine - what more could you ask for?! The fireplace in our room was our highlight. And it was even better when the turn down service included... More

What a surprise to find such a delightful place just outside of Plett and seemingly deep in the country! We loved our room; particularly because of the attention to detail. Staff were also great. Décor amazing

Six of us stayed here, in three different rooms and all three were absolutely stunning. The lodge is in a beautiful area and is very quiet and private with lovely views over the river. We took canoes (available for free from the lodge) out onto the river and it was lovely to paddle and see the surrounding areas. The service... More
