This was my third stay at Emily Moon, which is close to flawless as an all-round treat of a place. My first stay was a Romantic Weekend with my hubby, and the next two have been alone on business. The Winter Special makes Emily Moon accessible to me as a business stop-over. This week the weather was freezing but the...

The weather never played its part but is certainly no fault of this fine establishment. The rooms are 5 star and the views of the Bitou wetland spectacular. The food is the big deal. I would rate the restaurant as one of the best in the country. !! Looking forward to my next visit.

We had a great stay at Emily- The accommodation, the food and the ambiance were special. The only disappointment for us was that, despite us advising at the time of booking that we would be there to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary and requesting a room with a nice view over the river, we ended up in one of the...

Great place to relax and take it easy. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and serves a limited, but great quality dishes. The fireplace is a wonderful touch, especially as we spent a winters night with Emily Moon.

Emily moon was EXACTLY like the pictures! From the eclectic decor and luxury rooms to the incredible views we really felt spoilt from start to finish.

A beautiful place in a gorgeous location. Our room was very well appointed with fireplace, balcony, and a bath with exquisite view. The decor throughout is quirky and interesting. A pool for summer use and canoes to enjoy the Bitou River on the property. Breakfast was included with good cooked options. Dinner was very good in the main restaurant -...

We came back to Plett and Emily Moon after a break of 3 years for a winter break, and were pleasantly surprised once again at the great weather, and the change Alex and his team have made to the overall EM experience. His attentive, yet respectful manner, made you feel at ease, and his rapport with his staff, showed their...
