Emily Moon River Lodge


10 bedroom Guest House /Bed and Breakfast in Plettenberg Bay from R1,500 per person sharing
Where Luxury, Peace & Fine Dining Meet

Emily Moon River Lodge is an experience in itself, a haven found on the outskirts of Plettenberg Bay.

Set on the Southern Bank of the Bitou River, this 4 * rated Bed & Breakfast offers fantastic views of the surrounding wetlands, winding river and distant mountains. This is where luxury and peace meet…

The owner, being an avid art collector, has created a masterpiece with Emily Moon. Both communal and private spaces are filled with unique pieces, collected from travels around the globe. One might term the décor as chic African contemporary, most impressive and interesting indeed.

Each lodge/unit is separate, lending to an intimate, exclusive stay in the serenity of nature. Emily Moon is ideal for honeymoon and other couples, also accommodating families and friends travelling together.

Their award-winning on-site restaurant is open to the public and boasts a separate sushi bar, all with views.
