My Favourite Plett Hotel
Absolutely amazing. Lovely rooms overlooking a lagoon with fabulous interior decorating making a really wonderful ambience. Service is excellent and position is good too. This is my second stay (first in the new rooms); I would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful and so comfortable
Emily Moon is just perfect. The rooms are so comfortably we barely wanted to leave them, particularly the fantastic bathroom and stunning view from each balcony. Nevertheless the restaurant is superb, and all the staff are so friendly - we felt so at home and wished we could have stayed longer.

A Small piece of heaven
“To travel hopefully is better than to arrive” so the saying goes. But our arrival at Emily Moons blew this theory out of the water! From the attractive entrance we knew we had chosen somewhere special and the warm welcome at Reception confirmed this. We were shown to our river lodge which was spacious,beautifully furnished and luxurious with so many thoughtful touches that it’s hard to list them all. Candles, pool/beach towels in a basket we could take with us on a day out, umbrellas, a torch, and plentiful supplies in the bathroom as well as fresh milk in the fridge, replenished daily. Oh, and the view! The lodges have been cleverly positioned so none are overlooked. From your balcony deck The Bijou river winds seaward providing ever changing bird life with each tide. So that’s the accommodation. Now to the food. Breakfast is two fold and plentiful. You can order a selection of cooked breakfasts and also there is a bountiful buffet full of every type of fruit, cereal, fresh bread, jam, muffins, mini quiche to suit all tastes. As a guest you are automatically reserved an evening table at Emily’s restaurant. If you wish to dine elsewhere or in Simon’s bar above, where they serve tasty wood fired pizzas, they will release your table for resale. The Food is top notch and the staff are fantastic. We loved every minute of our stay here. Thoroughly recommend.
