Where the views encompass a wetland, winding river and distant mountains...
Where luxury and peace are to be found in a sweeping river valley.
Where the views encompass a wetland, winding river and distant mountains and where the call of the Fish Eagle will forever remind you of the vast skies of Africa . Embracing the southern bank of the Bitou River in Plettenberg Bay, Emily Moon River Lodge is a small, exclusive Lodge.
Our restaurant Emily’s seats a maximum of 100 guests with a dance floor and the deck area around the pool is ideal for cocktails and canapés before the wedding reception. Our chef extraordinaire Andrew will discuss and advise on menus which can be either plated or served on platters, a three course meal starting at R250 per head depending on your choice of food. Long baronial tables set with cream rose damask, white crockery, long stemmed glasses and an eclectic mix of chairs makes for an elegant and festive gathering.
We can accommodate up to 60 around the pool for the service but for a larger number there are churches of every denomination in the village a mere few km’s away. Of course we have our magnificent beaches for that seaside service. Half the pool can be covered for extra seating or a dance floor.
Our 10 beautiful lodges each decorated in their own individual style sleeping 20, two being family room’s with four beds, is where the bridal party spend the night of the wedding, all with spectacular views or private garden areas completely private and steeped in luxury.

A never to be forgotten day one you will cherish for a lifetime.
