STAY IN AFRICA
Each lodge suite has been themed according to a character in the Emily Moon story, featuring rare artefacts and found-items collected from the length and breadth of Africa.
DINING AT EMILY MOON
Emily’s Restaurant is the most exquisite of dining halls. The spirit of Africa is in every archway, every antique table and in the collectors’ items which adorn every nook and cranny. Feast your eyes on Kelims, Samburu spears, sculptures, old photographs, maps, paintings and everything else that breathes the rich textures of Africa. Lunch by the pool or dine by candlelight and remember the experience for the rest of your life.
Simons Bar, located above Emily’s Restaurant, is beautifully designed with vintage motorboat engines decorating the walls and in the centre a wood–fire pizza oven that produces the best artisan pizzas in the Garden Route. The Bar stocks beautiful Cape wines and our barman makes a mean cocktail to enjoy feet up, watching the sun set over the Bitou River.
A DAY TO REMEMBER
A multi-purpose venue set in a tranquil garden is available for weddings, conferences, seminars, product launches, art exhibitions and theatrical productions.
