Except of a moisty smell when we arrived (it had rained before) the rooms were fabulous. The sphere , furniture and art in the rooms made it wonderfull to stay. Also the lounge was lovely and service very good. A great breakfast was served on the terras.

Had a great one night stay at Moontide and would happily have stayed for much longer. The thatched cottage style guest house feels very special and romantic with a deck leading down to the lagoon. Canoed from the house along the lagoon and then swam from the jetty on return. Beautifully furnished bedroom in 'old Africa' style. Very well looked...

In addition breakfast was served in a...

The owner and staff at Moontide are it's greatest asset where nothing is too much trouble and they make you feel very welcome. Tim the manager was most helpful in making restaurant reservations and recommendations of where to eat and giving us points of interest. The room was comfortable and the bathroom was large and had a big bath. The...

This is a tranquil little surprise, tucked away at the end of a road and nestling alongside the river. There are several suites/cottages, each with their own personality. We stayed in the Moonriver suite. Each unit is different and, although they don't all have balconies, they are very private. The main house, the deck and our accommodation were filled with...

We have lost count of our wonderful sojourns at Moontide - this visit was just as special. Our first stay in The Tree House soaring above the canopy was something different with a terrific view over the lagoon and mountains. Thankyou once again for a wonderful weekend.
