Moontide Guest Lodge

From R510 PPS

Overview

Set amidst 400-year-old milkwood trees and a profusion of birds and plants, Moontide is the most romantic of retreats. Located on the shores of the Wilderness lagoon, with Gardens that flow into its tidal waters, the lodge is a birdwatcher's paradise, and the seven en-suite cottages and rooms, each with their own entrance and outdoor seating area, are designed to provide you with those real 21st century luxuries: space and privacy.

Spend the day exploring the forests and waterfalls of Wilderness National park, or sightseeing the quaint towns of Knysna or Oudtshoorn, but make sure you set aside enough time to unwind in your Moontide hideaway

Start the day with a great breakfast, served on the terrace overlooking the lagoon. Help yourself to a buffet table of cereals, yoghurt, cheese, breads, juice and milk. The on-duty manager will then offer you a choice of hot breakfast options, served with a bottomless pot of excellent filter coffee, or breakfast or Rooibos tea.So much to do, so little time. Most Moontide guests try to get back to the lodge by 3pm, leaving them a few hours to unwind next to the pool and enjoy the serene lagoon views with sun-downers. Here's the plan: add an extra day to your itinerary, and then there'll be no need to rush! You won't regret it.

The Wilderness beaches are great for walking, but strong currents make it less than ideal for swimming - for ocean swimming you should take a day trip to Plettenberg Bay. The lagoon in front of the lodge is however great for swimming - warm and perfectly clean and safe - don't be put off by the tea-colour of the water - this is caused by plant oxides. Nearby Victoria Bay is a tiny bay with a great break - popular with local surfers.

Moontide itself is also well located within Wilderness - at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, it is the only lodge right on the lagoon, yet the beach is a four minute stroll from here, while the charming Milkwood Village, with its craft shops, informal eateries and health spa is a 10 minute walk (or three minute drive) away. The boardwalk and Wilderness Park trails are also within easy walking (or paddling) distance. And one of South Africa's Top 100 restaurants - regularly voted so, and deservedly - is a five-minute drive from your doorstep.
