My sister and I stayed for four very memorable nights. The accommodation, breakfasts and surroundings were stunning and our hosts were very welcoming and extremely helpful in providing suggestions as to where to visit and recommending the best restaurants in Wilderness and surrounds. Overall a wonderful experience.

Cozy and charming, with a beautiful private deck, right on the lagoon. We even had our own little fireplace, for the chilly winter evenings. The...

I have visited Moontide many times over the years, and each time I am amazed by how you glide into another world as you enter the gate. The first thing you notice is the tranquil beauty of the setting - thatch cottages on the edge of a lagoon is hard to beat. But there is a whole lot more to...

The breakfast was also really yummy and the whole property had a real nice feel about it. We lucked into a calm morning paddled up the...

Beautiful setting, excellent accommodation and very helpful staff. We enjoyed a lovely meal at a restaurant within walking distance and had beach access also within walking distance. Wished we'd had longer here.

We couldn't believe the value for money of the "Romance Special" at Moontide that included a couples Rasul steam and full body massage. We stayed in the "Tree Tops" room which was lovely and private. Tim (manager) was exceptionally helpful booking restaurants and advising day trips. Other highlights were big breakfasts, good free wifi and the pedal boat around the...
