Intimate romantic lake setting

On the banks of the Wilderness lagoon, award-winning Moontide Guest Lodge has been heralded "the most romantic retreat in the Garden Route" as well as "best value Garden Route accommodation". 

Eight individually styled cottages and rooms, each with private entrance and outdoor seating area. A birder’s paradise, shaded by 400-year-old milkwood trees overlooking the lagoon. Luxurious. Tranquil. A real escape.

Moontide has a reputation for romance – five proposals have been made (and accepted!) here, and numerous nuptials celebrated in style. The entire venue (space to seat 100) can be hired, and accommodation for 16 guests (maximum 24) included. This is an outdoor veranda setting and tent hire is optional.
