Was an amazing weekend the food was divine, the staff helpful and friendly. Really sad we needed to leave. I would recommend this venue anytime. We absolutely loved the decor for the Friday night dinner in the cave and the reception was breath taking.

It was very nice stay in the lodge. during our stay we have visited the area with a very gentle guide and the food you provided based on our interest. I would like to thank you for your hospitality. If you have such kind of hotel near the town it will be fine for shopping and others.

We spent a Friday and Saturday night at Monate for a wedding. The place is the ideal bush get away. Food was 5 star and the staff very helpful and pleasant. The cave venue is something to behold and the rooms are clean, great bed and aircon to boot. I can highly recommend this venue and game lodge.

Incredible weekend stay - I booked at Monate for my husband's 30th birthday.
