The service they offer is amazing and they also gave us some tips for hippo spotting at night! Only downside is the breakfast is partly outside, which can get cold when it's raining (like it did when we were there)

We had a longer than expected drive from Joburg but the welcome and charming surroundings made us quickly forget. The location with all the great suggestions made our short visit know we wanted to come back for more. You feel like you are in the midst of nature with nice creature comforts. Very convenient to small town and its charm.

Stayed for a weekend. Very comfortable. Furniture rustic but adequate. Very clean. Bathroom a bit dark and the basin tap kept falling off. Beautiful garden. Breakfast was lovely, nothing lacking. Very friendly and helpful staff. Overall a lovely weekend.

It was like staying in a huge treehouse, with added luxury. The staff were all so welcoming and ensured our room was clean and we were fully catered for. The honesty bar really sets the tone for the type of fanily run establishment this is. Loved the place, definitely recommend it!

Idyllic setting in a tropical garden. Owners with a special care for details and for their guests. They prepared a special barbecue just for the 2 of us under the boma...delicious and the best malva pudding! Very friendly people

Very useful suggestions and know the needs of a tourist well. Program changes were fixed by them and doubts were cleared with Heritage as well, this made the holiday hassle free. Breakfast... More

I loved this place - the staff is so friendly and the layout of the place is fun to "explore" and maneuver thru. It felt like we were staying in the trees in a jungle. The fish swimming in the stream that runs under the walk way just adds to the experience. The only down side - we had a... More

This place is almost perfect! Almost. You cannot possibly beat the friendliness of the owners, their zeal to make you comfortable, and their willingness to help. Furthermore, the atmosphere outside the rooms, but within the confines of the property, is absolutely wonderful!!! When you enter, you're at the main lobby. Once you turn to the right and enter the wooded... More

In addition the proprietors and staff were friendly and helpful. Although the lodge was in process of refurbishment our comfort was not compromised. If I were to return to St Lucia I would certainly consider staying at Umlilo again.
