The lodges are so well designed that you could be in the middle of a jungle (with a pool). The most welcoming owner makes you feel instantly at home and has lots of interesting things to tell you. The room was very large and comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious and huge; the cook does fantastic baking every morning. It... More

The reception was enthousiastic, the room was big and so was the .bathroom. The location is close to the citycentre and the restaurants. Although we were advised to be very cautious because of possible hippo's in the night wandering through town. We didn't see them. But in the nature reserve and during the boatride we saw many. Interesting environment.

Very nice logde in a "jungle-garden" - big rooms and bathrooms with nice interior. The host are really nice and helpful and do have a lot of tips about activities in St. Lucia. We did enjoy our stay here very much.

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
