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.

There are many great features to Umlilo but the ones which stand out are the service from the owner who is very friendly and helpful, the breakfast could feed a small army and the whole layout is so unique making you feel that you are already on safari. You can walk into town in 2 minutes. St Lucia itself is... More

We spent 2 nights here which was linked to a short safari from Durban. The Lodge is made up of wooden cabins surrounded by plants and trees, giving the feeling of staying in a rain forest. The bedroom was large and very comfotable with everything you could possibly need included. The bathroom, wow, huge, with walk in shower and a... More

We spent two fantastic nights in Umlilo Lodge. The owners are very friendly and extremely helpful inorganizing and booking trips for their guests. They recommended us a very good boat-tour on the Estuary. Don't miss out the breakfast - it is an absolute highlight! The design of the B&B is very nice and makes you feel at home immediately.

My friend and I booked a safari which had Umlilo Lodge linked to our accomodation. An absolutely great place to stay!!! The owners were super friendly and really accomodating. A fantastic braii and babotti to die for ;) I'm only sorry that we didn't get to say goodbye, as we had to rush away after our safari. I would definitely... More

We had a really nice welcome by the host who showed us to our rooms and talked us through our itineraries the agent sent her. The rooms were very in keeping with the bush/treehouse/log cabin feel. Unfortunately the lighting was pretty dark in the room and very dark in the bathroom. If you don't like creepy crawlies in your bedroom... More

A very good lodge chosen for us by the tour company. Comfortable surroundings in a beautiful location. Breakfast and dinner were very good and it was very useful to have the "honesty bar" to get either a glass or a bottle of wine. The proprietors were very friendly and the lodge was managed efficiently.Certainly worth coming to again.

Umlilio's owners and especially the 'mom' was extremely friendly. Breakfast was average but nice. The mattresses needs attention. Overall a lovely stay. Location is beautiful and the gardens pretty...

Amazing B&B, wonderful rooms (lots of space, decoration, clea, just beautiful) and lovely owners. They help to organise tours, also in advance and everything was well organized. We stayed just one night, but this was the best B&B on our trip.

We stayed at Umlilo for 4 nights using it as home base for exploring the area. South African hospitality at it's best is met at Umlilo. From the moment we checked in we were treated with utmost warmth and received help in every way including a home made birthday cake for my wife. The property is not brand new but... More
