Umlilo is a lovely B&B tucked away in the pretty little town of St. Lucia. I was welcomed on arrival by the owner who was very warm and hospitable. The room was very spacious and very comfortable with a nice spacious bathroom and great water pressure. I arrived after a busy day at a seminar in the town and welcomed... More

Our stay here was faultless, the owner was very hospitable, nothing was too much trouble and he gave us great information. It was a great location for estuary/beach as well as shops and restaurants. Room was big and well equipped, bathroom was beautiful and the gardens were something else! The honesty bar was a great touch, trusting guests to help... More

A very good place to stay in St. Lucia, close to shops and restaurants. Lovely ambience with a "Bali" feeling. Good sized, and good room. Good service and very helpful host and hostess. Would stay there again, if we come back to St. Lucia.

This was a little bit of paradise in the middle of Saint Lucia. Lovely green jungle setting and beautifully cared for gardens. The family running it were charming and treated us with warmth and care. The dinner was deliciously African. Accommodation was excellent with spacious rooms and clean. Thank you for a wonderful stay. Recommended to all.

A lovely little oasis in the middle of St Lucia. The owners were super helpful with booking guided tours and we wished we had planned for more time to spend here. The common areas are great and makes for easy contact with other guests. The room was fine and nicely decorated.

Sorry, i did the reservation with booking.com. Very nice stay, we really enjoyed it :) good breakfast, nicely pool, really close to atm, shops and the ferry for boatcruise to see the hippos. Visit cape vidal, very beautifull beach and landscaoe (always watch the speedlimit, the police also charge you in the park).

We stayed for one night and it was lovely. Rooms spacious and clean with nice decor. A little oasis in the town of St Lucia, with a stream running through the lodge and quaint sitting areas. Breakfast was delicious. The owner, Lourens, was very warm, welcoming and helpful. Will definitely stay again.

I stayed for two nights in this lodge because I didn't book a hotel in advance, so by the time I tried to book a hotel this one was the only one available. Well, my friends and I do like staying in Luxury Hotels, so if you do too, keep in mind that this is not one. It is a... More

We were welcomed warmly and introduced to a wonderfully arranged accommodation among high trees, lush bushes and gurgling streams on the premises. It has been very pleasant stay for us. Unfortunately the nearby Wetland Park has suffered from a prolonged drought with negative effects on flora and fauna.
