We stayed at the lodge on the recommendation of Steve Connor of Bush Beach tours based in Umdtoli. Wow is the only way to describe it. The welcome was fantastic, the room unbelievably comfortable and with everything you could want or need. The breakfast was superb, with such an exceptional choice of fruits, cereals, cooked food etc. Tessa was so... More

We stayed 3 nights, during our stay in St. Lucia. Location is good, with a 5 min. walking distance to main street where the shops and restaurants are. Rooms are very nice; spacious, large bed, wifi and tv working well, good working shower. Some insects sometimes though. Breakfast was very nice. Plenty of choice; eggs, small pancakes, muffins, toast, cereal,... More

It was very nice having you here for three days and I am glad you enjoyed our good breakfasts. We do sometimes have small spiders and bugs entering the rooms, this is Africa, but we do spray every day after cleaning to make sure the bugs do not bother our guests. More
