My husband and I, with my sister-in-law and her husband, spent two wonderful days in Kwalucia Private Safari, quiet place in the village. The rooms are spacious, cozy and comfortable, surrounded by a blossoming garden, trees, swimming pool. The breakfast was excellent with many things home-made. The hosts, Ann and Alex, are extremely friendly and were always there to answer... More

My wife, daughter and I were fortunate to be the first visitors, in May 2015, with the brand new owners of Kwalucia. The place is fantastic: a big, blossoming and well kept garden, full with high trees shading it, with low buildings, beautifully built with eye for detail. The rooms are spacious and luxury, cozy and comfortable. There is a... More

I hope any future owners can live up to what they have worked so hard to achieve (the retreat is up for sale). It was such a surprise to find such a beautiful and peaceful place right... More

Serge and Fabienne don't need the ringing endorsement so inexpertly outlined in this report; they are moving onto new projects. They will do well -that is guaranteed. But, I should like to write this report, just to thank them for taking us into their world for two weeks. Firstly a few words about getting to St.Lucia. We flew -Premium Economy... More
