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

My wife and I stayed 4 days in the the kwalucia private safari retreat in St Lucia. Before that we made a journey through Zimbabwe and the north of South Africa. After staying in basic rest camps we really enjoyed the luxury rooms in Kwalucia, it was such a relief ☺. The retreat has recently been taken over by a... More

Magnificent gardens surround you with narrow paths leading to very private rooms. They are both very attentive to our needs snd genuinely helpful. Very nice breakfast,arranged our tours and plaesant company to... More

We had a wonderful couple of days staying with Serge & Fabienne. Their thoughtfulness and planning made the accommodation and grounds a pleasure. 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

Kwalucia is an oasis of calm and a super place to stay in Saint Lucia. The rooms and gardens are really excellent and the breakfast is superb. Serge and Fabienne are great hosts and make you really welcome. The situation is in a quiet street only a few metres from the local restaurants but it is quiet and peaceful. The... More

Fabienne and Serge really wants to make you feel at home before doing any paper work, they take time for a cocktail, point you to the local attraction and restaurant, the breakfast is excellent, the rooms are spacious and decorated in a Zulu style

Kwalucia exceeded our expectations by far...Serge and Fabienne were the perfect hosts and we could feel that they put their heart and soul into this place. The tropical garden is beautiful, the rooms all enjoy privacy and are perfectly clean and comfortable. The african decor is unique and makes the rooms feel warm and cosy. Fabienne will make sure you... More

I felt right at home at KwaLucia with Serge and Fabienne, who were always there for a chat, glass of wine or to answer questions about the area. The breakfasts were always delicious, and the wine selection incredible. This accommodation is hands-down the best St Lucia has to offer - clean, luxurious, welcoming and with a traditional safari feel. I... More
