This place is amazing. The lodge is small and cousy. A lovely garden and a small but nice pool. A place for both couples and families. We stayed for six nights. The owners are so nice and helpful. The breakfast was more than enough. The hotel is clean, big rooms and located in the centre of town. It is quiet...

Umlilo's client service is brilliant and the owners are a pleasure to work with. The lodge is stunning and the breakfast is very nice. They are centrally placed which makes the evening walks easier. We could only stay in the small room next to the breakfast are, which cost us some privacy. Next time ill book another room.

A very exotic place which gives the feeling of beeing in the djungle. Very nice rooms, very good breakfast and a cosy atmosphere. Short walk to main road with all resturants. Helpful and trustworthy staff - you get very good tips on what to do as well as support to book tickets. Can absolutley recomend!

Great stay in St. Lucia! My wife and I previously lived in South Africa and visited St. Lucia on many occasions over the years. Somehow Umlilo Lodge was a location we had not encountered before. We returned to St. Lucia after over 5 years now with 2 young children (4 and 6) for a short break over the Christmas holidays...

Everyone was so friendly and helpful, happy to provide suggestions or book trips for you. Loved the layout, it was awesome and unique, it was also most like being in a tree house type scenario. Close to down town, you don't have to drive if you don't want to. They provided a fantastic full breakfast every day.

Visited with my family for one night. Arrived early and our rooms were not ready, but they locked up our luggage and gave us a map with some suggestions on what to do and see in st lucia. Helped us with reservation for a hippo and crocdile cruise. Nice clean rooms, quiet surroundings and centrally located. Good value for money.

We enjoyed our stay there but had problems with the airconditioner. The owner tried to fix it but it was still not functional. The rest of the service and facilities were great!!! Our room was fully functional and dry clean

we had a one night stay here as part of our overnight safari. This place is a hidden gem, the atmosphere is magical, the staff super friendly and the rooms-well they are cavernous and the beds are great. St. Lucia being a quaint little town, everything is in walking distance. We were just wishing that we could have stayed longer.If...
