A lovely unsual setting with well appointed rooms and well located. Es and Lourenz were fabulous hosts - helpful, warm and friendly with lots of great hints and tips. The rooms are cosy and beds comfortable and we found the Umlilo a lovely relaxing place to come back to after a day's activities. Breakfast was outstanding. It is not perfect (in particular, the lighting in the bedrooms could be improved) but we would choose the character of the lodge and the warm hospitality we received over the sterility of a corporate-run hotel every time!

We loved our stay here - Esther is so helpful and welcoming, the setting with the water and plants and boardwalks is delightful. The rooms are spacious and really well equipped. Breakfast was excellent and reading the other reviews I wish we'd tried the dinner too as we didn't have much success in the local restaurants! The area around St Lucia is lovely and there is lots to do.

We had no idea what we were booked into for our 3 nights accommadation in St Lucia. But from the moment we were greeted, and then shown to our rooms, I was in love. Walking through the trees and up the steps to a rustic type room that offered all that we needed. Very clean, great position and we could not fault our stay. The breakfasts looked like they were for an army of people and catered for all tastes. Two dinners were supplied and home cooked and just beautiful. A Braai well catered for with lots of food as well. Would really recommend the Umlilo Lodge to anyone going into the area. Handy position to shops, a very easy walk to the markets. Thanks to the lady owner and her son for looking after us so well. Would go back given the chance but New Zealand is quite a way to come from.

Great first visit to St Lucia thanks to Umlilo. Well located in the town. Excellent advice about where to go and what to do in the area. Nice breakfast, especially the muffins. Would return without a doubt.
