We spent 2 nights here which was linked to a short safari from Durban. The Lodge is made up of wooden cabins surrounded by plants and trees, giving the feeling of staying in a rain forest. The bedroom was large and very comfotable with everything you could possibly need included. The bathroom, wow, huge, with walk in shower and a great bath tub. Breakfast was great and plentiful. Good location, 2 minute onto main road with bars and restaurants.A great place to stay in Saint Lucia.
We spent two fantastic nights in Umlilo Lodge. The owners are very friendly and extremely helpful inorganizing and booking trips for their guests.
