Beautiful place. Only stayed one night but wished we stayed longer. Everything was perfectly decorated and the staff were excellent. The location is next to a walking trail by the estuary which made it great for us because we love birding. Thanks again for everything!

Maybe Summer is the better Time to travel to Saint Lucia. It was quite chilly in the room, especially the bathroom and also the next Morning in the breakfast room was very cold. We asked for a Restaurant recommendation and did not really get one.

Our stay was on a B and B basis. A good choice of options for breakfast, good and friendly service. The room was nicely decorated and clean and you had the use of the beautiful lounge to sit and read if you wanted. Location was good - about a 5 minute walk to shops and restaurants.

We have spent here 3 nights and really loved staying here. The lodge is rather small, is a mix between a b&b and a lodge itself. The main house has a nice style with a lot of African objects and books around and with a "shabby chic" flavour. The patio and the breakfast hall are nice and comfortable and look...

I booked accommodation in November 2015 for 3 adults and 2 children aged 11 and 14. Having advised many days before we arrived that we planned to arrive at +/- 4pm. I was surprised to find no-one to meet us when we arrived at 4pm. A further surprise was to find we had been allocated rooms 2, 4, and 6,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
St Lucia is the gateway to the beautiful iSimangaliso Wetlands Park, declared South Africa`s first World Heritage Conservation Site in 1999. St Lucia Kingfisher Lodge is situated at the edge of town which means that whilst the shops, restaurants and other amenities are only a 10 minute walk away, the lodge`s delightful gardens blend seamlessly into the surrounding Gwalagwala Forest. The lodge has extensive shady gardens with a wide variety of trees. St Lucia Estuary can be viewed from the end of the garden and the start of the walking trail through the Gwalagwala Forest is next to the front gate. This proximity to nature means that the gardens are home to a wide variety of birds and are often visited by animals such as hippos, various antelope, bush babies and very occasionally leopards. A small swimming pool is available for the exclusive use of guests. Guests are welcome to relax either on sun loungers in the garden, under a poolside shaded area or in the comfortable lounge in the main house. All room rates include a delicious full breakfast which is served in a light and airy dining room offering views of the gardens and estuary. Accommodation at St Lucia Kingfisher Lodge: We offer six unique and private rooms. Each room sleeps two and is equipped with air-conditioning, mosquito nets and a bar fridge for your comfort and convenience. All rooms have en suite facilities and a private shaded patio area. Other facilities at St Lucia Kingfisher Lodge: - Bar Fridge in each suite - Traditional Zulu hair braiding by the experts (go home with a new hairstyle) - All our Suites are non-smoking - Smoking on the patio is permitted - Internet Facilities - Free WiFi - Secretarial Services i.E.: Confirmation of flights, arranging tours/safaris etc ... more   less
