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

We had such a warm welcome with Michelle and Zanele! The rooms and the lodge are so beautifully decorated within the wetlands dune forest to allow for amazing walks, bird watching etc. The lodge is quiet with a lovely pool area in a beautiful cultivated garden to relax and overlooking the river estuary. The service is excellent. We will be back !

I have used Kingfisher a few times before, and have always been very happy. So for a one night stay I had no hesitation in going back there. Comfortable, clean with happy and efficient service, as always.

Nice place next to the forest. Friendly people, good breakfast, nice pool, very quiet but still central and in walking distance to the restaurants. If you are lucky you see the hippos very close ... If not enjoy the monkeys in the morning.

Spotless rooms. Very friendly staff. Always prepared to walk an extra mile for satisfaction of guests. This is indeed a home away from home. I have recommended this place to my friends and associates who plan to visit St Lucia.
