The botanic garden that leads you to your own cabin via a wooden boardwalk is not only very beautiful, but also shows small animals like turtles, which makes it very interesting, especially for kids. Also, the cabins are very clean and the breakfast is always different and, more importantly, very tasty. We were a bit unlucky with the weather, but the owner really helped us out with some ideas on what there is to do around the beautiful St. Lucia. Would definitely recommend!

Property's Favourite Review
From the moment you walk through the lobby, you're transported to another lush, tropical world. The gorgeous landscaping and attention to detail make you forget that you just came off a street in a small residential town, from the raised boardwalks to the outdoor showers, they have created a beautiful oasis that you'll never want to leave. The staff are super friendly and helpful and accommodated our every need. Unfortunately we were only in St. Lucia for a couple of days but we are already making plans to return and when we do, this is the place we want to stay!

Cannot rate this lodge highly enough. Rooms were spacious, well decorated and appointed - a real feel of old Africa about them. The site was beautiful, peaceful and welcoming. Staff were friendly. The breakfasts were absolutely top class

From the moment we arrived and were effortlessly booked in to our departure when we were waved goodbye the visit was pure magic. The setting is lush and tropical with a boardwalk between the cottages. Orchids hang from trees and the pool was sparkling clean and inviting. The accomodation itself was really lovely and thoughtfully designed with everything one could want. The linen was of high quality and I appreciated that there was somewhere to put our suitcases. Breakfast was served in a beautiful inside outside area and each day was something different. While we were there the kitchen made pancakes specially for a guests young daughter every morning. The food was beautifully prepared and presented . I believe a large part of the success of the Lodge is the manager Merle who is an attentive friendly presence. Nothing is too much effort for her and her staff and they create a great vibe in the lodge. Merle is a fount of knowledge about the area. .The lodge has 8 cottages and thus never felt overcrowded. We left feeling as though we were leaving good friends behind. It was quite simply the best stay these veteran travellers had ever had anywhere in the world.

I booked Lodge Afrique for the last three nights of a three-week trip to South Africa. It was certainly the best accomodation of the entire trip, so it was a perfect choice. The chalets are located in a wonderful tropical garden. They are spacious, beautifully decorated in African style and spotlessly clean. Also they offer a great deal of privacy. The bathroom is luxurious with a separate bathtub and shower. The manager was very friendly and helpful with organising transfers. Also she made sure we got packed breakfast every morning after she heard that we plan to leave early on tours. Other staff members we encountered were very friendly as well. It was a wonderful stay and we hope to return one day.
