Very clean, friendly, safe and unique. Top quality too! This is such an interesting idea, to be in an urban environment but feel like you're somewhere completely different. This would also make an ideal venue for a group or family visit as it offers a communal setting with private personal accommodation. Well worth visiting.

This would be my second stay at Urban Glamping and was welcomed by the ever so friendly staff as well as the manageress, who seems to be always on top of things. The facilities as well as the tents were very comfortable and i had no trouble falling asleep. The facility is always quiet and shows the reputation UG has built up over the years maintaining this level. I will definitely be Glamping again soon! Warm Regards Craig

The pics looked great and we decided to splurge and go with the luxury rather than the budget for our three nights in St Lucia. And we were glad we did. The oasis-like setting was great. How the whole place worked was ideal. Would recommend.

The best place. The best vibe. My family cannot get enough of this place. We always feel as if we are at home. Very clean. Very green. The feeling that you are in the bush and then walk out and into the main street in the town is absolutely amazing.

Absolutely beautiful lodge with a sense of calmness and peace to it. I loved the communal kitchen area as that gave me the opportunity to meet a lot of like-minded souls. Such friendly staff and just an overall good feeling.

Urban Glamping made our weekend away effortless! Their friendly assistance in booking our weekend activities took the stress of looking for service providers away. The "urban glamping" experience was wonderful.
