Unlike the iSimangaliso wetlands, the main strip in Saint Lucia isn't particularly charming - it's very touristy and limited for options. Yet, Lidiko Lodge manages to perfectly combine the convenience of the main strip and proximity to the wetlands with the beauty of the natural surroundings.
The property is calming and lovely, you'll enjoy having breakfast on the front patio or reading a book by the pool. Speaking of breakfast, it's delicious! We only stayed for two nights but the morning spread was different on each day and the second morning they served a yummy quiche. The rooms are delicately decorated and the bathrooms are not only huge but host the most wonderful and warm shower.
All that being said, the best thing about Lidiko, by far, is the warm hospitality they offer. The Manager, Leona, is like a fairy godmother who makes all of your wishes come true with a wave of her wand.
My boyfriend and I drove 7 hours from Joburg to Saint Lucia, Lidiko lodge was worth it!
