“Very comfortable and convenient.”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

We last stayed here at the end of 2009 and were happy to return. The parking security is now much improved and the rooms are still excellent with comfortable beds and an excellent spacious bathroom with a huge shower and separate bath. This no longer has a bar in the lapa which we thought was a pity but there is a minibar in each room now. The rooms are being rethatched which is good and a bit of upgrading is getting to be needed in the rooms. Pity too no longer someone in reception in the evenings and the breakfast is a touch less extensive, though still more than adequate.

Room Tip: Rooms close to reception area on the left, in the corner, are a bit dark.

Was our first time in St Lucia after a very long time. Very friendly management advised us to have lunch at Ski Boat Club which was "Superb" lovely view good food really enjoyed it. Not far from Amazulu. Our rooms were very nice clean spacious nicely decorated. Lovely shower... Breakfast was good and beautiful pool & garden area. Also nice that we could walk into town (St Lucia) for dinner very convenient. Will return again soon.

The hotel manager here, is excellent. it is a little worn down the place, but overall good, and great with parking space, breakfast is good and the rooms are clean. A little bit of upgrading, like new tv, internet in the room, and a bar in the evenings, would do wonders.
And perhaps someone in the reception in the evenings..

Room Tip: Take a room at the back, if you can.

As an out-of-town-er, one thing that struck me was that we could not have even entered Amazulu Lodge had one of us not had a cellphone working in South Africa. They close doors at 6pm... we were 2 minutes late, but the doors were locked. You call the manager who comes and opens the doors and gives you the room keys.
The place was very unique in its style and very very comfortable. The rustic feel was what I enjoyed the most. But the rooms do not have much in terms of a view. The bathroom had good supplies which was a plus. The decoration and style of the rooms were very traditional which enhanced our experience of the stay. It is just walking distance from many restaurants which was a plus when walking out to get lunch and dinners.
Breakfast was simple yet tasty. the food seemed homemade and added to the enjoyment. The common area also had an upstairs which was cosy and comfortable to read a book or work on your computer. The only downside was that internet was not available inside the rooms which made us to sit in the reception and check our emails and do some work.
Will definitely come back!

When we arrived from Durban, the reception was fantastic, our room was not ready , but it did not matter, we lazed around the pool until it was, then we went to the river for our cruise. The room was very confortable, very game reserve look *** really good beds , its always my worry with bad back history, Breakfast was ample and staff was very proffessional... i would recomend anybody to stay there , i have a very nice souvenir ... thank you very much !!! loved it ..

Room Tip: all rooms seem to be the same , so it does not matter, the only problem i had , is the smell of the...

We loved every minute of our stay at Amazulu, from the wonderful friendly front desk staff to our beautifully appointed room, that was spotless. Everything is perfectly kept at the lodge. There is alot of attention to detail put into each room, even down to the his and hers towels. Breakfast was a great part of our day with a nice little breakfast selection with ultra-friendly staff.
The lodge is in a great location on the main street, and is so convenient to walk to a restaurant for supper, but at the same time is quiet and feels somewhat secluded. I absolutely love st Lucia and definitely will be returning to Amazulu on my next trip.
