“Friendly and welcoming”
Reviewed 10 May 2012

We had a lovely time during December with Amanda and her team. They are the most welcoming people we have met in a long time. St Lucia is lovely and just the right place to rest after a very long year. The cabanas are lovely, clean and spacious.

Nothing was to much for them to do. They helped us with fishing spots, umbrellas for the beach and everything we needed. We joined the guests in the lodge for a Christmas breakfast on the lovely veranda looking over the ocean and the estuary. It was a great time.

We felt very welcome on arrival and were shown to a lovely double room in the lodge that opened out to a large verandah. Breakfasts were fantastic served from the top deck with gorgeous views of the sea and estuary. Close enough to town centre to walk or drive (2 mins). The garden was amazing and we really liked the viewing deck at the bottom of the garden. We were spoiled with a hamper as it was our honeymoon and this really meant alot to us both. Be sure to have a sun downer at the yacht club to watch the crocs and hippos.

Room Tip: There is a nice large double room on the ground floor opening on to the verandah. We enjoyed it as w...

The Lodge is located in a calm and beautiful side road close to the St. Lucia Lake and the indian ocean. We received a very warm welcome from Leona, a very nice and helpful person. We have been free to use her Wifi and phone. The rooms in the front area were nice, clean and spacious. we've been gicen a 2 bedroom cabana for the price of one single room. All cabanas were eqipped with a private terrace, where you receive constant visits by the monkeys who live in the trees around. At night the door is closed because it my happen that a hippo enters the area for a quick snack in the garden of the houses.
Our shower needed a small remodelling, but it was clean, though not a problem at all.
St. Lucia is a placid little city surrended by the lush nature of the Wetlands.

Had a wonderful time. Made to feel very welcome. Leona was very warm and hospitable nothing was too much trouble offering us a beach umbrella and cooler when we talked of going to the beach. Delicious breakfasts. Would highly recommend the place.

Stayed in this lodge with my partner and 3 friends. It's a short walk to the restauarants/bars/shops of St Lucia. As other reviewers have said, the deck and the views are lovely and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

We had such a wonderful stay in the cabanas at Ndiza. The ladies were incredibly welcoming and kind, and we loved every minute of our holiday. There are the most fantastic views over the forest to the estuary and the beach, and the deck is a great place to enjoy a sundowner. We have every intention of returning and staying at Ndiza again.
