“What a fabulous place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

Mom and I spent an amazing week there in our super cute and comfortable 2 bedroom chalet cottage with large grilling area patio. I loved the gardens and the way the lodge is built into the jungle. I love St. Lucia and surrounding areas but I could not have enjoyed my stay as much were it not for staying at beautiful Ndiza. We were made to feel very special by the wonderful staff who took very good care of us and our every need. I was a joy and a pleasure to stay there and we will be back.

Room Tip: The chalets are wonderful and also have A/C

Stunning lodge, awesome honesty bar, plunge pool overlooking St Lucia estuary, with wild hippos roaming the streets at night, close to town and restaurants, amazing breakfasts on outside upper deck. Staff and Management very friendly.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the main lodge near the plunge pool

I stayed at Ndiza for 5 days over new year. Location is great - lovely and quiet yet easy walk into town.

Room was nice enough but very dark - being in basement means it doesn't get a lot of natural light (room 1 if I remember correctly). Not sure about other rooms. Communal areas / honesty bar great, esp for me as i was travelling alone.

Breakfast good though the same everyday (unless you asked for your eggs to be cooked differently!).

Lalie was absolutely brilliant the entire time, helping me sort the tours I'd booked when one got cancelled, making me feel welcome, striking a great balance between checking in with me and giving me space, etc.

I would stay again but in a different room.

We went and stayed at Ndiza Lodge and Cabana's for the second time now in two years, we were there in 2012 for our honeymoon and its was absolutely amazing! You really do get treated like royalty there. We went back again this December and once again had a brilliant time! Amanda and team will make sure you have a great stay! Great accommodation in a great town!!

A stunning location, they told us look out for hippos on your way home in the evening, I didn't believe them and what do you know - there was the hippo right there next to us by the gate - amazing!! Such a special town, such a special place do do the night game drive with Shaka-Barker, we got a take away pizza, set on the deck overlooking the wilderness for sunset and then headed out to see some epic wildlife. The accommodation itself has everything you need for self catering, braaing, internet and has aircon and you will not find a more reasonable price for a family of three in the town.

Thank you for the lovely review! It was my pleasure to spoil you two lovebirds while you were staying with us. You are such a lovely couple. I am glad you both had a great time. I wish you both all of the best for the future and hope to see you again on your first anniversary. And your 50th anniversary!
Always stay in love like you are now.
Kindest Regards
