          St Lucia heaven”

          St Lucia is a fantastic little coastal resort with a lot to offer. Ndola lodge is one of many band bs in the area , but what stands out is the view from the honesty bar, yes that's right , honesty. You look out over the dunes of St Lucia which are only rivalled by Fraser Island in Australia. Breakfast caters for all tastes with the lodge staff awaiting your every whim. The lodge staff in general have a lot of knowledge which helped us find our way around, they are also able to book many of the trips which are available around the resort. There are guards available on the premises to help keep you safe from the hippos which frequent the rear garden. The rooms are extremely clean and provide the usual amenities , coffee , tea , etc. Towels are provided and there's a pool on the top deck next to the bar/ dining area in addition to the pool in the adjacent B and B which is available for all guests to use. There is also plenty of parking for all guests with a key fob provided.

          Great hideaway in the middle of hippo land”

          proximity of Hippos out of the water at night, comfort of our own lodge, forest walks

          Fabulous - I'd never seen hippos before - St. Lucia is a bit of a special place out on a limb - as are the people - however where else in the world can you see hippos at such close proximity both in and out of the water - wild and lovely - loved the walk along the platform along the rivers edge where you can see and hear the hippos and the crocs - if you love wildlife this is a fab place to visit. Accom was comfy & self catering was good - local supermarkets are fine and the staff at Ndiza very friendly. Just watch out that the adjoining accom (run by owner's daughter) does not have any unpleasant people staying there or in the pool as I had a rather bad experience from a drunk/drugged occupier in the pool but the owner made short shrift of him following my complaint. However, it should not have happened. (Not sure if the daughter has the same high standards as her mother).

          Leona took excellent care of us from start to finish. I high recommend this lodge because of her superior customer care skills, excellent hospitality, and extremely friendly and nurturing nature. I will only stay at this lodge when I visit St. Lucia because of the first rate customer service thanks to Leona.
