Ingwenya Lodge Guest Reviews

Great place to stay for discovering the wetlands. Madeleine was very helpful with recommendations and everything else we needed. The lodge is in a quiet street which we 100% preferred to the main street. The best part: the amazing sea view (if you stay in the upper apartment). Also the garden and pool are very nice.
I would definitely stay there again.



Very spacious apartment, good walking access to the town, excellent WiFi signal, nice outside space with BBQ.

Wonderful views across to the sea, with no intervening habitation. Large, relaxed and private. Helpful and friendly manager. Lovely to have a swim in the pool. Great early morning birding within the property.

Exceptional - The owner is friendly, the amazing part is by 8 o'clock evening, two hippos walked to the house and drank the water from swimming pool.

I really recommend Ingwenya Lodge if you plan to visit St.Lucia. The place is just wonderful - beautiful view, nice garden with a pool,comfortable rooms with big kitchens. There are plenty of birds and every morning I saw a kingfisher sitting on the branch just opposite my window. The hosts are very friendly and you really feel like visiting old friends, when you are there.

Great place to stay with kids in the age of 8-15. Organic building style. The kids will love to climb into the tree and sit on the platform. The view is magnificent. We regret that we could only stay for one night.

We enjoyed our stay very much. Beautiful rooms and a beautiful garden. In the morning there were several monkeys playing in the trees and sometimes a hippo visits the pool when you are lucky. The ownner was very friendly!
