Under new management, this extensive makeover was started in February this year, and is expected to be finished in the next few weeks.

Our 6000sqm tropical garden has been remodeled, and the landscaping designed to attract loads of birds, duiker, bush bucks, and of course hippos. Visitors can possibly enjoy game viewing and bird watching right on our property.

Our rooms are being renovated and redecorated to bring it back to its 4-5 star quality status. Our guests can definitely expect the quality accommodation they always look forward to when on holiday.

Coupled with the renovations is retraining of all staff in line with new management's objective to assure quality service to all our guests.

Our dining area and kitchen have also been renovated and now house a fully serviced restaurant called Hogs 'n Hippo Bistro which is open 7 days a week and serves hearty breakfasts, Afro gourmet braais, and other delicious dishes.

Our conference facility, with a maximum capacity of 150 people, has been fully fitted with LED lights and externally repainted with eco-friendly, green technology Nu-roof cool paint.

In addition, St Lucia Eco Lodge continues to implement practical and environment friendly concepts in every area of its operation to make this one of the best restoration projects in this region."
