The kwalucia private safari retreat is located in St. Lucia, only 1.5 kilometer away from isimangaliso wetlands park. It is run by a belgian couple, Fabienne and Serge, run. The two are absolutely lovely and bear on hands, without it ever pushy is. All rooms are beautifully decorated, nothing is left to chance. The tropical garden is a dream! Kwalucia has four rooms for in each case 2 persons. Age 12 years. The rooms are partly over narrow paths through dense green to reach, only rooms 1 and 2 are somewhat open location. Each room has a private terrace ... with seating. The room had 2 twinbeds, desk, refrigerator and safe. The fridge was filled with juices and Cola, both was included and was daily refilled. Furthermore, there was a fruit basket, the also refilled, as soon as you had inferred. Of course there was also a water heater with tea, coffee and fresh milk in the fridge. In the closet there were two wonderful fluffy bathrobes and two few new terry cloth slippers were prepared. In the evening the bed was turned down, a chocolate was a down comforter on the bed, every day a different sort of and the light was left on, so that the coming comfortable right away. The bathroom is only by a 2 meters high wall separated from the bedroom, which was a bit hard to get used to. It was with toilet, sink, bath and a walk-in shower with a wonderful shower head. There were various bath salts and other toiletries available. There is a ac, which a remote control is. This is also a heating. Al we on the first evening red wine from the provided water glasses had drunk, stood on the next day rotweingläser is required. The breakfast was sensational. Every day there were different breads, in addition muffins. For every a large bowl of fruit salad, a cup of natural yoghurt with cereal. There was also still packaged fruit yogurt, different cereals, honey, 3 sorts of jam and chocolate creme. Every day we were asked, whether we eggs and how prepared. Once we had fried eggs with bacon, in addition, there were dark bread with a avocadocreme, made of Fabienne and fantastically well. The next day we had scrambled eggs, the best, which i ate ever. The last days soft boiled eggs, once with freshly-brewed slightly spicy pineapple chutney, time with sausage, time kräuterkartoffeln and grilled tomatoes with herbs. Every day we got a salami and ham plate, even a cheese platter. Here, there is nobody hungry on. There is a beautiful pool on the grounds. There is wi-fi, good front desk but only in the breakfast room, on the terrace in front of the room it was very slow. read hotel review
