Peace and Serenity

Posted Mar 2, 2016
I just returned home from a stay in St Lucia. All I can say is, "wow!!" The beauty of the island is breathtaking and the people are warm and friendly. I was glad to know that the people there speak English as well as their native Creole. I loved Fond Doux. The food was amazing!! Really amazing! And the cottages are set in the rainforest and are secluded and lovely. The staff there was exceptionally kind and helpful. We stayed in the Cocoa Tree cottage and it was a short, easy walk from there to the restaurant. Some of the other cottages are set high on a mountain so you might want to consider this information if you tire easily or have trouble climbing steps. Cocoa Tree has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a lovely front porch with rocking chairs, a small kitchen (with a small refrigerator), and a sitting area. The sounds of the rainforest are peaceful, but you might consider earplugs if you are a light sleeper since there is no way to completely close up the cottage, since it has mosquito screens over the windows and doors instead of glass. The Fond Doux staff was very helpful in suggesting excursions and shuttles or taxis. I especially enjoyed the Tet Paul hike!! Do not miss this! Ask for a guide named Fabius. If you are looking for a plush hotel like a Hilton then this resort is not for you. If however you are looking for a new experience filled with peace, serenity, new foods, and wonderful people then this is the place for you!

Rain Forest

Posted Feb 29, 2016
Pros: The best part was staying in our unique cottage. We also enjoyed having Jardin Caceo (great restaurant) right on site.
Cons: It was have been nice to know all the things the resort had to offer up front. We found out about the bus shuttle to the beach by accident at the bar
Location: We toured the rain forest with a local guide, he even brought us to his farm and introduced us to friends in his village.
We were living in paradise while we were at Fond Doux Plantations. The grounds were beautiful, everything is flowering or dropping fruit and the birds, chameleons, frogs were incredible. The staff couldn't have been nicer to us. They were quick to attend all our needs and were eager to visit and added so much to our experience.

Relaxed and unpretentious

Posted Feb 7, 2016 on HotelClub
Fond Doux is a great spot and with only 15 cottages you really feel you have the place to yourself. The staff are brilliant. It's in easy reach of all Soufriere has to offer. However, the free shuttle to nearby Sugar beach was a bonus but it could so easily have been expanded to explore other local attractions and make the service even more attractive.

Experience the rain forest and the island culture

Posted Feb 5, 2016
Pros: The staff was very friendly and helpful, and we liked the 'tucked away' feel of the rain forest. We also liked having our own cottage in the treetops.
Cons: There are lots of cobble stone steps and paths that lend to the authentic feel of the plantation; I'm not sure you can really do anything about that
Location: Mud baths and sulfer springs (volcano) are less than 10 minutes away. There is also a nice waterfall within in 20 minutes.
Nestled into the rain forest your private villa awaits up in the tree tops. Rustic cobblestone and 'bamboo' architecture amidst the cocoa plantation make you feel like you are really experiencing St Lucia. The food - AMAZING - with great presentation, kind and helpful staff, amidst the tropical sounds of the rain forest. The bartenders also had some unique and tasty island cocktails, and the staff made arrangements for us for transportation to our next destination, as well as to the mud baths (10 minute away).
