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).

Quiet Gem

Posted Nov 2, 2015
Fond Doux was just what we were looking for! It's a quiet gem tucked away in the mountains but also very close to Sugar beach, other resorts, many natural island attractions and the local town of Soufriere. It was easy to take a taxi where ever we wanted with the help of the front desk staff setting up our transportation. Everyone was very friendly. The grounds of the plantation are beautiful and well kept. We stayed in the 1 bedroom African Tulip Cottage and it was very comfortable for my husband and I. We will definitely be back and would recommend this resort to others!

Peaceful and Serene

Posted Oct 29, 2015
Pros: We loved the lush and peaceful surroundings at Fond Doux Holiday Plantation.
Cons: New silverware,/glassware are a MUST!! The worn pieces cheapen the eating experience. Also, more variety is needed for evening meals.
Location: Hike the Tet Paul trail. Enjoy the plantation tour, the view of the Pitons - breathtaking! Sugar Beach, Jade mountain's black sand beach, snorkeling
We stayed in Hilltop Nutmeg which was peaceful and serene. The climb to Nutmeg requires energy (and strong knees), so be prepared for a little hike going home each night. Mosquitoes....they DO exist! so bring whatever protective measures you care to, that will also be environmentally thoughtful. The beautiful four post bed has a muslin-like mosquito netting which you can let down at night however we found that this made for a very, very, hot night. It might have been better to use actual netting, which could keep the mosquitoes out but let more air circulate. Ask for a standing fan, this will help a lot. Food in the restaurant was good, but lacked variety so after a few days we began exploring other area restaurants for a "change of taste". Silverware/glassware is worn and lackluster; just changing these small things could make a big difference to the presentation at mealtime. That being said, Staff are WONDERFUL!!! every single one... very accommodating, kind, and always pleasant. We thank each of them, and the owners who are often on-site, for their graciousness, attentiveness, and welcoming spirit.

Posted Aug 18, 2015
Pros: The unspoiled nature and beautifull cottages along the plantation.
Cons: i cant think of anything
Location: The location was perfect for the purpose of our trip. We liked the nature and went to the sulphur bath twice.We visited the waterfall.
We were very pleased with this nice and neat hotel.The staff was very friendly. We had a nice room. Although it was a good climb to our room we enjoyed the trip.The reception girls where very helpfull.The food was good and we liked the breakfast.We would recommend this hotel especially if you are going on a honeymoon to book this hotel in St.Lucia. We stayed only 3 nights but are planning to return next year for a whole week.Thanks to the staff for being so nice and helpfull.
