My husband and I spent ten beautiful days at this resort, celebrating our honeymoon! We would definitely recommend it... The cottages are beautiful, very private and located close to the islands best amenities.

Nice hotel in tropical environs

Posted Oct 30, 2016
Pros: Pools were Awsome and the food was excellent, grounds spectacularly well kept, cottage was very charming.
Cons: The only bummer was that there was no air conditioning nor fans in the downstairs and it was so hot and muggy it was nearly impossible to sleep.
The hotel is authentic, historic and charming. Staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating. We wish we could have had more time to enjoy the lovely pools.

Remote and unspoiled.

Posted Oct 11, 2016
Pros: The friendly staff and beautiful terrain.
Cons: The hot water is powered by solar panels, so on a cloudy day there isn't always give hot water!!
Location: There's hiking, mineral springs, sulfur baths, zip lining, botanical gardens.
This is the perfect place to relax and recharge. The hotel is a plantation where the crops are used for food in the restaurant. Rooms are separate cottages. The pool is multi level built into the volcanic rocks. If you're into quiet, good food and the environment, this place is for you.

Unique experience and still family friendly

Posted Aug 25, 2016 on Hotels
We were very impressed with Fond Doux. We so enjoyed walking to our cottage amid the coca, mango, banana and palm trees, gorgeous flowers and fantastic views. We also spent a lot of time in the small but gorgeous pools. The staff was extremely friendly and they organized some great outings for us at reasonable prices. Our 2 bdrm cottage was spacious and comfortable even without AC and TV (did have really good WiFi). Our boys (ages 10 and 6) had a wonderful experience (shout out to Happiness and Philip for being great with them). It is isolated so consider a car, esp for restaurants (Jardin Cocoa on site is solid but some variety would be good). Overall we truly enjoyed the unique location, local experience and family friendliness. Highly recommended

Amazing lodging!

Posted May 26, 2016 on Hotels
Fond Doux was a paradise. We stayed in a beautiful cottage with breathtaking views. The chefs prepared amazing vegetarian meals for us every day, and every staff member made us feel welcome. The owners were particularly gracious. Sugar Beach (Fond Doux provides a free shuttle every day) is one of the most gorgeous beaches I have ever seen.

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!
