Carolyn and Michael We stayed in the Hillside Mango cottage at Fond Doux and were thoroughly delighted, with both the cottage and the view. The staff at Fond Doux were superb, and as other reviews have noted the owners were present and friendly. Especially worth recognizing at Fond Doux are their drivers, the restaurant staff and the housekeeping staff. Special... More

My wife and I travelled to St. Lucia for our honeymoon recently, and it was certainly an amazing and memorable experience. We decided to spend our week on the island at Fond Doux, and we certainly have no regrets about doing so. First off, the property is beautiful, and very well maintained! There are numerous paths where one can venture... More

We have just returned from St Lucia where we spent a week of our trip at Fond Doux. I would return to the island just to stay again at this special place. We stayed in hilltop Guava which is a heck of a climb (especially after dinner!) but so, so worth it. The view is truly spectacular and the beautiful... More

My wife and I spent fives days at this amazing plantation paradise. The grounds are beautiful, the cottages are amazing, and the staff are excellent!

My time spent at Fond Doux, although short, was a tremendous experience. The true essence of simplicity and sustainability were realized when I stepped foot onto this cocoa plantation hideaway. The staff are attentive. Rooms and property settings are natural yet inviting. I enjoyed the interaction with ownership and management. True passion and pride was conveyed. A secluded place with...

We split our time between the north and south parts of the island - would recommend staying in the south. This gives you a good base to see a mix of things on the island, and a good choice of accommodation. Fond Doux is a great plantation resort - nice individual cottages in a rainforest setting. There are good facilities,... More

Fond Doux is a great choice for travelers who do not need to be right on the beach. It is set on a working plantation which is part of its charm. The tour of the grounds was very interesting and we learned about many native fruits and spices. You will see a fantastic view of the Pitons and Sugar Beach... More

This hotel was so friendly and warm, the staff were extremely attentive and the service was excellent. I rarely return to the same place twice, but I would very much like to visit Fond Doux a second and third time. The surroundings were so special, at night the sound of the crickets and other critters were loud but restful. I... More

We went to St Lucia for a weekend gateway. Both of us (myself and my wife) had mixed feelings about Fond Doux Plantation. Its in the south of the island and fairly close to the airport.
