Myself, my husband and our two year old son stayed in Banana Tree for a week. We have the most wonderful time! The cottage was really private (we didnt need to worry about our son making noise early in the morning) the view was lovely and the surrounding flauna and flora was beautiful. We loved having a coffee on our... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this magical place in the Soufriere area. The gardens were so lush and our Avocado cottage was like a dream. I think it was the soft, fine linens and beautiful mosquito nets we had. I travelled with my two young daughters and they felt very comfortable skipping around the property, as did I. I... More

My boyfriend and I were at fond doux for five days. It ended up being the best vacation we've had, thanks in no small part to the wonderful staff and accommodation at fond doux.

Fond Doux, tucked away in the rainforest in Soufriere is truly a gem. The property salutes a rich cultural heritage as it presents agriculture, organic foods, cultural dishes ( good local breakfast and stunning exotic evening fare) and all wrapped up in service with a smile. There are trails and tours for the adventurous all willingly arranged by the staff... More

You're probably reading these reviews for the very same reasons that lead us to Fond Doux. We wanted to try St. Lucia but were intimidated by the prices. Soufriere is clearly the place to stay, but the prices are generally on the high side. But then I noticed this place... sitting very high in the TripAdvisor ratings for Soufriere. So... More

We stayed for a week at the Fond Doux Plantation, on the island's west side, midway between the international airport and Castries, the largest town on St. Lucia.
