3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I have only recently started reviewing my trips for Trip Advisor, but St Lucia is the now 14th island in the Caribs I have visited. I suspect that if you were to be asked for an iconic image of the Caribs, you would say The Pitons. So everybody wants to be there or thereabouts and everything within ten miles is... More

My boyfriend and I visited Fond Doux in October 2014. I do not remember the name of the cottage, but it may have been Papaya. The best thing about this place is the staff! The staff was very helpful and kind. I really do hope that they're treated well by the owners/management as they deserve to be. The food was... More

I spent a solid week researching St Lucia and given its size we moved around 3 resorts in 2 weeks to ensure we covered the entire island. Having now done it I would highly suggest just heading to soufriere and either staying put or launching from there! I don't generally write reviews and safe to say we like high end/boutique....

Absolutely loved our stay here - we didn't want a pretentious hotel or busy resort. We wanted somewhere to relax and feel no pressure. We definitely chose right!  The place is an absolute gem, full of charm. We stayed for 4 nights in the Treehouse - a very spacious room with a good sized outside seating area. Huge 4 poster... More

Fond Doux is ideally located in St Lucia, close to nice beaches (Sugar beach) and attractions (sulfur springs, waterfall, botanical garden). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the location on a plantation makes it unique and memorable. There is a nice pool area with library where we spend a few hours, the staff was very helpful and friendly, the breakfasts are... More

We stayed for one night to reduce the travelling whilst visiting the south, we had previously had lunch the day before and enjoyed so much we were really looking forward to our stay. We stayed in Angelina which was massive! As our stay was so short we did not really make the most of this beautiful plantation house. Whilst it... More

We stayed at Fond Doux for one night on the 4th January 2015. The welcome was first class. Our baggage was taken to our beautiful cottage, whilst we enjoyed a welcome drink. After settling into our accommodation, we really enjoyed our evening meal along with marvellous entertainment provided by a local band. Everyone at Fond Doux was prepared to go... More

A water pistol on the breakfast table. A Coqui frog in the bathroom singing its "Cook-ie" mating call. A gentle Lucian breeze wafting over me while I shower (from the partly open roof). Where am I? Most definitely in St Lucia. Not a generic resort. This is a 5 star EXPERIENCE. Much more than just a place to stay. At... More
