I stopped by for lunch on Sunday and did a comprehensive tour of the plantation. I had been there before but never ventured all the way in. To my amazement Fond Doux has breathtaking rooms that portray a romantic statement. The three infininty pools are secluded amongst the trees, its like something from a documentry from the amazon jungle. A... More

We had a very good time in Fond Doux, we stayed in the Papaya cottage which had a fantastic view over the plantation and the rainforest. You basically had no one around and felt as if being alone midst in a rainforest, away from all the hustle and bustle. We did have quite a bit of rain here and there,... More

Just had a wonderful stay at this coco plantation! This a nature lover's paradise. Our unique, private cottage was spacious and thoughtfully decorated. The outdoor rain shower was a special feature. Awoke each morning to a wonderful chorus of birds. Hummingbirds, beautiful fruit and flowers everywhere. Did the plantation tour (Philip) & half day local tour (Denis). Both very thoughtful... More

Seeking respite from a snowy New England winter, 2 friends set off to St. Lucia for fun in the sun. Our first stop was Fond Doux Plantation & Resort and it was beyond expectation.

Highly recommend this hotel (which is a set of plantation cottages, all at some distance from each other) in a quite lovely rainforest / cocoa plantation). The staff are lovely, quite natural and un-stressed. The owners are local St Lucian. I met the boss guy, and he's a very good and interesting bloke. This is a place to be comfortable... More

My sister and I spent 5 nights here for a mid-winter getaway. I chose Fond Doux based on its reviews on Trip Advisor, and our expectations were met and exceeded.

We stayed here for 5 nights and really enjoyed it. It is about 3 miles outside Soufriere in the middle of the forest. We were in the African Tulip cottage, on the lower side of the plantation site. All the cottages are dotted around the plantation, giving you privacy in a gorgeous setting. The main room was very large and... More
