My wife and I were in St Lucia a few years ago and stayed on this property. We had our own little cabins on the side of the hill. The views were gorgeous and privacy abounded. There is a charming shared pool area and the plantation is a working coco producer. So be sure a diskette tour and try the... More

We enjoyed a short break at Fond Doux to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and stayed in the honeymoon suite (Hillside Papaya) which was a wonderful experience. The cottage was beautifully decorated on arrival with flowers and flowers spelling out 'HAPPY 25th ANNIVERSARY' was a lovely welcome. The complementary chilled champagne made it extra special.

The first thing you realise about this resort is it's beautiful location sat with the St Lucian rainforest region, this was our 4th visit to St Lucia and apart from fabulous food the accommodation fits in place with its plantation history; one factor though the resort has kept hidden, until now, are the hidden gems of the staff themselves, who...

The Fond Doux Resort is a working cocoa plantation, situated in a forest, on the side of a mountain 5 miles from the town of Soufriere. It's an amazing experience to spend time in a quiet secluded place (relatively speaking) and to experience forest dwelling. The cottage we rented (Cocoa Tree House) is a two bedroom, two bathroom cottage, with... More

Our honeymoon in St. Lucia was amazing―and with all of the great things about it, the single biggest highlight for us was staying at the Fond Doux Plantation. We actually booked only part of our stay at Fond Doux and the remainder at a more traditional resort on the northern end of the island, but there is no comparison between... More

We stayed at Fond Doux for four nights in June 2015 in The Cocoa Tree House. The plantation is lush, green, and absolutely beautiful. The staff is beyond helpful--they are kind, friendly, and very good at what they do. The hiking trail up to the view of Gros Piton is steep, but definitely worth the energy and time. The area...

First time to St Lucia and the island and particularly the Fond Doux Resort were stunning. We stayed in a two bedroom cottage and like the other cottages it was nestled in its own corner of the rainforest plantation. Stunning location. The cottage itself was very well appointed and very clean. All the staff were very helpful and extremely friendly.... More
