I recently stayed at this lovely hotel for a quick get away to have some quiet time alone. I was pleasantly amazed at my experience from beginning to end. First of all the owners and the staff were genuinely friendly and helpful. The owners (a lovely local couple) took the time to greet and spend time with every guest that... More

Magnificent Resort with beautiful cottages. My husband and I chose to celebrate our second wedding anniversary at Fond Doux having read so many positive reviews on Tripadvisor and we must say our expectations were exceeded. We had a quick check in, no hassle and the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. We were also offered a refreshing welcome drink upon... More

On paper Fond Doux should be brilliant, but I came away disappointed. When you compare it to what else you can get for the money, then I have to score it as "poor". On the positive, the staff were very friendly and accommodating and it's certainly picturesque being nestled in the St. Lucia rainforest. It's also well placed for the... More

My husband and I spent three wonderful nights in the Nutmeg Hilltop Cottage. The cottage was private, spacious, clean and well equipped with a fridge, kettle and coffee maker. Wifi was great. The outdoor shower was wonderful! Breakfast was very good and dinner in the restaurant was great too. Walking the grounds is wonderful with lots of gorgeous flowers and... More

I could not have picked a better resort to vacation at in St. Lucia! We loved the privacy and beautiful views that our cottage provided us with. We enjoyed just relaxing on our balcony at night and listening to the sounds of nature. In addition Fond Doux is so unique in that it allows you to experience authentic St. Lucia-... More

Our stay at Fond Doux was perfect! The staff there is as friendly and inviting as i've ever seen. The location in Soufriere is the best on the island because it's near the sulphur springs, the Pitons! and Sugar Beach. Finally, the grounds at Fond Doux are fantastic as you wake up in the middle of the rainforest every morning... More

Fond Doux is a gem, nestled within a beautiful rainforest area of St Lucia. With possibly the most friendly staff on the island, and excellent food and drinks, you are sure to enjoy your stay. Rainforest views are everywhere and while you feel totally secluded, you are still near a lot of the south attractions like Gros Piton, Diamond Waterfall,... More

This was our first time to St. Lucia and we loved Fond Doux. When we arrived we were greeted with friendly faces and rum punch! Our 2 bedroom cottage (Cocoa Tree) was beautiful.
