We have just returned from St Lucia where we spent a week of our trip at Fond Doux. I would return to the island just to stay again at this special place. We stayed in hilltop Guava which is a heck of a climb (especially after dinner!) but so, so worth it. The view is truly spectacular and the beautiful... More

My wife and I spent fives days at this amazing plantation paradise. The grounds are beautiful, the cottages are amazing, and the staff are excellent!

My time spent at Fond Doux, although short, was a tremendous experience. The true essence of simplicity and sustainability were realized when I stepped foot onto this cocoa plantation hideaway. The staff are attentive. Rooms and property settings are natural yet inviting. I enjoyed the interaction with ownership and management. True passion and pride was conveyed. A secluded place with...

We split our time between the north and south parts of the island - would recommend staying in the south. This gives you a good base to see a mix of things on the island, and a good choice of accommodation. Fond Doux is a great plantation resort - nice individual cottages in a rainforest setting. There are good facilities,... More

Fond Doux is a great choice for travelers who do not need to be right on the beach. It is set on a working plantation which is part of its charm. The tour of the grounds was very interesting and we learned about many native fruits and spices. You will see a fantastic view of the Pitons and Sugar Beach... More
