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

My husband and I stayed in the Hilltop Mango for our Honeymoon and we couldn't be any happier. Overlooking the rainforest with a personal infinity pool and (in my opinion) the best view of all the rooms. The outdoor shower was an unexpected treat and so much fun!

We chose to stay at Fond Doux based on its unique offerings. The idea of having our own private cottage on a cocoa plantation sounded like fun and we weren't disappointed. We like unique vacations away from the standard all-inclusive resorts. If you are looking for a more unique, personalized experience then you should consider Fond Doux. Truly, the people... More
