We stayed at the plantation for 4 nights and were made very welcome by all the staff including the owners which made the stay that little bit more personal and special as they also live in this little paradise. Although the resort is isolated they have there own taxi service, so no need to wait for a taxi and there... More

One of our party had a birthday dinner and the resort went all out with a specially decorated table, a beautiful cake, and a really special dinner. The resort itself is beautiful and the people there are really nice. It has individual cottages that make the place a dream for a group because you can have solitude or a group... More

This hotel is set in the most beautiful grounds. The accommodation is in separate traditional houses (we were in Cinnamon Cottage) - each is very private and secluded. Ours had a verandha where we could sit in rocking chairs and watch hummingbirds, bullfinches, bananaquits and other birds feeding on banana flowers just a yard or two away. It is a... More

We stayed at fond doux plantation for two nights. I want to introduce my partner to a different type of holiday. Fond doux was perfect, rustic authentic, peaceful serene. We were lost in nature for two days. The creatures of the night were a little scary at times and a little loud but we loved it. We dined in resort... More

The magic of Fond Doux Plantation and Resort is that the beautiful dream of the gracious, hard-working owners became a reality. It became my reality too! Plunge lovely, masterfully-designed cottages into a lush tropical rainforest- botanical garden drenched in flowers and exotic fruits and add a working cacao plantation into the mix and you will live in a dream come...

We had an amazing trip to St.Lucia and stayed at Fond Doux in March 2014. The property is like a jungle hideaway, with lots of hidden pathways and lookouts over the rainforest. We visited St.Lucia to get married on the beach and the staff at Fond Doux (Eroline, Liton, Indira) helped make it very easy and uncomplicated, which was exactly... More

We only stayed for 2 days but would have loved to stay a lot longer. It's a fascinating hotel set on a working plantation with stunning beauty all round. My guess is that's it's as eco as it gets. The villas, which are the hotel rooms, are all collected and saved examples of lovely old architecture from around the island,... More

Spent the weekend at the Fond Doux Plantation. Arrived from Hewanorra International Airport (Saint Lucia) - UVF. The resort in 45 minutes drive from the airport. The Hotel does offer shuttle service for a cost. We decided to rent a car as taxi service on the island is very expensive and it gave us the flexibility to move around. The... More
