I'm genuinely drawn to this place! The well placed cottages that are carefully inserted into the hillside and discreetly blend into the canopy of the trees....a most awesome way to watch the sunshine rise from the hammock on the verandah. Being an early-riser, a couple of mornings after a good sleep, I just lay in that hammock and wondered why... More

We stayed at Fond Doux Holiday Plantation at the end of April, and loved everything about the place. We decided to stay here after reading all the reviews on trip advisor, and the reasonable price. The great reviews were spot on. The cottage, Hillside Guava, was wonderful. It was spacious, clean, and the view was amazing from the balcony. The... More

Thank you for your very kind review and comments on Fond Doux Holiday Plantation. Hillside Guava being perched above the main body of the plantation does have a lovely view for you to enjoy, day or night. The Piton trail is also a firm favourite among our guests. Very pleased to read that you took time out to see Soufriere... More

Wonderful People, laid back but good service. The old plantation is being transformed into a BEAUTIFUL Eco-type resort. The cottages jutting out of the treetops in the jungle are mostly on the sides of the mountain. There are a few cottages and a plantation house lower in the plantation as well as a wonderful restaraunt, Jardin Cocoa

We appreciate your time in writing your review. We do have some great value all inclusive packages but we also have the traditional accommodation. Becoming a member of Green Globe International certainly helped put a “stamp” on what we are trying to do at Fond Doux Holiday Plantation. Our natural environment is very important to us.

Came here on a last-minute trip and stayed for three nights in the Bamboo Cottage. Everyone was very helpful with setting up transportation and excursions - even with last minute changes because of the weather. The staff was courteous and very eager to make my stay as comfortable as possible. Loved all the food at the restaurant - especially the... More

We spent five nights in the Hillside Guava this June for our wedding, and it was an experience we will surely never forget. We began planning our wedding with Fond Doux last year, and were amazed with the personalized and timely responses we received from their staff. Indira was amazing in helping us plan out and organize all of the... More

Thank you for your review of your wedding and stay at Fond Doux Holiday Plantation. We try very hard to give a personal service, weddings can take a lot of time and planning to organise on your side, and it was great to read that everything went just as you imagined it and more. The grounds are looking very colourful... More

The plantation tour was brilliant. My husband and I had our own guide who was very attentive. Following the tour we had an excellent value gourmet lunch. Highly recommended and have told all of our family and friends. We have family living on the island so we'll definitely be back

This place has passion. We had such fun staying at the Fond Doux for a recent friends' wedding! The staff is tremendous and they seemed to appreciate our antics and humor.

This was our first trip in the Caribeans and we had the most wonderful experience. The cottages are very beautiful and spacious and right in the middle of the magnificent trees and flowers of the plantation, with the exact distance between them allowing you to enjoy some privacy without feeling lonely. The food is great, either cooked and served to... More
