We were allocated the room above the reception, which is in a separate building. This room is rather small and there is no stove in the „kitchenette“, which was awkward as we had bought groceries and wanted to cook. In addition, there is no table of any kind in the room and on the narrow veranda – they seem to expect you to put the tea cup on the floor. When we complained about these things, a receptionist offered us another room which was unoccupied for 2 days at an additional cost of US$ 115. When the manager heard that we refused this, she gave us the room at the same rate as the other one. It was room no 7, which is the cottage west of the main building. It is two-storey accommodation with a big lounge and adequately equipped kitchen (with stove) on the ground floor and a bedroom and bathroom in the first. There was no table of any mentionable size, but a low table (our knees did not fit under it, apparently a baggage rest), was put on the balcony. So we had to carry crockery and food up the narrow iron spiral stairs. There would be plenty of space for a table and chairs in the corner of the lounge next to the kitchen – I hope the hosts will read this and improve the situation. After two days we moved to room no 3 on the first floor of the main building (it seems that there had been a cancellation). This room was spacious with a big balcony and chairs and a sizeable round table, but no stove. All rooms are old and cheaply renovated, though generally cosy and pleasant. The rooms as such are not worth the rates charged – you are mainly paying for the view, which is admittedly stunning. We used the free shuttly service to Soufriere and back on two days. On the way back the driver was late 10 minutes on the first and 20 minutes on the second day. Not very pleasant when you are tired after a hike in the hot afternoon!We do not want to put off anyone from La Haut Resort, but do not recommend the room above the reception. If you decide to stay at La Haut, be prepared for the odd inconvenience. However, the staff seems to be willing to give remedy to complaints if you insist. Written by a Swiss guest, 66 of age.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- La Haut or Le Haut literally means "the height" in Patois, a French dialect that is commonly spoken by St. Lucians. La Haut sits on a hill overlooking Soufriere, one of the oldest towns in St Lucia.Part of a 52-acre former coconut and cocoa estate, the main Guest House possesses a unique history. Nearly 100 years old, the main guesthouse was originally a cocoa house used for fermenting and drying cocoa beans hand-picked on the estate. In 1995, the building was converted and refurbished into a 6-room guesthouse. The nearby cottage was a former copra house where coconuts were once processed.Although the rich aroma of cocoa beans no longer wafts through the air, at La Haut you can enjoy the perfume-scented, tropical fauna or the salty breeze that blows off the Caribbean Sea. ... more less
