My family stayed at La Haut Plantation in January of 2006. We had a bad experience with the hotel we booked on line so we drove up the coast of St. Lucia looking for a reasonably priced hotel that met our needs. We found it at La Haut!
The hotel was clean, and friendly. We were known to the staff by our names, not our room numbers. The hotel was small enough that we met many other travelers who stayed there as well.
The views from the hotel were remarkable. Although the property is not directly on the beach, there was a daily shuttle to the beach.
The food was fantastic. We ate at other restaurants in the area, but found the food at La Haut to be some of the best.
I would recomend this hotel to the traveler who likes a friendly, quiet atmosphere. We did have a rental car and found this to be the best way to travel the island since most tourist sights are distant, and up and down some significant inclines.
- 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
