“Very relaxing trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014 via mobile

We travel to a beach at least once a year, and this island is without a doubt the most laid back. we never once got hassled to buy anything, even on the beach! the shuttle will take you down to sugar beach at 10 am and return to get you at 3pm. this is plenty of beach time. Sugar beach is not a long white sand beach you may find at other islands but the view and gentle breeze is very relaxing. make sure you bring water shoes and snorkle kit. i would recommend a shoe like: NeoSport Wetsuits Premium Neoprene 3mm Low Top Pull On Boot.
the beach is a little rocky and the beach breaks down as follows:
the far right (narrow side) is the free public beach and here the chairs are free to sit in, but bring a towel from the hotel.
the middle section of the beach has dark fake leather loungers to rent for $20us/person per day
the far left are white chairs that are part of sugar beach resort, the cost is $50/day and they will sit you towards the back rows as the front "best" seats are for guests.
All in all the public side is great with a towel on the chair and the straw covered areas are very nice. you can always put your towel over on the sandier part of the beach on the sand and not pay for a lounger.

Back to the resort, the rooms are cool! We stayed in Papaya hill top room. they are very local feeling so nothing feels dated. the outdoor showers are great, plenty of room and very nicely tiled. the plunge pool is very small and you will probably not spend much time in it, but the view is definitely better than what you will get at a non hill top room. The Papaya room is the lowest hilltop cottage so i would recomend trying to get one higher up for a bigger view of the valley (please note this hotel is on the back side of the hill from the water). views are still great and the day bed is cool to relax in. there is a safe in the room and all the soap and shampoo you will need.

the pools on the property are very nice, we never swam in them as we always went to the beach or for a hike. the property is very nice, and on day one make sure you hike the trail going out the back of the resort. its a 15 min hike to a great view.

paul tet trail is super close and will have a better view than any other view from the island. we hiked the gros piton and the view was no where close.

we didnt have any issues with bugs. the fan above the bed was adequate for cooling us down at night.

things to note before booking:
this is not a resort, only 12 units so you will have plenty of your own space where ever you are
you will need to take a taxi almost everywhere you want to go, but believe me the cost for a taxi from the resort is so much better than pricing friends paid from other resorts. the two drivers there are Dennis and Marcus. both very friendly and safe drivers. please note that taxi costs will add up fast.
the restaurant is nothing special, the food is defiantly more affordable than other restaurants but we had better meals other places (albeit for a higher price). you must do Ladara for sunset, Fond Doux will call to make the reservation for you and set up your cab.
the beds are not soft, if you are used to a very plush pillow top bed, than you may wake up sore.
they will kind of give you the feeling like they are disappointed when you do not book a trip through the hotel, as i am sure there is a mark up on pricing, but dont feel obligated, as we got exactly what we wanted though research on trip advisor. Both Solomon water taxi and Mystic Man tours were great!

our stay was great. the staff was very helpful. the fruit at breakfast was great, along with the local bakes (try em!). this hotel will not blow you away with a view of the ocean but what it offers is a very relaxing stay (although there are ear plugs in the drawer for guests that are kept up by the sound of animal/frogs/bugs in the plantation). you will have plenty of space and never feel crowed. Soufriere is defiantly the area of the island you want to stay at, as there is lots to do.

for the price it is wonderful, if you are comparing other hotels, here are my thoughts:
Ladara has by far the best view, but you will pay for it, so if you want the view of both Pitons you may cut your trip down by a few days to afford to stay here if you are staying within a budget
Stonefield also has a good view of one of the Pitons from every room like Ladara, it has bigger plunge pools, but the rooms are a little more dated. this place also has a good view for dinner, but rooms and dinner are a little pricier than Fond Doux.

All in all, if you like nature and your own space to enjoy your family or loved ones, Fond Doux is a great hotel, just make sure you explore trials or other places for dinner to enjoy the view you want most while you are on the island. those Pitons are beautiful!

THANK YOU FOR THE RELAXING REVIEW!!

Dear Tyler S,

We appreciate you taking the time to give us such a detailed review, and it was our esteemed pleasure to have hosted you. Thank you for highlighting all the various aspects that contributed to a relaxing and rejuvenating stay. Our lush rainforest environment lends to an intimate getaway where our guests can slip into an effortless state of relaxation and as a small property we are fortunate to have the ability to focus on those unique needs of all of our guests.

The newly constructed Honeymoon Suites (Hilltop Papaya and Hilltop Mango) have become synonymous with honeymooners and we are happy that you enjoyed your cottage and its amenities. You are indeed quite right; they offer some of the best views of the plantation. Most of our guests enjoy hanging around the pool area to relax and capture the breathtaking rainforest views. The Lamontagne’s Trail and Tet Paul Nature Trail are not to be missed as they offer stupendous views of the Pitons.

Thank you for confirming that we do not have a bug issue and that the ceiling fan is indeed adequate for cooling down at nights.

We greatly appreciate the fact that you found our food and beverage offerings to be very affordable. Our breakfast offerings has always been a highlight for our guests especially the local bakes and cocoa tea. We have also noted your comments about the food as this is an area that we are continuing to work on.

We are conveniently located just minutes away from the island’s main attractions and some of which are within walking distance. Thank you for clarifying that our taxi rates are more affordable than the other resorts and that you found our drivers to be very friendly and safe drivers. We take great pleasure in helping our guests engage in their own activities and to also introduce them to places that are special and beautiful. We are really happy to hear that you had a great stay and that the staff were extremely helpful.

Soufriere is indeed the best place to stay on the island as there is so much to see and do including the Sulphur Springs/Drive-in Volcano, Gros Piton, White Sand Beaches, Zip Lining, Tet Paul Nature Trail and Waterfalls. Fond Doux Holiday Plantation is a garden/plantation which is best suited for the soft-adventure traveler who seeks off-the-beaten path natural adventures/attractions, authentic Caribbean cultural experiences and comfortable accommodations. Our facilities and activities attempt to immerse adventure seeking guests in pure nature.

We have also noted your constructive remarks as it is only with your feedback can we address our guests' concerns and work on ways of improvement. The care you have taken to point out so many positive experiences during your stay is most appreciated. It encapsulates all the important elements of Fond Doux Holiday Plantation so accurately and will serve as an excellent guide for persons who may be considering staying with us. Thank you for taking the time to share feedback on your recent stay in paradise and based on your comments, we are certain that you will return for another relaxing experience. Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you again.

Best Regards,
Eroline and Lyton Lamontagne.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

Before I arrived at Fond Doux, I had high expectations after reading so many favourable reviews on trip and from browsing their website. Within 15 minutes of arrival, I realised that Fond Doux was as special as the reviews suggest and their website does not do the resort enough justice. In my humble opinion, Fond Doux is one of the top Boutique resorts in the world in terms of the natural beauty and the standard of the cottages.

From the very first minute we arrived, all the staff made us feel very welcome and throughout our stay we were treated like their extended family rather than just resort guest. In particular, Katrina and Kendall were awesome and a real credit to the resort. Eroline and Lyton (owners) were absolutely lovely and always around to say hello and make sure we were happy with everything. It’s so nice to be at a resort knowing the owners are in the thick of everything. It really showed in how well the resort was run.

We stayed in the Hill Side Coconut Cottage. The cottage is perched on the hillside overlooking the Plantation. The Cottage did not have or need AC. We sometimes used the ceiling fan but because of the way the cottage is made, it was always very cool and comfortable. The Cottage also did not have a TV but who needs a TV when you are in paradise. Not even my Girlfriend who is TVholic missed it. Surprisingly considering we were half way up a hill surrounded by trees, the cottage was connected with reasonably fast WiFi (fast enough to stream youtube vids). All the cottages are unique so recommend to look on their website and choose the right cottage for you. Although I didn’t stay in it (maybe next time) I personally recommend the Angelina Cottage. Can’t put into words how amazing this cottage is. It was so special, I choose the room balcony as the location to propose to my Girlfriend (she said yes).

The only bad thing I can say about the resort is the standard of food. By international standards, it’s very average. However, I was also not impressed with the food served at other restaurants on the Island (Hotel Chocolate, La Haut etc.) so I think food in general in St Lucia is not for me.

Overall, I highly recommend Fond Doux. It’s a very special resort and can’t wait to return and stay in Angelina Cottage.

Room Tip: Has to be Angelina Cottage!

This was a fantastic location for a peaceful natural Holiday. From the moment we arrived we knew it was a special environment. The staff where all extremely friendly and accommodating and our cottage situated overlooking the plantation was exquisite. The naturally man made cottage was perfect including a lovely four poster bed, outside shower, a plunge pool, veranda with a view to kill. The area is perfect for experiencing St Lucia at its best from the Piton Mountains, volcanic springs, beautiful beaches, snorkelling and the magic of the rainforest. The favourite tour we experienced was the rainforest walk, our tour guide was Mango who gave a great guided tour of the forest explaining the natural medical remedies and the wildlife including the Amazonian Parrot (we saw three). We also visited a cascading waterfall which was extremely refreshing. The tour was made even more magical when Mango took us to his farm where we picked vegetables which was then cooked by the hotel for our evening meal. We then visited his home where we had fish cakes cooked by his Auntie.
There are not many hotels if not any that the owners buy drinks, chat and introduce the rest of their family to you but that is what Lyton did during the Easter Sunday party. The whole staff made it special from Catrina the organiser and tour specialist, Kendall at the bar and Philip who gave us a plantation tour. Our whole experience was magical and we will return

Room Tip: The Cottage mango was an excellent room. The plunge pool and elevated position gave it that extra sp...

BEAUTIFUL REVIEW - MOST APPRECIATED!!!

Dear Mark R,

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with us and others. It is always a pleasure to hear that we have succeeded in delivering another memorable vacation as we genuinely strive to deliver a special and natural vacation experience in a truly authentic location.

We are delighted to read that you found the team here at Fond Doux to be extremely accommodating and friendly. We try our best to get to know every guest as we enjoy meeting people from all over the globe. The Hilltop Mango is indeed one of the most beautiful cottages on the plantation and we are happy that you found it to be perfect; the views from there are to die for. Fond Doux is the ideal base for visiting Soufriere as it is in proximity to most of the major attractions. We are happy to read that you enjoyed the rainforest hike and that it was indeed one of your favorite tours. Saint Lucians are generally known for their friendliness and warmth and it is heartwarming to read that Mango welcomed you into his home where you experience St. Lucian hospitality first hand.

You are indeed quite correct, there are not many hotels where guests get the opportunity to meet face to face with the owners where they can chat, have drinks and to be introduce to our family members. We try our best to ensure that all guests feel special and part of our Fond Doux family. We will be sure to pass on your encouraging feedback to the entire team especially Katrina, Kendal and Philip for creating such a magical and special experience for you. We are happy that Fond Doux Holiday Plantation was able to do its magic once again.

Thank you for your commitment to return and for your unwavering support of our plantation paradise.

Best Regards,
Eroline and Lyton Lamontagne

We had a nice time here. Enjoyed exploring the island, it's a great base, coming back to the private chalet style homes surrounded by nature was amazing.
Down sides, dinner was mediocre, baths need a bit of sprucing up, hot tub did not warm up, foot paths need better night time lighting
Upsides, great sleeping surrounded by nature, no need for air conditioning. Privacy,

March 30th-April 5th. My Mom and I stayed for a week. We had the time of our lives exploring the surroundings; it is so peaceful being surrounded by nature. The sounds you hear all throughout the property from nature is like being in paradise; you can't help but feel transported to a piece of heaven. The staff was very courteous, we felt welcomed as soon as we arrived. We highly recommend this place. If you're looking for a place to relax that's surrounded by nature and friendly people, you can't go wrong in chosing to stay here, you'll be glad you did!. Carla E. USA

Wow, what a wonderful evening we spent at this hideaway in the rainforest. We splurged for one night after "roughing it" for one week in St. Lucia with no regrets! Excellent service and a beautiful private cottage to stay in. 100% recommended.

Room Tip: "Angelina" is a large cottage for 5 guests, "Bamboo" and several others sleep 2.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in the Cinnamon cottage for a week. The surroundings were amazing and we enjoyed the privacy each individual cottage, with its own private porch, allowed us. The staff and owners, who always had a smile for us, were so accommodating. Every request we had was catered to - from extra drinks in our room to the rental of a vehicle. Fond Doux looked after it all. We also had arranged for us a wonderful day exploring the island with our guide Dennis. Very memorable. I highly recommend this wonderful slice of paradise to anyone looking for an exceptional vacation. We hope to return!
