“Simply a Caribbean Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

We had a wonderful time! What makes Fond Doux the ideal place to stay is that the owners are on-site and they truly care about the experience of every one of their guests and the staff feels this way to. Here are a few highlights.

People: As noted the owners and staff care about their guests, they are invested in helping you relax and enjoy yourself. They get to know you and anticipate your needs. In the restaurant Regina, Luska, and Kendall were all friendly and kind, making us feel like part of the family. For most of our stay Happiness shuttled us around the island but he is more than a driver, even more than a tour guide. Happiness understands how to enhance the guest experience he knows the big and small things that make your visit more enjoyable. He also watched out for us, he gave us insider tips for each site he took us to, set us up with the best tour guides, and somehow he never kept us wait to be picked up. He also went above and beyond in several ways such as loaning us money when we left the resort without enough cash for proper tipping and running to us with bottles of water when he learned we became dehydrated while hiking the Gros Piton. We can’t thank Happiness enough for all he did for us. By the end of our stay we felt like we had made several new friends including Lyton and Eroline, the owners.

Villas: Reading the reviews prior to booking our stay at Fond Doux we formed the impression that one of the hillside villas is a must. This is not entirely true. Yes the hillside villas are amazing and more than worth the upgrade fee but the lower villas are lovely and comfortable even without air-conditioning. Due to a booking mix up we spent a few nights in both areas. We loved our hillside villa “Papaya” but were comfortable in the lower “Cinnamon” villa. Hillside benefits: view, plunge pool, outdoor shower, a little more private, and more spacious. Both villas were clean, had comfortable beds, and nice cool breezes.

Amenities: The pool is lovely, quiet, and a poolside drink or lunch is just a phone call away. We enjoyed a couple of massages of good quality. My husband is a massage therapist so we have a good frame of reference on massage – these were worth the cost, not advanced techniques but solid deep work that was beneficial to our overworked hiking muscles. The touring package also worth the cost, allows for a good balance between island highlights, adventure activities, and R&R. We enjoyed the food at the resort. Breakfast is simple but abundant and dinners highlight the island cuisine. We began to refer to the food as a “plantation to plate” experience. All meals were prepared with fruits, vegetables, and spices that were just picked on the property and overflowing with flavor. We had fun exploring ways to expand this concept with the owners.

There is more I can say but much longer the review will become tedious – in short highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a real Caribbean experience over the standards that a chain hotel offers.

Room Tip: The Papaya villa is in a good location just off the pool and has great views.

THANK YOU FOR THE SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL CARIBBEAN EXPERIENCE REVIEW!!
Dear Rfish,
Thank you for sharing your thoughts on your recent stay at Fond Doux Holiday Plantation with the rest of the world. We are delighted that you were able to experience our resort and that ultimately you enjoyed your time in St.Lucia.
We take great pride in this unique and authentic St.Lucian product and as corporate leaders in the community we are very passionate and concerned about our guests’ experiences. As proud owners of this property we try our best to meet and spend quality time with our guests. We try our best to attend to the needs of our guests and therefore our team will go above and beyond in any way possible. We are happy that the team made you felt like part of the family and that by the end of your stay you felt like you had made several new friends. We are glad that you picked up on the genuine friendliness and warmth of the Fond Doux team and we will be sure to pass on your wonderful comments to the entire team including Regina, Lusca, Kendall and Happiness.
All our cottages are uniquely designed and thank you for clarifying that as much as the hilltop villas are amazing so too are the lower villas. It is gratifying to read that though you loved the Hilltop Papaya, you found the Cinnamon cottage to be more comfortable. We sincerely apologize for the mix-up with your accommodation and we are indeed happy that despite this you enjoyed the experience in both cottages.
We are delighted that you enjoyed the pool, couples massage and tour package which were all worth the cost. Your positive comments about the food are most interesting, and underscore the dilemma which we are often faced with in terms of cuisine style and service. We are constantly trying to keep on top of guest preferences, as more and more people are self-professed “foodies” and become more opinionated about what they expect.
It was a pleasure connecting with you both and thank you for all of your valuable contributions. We thank you for your inspirational “plantation to plate” which we can improve upon.It was indeed an honor to have guests like you here and thank you wholeheartedly for making Fond Doux Holiday plantation your vacation choice. We look forward to welcoming you back for yet another authentic St.Lucian experience.
Best Regards,
Eroline and Lyton Lamontagne

This is a true gem. Forget the chain resorts - grab a hillside cottage at Fond Doux and experience what St. Lucia is truly supposed to be like.

Truly memorable, truly unique place - amazing location, great service, really personal touch.

Room Tip: We stayed in Guava - but all of the hillside rooms are a cut above. Go for those.

We loved our hillside coconut room. It was very private and the steps up to it are worth the climb for the great views. Truly relaxing place with great local staff which makes you feel more like part of the island. Would definitely visit again.

THANK YOU FOR THE RAIN FOREST HIDEAWAY REVIEW!!

Dear Rabstar32,

Thank you for taking the time to share your wonderful reviews with us! You have certainly captured the essence of Saint Lucia in your short and sweet review.

We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay in the Hilltop Coconut Cottage and that you found it to be very private. Our spectacular location is ideal for one to unwind, relax and escape the everyday living. We are indeed proud of our heritage and culture and we take great pride in sharing it with our guests. We are therefore delighted to read that the team at Fond Doux made you feel like part of the island.

It was a pleasure to be of service to you and we do hope to welcome you back to our Saint Lucian Gem.

My wife and I visited Fond Doux for our Honeymoon.

We sprung for one of the Hillside cabins (Mango) and it was very worth it. We saw more hummingbirds per day than I saw in my lifetime prior to the trip. The outdoor shower was tremendously relaxing (particularly when it rained...the contrast of the hot shower and cool rain was surreal). It was a bit cool (mid May) to take advantage of our private plunge pool, but I am sure it's a god-send in the summer time. The bed is enormous, comfortable (if you are into firm mattresses), and the mosquito netting makes for a very romantic canopy. We spent a good amount of time just lounging on the day bed on the porch of the cabin and watching the palms sway - it was sublime.

Must dos while you are there:
Tet Paul Nature Trail (it's close, cheap, and offers some of the best photo ops of the island).
Mud bath & sulfur springs at the active volcano.
Couple's Massage.
Sunset Cruise.
The Beach - (we went to Anse Mamin...highly recommend).

As far as the resort goes, Breakfast and Lunch were fantastic, Dinner was consistently good, but never incredible. We sprang for the inclusive package and felt very satisfied.

We fully intend to return on our 10th anniversary.


Helpful hints:

Bring several hundred dollars in small bills - just about everyone is working for tips and breaking large foreign bills might require a trip into town to a bank

The roads are hilly, curvy, and sometimes bumpy: if you get car sick, bring medicine or reconsider

The local spiced rum is described as 'Lucian Viagra' and we can confirm it's efficacy ;)

When you're there, you're on 'Island Time': if you are the type to get bent out of shape when things take a while, then either learn to chill out or pick a different destination

Room Tip: Hillside Mango - it involves a lot of steps (equivalent of a 3 flight walkup), but if you are spry t...

The perfect location to spend my 50th birthday! My husband and I spent 7 days on the beautiful island of St. Lucia with the most beautiful and sincere people at Fond Doux Holiday Plantation. We immediately felt like part of the Fond Doux family. Lyton and Eroline run a very special, one of kind, heritage plantation with top notch customer service. Every host at Fond Doux went out of their way to get to know us in order to make sure all of our needs were taken care of during our visit (from excursions, to food, to our cottage and more).

Fond Doux is a very special and unique destination. There are 12 adorable cottages in the tropical rain forest where it truly is tranquil and private. My husband and I stayed in the Treehouse our first 5 days and in the Hilltop Guava our last 2 days. If you can’t do steps, stay in the ground cottages. Treehouse is 31 steps and Hilltop Guava is 33 steps. It is a workout but so worth the view and the breeze is so comfortable at night. The Fond Doux grounds are kept very clean by the wonderful staff. It is visually beautiful by day and vocally beautiful by night. Yes-- there are lizards, geckos, and bugs but we truly were not bothered by any (other than a few mosquito bites but they love me everywhere I go). If you want an ocean view, air conditioning and a hopping resort feel--this is not for you.

Lyton, Eroline and all of their wonderful staff is the #1 reason we will return to Fond Doux. It all started with the office staff in answering all my questions via email very quickly when I booked our reservations. Then all of their help during our stay. Thank you Eugenia, Indira, Tara and Evancia. Upon our arrival to the island, Happiness waved us down at the airport with a smile, had a cold water ready for us and told us about our surroundings on our 45 minute drive to Fond Doux. Katrina greeted us upon our arrival at Fond Doux with their delicious Rum Punch while we waited for our luggage to be delivered to our cottage. We highly recommend the Plantation Tour on your first full day where you will learn about the plantation, the cocoa processing, and the produce harvested on the plantation. Our tour guide, Philip, certainly made it extra special with his humble fun nature where you will see, taste and smell the organic wonders of this plantation. Philip surprised us by the pool one day with coconut water….such a special treat and it was such a pleasure to live through his adventure to the Petit Piton with pictures. Thank you Philip! Katrina went above and beyond by taking the lead with my husband, in making my birthday extra special. I had a wonderful birthday! Thank you Katrina! Kendal, a pure gentleman bartender, learned our favorite drinks very quickly….loved it! Thank you Kendal! Josephine always greeted us with her wonderful smile and made our cottage beautiful daily. It was such a pleasure to get to know about her and her family. I loved the flower greetings on the bed…super nice touch! Thank you Josephine! When we had breakfast, lunch and/or dinner, we were always taken care of by the wonderful staff. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating. There is just too many to list everyone’s name. Thank you to ALL! Loved the soups, salads and any dishes that used the fruit and vegetables from the plantation. Absolutely delicious. My favorites were the fresh mango, pumpkin, plantains, banana pancakes, local bakes, cocoa tea, tropical salad with grilled shrimp and the Creole lunch buffet. Yum! I loved to be able to order lunch and drinks by the pool. So relaxing. We did so many wonderful things while in St. Lucia…thanks to the assistance of the Fond Doux staff.

A special thank you to Lyton and Eroline for the time you took out of your busy days to get to know us and to share your life with us. Thanks to you and your staff, we had an absolutely wonderful vacation. We will be back!

I am rejuvenated and appreciate that life can be simple.

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at Fond Doux Holiday Plantation in St. Lucia, and we left the island feeling that our honeymoon had, in fact, been perfect.

We were picked up at the airport by Dennis, a kind, nurturing gentleman who, in a very short period of time, became dear to us. Not only did he drive us to many of our adventures around Soufriere and Choiseul, he shared with us some of his personal experiences as a lifelong resident of the area, gave us sagely advice on how to get around, and generally watched out for us, making sure we had everything we needed to have a lovely experience. When driving us to Gros Piton, Dennis pointed out the various fruit trees growing along the roadside and, upon spotting a cashew tree, stopped the van and plucked for us a cashew nut/apple. Did you know that a cashew comes attached to a fruit that has a uniquely spicy and citrus taste? Neither did we until Dennis took the time to share it with us.

Our hillside cottage (Guava) was beautiful, entirely unique, and a perfect honeymoon accommodation. Upon our arrival, we discovered that Fond Doux staff had decorated the already beautifully adorned, canopied king-size bed with the most stunning, bright red, pipe-cleaner like flowers, arranging them to read, "Welcome." The various cottages at Fond Doux are separate from one another and provide a great sense of privacy and seclusion despite being in close proximity to a relaxing pool area and top-notch restaurant. The view from the porch of our cottage, which sat high on the hillside and overlooked much of the plantation, was sublime. The cottage contained the modern amenities that make one comfortable, but passed on those that distract from a honeymoon (e.g., a television). The cottage was not air conditioned, but large, screened windows and doors on three sides of the cottage allowed a comforting breeze to flow through the cottage. I slept well, and I'm one that always seems to be too hot at home. We had quality WiFi and were able to stream a Netflix movie or two during our stay.

We were given a tour of the plantation and taught about the various fruits, flowers, and other plants that thrive there. We tasted "jungle M&Ms" (cocoa beans straight from the pod in their natural jelly), wet coconut, dry coconut, and mangoes, and smelled fresh nutmeg and cinnamon right off the tree (which are amazing).

The on-site restaurant, Jardin Cacao, is generally considered one of the best on the island. It is great. It provides a wonderful ambiance, frequently features local musicians, and offers tasty fresh fish, barbecue, and other dishes complemented with fresh fruit and vegetables picked and prepared on the plantation.

The accommodations and facilities of Fond Doux are amazing, but it is the people who really make it special.

Katrina, Tara, and others in the reception office will proactively help you plan your adventures around the island, touch base with you often to ensure everything is on track, and make any arrangements needed to ensure you're on your way.

You may run into Regina, a sassy lady who more or less runs the show at the Jardin Cacao restaurant. She is, indeed, sassy, but she is sweet, good-natured, and never short on humor or lively conversation. Also at the Jardin Cacao is Kendal, an endearing young man who is typically found tending the bar. He is funny and well-mannered beyond his years and provides a window into the great promise of an intelligent, ambitious, and well-intentioned St. Lucian youth.

Lyton and Eroline LaMontagne, the proprietors of Fond Doux Holiday Plantation, are, themselves, St. Lucians and reside on the plantation. They are gracious and go out of their way to interact with their guests. When in Soufriere town, you may see several businesses that bear their names. They are pillars of their community and proud to share the beauty of St. Lucia with their guests. I believe such a foundation offers Fond Doux guests a St. Lucian experience entirely unique to one found at a Sandals or other foreign-owned, corporate resort.

If you decide to hike Gros Piton, ask for Kennison "Booko" St. Rose. He is a kind, funny, intelligent professional who is patient with out-of-shape hikers. He will give you the best experience possible during the moderately strenuous hike.
