THIS WAS AMAZING! We worked our way up the island and stayed at a few different places - this was definitely my favorite. Wonderful owners and Tina at reception is a treasure! Gorgeous views, beautiful accommodations, the trail on the property is definitely worth a hike. The website doesn't do it justice because there is no way to convey how peaceful coffee on the deck looking over the forest in the morning is, the incredible people, or the natural beauty of the ecoresort. Really good breakfast with some authentic local food. You truly feel like you are getting away, and at the same time, like you are coming home. A few things to iron out with the restaurant, but honestly - LOVED staying here, and all of our concerns were immediately addressed! Seriously, don't miss the place on your trip to the island! We will definitely be back!

Hotel's Favorite
Wonderful week at a beautiful resort! The setting in the rainforest is spectacular, very private and relaxing. Our cottage was very clean and had the historic touches. Open air shower was great! The staff was efficient and very friendly, with very good food at the restaurants. Breakfast was usually a buffet, and lunch and dinner had a good variety and quality was very good - usually had the fish of the day! No TV and enough spacing between cottages that we felt like we had the lower portion of the resort to ourselves. Shuttle to Sugar Beach and Paradise Beach was great. We also took a taxi to Anse Chastanet and spent the day at the beach there. It is a short taxi ride to Soufriere, and the scuba diving is great! We have stayed in St. Lucia twice before, at larger resorts on the NE end of the island. This is much more laid back and the beaches, snorkeling, and diving are spectacular! Would come back to Fond Doux Resort!

What a beautiful property nestled in the jungle. We stayed in the Coconut Suite which is quite a hike but worth every step.. but warning if you are handicapped or elderly this probably will not be the place for you.. there's simply no way to get around the steps unfortunately that's part of the beauty of the property We had came there from Tet Rouge, and what a 180 difference in experience. You might notice my review and their response their response was total lies, beware of Tet Rouge..this place all the people especially Tina, are genuine and hospitable...if you want beauty, our room had sprawling back porch and plunge pool and serenity... beautiful jungle like fauna this place is for you.

The friendly staff and proprietor made our 14th-year anniversary memorable. Special mention to Ferisia at front desk. She was exceptional. Ferisia added flavour to our staycation and ensured we enjoyed it to the fullest. I love nature and the ambience was breathtaking. It mesmerized me by its scenic beauty. Thank you to the Fond Doux staff for making our time indelible.

My Partner and I treated ourselves of having lunch at this wonderful resort. I must say all the staff are really friendly and they tend to care for their guest. From the security guard to the front desk staff down to the waiters they were excellent. However I would like to make an exceptional shout out to this lovely lady Miss Petrula. You kept on checking up on us and guiding us accordingly to ensure that everything was going great . Also to the chef as well food was really delicious!! Job well done 🏆We will be back ! …. Much Love From Brianna & Michael❤️

Tropical paradise, Island life as I only imagine. This unique resort is close to city Soufriere on southeast side facing Caribbean see...beautiful. We were vacationing with family for a week...If would be up to me, I would not leave this place for a week.... Besides its own beauty, what makes it really good stay at this location...people! Whole staff at this place was nothing else than just amazing, helpful in any aspect...including owners of the resort, who interact with us almost on a daily base. Cannot wait to come back! ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS

We booked 2 cottages for our family of 2 adults/2 teens. We were in Papaya and the kids were in Banana, just below us. The resort grounds are gorgeous, pictures do not do it justice. This resort is not for everyone as it is not handicapped accessible, but if you want peace and tranquility in the jungle, this is for you! Papaya cottage is beautiful with a/c, a plunge pool & my fav, an open air shower! The bed is very firm, but comfortable IMO. Water pressure was great, a/c was great and it was nice to have a fridge and hot water kettle. The view from high up was great! Banana cottage was on the ground, but still beautiful. I suggest stopping at a grocery store to grab some drinks/snacks. They have a lunch/dinner restaurant and a breakfast restaurant. Food is good, especially the catch of the day and the lamb chops!!!! Breakfast is very Lucian with fried bakes and fresh fruit picked off the surrounding trees. So much to say about this place....the staff is great! If you don't see something you need, just ask and don't be shy...they are totally willing to help! The pools are lovely, massage was great. Taxi service with Lyndon was excellent! Thank you Britney for being such a lovely server. Jenny & Albertina at the front desk were wonderful and full of knowledge. Katherine McPhee, such a nice woman! Clinton was a cool dude! Thank you all for a wonderful week!
