Quintessential St. Lucia. The only thing that rivals the beauty of this property are the incredible people who work here. The nature trail near the Treehouse where we stayed leads, in 8 minutes, to a great view of Petit Piton. Leascia (may have spelled her name wrong) and others provided great service for every meal and drink. Be sure to take the property tour with Clinton. Really fun guy with a lot of knowledge. The owner came and visited with us before we left. Just a great experience. Had the whole place to ourselves pretty much unfortunately due to Covid the island is missing tourism. Can’t wait to come back in more normal times even if the crowds are there with us. Be sure to have the Cocoa Fond Doux drink, we had too many to count. Book all allowed excursions through the front desk and they just add it to your tab. Property tour, beach shuttle and delicious breakfast are included.

We had a fantastic time for a week in the Fond Doux Plantation, an eco-friendly resort owned independently. From Alec at the bar, Regina and Lucia in the restaurant as well as Jenny and Tina at reception all were so welcoming and lovely and made a week that was difficult due to covid restrictions amazing. It was nice to have a drink with the owners, a down to earth couple, a nice difference from the usual PLC owned by an investment fund. The resort itself is covered with trees, flowers and bamboo where you can see all types of wildlife wondering around including hummingbirds, lizards and frogs - as well as a lovely trail to have a great view of the petit piton. Its a beautiful place if you love nature. The rooms itself was lovely, a beautiful 4 poster bed and lovely deck and plunge pool. My only issue was no pool cover on the plunge pool - needed a cleaning anytime i wanted to go in!

Came with a group of friends for 3 days as a part of our stay in St. Lucia. The island is wonderful. FD offers a very nice unique setting in the rainforest. Absolutely beautiful natural experience. All individual bungalows/villas. A small resort pool. Very nice people working at the resort although be prepared for a slower ‘island pace’ when it comes to service. The facilities are nice, but some wear and tear is noticeable. Wasn’t a big deal for us as we were a part of a group visit and stayed busy. The food at the restaurants was good. A very special shoutout to an absolute star - Alec, the bartender. He stood out as someone who understood and cared for our needs better than most. You could picture him at a Ritz Carlton in New York or LA- a real pro. Alec made a number of situations workable and pleasant for us when they could have turned difficult. Just a class act all around. Thank you, Alec!

Spent 2 weeks here and it's a lovely setting.. beautiful grounds surrounded by fruit laden trees, forests and wildlife. The restaurant and bar service was great with a changing menu based on the days fresh produce. And the effort put in to maintain the grounds was clear. We were quarantined at the property but never felt trapped.. the hotel organised excursions and activities.. the Scuba diving with Chester was outstanding.. plus sailing and snorkelling. But... they let themselves down a bit. It's a luxury resort, but the level of attention to detail and cleanliness was lacking. I appreciate that they've been closed most of the year and it's a difficult time to reopen and get everything going again after months of lockdown. But i expected more. That said, when we did complain they reacted well so that's a positive. Overall i'd say go there. But take insect repellant. And enjoy…

I had a very nice time on the hotel. I loved it. Nice weather, nice activities, really love it. They have a chocolate factory, actually the chocolate, so, plus they have a nice view of the pitons, the walk worth it.
