My husband and I stayed at Fond Doux for four nights in May and had a lovely experience. I can't speak highly enough of the staff who were a joy to get to know. Our cottage, Coconut, was beautiful. Private and serene. The only issue we had was the bathroom - be prepared to rough it. Mildew, bugs and lack...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed January 30, 2017

This is one of the most beautiful places I've ever visited, and I've travelled extensively worldwide. The cottages are charming, beautiful and totally private (we stayed in one of the "honeymoon" cottages with a private plunge pool), with handworked wood details, breezy shutters, cotton linens on a four-poster bed, simple tasteful furnishings, complementary fresh fruits and coconuts from the farm,...

We visited for a week for a family wedding and the surroundings really were second to none. The cottages were beautiful too, each one a bit different. As it's in the rain forest, it does get quite noisy at night so if you are a light sleeper, you may struggle but Fond Doux were thoughtful enough to provide ear plugs...

I travelled here solo for 4 nights in December 2016 to relax before travelling on to stay with family. I booked one of the "honeymoon suites" as they have a plunge pool and had dreams of chilling out to the sights and sounds of the jungle. Boy did it exceed my expectations. I was in the Tree House which is...

I cannot say enough good things about this place and the people that run it. We felt so welcomed from the very first interaction, which was arranging the pickup shuttle from the airport. Every employee was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The plantation is stunningly beautifully, surrounded so much vegetation. We considered a few other places before booking, but I can...

Great location outside soufriere on its own estate. It's still a working estate and you can do tours. There is a also a complimentary back massage for the weary traveller. Very atmospheric with a lot of attention to detail. Good cocktails. We had a great stay - just too short.
