My wife and I stayed at Fond Doux for five nights and had an enjoyable time. When we first arrived after traveling for 12 hours, we were given some delicious fruit punch at Reception and taken to our Angelina cottage where we were welcomed with a fruit basket and rose petals. Everyone we came in contact with who worked at...

My husband and our then 8 month old stayed at Fond Doux from New Year's Eve through January 8th. We had a beautiful place high above the trees - I think it was called Coconut. The view was gorgeous. The staff is so kind and warm. They were so lovely to our daughter - from wait staff to drivers to...

Staying here made us feel like we were part of St. Lucia. The property was lush and the cottages were private, as a result. I spent more time on our patio than I could remember of any trip I’ve ever taken. I also think this attracts a certain type of person – everyone we met had stories of what they...

We stayed at Fond Doux for 6 nights on a visit to St. Lucia. We chose the cottage Angelina - a 200 yr old house transported to the plantation 10 years ago from Castries and restored. It had a lot of old world charm with a huge bedroom upstairs and a sitting area and dining area downstairs. A lovely verandah...

We (2 adults, 3 kids) had a superb stay at Fond Doux. We would go back in a heartbeat. The location is lovely - within lush rainforest, with beautifully tended gardens. Each cottage is secluded and separate, giving the feeling of privacy and immersion in the rainforest, and it's a few steps to the restaurants, bar, pools etc. The place...

Spent 4 nights at Fond Doux as a solo traveller and had a fantastic stay. The hotel offers roundtrip transport from the airport for $120 USD which was cheaper or on par with other services.
