The grounds are immaculately maintained: new planting being added continuously, an organic vegetable garden growing, fruits and spices for tasting and cooking with, and all kept orderly, clean, and well-maintained. We watched...

Within 15 minutes of arrival, I realised that Fond Doux was as special as the reviews suggest and their website does not do the resort enough justice. In my humble opinion, Fond Doux is one of the...

Wow, what a wonderful evening we spent at this hideaway in the rainforest. We splurged for one night after "roughing it" for one week in St. Lucia with no regrets! Excellent service and a beautiful private cottage to stay in. 100% recommended.
