I can't even begin to say enough about our stay at La Haut. We only stayed for 2 nights so we had originally booked the cheapest room option. To our pleasant surprise we were upgraded to a Superior Deluxe room on arrival. The room was very spacious and clean, and the view was spectacular. There was no A/C but it truly wasn't an issue. At night we just left the balcony doors cracked and turned the fan on, and we were very comfortable.
The real treat at La Haut, as others have pointed out, is the fantastic infinity pool. At first we were worried that it would be an issue to use it since it is technically the owner's pool, but that wasn't the case at all. I am convinced that the view from that pool is the best on the entire island. We actually talked with the owner one night at the bar before dinner for probably almost an hour and he even gave us a round of drinks on the house so we could try the Ti Punch (amazing, by the way!) He was so nice and welcoming, along with the rest of the staff. You get a level of service here that you just can't find at larger resorts.
We ate breakfast and dinner each day of our stay and both are fantastic. Drinks are also reasonably priced compared to some of the other places we ate at. We didn't need a car because we just utilized the free shuttle to the beach. Anse Chastanet is a great beach with amazing snorkeling, so definitely take advantage of this free service!
Honestly, I can't say one bad thing about our stay. The view, the property, and the people are perfect. When we make it back to the island we will be stopping at La Haut again!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- La Haut or Le Haut literally means "the height" in Patois, a French dialect that is commonly spoken by St. Lucians. La Haut sits on a hill overlooking Soufriere, one of the oldest towns in St Lucia.Part of a 52-acre former coconut and cocoa estate, the main Guest House possesses a unique history. Nearly 100 years old, the main guesthouse was originally a cocoa house used for fermenting and drying cocoa beans hand-picked on the estate. In 1995, the building was converted and refurbished into a 6-room guesthouse. The nearby cottage was a former copra house where coconuts were once processed.Although the rich aroma of cocoa beans no longer wafts through the air, at La Haut you can enjoy the perfume-scented, tropical fauna or the salty breeze that blows off the Caribbean Sea. ... more less
