“Last minute visit”
Reviewed November 11, 2013 via mobile

Our plane was 3 hours late getting in from the states and we were unable to find the facilities we had booked in the dark. We were able to get a room for the night at La Haut. We had a beautiful suite for the night. The next morning we were thrilled with the view of the Pitons and after walking the grounds enjoyed an excellent breakfast. Wished we could have stayed longer.

Stayed as a solo traveler for five nights in mid-october, 2013. Bypassed external sites (such as hotels.com or bookings.com) and contacted La Haut directly through their website--was able to book their "Fall Fab" special-upgraded room, breakfast, dinner, and Soufriere experience tour all at a great, off-season rate.

Staff communication via email was fantastic before the trip began. Upon arrival, was on a first-name basis with the helpful staff. Staff helped me arrange airport transportation from the airport (UVF) and a Gros Piton hike (extras-not included in package). Transportation is expensive in St. Lucia--but as a solo traveler staying only in Soufriere a rental car was unnecessary.

Views from my second story "Deluxe Cocoa" room were stunningly spectacular. Slept with my balcony doors open every night, and woke up to views of the Pitons. Rooms come with mosquito nets over the beds, which was useful. Fresh fruit delivered to the room each morning by the staff. There is NO alarm clock in the room-so plan on using an app on your cell phone (if you have service--coming from the states I did not) or bringing your own clock. TV was not working in my room--but given the landscape I had plenty to look at.

La Haut has two pools, one being an infinity pool that overlooks the town of Soufriere and the Pitons. Exactly what I pictured sitting on the edge of the world would look like. Breath-takingly stunning.

Traveling in the off-peak season is recommended if you like your privacy--I had the place to myself for a 1.5 days of my stay.

Ate at the on-site restaurant. Tried something new every night. Lots of the fresh fruits/veggies are grown on-site which is neat. Yes, service isn't as fast as the chain restaurants here in the states-but I enjoyed the downtime between appetizer--dinner--dessert..Everything was being prepared fresh and from scratch. Sat back and enjoyed the views.

My husband and I spent 5 nights at La Haut in mid October. The views of the sea and Pitons were fabulous, especially from the infinity pool but also from our veranda. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, suggesting various things to do. They also offer a free shuttle service into town and to the beach which is great for those without a vehicle. The breakfast included was plentiful and varied every day. We also enjoyed a few dinners at La Haut restaurant which were also very good. We had a really relaxing time and look forward to returning one day. Would recommend getting a vehicle for at least one or two days to tour the Soufriere area.

Room Tip: Would recommend staying in an upper floor unit or the cottage for the best veranda views.

Just spent a really superb couple of days here at the end of a week-long trip to St Lucia.
We were in a two storey cottage and couldn't fault the cleanliness, decor and view!
Only (very) minor gripes were that the wireless internet was never working properly and we could have done with a filter coffee machine in the kitchen.
Breakfasts were not great but I suspect this was because the hotel was so quiet out of season - which meant we got both of the pools to ourselves!!
It's a really good base from which to explore Soufriere, Chastanet etc. although having your own car is definitely a plus if you want to do this.

I was able to stay only one night and would love to return to La Haut and Soufriere. My room was beautiful, the cow wandering past my balcony was charming, the dinner and breakfast tasted good to me (perhaps I'm not as discerning as some guests, but I liked it and I didn't find it that expensive), and the view from my balcony, well it doesn't get any better. As it was August, things were perhaps a little quiet, but I'm certain they upgraded me to a better room than I'd reserved, so overall, I have to say I was very pleased with my stay here.

We were not staying at the hotel however we stopped by to have dinner a the restaurant to enjoy the great view on the Pitons.

The place was empty but the staff very welcoming, especially the bartender. Even tough the restaurant was still empty 1 hour after our arrival, the service was super-slow.

The worst part of this experience was the food:

Appetizer: the Sesame scallops were tasteless and overcooked, probably frozen before being cooked

Entree: Our fish could have been good but was really burned and overcooked. No responsible chef would agree to serve a such plate.

With only 2 appetizers/entrees, our bill was already $185!

Of course... they also tried a last rip-off on us, converting USD to XCD (East Caribeean Dollars) at a rate of 2.45. The habit on the island is 2.60 almost everywhere, 2.70 at best and 2.50 at worst.

Conclusion: nice view but a cook who ruined our dinner

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
