As other reviews have stated, if you want a resort feel this is not the place for you but if you want a truly authentic feel this is a great place to stay. Each and every one of the staff said hello and asked how our day was or what our plans were for the day. We stayed in the...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 31 January 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 needed a real break from work and life's business. The beauty and family feeling of Fond Doux was ideal. We climbed Gros Piton with another couple staying at FondDoux, enjoyed the sulphur springs and mud bath, walked Tet Paul, and Fond Doux's own piton-view trail and revelled in the plants and wildlife around our delightful cottage. The hammock was...

We spent 6 nights in Papaya Cottage and loved it! The cottage was perfect, clean and private, tucked into the hillside. Loved the outdoor shower. The people at Fond Doux were the best part. We were greeted and felt welcomed by every employee. We received excellent service from Lecia, Antonio and Dennis who did much of our driving. Although the...

I had a wonderful time at the resort. The staff was wonderfully helpful and amicable. The restaurants serve healthy and regional food and fruit. Peaceful, hospitable and well worth the price. The only drawback: it has no direct access to the sea, so you have to be shuttled to the beach.

My husband and I spend 5 nights at Fond Doux and it was absolutely glorious. The days started with a yummy breakfast buffet, filled with all kinds of fruits, breakfast meats, omlets, etc. Each day we did an excursion - hiking Gros Piton, Enbas Saut Rainforest, Tet Paul, the beautiful nearby beaches - and landed back at Fond Doux in...

We enjoyed a 5 night getaway to St Lucia Apr 2016. I'm behind on reviewing but still appreciated the concept. We stayed in one of the cottages along the lower walkways so did not get much of a breeze through. Loved the nature trail overlooking the Pitons, and walked up for sunset most nights. They were updating the trail and...

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...

“They have cottages down below which are shorter walk to the restaurants or others on a hillside which have more of a panoramic view”

“We were in Hilltop Orange - it had great views, plus an outdoor shower and plunge pool. Significant steps and uphill walking, so maybe not for everyone. ”
