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.
