La Haut Resort
Ranked #1 of 9 Soufriere B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 April 2012

We are a middle- aged American couple who generally opt for 4-star resorts, so La Haut was a different experience for us. If you require speedy and attentive service and everything working right, go elsewhere. Specifically during our stay, our room (1A of the main building) was burning hot, the safe key was not available upon check in, the lock required jiggling, two light bulbs were burned out, and phone service was erratic. The staff did remedy everying (except phone), but it took a while (by impatient New Yorker standards). Guests get one complimentary bottle of water, no replacements. Boiling water was recommended.

Second-story rooms have a visually-striking peaked ceiling, whereas ground floor rooms have airconditioning. Our top-floor room was large and had ample floor space, even though it contained a king-size bed, dresser, kitchen table and two chairs, and a separate sitting area with two chairs and a flat screen TV that had snowy reception. Bed was very comfortable and draped with mosquito netting; remainder of furniture was functional, but not aesthetic.

Others may rave about the views from the cashew rooms, but I thought the main building had better views of the Pitons, and with no city-view, had a more remote atmosphere. Main building is also closer to the front office (convenient when phone does not work) and the restaurant, and doesn't require walking up and down a steep hill on a hot day.

We had breakfast and two dinners at the restaurant. Breakfast was limited; food was good. Dinner had decent range of options and food was good.

The main builing was being painted when we arrived; don't know about the rest of premises. Grounds were well maintained (this is a plantation afterall), and the staff was friendly and helpful.

Overall, I was satisfied with our stay, but my high-maintenance husband was not.

I just want to thank all the staff at La Haut for their wonderful customer services they provided my husband, my mother who was visiting St. Lucia for her 70th Birthday and I. They went over and beyond their duties. Thank you!!
We will be back soon Julie & Mikael Lamber

My wife and I recent spent a week at LaHaut and had a wonderful time. The staff was friendly.The room had a glorious overlook of the Pitons and the village of Soufriere. The grounds were well maintained. They were in the process of giving the facilities a fresh coat of paint. The resturant came highly recommended and it lived up to expectations. Being a ways up the mountain, you cannot easily get down into Soufriere. The resort will set up transportation for you but you cannot be in a hurry. If you are looking for great nightlife and a lot of action, you should not be staying in the better resorts in Soufriere anyway. Soufriere is about relaxing, enjoying the view and fine dining.

LaHaut offers to set up or book various activities. We we chose to take part in several of them. We happened to pick activities that had the resort driver taking us here and there. He was very nice and extremely informative of the area, the locals and the island history. We went to a jungle zip-line on the east side of the island and it was an adventure for a older middle aged couple. It also offered us the chance to see other parts of the island. A hike to see a waterfall back in the natural reserve was enjoyable. The snorkeling at another nearby resort that is on a beach was a lot of fun.

We were able to visit several other resorts in the area, all highly rated. The views and dining at those facilities were also great. The facilities were higher end than LaHaut but the prices are also higher than LaHaut. While it may not be as fancy as some of the other higher end resort in the area, LaHaut is a wonderful place and a good value for that level of establishment.

Room Tip: Several rooms have private balconies, all with great views. These rooms are also closer to the owner...

We are a couple, stayed in a standard room, 4A to be exact.

The view--can't be beat, its one of the best on the entire island.

The staff--can't be beat, genuinely nice, flexible, very accommodating and extremely helpful.

The food--limited menu for breakfast, but good. I liked the omelettes and fresh fruits. We had 1 dinner there, it was ok.

The property--very nice, but could be even better if they got rid of the 3 rusty old oil containers.
Could also use a little remodeling. The infinity pool and view of the town soufriere can't be beat.

The room--size is good, but the bathroom and the room looks old/worn. The bed was very comfortable. No use of windows, very stuffy if air conditioner is not on. Also, it was hard to fall asleep with the lights on outside, which can be seen through the solid glass blocks or so-called windows. The air conditioner was positioned right over the bed, so either you felt really cold or hot if you turned it off. It could be positioned at a different location for best air circulation.

Shuttle to Anse Chasenet provided by the La Haut--really great! We spent a lovely day there and took a 10 minute walk over to Anse Mamin, simply spectacular!

Room Tip: Try to get a room with windows, maybe the ones on the 2nd floor?? Book online for best deals.

We returned here for lunch after a lovely afternoon last year. The view is stunning and we love that there's a pool to use before/after eating. Unfortunately, the food was terrible and very expensive. My daughters chips (fries) had clearly been reheated/fried and tasted terrible. I ordered a healthy salad which was a bowl of iceburg lettuce with less than 1 tomato chopped up, a couple of bits of cucumber and then an abundance of dried cranberries. (maybe some nuts, can't quite recall). When I asked for some dressing, the waitress said they'd run out. Might have been nice to know this when I ordered!! Luckily my son's pasta & pesto was nice (excluding the uncooked root veggies in it) so I ate what he left. Partner said his chicken curry was nice but the meat was of a poor quality. Other than that we had a tea, coke & milkshake, & I think it came to about US$80!!!!!! I nearly fell off my chair! And the service wasn't anything to write home about.

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
