This is our second visit to the Fond Doux Holiday Plantation. We stayed for 6 days in the Tree House - a gorgeously large cottage with an outside verandah and a plunge pool, 4 poster bed, outdoor rain shower, etc etc. If one could realise a childhood dream to actually stay in a tree house with the adult comforts surrounded...

Wife M and I spent the first 5 days and nights of 2015 at Fond Doux. I was a little worried about being able to find the place; we rented a car in Castries and the Fond Doux website only had a PO box and a link to a slightly confused Google Map. Turns out there was no need to...

When our host led us up the stairs to our private cottage overlooking the palm trees, my wife turned and gave me a big hug. It was, I have to admit, a little hard-to-believe.

Lush jungle setting with nice rooms and outdoor shower (at least for us). The on site tour was interesting and the pool was well set. Service was excellent. We rented a car and would advise doing such for this area. Driving on St. Lucia is not particularly challenging, and taxis can add up fast in cost. Note, the wifi did...
