Seeking respite from a snowy New England winter, 2 friends set off to St. Lucia for fun in the sun. Our first stop was Fond Doux Plantation & Resort and it was beyond expectation. The adventure began with kind gestures delivered by our greeter/driver at the airport--complete with refreshments in the clean, cool van (extra fee for transport)--and the complimentary...

Highly recommend this hotel (which is a set of plantation cottages, all at some distance from each other) in a quite lovely rainforest / cocoa plantation). The staff are lovely, quite natural and un-stressed. The owners are local St Lucian. I met the boss guy, and he's a very good and interesting bloke. This is a place to be comfortable...

My sister and I spent 5 nights here for a mid-winter getaway. I chose Fond Doux based on its reviews on Trip Advisor, and our expectations were met and exceeded. It is definitely upscale, but you feel integrated with the landscape and immersed in its natural beauty. Our cottage, Nutmeg, was at the top of the hill, but truly we...

We stayed here for 5 nights and really enjoyed it. It is about 3 miles outside Soufriere in the middle of the forest. We were in the African Tulip cottage, on the lower side of the plantation site.

Our family of 5 (kids: ages 10, 9, and 6) were seeking a warm, tropical vacation that had lots of outdoor activities, cultural education, and an "authentic" vibe. Fond Doux met and exceeded our expectations.

Our cottage was rustic, no A/C, and clean. The grounds and some buildings needed painting and repairs, but the sounds of the birds and insects made up for these deficiencies.
