Spending the holidays at Fond Doux was an excellent decision. I arrived as a guest & left feeling like a family member & long time friend. The property was beautiful, clean & well maintained. Tropical fruit, foliage, flowers & hummingbirds could be seen everywhere. The cottages were cosy & the in room massage was lovely. Eventhough I was quarantined, I didn't feel trapped. Lynton & Eroline Lamontagne (the owners/hosts) were present, plesant & very hospitable. I enjoyed our lengthy conversations at breakfast & appreciate them making time to chat whenever our paths crossed on the property. The Amazing Staff working at Fond Doux was very accommodating & made my stay memorable. I had to switch from one cottage to another, due to technical difficulties beyond the property's control. All of my issues/concerns were immediately addressed/rectified. I appreciate the efforts of the team to make the seemless transition. Javanna was professional, always checking in & making sure everything was good. Shyne was another very professional staff member. Always helpful, smiling, willing to go above & beyond the call of duty while answering my many questions. Shyne was knowledgeable about the plantation & provided lots of information on the tour. His attention to detail left quite an impression. Chef Chris created culinary masterpieces that satisfied my refined palate & left me looking forward to my next meal. I appreciate the efforts he made to address my dietary needs. The added personal touch of having the Chef stop by my table to make sure I was satisfied with my meals was a bonus. Other noteworthy staff members were Jenny, Clinton, Lecia, Alex, Thomas & Marsha. I am definitely looking forward to returning in the near future. *A few helpful tips.* 1. If you are using Fond Doux airport transfer, I suggest paying the additional $20 for the upgrade to the luxury option. Tarius the driver was amazing & pointed out highlights along the way which made the drive seem shorter. 2. Try to do the plantation tour on your first day it will give you a greater appreciation of the property & experience. Shyne did an exceptional tour. I was told Clinton is great as well. 3. Most of the cottages aren't air-conditioned. However the fan was sufficient to keep me comfortable during the day. The temperature at night was cool, comfortable enough where a fan is not needed. 4. I enjoyed having the sounds of the rainforest serenade me at night. However the night sounds may take some getting used to for light sleepers. 5. The property is located approximately 10 minute drive from the beach & a shuttle is offered daily. 6. Remember to pack insect repellent. Relax, enjoy & remember that you are staying at an eco resort in the rainforest.

We managed a very last minute trip in late Dec to Sandals, which was great in light of Covid but not our usual style. But then we managed to extend our trip and opted for Ladera and Fond Doux so had a wonderful chance to see different sides. Something pulled me to book Fond Doux and it was the best decision. We stayed New Years Eve too. Thank you Jenny for organising things so last minute. Lynton and Eroline you should be do proud - you lead the most amazing team of people (thank you each and everyone of you) with passion and this place is beautiful, truly authentic and a reflection of your vision. Don’t expect slick and perfectly polished but do expect something ever better and more beautiful, eco and authentic. Fantastic food (thanks for my lobster Chris) and cocktails (Alec). We stayed in a hillside pool cottage which was gorgeous. We also walked round the property and saw some of the other lovely cottages. Fond Doux - keep doing what you are doing and staying true to your values - you are amazing!

Owned and run by two prominent Lucian’s, Eroline and Linten, the plantation is made up of an amazing cluster of self contained wooden chalets individually named after the trees that are growing everywhere among the fantastic rainforest-like 200 year old chocolate plantation that has huge Avatar like flowers. We stayed in ‘Banana’. There was a great selection of food and the staff who served were very professional and always met you with a generous smile. Alex at the bar makes amazing cocktails, including the island staple rum punch which not only tastes great but blows your socks off! Well placed for a visit to the Sulfur Springs and the historic fishing town of Soufriere. I would definitely go back.

My husband and I cannot thank Jenni & the team enough, at Fond Doux. After rescheduling our honeymoon for the 3rd time, we FINALLY go to experience the beauty of St. Lucia & Fond Doux! Our room had an amazing, elevated view ("papaya" suite) with views of the jungle. The dip pool was a nice touch! The Bamboo restaurant was relaxing and spacious, with a delicious menu. We had some great meals and cocktails. Everyone there was sure to take good care of us. Shout out to Regina, Alec & Lecia! Thank you SO much. Highly recommend to anyone who is looking for privacy and memorable moments, with so much natural beauty all around you.

Seriously this resort was incredible. We got to live a real life Tarzan and Jane dream in a private cottage perched above the jungle, with our own private pool on the deck, and the cutest cozy seating areas so we could sit and soak n the stars. The room was so clean, every time we came back they'd even organize our toddler's toys, and we just loved every second. The public three-tier pool was a picturesque dream, the food was SO GOOD, and the service is unmatched. Although it's an amazing honeymoon/couples destination, they were SO accommodating for our toddler and from the endless fruit picking and chocolate making to the free shuttle to Sugar Beach, we were fully pampered and taken care of the entire time. We had the best time here and will definitely come back again.
