We had a week long stay at Fond Doux in March of 2015 and it was more than we could have hoped for. I booked Fond Doux after seeing the rave reviews, and everything and everyone exceeded my expectations. First I'll reiterate tips that others have said. You have to do the Plantation Tour with Philip. He is knowledgeable, friendly, and the tour is fantastic. If you can make it up to the Tet Paul trail as well, you're in for a real treat. Dennis, Happiness and the other drivers and staff members are extremely friendly and helpful as well. Any questions you have you can ask Tara, Katrina or any of the other front desk staff and you will have prompt and helpful replies. We took advantage of the shuttle to Sugar Beach 3 times during our trip, and would really recommend it. We booked a sunset sail through the front office and this was also a wonderful experience. We ate dinner at Jardin Cocoa several nights and found the food to be fantastic and well priced. We had two dinners at other resorts booked and were able to get transportation to those without any problems. Good thing we did too, because we found out the roads in St. Lucia are tricky to say the least! We stayed in the Hilltop Cashew Cottage. It was clean, spacious and really did stay cool enough to be more than comfortable for our whole stay. We did have some lizard and frog friends join us in the shower, but we knew and were ok with that going into it! Fond Doux is a gem and very special place. We enjoyed the pool one full day and the lunch was delicious. It was a truly special place to get away for an extremely relaxing and rejuvenating week.

Room Tip: Any of the Hilltop Cottages have great views of the forest/valley

From the very moment of reception this place has not failed to impress. Everyone is so friendly and the cottage was filled with hand placed flowers everywhere. The grounds are beautiful and the feel of being in the jungle is highlighted by all of the jungle noises. The cottage is delightful down to the outdoor shower. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!!

We had a very good time in Fond Doux, we stayed in the Papaya cottage which had a fantastic view over the plantation and the rainforest. You basically had no one around and felt as if being alone midst in a rainforest, away from all the hustle and bustle. We did have quite a bit of rain here and there, but than again it makes it even more exotic & peaceful. Cool, friendly and relaxed staff.
The visit of the plantation (given by Phillip, great funny chap) was really worth it, beautiful flowers, fruits and birds. Great breakfast; omelette or scrambled eggs à la minute (which btw makes a real difference), fresh juices & fruits from around the plantation, Cocoa tea and many other surprises. The restaurant Jardin Cocoa, in my opinion one of the better ones around Soufriere, the barman makes great cocktails, and the service staff was really fun!

Overall, definitely worth the stay, keep it going!

Just had a wonderful stay at this coco plantation! This a nature lover's paradise. Our unique, private cottage was spacious and thoughtfully decorated. The outdoor rain shower was a special feature. Awoke each morning to a wonderful chorus of birds. Hummingbirds, beautiful fruit and flowers everywhere. Did the plantation tour (Philip) & half day local tour (Denis). Both very thoughtful & experienced guides. Easy access to Tet Paul trail, mud baths & fab views of the Pitons. All staff were friendly. Special, lovely place!
