Laid back stay amidst amazing fauna & flora
Our stay at Fond Doux was very special and pretty unforgettable. We stayed at the 'Tree House' amidst amazing jungle-like fauna and flora, fell asleep to the sound of a cacophony of crickets, frogs, and birds, woke up to the cries of an energetic cockerel - and absolutely LOVED it! The resort is in a fabulous setting, staff are lovely, and the location is perfect for visiting Soufriere, hiking the Pitons and doing various eco trails, and gardens. Fond Doux is definitely a special place, but it could do with a bit of an update - from a more varied food menu to some maintenance in the rooms (fixing mosquito nets etc). These things weren't detrimental to the enjoyment of our stay, but given how tough the competition is around there, it might be a good idea to look into upgrading certain things. We'd absolutely come back though, as we've never stayed closer to nature, and we're missing the amazing sights and sounds back in the UK!

A unique, authentic Caribbean experience made amazing by the incredibly helpful and friendly staff. The open air rustic cottages are very private and nestled deep in the rain forest. Amazingly peaceful.

Fond Doux is a beautiful eco resort near Soufriere. The cottages are amazing. My partner and I reserved a cottage with a plunge pool and air conditioning (highly recommend). Each cottage has a private outdoor seating area with beautiful views of the luscious surrounding forest. Staff were friendly and very helpful with any questions we had. Buffet breakfast was included and it was really good. The only downside was the lunch/dinner at Bamboo Restaurant. The restaurant/bar has great potential in terms of atmosphere/ambiance (good mood lighting/in the middle of the jungle/live music on Saturdays) but the food is significantly overpriced and falls well short of the quality of the local produce and ingredients customarily served at spots frequented by locals. For example, within a 6 min drive there is an amazing local bar with roadside BBQ meats including jerk pork and grilled/fried chicken for a fraction of the price (and its delicious!). We ended up eating at this place and other local restaurants each night. All in all, I would definitely stay here again because of the staff, the amazing vistas and the pristine accommodations.

Fond doux is a beautiful unconventional resort in the heart of st.Lucia . My reason for choosing this resort . The grounds are gorgeous. The pools are amazing . Breakfast is delicious and service from staff is kind and responsive . Housekeeping is on point . Thank you to Hilarious, teyah , Albertina , Jenny and driver Shawn for making the stay more special . I would however would like to point out that on check in the resort does ask if you’re celebrating anything special . I did come to celebrate my birthday and never received any kind of gesture in response to that . The “ free “ shuttle to sugar beach is incorrectly advertised . You do have to pay $50 per chair on the beach and take a very long & steep walk when you get there . We decided to just place our towels right on the beach and had a very good time . Also , while the food at dinner time was relatively good the menu was repetitive and boring after the 1st day . Opted to take a taxi to try somewhere else . Overall , I would definitely recommend this resort and would love to return

We were surprised we didn't have Air in our cottage and the frogs at night were very loud. I slept fine but my wife had issues. The property was unique and overall we're glad we had this experience. We will remember it forever although there was a few issues. The cottages are in the jungle and no view at all except the lush trees which again was different. The hike on property was great and has a great Piton view. Service in the Restaurant at night was a little slow for our liking. It rained most days in this area which was not good for beach and hike days. I thought the food prices were too high and portions small. The staff were all friendly and helped were they could. We lost water pressure once but it was quickly restored after telling the front desk. We had to walk down because the phone wouldn't connect. This place is unique and worth a few days if you don't mine roughing it some in older cottages nestled in the jungle. We split our time on both sides of the island so this worked out for us.
