Lovely experience Stunning setting. Delightful staff. Couple of slight issues. All for Eco awareness but lighting was hopeless and shower cold! Breakfasts delicious, evening meals lacked variety. Loved the plunge pool area. Totally relaxing break

Our stay on the Fond Doux Plantation and Resort was wonderful! It was highlighted by our hilltop Guava cottage where one could nearly reach out and touch the top canopy of the surrounding rainforest. A nightly serenade, compliments of thousands of tree frogs and crickets, lulled one easily to sleep. One awoke refreshed in the morning by the many forest...

This is one of the most beautiful places I've ever visited, and I've travelled extensively worldwide. The cottages are charming, beautiful and totally private (we stayed in one of the "honeymoon" cottages with a private plunge pool), with handworked wood details, breezy shutters, cotton linens on a four-poster bed, simple tasteful furnishings, complementary fresh fruits and coconuts from the farm,...

What a treat to stay in your own rain forest cottage! My family was very happy with this hotel and the location in Soufriere. The people couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. The only negative was the service and dinners at their restaurant were not special. I recommend this resort and this location.

This place was so beautiful and exotic. The walk to our cottage was so beautiful, I've never experienced anything like it. I would definitely come back. Be aware that it's far from other restaurants and they only had one at the resort. Some variety would of been nice. Also the room had no TV, which I was totally fine with,...
