As one of the top St. Lucia resorts, the suites are constructed of tropical hardwoods, stone and tile, furnished with locally crafted wood furniture, fixtures and accessories. All units are decorated with local artwork and feature magnificent views of the Pitons and Caribbean Sea.

Pros: Saint Lucian experience- and Eco sustainable environment
Cons: Microwave did not work and kitchen glasses, dishes, and coffee maker not clean. Mold found in coffee filter.
Discover Fond Doux Plantation & Resort, a 19th century eco-friendly colonial plantation nestled in the heart of Soufriere, St Lucia. The plantation resort is situated amidst a 250 year-old working plantation, featuring an assortment of fifteen uniquely crafted cottages, two onsite restaurants, spa, boutique, historical cocoa drying trays and a collage of outdoor swimming pools. We are conveniently located just minutes away from the island’s main attractions: The Sulphur Springs - the Caribbean’s only “drive-in volcano”, The Pitons and the best diving sites on island all within the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Much of the land on the estate is utilized to grow fruits, flowers and vegetables – all of which are used in Fond Doux Plantation & Resort’s two restaurants. These include star apples, pawpaws, zabòka avocados, mangoes, grapefruit, bananas, love apples, breadfruit, coconuts, cinnamon, sour-sop, golden apple, sugar cane, limes, tangerine, oranges, apricots, cherries, plums, wax apples and gwiyav guava – not to mention our famous cocoa. The property is totally committed to self-sufficiency and invites you to get involved.
All of our cottages have been built and designed with minimum impact in mind. No machinery was used when constructing these 15 stunning residences – all excavation was performed with loads of elbow grease and shovels only. Adding to the water and power conservation, it is little wonder that England’s Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla visited the estate in 2008, with the environment so close to the Prince’s heart.
