Hotel Description

The name isn’t just an affectation — this is a working, 19th-century cocoa plantation and organic farm, a visual and olfactory cornucopia set amid acres of lush Saint Lucian jungle. More than just eco-friendly, Fond Doux Holiday Plantation embodies the essence of natural island living. And though it’s close to many of the island’s major tourist haunts near the southwest coast, this is not the gated, pampered resort model; every aspect of the design, cuisine, and layout intimately acquaints guests with the region’s living traditions.

Fifteen in all, these freestanding buildings play up their French-colonial ambience, each painstakingly restored and individually outfitted with dark-wood accents and wicker furnishings by local artisans. Expect a gratifying balance between old-world authenticity (vaulted ceilings, textile-swathed four-posters) and contemporary comfort (semi-enclosed rain showers with Azha amenities, private porches overlooking a riot of tropical flora). Higher-tier rooms add quite a bit more space, full kitchens, and private plunge pools. It bears mentioning that you should expect to thoroughly unplug: rooms don’t have air conditioning or TVs (though your old friend wi-fi is available throughout).

Forget all that, though; the timeless appeal more than makes up for the screenlessness — cocktails by the palm-lined, cliffside pool won’t ever go out of style. A free shuttle facilitates day trips to nearby white-sand Jalousie Beach, complete with paradisiacal views of the Pitons, and the island’s verdant botanical gardens and a drive-in volcano (!) are just a short spell up the coast. Upon return, book yourself a session at the on-site Mamma La Terra Spa, then a table at either of the two plantation-to-plate restaurants. If a blend of international and French-Caribbean Creole specialties doesn’t rouse the appetite, we’re not sure what will.

How to get there: Fond Doux Plantation & Resort is a half-hour drive from Hewanorra International Airport via St. Judes Highway.
