We split our trip to stay half in Soufriere and half in Rodney Bay. The beauty, history, and peacefulness on this side of the island should not be missed. The staff at Fond Doux bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable. We did not miss a television and even got used to sharing quarters with the small lizards and...

My boyfriend and I just returned from a 5 night stay at Fond Doux. I could not more highly recommend this hotel! The grounds and location are absolutely breathtaking. You are immersed in lush green rainforest, swaying palm trees, blue and green hummingbirds, incredible skies, and beautiful French-colonial architecture.

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.
