I needed just one day and night in a relaxed environment before taking off to busy NY, after having worked in St Lucia for a few days ... and Fond Doux provided just that. I would recommend to anyone who needs time out.

Are children allowed at the Resort?
Yes sure you can but make sure you take insect repellent and keep the body covered with long sleeves/ trousers etc due to Mosquitos. We went in August and that was one of the few negatives. Our daughter's were teenagers. We all had nets round our beds. Enjoy!

Hello SurreyGirl62, Thank you for your interest in our beautiful Plantation Resort! It would be a pleasure to welcome you to Fond Doux Plantation & Resort. It is not advisable to walk into Soufriere or the beach as there are no side walks along the route and as such we would recommend a ordering taxi service. We remain at your disposal for any further assistance required. Best Regards, Fond Doux Management Team

We are wondering if there are any places to run?
There are trails and woods but depends what type of running you do?! Look at an area map and type in things to do in google for area breakdown so you can dejected routes. Roads/ lanes are quieter near/at resort but not sure if you jog on roads.

Do the cottages come with air condition??
No just ceiling fans. We went in August so it was a bit humid and sticky but not unbearable without AC.
