Overall, we had a fantastic stay at La Haut and would recommend to anyone. The views of the Pitons, rooms and service were excellent and, above all, the price is unbeatable (you won't find another resort in Soufriére that offers such high quality and romantic atmosphere at such a reasonable price). All of the staff members were extremely friendly and went above and beyond to ensure we were having a pleasant stay. We stayed in the Premium Vista cashew rooms and it was well worth the extra cost - our room was huge, clean, and had an amazing view of the Pitons (although not air conditioned). The Delicé restaurant was also excellent and had a wide selection of entrees, including vegetarian. The breakfast included in the room rates was very good.
The only recommendation we would make to travelers staying at La Haut is to rent a car. La Haut offers a shuttle service to the nearby beaches and Soufriére, but the times are very limited (departing at 10pm for the beach and returning at 4pm). If you want to try other restaurants or travel to other parts of Saint Lucia, you're better off renting a car because the taxi's are very expensive (it cost us $60 roundtrip in cabs just to go to other restaurants within 10 minutes of the resort).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- La Haut or Le Haut literally means "the height" in Patois, a French dialect that is commonly spoken by St. Lucians. La Haut sits on a hill overlooking Soufriere, one of the oldest towns in St Lucia.Part of a 52-acre former coconut and cocoa estate, the main Guest House possesses a unique history. Nearly 100 years old, the main guesthouse was originally a cocoa house used for fermenting and drying cocoa beans hand-picked on the estate. In 1995, the building was converted and refurbished into a 6-room guesthouse. The nearby cottage was a former copra house where coconuts were once processed.Although the rich aroma of cocoa beans no longer wafts through the air, at La Haut you can enjoy the perfume-scented, tropical fauna or the salty breeze that blows off the Caribbean Sea. ... more less
