If you want a five star, Waldorf-Astoria, cookie-cutter, could be anywhere in the world resort, this is not for you. Better you should go to Sandals. But if spectacular views, friendly and helpful staff, some local flavor, and motivation to explore off of the property is what you are looking for, you will be hard-pressed to find better than La Haut. A working farm, you get superb food, a rooster to wake you in the morning, and milk for your coffee that was still in the cow a few hours earlier. Everything is open-air. No a/c in the room, but who cares; the fans and mosquito netting are perfect. You have to wait a minute or two for hot water in the shower, but who cares; the shower window is enormous and looks out on the Pitons. No tv in the room, but who cares; we didn't travel 3000 miles to watch Jerry Springer. You can hear the reggae from town every evening because you are halfway up the mountain. The bartender can make your drink even if you can't describe it or name it; just tell her/him what you're trying to get to. Because there aren't many guests at any one time, you will meet them and so will your kids.
- 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
