My wife and I really enjoyed staying at La Haut. It was reasonably priced, with nice rooms with a veranda or deck opening on to a great view, friendly and professional staff, and close to Soufriere. The only complaint we had was that the showers were frequently cold. If you want a nice place to rest your head and use as a base, and aren’t looking for a traditional “resort,” check out La Haut.
We stayed in the "Rainforest Room" in Fond Cannes (one of the buildings in La Haut Resort) in early May this year and had the most amazing experience. Our room was located a little ways down the road from the rest of the hotel. It was our honeymoon (two years belated), and our room had a gorgeous view of Soufriere, both Pitons and the Caribbean Sea. Our breakfasts consisted of fresh local fruits, eggs, meats and coffee. The Fish Roti for lunch was delicious. The service was very personable and we really liked everyone we met. This is not an all inclusive resort, so if that is what you are looking for then you might want to think about Rodney Bay. If you are looking for something family friendly, authentic and relaxing, then La Haut is the place to be. The infinity pool peaks out over the edge of the world. It is a favorite place for locals to bring their families on special occasions. The owner is very friendly and seems to really care about his staff, guests and the community. It is not easy to walk into (and definitely not back from) town, so I would strongly suggest renting a car. We used Islander Cars/ St. Lucia Car Rental and had a great experience. Having a car gave us the freedom to explore the island and was quite fun to drive once we got used to driving on the left side of the road. Staying so close to Soufriere allowed us to hike Gros Piton, eat in town almost everyday, visit the Botanical Gardens, see the Diamond Waterfall, bathe in the Sulfur Mud Baths, and take a fun sunset cruise right out of the harbor. It's an active place and the rhythm of the town is enlivening. I hope we get to come back for our ten year anniversary, and I hope you stay here because it is a wonderful place.
My wife and I spent our third stay at the La Haut last month. The hotel office staff was most helpful and, as always, exceeded taking care of all of our needs. The dining room staff was also helpful with our meals. Once ordered, they delivered right to our room. Since my wife requires a chair to take her shower, they met that need as soon as I made a request for one. The housekeeping staff was very friendly and did a great job. To top all this off, our veranda presents a spectacular view of the Piton Mountains and the town of Soufriere. Even though the location is well away from the hustle and bustle of town it is very convenient to many good restaurants. Sal & Joyce Amico White, Georgia
Our family had a very short stay at La Haut and were very impressed by the time we left. Upon arriving, the cottage and its amenities within had us taken a back at first but after exploring around the property and using the owners pool as well as talking to some of the staff we realized that our simple accommodations had its own charm which was perfectly accented by the magnificent view of the Pitons. We will make a point of going back to La Haut when next we return to St. Lucia. VJ
This hotel is a beautiful property with amazing views. Gym is a bit run down. Rooms are very spacious. Breakfast was wonderful. Great location. I have stayed here a few times as the value is good for the location. Everything is a slightly worn though so dont expect modern conveniences, like the shower and bathroom. Wifi was good.
My husband and I stayed a wonderful five nights in the Fond Cannes 2 room, which offers a breathtaking view of the Pitons and Soufriere. Before booking, we did extensive research on the property and were aware of the uphill location away from town. This was actually a bonus for us as we truly enjoyed being away from it all, enjoying the peace and serenity of the countryside. We truly could not have asked for a more incredible getaway. Here's a rundown for anyone doing research: AMENITIES Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. No air conditioner, but that was okay because the fans and cool mountain breeze were more than adequate. The kitchenette offers a minimalist approach to cooking. And by that I mean that it has one pan and very few utensils. This didn't bother us, but did make us resourceful in deciding what was feasible to prepare in house vs. eating out. To save a bit of money, we prepared breakfast in the room each morning, but opted to eat out for lunch and dinner. The infinity pool is a 5-10 minute walk up hill and offers perhaps the most beautiful view of St. Lucia we experienced. We also visited Jade Mountain and Ladera, and La Haut's view from the infinity pool is 100 percent on par, or perhaps even better than those views. Our room was tidied each day and always felt clean. DISTANCE TO TOWN / DINING / DOING THINGS While the property is a distance from restaurants, beaches, etc. it is not a difficult walk into town for those who are in shape and up for a bit of exercise. About 20 minutes downhill. We also walked to Anse Chastanet twice, which is quite a workout, but was actually really fun for us. Those who do not enjoy a challenge would not want to do this hike though. Returning to La Haut does require a taxi as the return back up the hill is incredible steep. We became extremely fond of our local taxi driver and his friends, who all helped us get around when necessary and were good people. The locals have heart and soul and kindness. We never felt endangered. HOSPITALITY The owner was incredibly kind to us, even inviting us into his beautiful home for a drink and conversation. We enjoyed getting to know him and appreciated the hospitality. OVERALL If you are looking for a hotel experience, this is not the place for you. But, if you cherish peace and quiet, and truly want to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life in a bed and breakfast environment....this place is a dream. It's rustic, rural and beautiful, without unnecessary frills. We actually left La Haut thinking we would like to bring some of the minimalist, energy conscious practices we picked up while there. It was a wonderful reminder that you don't need to have access to EVERY SINGLE THING at every waking moment of your day to enjoy the simple pleasures of life. We extend our sincerest thanks to La Haut for helping us create the most wonderful vacation we could imagine. We cannot wait to return, hopefully for longer next time!!!
I was greeted by a warm room with a uniquely decorated bed , the golden drapes set the mood for romance and relaxation. In the morning I was greeted by the breast of our island piercing through the sunrise and the glass sea mirroring the clear blue sky. Silence was broken by the birds in the tree top. To leave the comfort of the sheets was my only regret. I now have bragging rights but ....... I'll Be Back!!!!!! Thanks to the kind staff who made my stay a great one !!!!!
My sister and I spent 3 nights at La Haut in the Fond Cannes 2 room. Location: about 1 mile from the city up on the hill. We were thankful we had a rental car as it would have been difficult otherwise Room: was very spacious and clean. The kitchenette was just OK - it would be difficult to cook a real meal as there was only 1 pan, no pots and limited utensils. Bathroom was nice, water pressure was quite low Common grounds: the infinity pool was the highlight for both of us and the main reason we booked there. It was well maintained and the views can't be beat. We used the pool 3 times and we're alone each time. Restaurant was average, food was OK and prices were mid-range. There isn't a common area to hang out during the evenings, which makes interaction with other guests difficult. We didn't meet anyone else staying at the resort. If you are looking to spend your vacation with your party this is the spot for you
My husband and I got the Groupon deal last year and stayed at the Superior Deluxe room in May 2017. We tried all the accommodation this place has to offer from the main pool, to the owner's infinity pool, and to the restaurant. Our favorite is the owner's infinity pool and the daily basic breakfast overlooking the pitons. Breakfast was $15/pp and I think it's totally worth it. The other reviewer explained this place best as "Affordable Luxury." We rented a car and was able to explore the island with ease. There was no traffic so driving on the left side was manageable. Rent a 4WD. 2WD cannot take the traction when the road is wet and slippery and you have to maneuver on hills. There are a lot of hills in St. Lucia. I remember getting around was easy and it takes 5min drive to town and around 10min drive to Chocolate restaurant where we had lunch. Google map is what we used. We had a blast.
The views at La Haut make staying here worth it. The room rates are affordable, and the views are breathtaking, but the restaurant doesn't serve dinner, and the property is isolated. If you're looking for seclusion, this is the place for you! We stayed here for two nights, which was plenty, and we didn't rent a car. We took a taxi to dinner one night, and a taxi to an excursion the next day. We purchased some food at a grocery store that we could cook in our kitchenette. The landscape is mountainous, and the roads match the terrain - sharp turns and often difficult to see oncoming traffic. Our room had air conditioning. There are animals on the property, and one morning the dog barked for awhile, which woke us up. The food at the restaurant is okay. Breakfast was a buffet, and both breakfast and lunch were additional charges to our stay. The bar is only open until 3 p.m. We read there was a fitness center, but we couldn't' find it. There are two pools on the property. The infinity pool is down the hill (about a 10 minute walk from our room) but well worth it. It closes at 5 p.m. If we stayed here again, we would likely rent a car and purchase more food for the room.
