This winner of our Best in Value Soufriere for 2013, La Haut Resort is found on the grounds of a 100 year old former coconut and cocoa estate dating back over a century. While the rich aroma of roasting cocoa beans no longer wafts along the breezes, the estate still enjoys the perfume scented salty trade winds that blow off the Caribbean Sea.
