Fond Doux Adds Cottages and Comfort

Waiting for a room or suite at one of St Lucia’s most alluring properties is about to become easier.
Fond Doux Holiday Plantation resort is increasing its capacity by adding five new cottages, which general manager, Eroline Lamontagne pledged would “retain the same unique architecture as the other 11 cottages on the plantation.”
Mrs Lamontagne, who owns the unique accommodations along with her husband Lyton, concurs the recent TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence recognition received by Fond Doux is motivation for the expansion. “Our recognition as a favorite destination last month is sparking interest in the property as well as enthusiasm to add the new accommodations.”
On the cards are three deluxe one-bedroom cottages and two honeymoon cottages with private plunge pools.
To retain the old French colonial charm, Lyton Lamontagne painstakingly moves authentic cottages from throughout the island and lovingly restores them at Fond Doux in Soufrière, St. Lucia’s former capital.
However, Mrs. Lamontagne reports the additions will be a little different: “All new cottages are going to be more spacious with outdoor living day beds and hammocks in the patios.”
Additional enhancements will be evident in the bathrooms which she says will “feature outdoor rain forest showers with luxurious fittings.”
Scheduled to be unveiled by the start of the winter season in December, the room additions will be accompanied by added touches to the common areas. “We are creating a larger and more comfortable lobby and reception area in the Great Estate house to include a library and Wi-Fi area for our guests. We are also refurbishing and upgrading our restaurants and kitchen to accommodate these changes.”
