Fond Doux Holiday Plantation, best known for its romantic, intimate and private collection of luxury cottages, is spending part of 2013 touching up and renovating its award winning resort.
“We are very pleased on how things have been coming together here at Fond Doux, giving our customers something that is new, refreshing, bright and pleasant,”said Fond Doux owner Eroline LaMontagne. “And we have more to come!”
Earlier this year Fond Doux embarked upon a plan to enhance guest experiences on its authentic working plantation, including construction of 2 new, deluxe cottages with rainforest showers and plunge pools, refurbishing of existing cottages, larger lobby and new lounge area.
In September, Fond Doux was honored with a Silver Award by The Travel Weekly Magellan Awards for their cottage design. This yearthey also received a Certificate of Excellence award from TripAdvisor.
“In an effort to continue to enhance the resort and our overall guest experience, we are continuing to upgrade our product and services,” said LaMontagne.
Following a successful international wedding symposium held in St. Lucia in September, the romantic surroundings of the resort have also been enhanced. Additional floral species have been planted throughout the property, including a new orchid entrance leading to the resort’s new, handmade bamboo “Circle of Love” wedding gazebo.
“Our brides’ day is of utmost importance to us, hence the reason for this new addition to the property,” said LaMontagne. “Weddings are, and will continue to be, a very important part of what we do here at Fond Doux, and these new changes will make that wedding day even more special”
Fond Doux’s award winning restaurants, Jardin Cacao and Cocoa Pod, have been reorganized and the cottages are now displaying works by local artist Alwyn St.Omer, a master draughtsman, colorist and storyteller with a deep passion and lifelong desire to document and to preserve St. Lucia’s heritage.
