Fond Doux Estate Hotel & Restaurant

Fresh on the launch of a brand new website, the historic Fond Doux Holiday Plantation in Soufriere, St Lucia has been awarded a Certificate of Excellence award from TripAdvisor for the second consecutive year.

This prestigious accolade from one of the world’s largest travel sites places the resort in the top-performing 10 percent of all businesses worldwide on TripAdvisor, and is only given to those who consistently earn high ratings from TripAdvisor travelers.

Situated on a 250 year old working plantation overlooking St Lucia’s world-famous twin Pitons, the resort is surrounded by tropical rainforest with over 30 varieties of delicious fruit trees.

The romantic and secluded hotel features elegant, restored colonial holiday villas, accented with white gingerbread and jalousie shutters. It also offers two onsite restaurants, an organic spa, catered weddings and romance packages, a collage of outdoor swimming pools, and the opportunity to watch cocoa dancers entice the taste of chocolate from Cacao beans.

Thankful for being blessed with “Le Plantation Fonddoux,” translated from French to mean “The Sweet Valley,” a delighted Eroline Lamontagne, general manager of the award-winning resort, was especially pleased with the TripAdvisor honor. “We thank the staff who have made it possible by their hard work, dedication, loyalty, and sacrifice. We especially thank all of the extended Fond Doux family and friends from around the globe who continue to keep us grounded with transformational advice and feedback.”

St Lucia itself was also recognized by TripAdvisor as one of the Top 10 Islands in the Caribbean, a distinction Lamontagne would like to preserve for current and future generations. “We will continue to be advocates for sustainable tourism as we petition public officials for policies to keep our islands clean, garbage free, and healthy.”

Fond Doux Plantation’s highly coveted TripAdvisor award appears to endorse the resort’s unwavering support to combine agriculture, conservation, heritage, and tourism, though Lamontagne was quick to point out that the resort “embraces being green not because it is fashionable, but because sustainable tourism is good for business, the environment, and the destination.”
