About Our Resort and Plantation
Enjoy the Preservation of History and Culture
Nestled in the heart of St. Lucia, Fond Doux Plantation & Resort is a 19th century eco-friendly colonial resort that is best known for its romantic, intimate, and private “eco-luxury” cottages. The resort is situated amidst a 250-year-old working plantation and features an assortment of 16 uniquely crafted cottages, two on-site restaurants, a collage of outdoor swimming pools, as well as an organic spa. The resort also features a wedding gazebo, the Plas Cacao Chocolate shop, a traditional cocoa fermentry house and a hall of fame.
The resort is a scenic 45 minute drive from the island’s international airport and just minutes away from St. Lucia’s main attractions, including The Pitons, Sulphur Springs – the “Caribbean’s only drive in volcano” – and the best diving sites on the island, all within a prestigious UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Eco-Tourism has been a central theme at Fond Doux long before it became an international trend. We love sharing our property with visitors which is why owners Eroline and Lyton Lamontagne have gone to such lengths to protect our land and heritage so it can be enjoyed for years to come. As a certified organic plantation and a member of Green Globe, Fond Doux participates in a number of sustainable practices. We invite you to read about a few of the initiatives we have outlined here.
About St. Lucia
St. Lucia, also known as the “Helen of the West” for its natural beauty, lies in the heart of the eastern Caribbean chain of islands. Beautiful Caribbean beaches, enchanting rainforests in the interior, and a population of loving people make St. Lucia the reality of many travelers’ dreams. Its dramatic twin coastal peaks, the Pitons, soar 2,000 feet up from the sea, sheltering magnificent rainforests, where wild orchids, giant ferns, and birds of paradise flourish. Brilliantly-plumed tropical birds abound, including endangered species like the indigenous St. Lucia parrot. The rainforest is broken only by verdant fields and orchards of banana, coconut, mango, and papaya trees. St. Lucia has been inhabited since long before colonial times, and its cultural treasures are a fascinating mélange of its rich past and its many different traditions. The island’s people have earned a well-deserved reputation for their warmth and charm, and the island itself is dotted with aged fortresses, small villages, and open-air markets. A diverse variety of land and sea based activities are available for your holiday enjoyment in St. Lucia. The island’s steep coastlines and lovely reefs offer excellent snorkeling and scuba diving. The rainforest preserves of St. Lucia’s mountainous interior are one of the Caribbean’s finest locales for hiking, bird watching and canopy ride adventures. The island also possesses excellent facilities for golf, tennis, sailing, and a host of other leisure pursuits. Not to be missed is St. Lucia’s Soufriere volcano, the world’s only drive-in volcanic crater. St. Lucia is everything you’ve dreamed the Caribbean would be and is the kind of place where relaxation comes easy and the pressures of everyday living simply fade away.
The History of St. Lucia's First Town
Soufriere is located on St. Lucia’s west coast and has acquired a reputation for its legendary beauty. From white sand beaches, coral reefs, and exotic jungles, to waterfalls, volcanic springs, and the town’s trademark Pitons, there are many scenic features found within Soufriere’s borders.
