Making Chocolate

Who doesn’t love chocolate? As the resort is situated amongst lush cocoa groves, our guests can not only smell chocolate wafting by on warm breezes, but can also actively engage in the making of chocolate if they wish – from Cocoa Harvesting, Cocoa Drying, and Cocoa Grinding, all the way to Cocoa Dancing, Cocoa Rolling, and enjoying the finished chocolate product! In fact, when Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla Parker-Bowles officially toured Fond Doux in March 2008, they engaged in these very activities. It is no wonder that the Guardian Newspaper has rated us the Number 2 Plantation Retreat in the world!

Eco Tourism to Another Level

Fond Doux Plantation & Resort is St. Lucia’s only true organic resort and is also the only resort in St. Lucia that engages in true eco-building practices and cultural preservation. This is evident through our practice of identifying intricate 100+ year old French Colonial wooden buildings slated for demolition, dismantling and transporting the buildings to the resort, and restoring them as guest accommodations that stand as monuments of the island’s rich colonial history.
