Chocolate Heritage Tour
The Plas Cacao Chocolate Shop first opened its doors in October 2017 manufacturing 100% organic Saint Lucian chocolate. Cocoa is one of the main crops at the resort, and what better way to celebrate our love for chocolate and cultural heritage than making our own.
For chocolate lovers looking for a unique experience, join us on an exciting chocolate journey where you will taste your way through the incredible 135-acre cocoa estate.
On our Fond Doux Heritage Tour guests receive a guided walking tour of our expansive property, learning about local vegetation and the rich history of the land.
Fond Doux Plantation & Resort is a 135-acre, locally owned and operated, an award-winning resort located within the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Soufriere. The plantation is over 250 years old, with captivating history around every turn. Fond Doux has retained the character of the early French colonial estate as one of the earliest estates established by the French on the lands granted by the Royal decrees of 1745 and 1764.
Fond Doux provides guests with the best of both worlds: the privacy and relaxation of the rainforest with access to the white sand beach. A St. Lucia vacation isn’t complete without a dip in the Caribbean Sea, which is why we have a free beach shuttle service available to all guests.
Our beach shuttle goes to Sugar Beach, a pristine white sand beach in Soufriere a short 15-minute drive away. Our private shuttle leaves daily at 10 am with pickup at 2 pm or 4 pm, depending on your preference. Please be advised that guests are required to reserve a pickup time.
At Fond Doux Plantation & Resort we offer a wide variety of activities for guests to indulge in.
