Fond Doux Plan­ta­tion & Re­sort Mak­ing Great Strides

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Fond Doux Plan­ta­tion & Re­sort is proud to an­nounce ex­cit­ing new de­vel­op­ments and awards for the year so far. Hav­ing com­pleted 2014 with a bang, re­ceiv­ing a num­ber of awards from Travel Weekly and Tripad­vi­sor to name a few, Fond Doux is at it again. Fond Doux has been granted the Award of Ex­cel­lence from the Book­ing.com Guest Re­view Awards 2014. This award was re­ceived in recog­ni­tion of Fond Doux’s ded­i­ca­tion and care in meet­ing and ex­ceed­ing guests’ ex­pec­ta­tions, and its abil­ity to con­sis­tently de­liver amaz­ing stays.

Fond Doux has also re­ceived a 4-star Ap­proved Di­a­mond Rat­ing from AAA. Each year, AAA re­views more than 28,000 ho­tels in­clud­ing re­sorts, his­toric inns, B&Bs and just 0.4 per­cent make the AAA Five Di­a­mond List. “Only prop­er­ties that meet AAA’s stan­dards for clean­li­ness, com­fort and hos­pi­tal­ity get to be AAA ap­proved and we are very proud of that”, states Ero­line La­mon­tagne, Ex­ec­u­tive Direc­tor and Co-Owner of the Re­sort.

“The first quar­ter of 2015 has def­i­nitely been ex­cit­ing to date”, Ero­line af­firms. “We have suc­ceeded in mov­ing our of­fices to the main plan­ta­tion house, pro­vid­ing a more re­laxed and com­fort­able at­mos­phere for our guests. We have also pro­vided a num­ber of train­ing ex­er­cises in cus­tomer ser­vice and eco-green prac­tices for our staff”, she con­tin­ues. As a green globe cer­ti­fied prop­erty, Fond Doux is com­mit­ted to eco-friend­li­ness, self-suf­fi­ciency and sus­tain­able tourism and en­sures that this con­cept is em­bed­ded in all of its prac­tices.

Fond Doux was built from a deeply rooted pas­sion of its St. Lu­cian own­ers Ly­ton and Ero­line La­mon­tagne, to trans­form a 250 year old work­ing plan­ta­tion into a prop­erty that would not only pre­serve the in­tegrity of the nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment but also make it a va­ca­tion des­ti­na­tion for those who ap­pre­ci­ate the won­ders of na­ture. Fond Doux has a num­ber of other projects un­der­way which will be an­nounced in due course as the aim is to con­stantly im­prove on the ex­pe­ri­ence pro­vided to the guests.

Fond Doux is not your typ­i­cal re­sort - Fond Doux is a self-suf­fi­cient, au­then­tic re­sort that goes above and be­yond to de­liver ex­cep­tional guest ex­pe­ri­ences, and that is ev­i­dent in the col­lage of awards that it has re­ceived over the years.

The plan­ta­tion style house is sur­rounded by lush scenery.
