The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Fond Doux Plan­ta­tion & Re­sort’s com­mit­ment to the en­vi­ron­ment is be­ing rec­og­nized by the Travel Weekly Mag­ellen Awards. The 2015 Sil­ver Mag­el­lan Award rep­re­sents the third year in a row that the re­sort has won an award in the Hos­pi­tal­ity cat­e­gory.

Fond Doux Hol­i­day Plan­ta­tion is a 19th cen­tury eco-friendly re­sort si­t­u­ated amidst a 250-year-old work­ing plan­ta­tion. It fea­tures an as­sort­ment of ten uniquely crafted cot­tages and two on­site restau­rants.The re­sort was se­lected by en­tries re­ceived from the top travel or­ga­ni­za­tions and hos­pi­tal­ity pro­fes­sion­als world­wide.

“Mag­ellen Awards are se­lected by some of the in­dus­try’s top travel or­ga­ni­za­tions, so re­ceiv­ing our third con­sec­u­tive award is flat­ter­ing,” said Fond Doux owner Ero­line La­mon­tagne. “We are com­mit­ted to en­vi­ron­men­tally-friendly prac­tices at our re­sort and are proud we are mak­ing a pos­i­tive im­pact.”

The Travel Weekly Mag­el­lan Awards hon­our the best in travel and salute the out­stand­ing travel pro­fes­sion­als be­hind the scenes.

This award comes on the heels of a fourth con­sec­u­tive Cer­tifi­cate of Ex­cel­lence award from Tri­pAd­vi­sor.

“We’re proud that our com­mit­ment to ex­cel­lence is be­ing rec­og­nized by both guests and in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als,” said La­mon­tagne.

Win­ners are fea­tured in an is­sue of Travel Weekly in Oc­to­ber, 2015 that will in­clude a sec­tion ded­i­cated to this year’s win­ners within the travel in­dus­try.
