Fond Doux Plan­ta­tion & Re­sort’s com­mit­ment to of­fer­ing au­then­tic Saint Lu­cian ex­pe­ri­ences on an his­toric 250-year-old tra­di­tional work­ing plan­ta­tion has been recog­nised in­ter­na­tion­ally as the His­toric Tour Op­er­a­tor of the Year 2017. The judg­ing panel sat down at the end of last week to se­lect the win­ners they wished to recog­nise in this year’s 2017 Hol­i­day & Tour Spe­cial­ist awards.

The awards are de­scribed as ‘rep­re­sent­ing the pin­na­cle of achieve­ment, cham­pi­oning the best in their re­spec­tive fields’, and the win­ners are cho­sen af­ter hav­ing gone through rig­or­ous as­sess­ment by in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als and celebrity guest judges.

Awards Co­or­di­na­tor for Lux­ury Travel Guide, Max Bond, ex­plained, “Award win­ners that have demon­strated suc­cess and in­no­va­tion will gain a place in our soon-tobe pub­lished award win­ners’ guide, which will be printed and dis­trib­uted to over half a mil­lion sub­scribers along­side our printed dis­tri­bu­tion which will see over 250,000 hard copies sent to lux­ury ho­tels, cruise ships and air­port lounges across the world.”

Fond Doux’s Ero­line La­mon­tagne said the Re­sort was hon­oured by the award. She thanked Lux­ury Travel Guide for recog­nis­ing their con­tin­ual ef­forts to pro­vide guests with ex­cep­tional and au­then­tic Sant Lu­cian ex­pe­ri­ences.

Ly­ton La­mon­tagne added: “This is the first time we have been recog­nised by Lux­ury Travel Guide and we are proud to be the re­cip­i­ent of this award. We will con­tinue to pro­vide guests with a unique and mag­i­cal ex­pe­ri­ence of liv­ing on a 250- year-old tra­di­tional work­ing plan­ta­tion.”

The Lux­ury Travel Guide award fol­lows the Ho­tels Com­bined Award in recog­ni­tion of Ex­cel­lence ear­lier this year.

Saint Lu­cian-owned Fond Doux Pla­na­tion & Re­sort has been named His­toric Tour Op­er­a­tor of the Year 2017.
