Fond Doux Does it Again!
Fond Doux Plantation & Resort was announced a winner of the 2018 World Luxury Hotel Award for the “North America Luxury Hideaway Resort”. It was at a prestigious black-tie ceremony celebrating the 12th anniversary of the World Luxury Hotel Awards held in Indonesia on Saturday, 10 November 2018 at AYANA Resort and Spa, Bali.
The award serves as recognition of sustained commitment to excellence in hoteliering and outstanding achievement in the international luxury hospitality industry. Over 300,000 international travellers vote each year during a four-week period to select the winners. The resort's directors, Eroline and Lyton Lamontagne, are extremely honoured to have captured the award again this year.
Established in 2006, World Luxury Hotel Awards is the pinnacle of achievement in the luxury hotel industry, offering international recognition for resorts voted for by guests, travellers and industry players alike. Over 360 guests flew in from around the world to attend the event, which awarded the world's finest hotels for their luxury offerings and exceptional service delivery.
“Our mission is enshrined in environmental consciousness and the protection of our heritage combined with a team dedicated to offering total guest satisfaction,” said Eroline Lamontagne. “Fond Doux is part of the new distinct niche market for places off the beaten track and hidden gems across the globe."
Lyton Lamontagne added, “As a leading authentic, sustainable, eco-friendly, boutique resort we aim to contribute to the solution of reducing single-use plastics in Saint Lucia, and one of our latest green initiatives was to ban the use of plastic plates, cups, straws and cutlery and replace them with biodegradable products.”
Michael Hunter-Smith, Group Marketing Director for the World Luxury Hotel Awards had the following to say about the winners, including Fond Doux: “We congratulate all our winners for the 2018 Award Year who, through their tireless efforts and endless passion to elevate their guests' experience, have received this honour tonight. True luxury is not easily attained; it takes a team of highly efficient and dedicated staff willing to go the extra mile and stop at nothing to ensure that every guest feels cared for and no challenge is not solved. This is the definition of luxury; this is what makes the winners shine at the World Luxury Hotel Awards event.”
The entire Fond Doux team thanks everyone who voted for them. This is a testament to the hard work and dedication that the resort's members of staff and volunteers give to uphold a high quality of service for all of its guests.
Fond Doux Plantation & Resort has garnered much recognition for its prestige, including a 2018 World Luxury Hotel Award.
