The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

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.
