"We are deeply humbled to receive an award of such magnitude," said Fond Doux co-owner Eroline Lamontagne. "We are committed to environmentally-friendly practices at our resort and are proud to make a positive impact. We have always known that Fond Doux is a world class property, and this award validates that feeling to a global community."
Nominations for the WHBAs are made by an Awards Voting Jury comprised of 30 exceptionally well-travelled industry experts and luxury travel journalists. The WHBA panel reviewed more than 300 hotels before announcing Fond Doux Plantation & Resort as this year’s winner.
Set against the spectacular backdrop of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, our resort has 15 idyllic cottages set in a tropical rainforest on one of the oldest working plantations in the Caribbean. The property boasts 30 kinds of fruit trees, as well as an abundance of local birds and wildlife. This historic 134 acre cocoa plantation has been called one of the top five plantation resorts in the world.
When Eroline and Lyton Lamontagne moved in over 20 years ago and began remodeling Fond Doux, they attempted to purge the soil of powerful chemicals used in the cultivation of bananas in the 80’s. This was accomplished by using organic farming methods and the systematic planting of cocoa, which is now the main crop, as well as a vast variety of fruits and flowers. Sustainable tourism activities at Fond Doux are guided by an environmental policy consistent with Green Globe Certification requirements.
"We’re proud that our commitment to excellence is being recognized by both guests and industry professionals," continued co-owner Lyton Lamontagne. "We will continue to provide guests with a luxury boutique experience while celebrating our magnificent natural surroundings and adhering to strict sustainable practices that will keep them that way."
The island’s people have earned a well-deserved reputation for their warmth and charm, and the island itself is dotted with aged fortresses, small villages, and open-air markets.
Beautiful Caribbean beaches, enchanting rainforests, and hospitable people make St. Lucia the reality of many travelers’ dreams. Its dramatic twin coastal peaks, the Pitons, soar 2,000 feet up from the sea, sheltering magnificent rainforests, where wild orchids, giant ferns, and birds of paradise flourish.
Brilliantly-plumed tropical birds abound, including endangered species like the indigenous St Lucia parrot.
The rainforest is broken only by verdant fields and orchards of banana, coconut, mango, and papaya trees.
St Lucia has been inhabited since long before colonial times, and its cultural treasures are a fascinating melange of its rich past and its many different traditions.
