Surrounded by volcanic spires and flourishing tropical gardens, Fond Doux Plantation & Resort is best known for offering its guests romantic, intimate, and private luxury cottages. Imbued with a magical ambiance, the 19th century ecological plantation effortlessly marries old world colonial style with modern amenities in nature’s richest surroundings. Luxurious, historical and architecturally intriguing, the Fond Doux Holiday Plantation is a journey back in time and closer to nature. The majestic Pitons, a world heritage site, form the backdrop to this rustic, working plantation that produces organic food to serve in its two onsite restaurants and is home to original colonial cocoa racks, where guests can get involved in making their own chocolate.
This eco-friendly colonial resort is home to 15 uniquely crafted cottages, fully equipped with kitchens, balconies and patios. Each cottage is filled with wood furnishings and colour that accentuates its contemporary decor. Guests can enjoy the resort’s 3 swimming pools and poolside bar or further relax in the Mamma La Terra Spa. The resort also has trails for you to walk at your leisure, surrounded by 30 kinds of fruit trees and brilliantly plumed exotic birds.
Dining at Fond Doux takes place in its two sumptuous restaurants, The Cocoa Pod and Jardin Cacao, offering guests Caribbean and international cuisine. The Cocoa Pod is where guests can feast on a full breakfast each day, with a choice of either restaurant for lunch and dinner. Set amid the lush gardens of the resort, these two restaurants both enjoy tropical breezes and bright light, where diners can appreciate the truly enchanting setting of the resort.
Fond Doux is conveniently located near St Lucia’s main attractions, such as The Sulphur Springs – ‘The Caribbean’s only drive in volcano’. Guests can also hike and explore the ecological wonders and wildlife or hang out at the nearby beach.
