The resort is situated amidst a 250-year old working plantation. During the French Revolution, Soufriere became the home of the headquarters for the Revolutionary Party and declared the ending to slavery in the French Islands. However, when Napoleon ruled, he reintroduced slavery and as a result, a battle broke out, known as the Battle of Rabot. This battle took place right here at Fond Doux Resort & Plantation, where the fortifications and ruins can still be seen today.
