A 19th century colonial resort near Soufriere in St Lucia, Fond Doux is rich in character and offers genuine character for couples, families and individuals. With French charm and touches, this resort and plantation is steeped in nature. Tropical fruit hangs from the trees and the sweet aroma of chocolate hands in the air, as exotic birds call out from the treetops.
Twelve authentic St Lucian cottages make up the resort, and each offers stylish accommodation and traditional island touches and design. You can unwind and relax on the decking around the pool, enjoy a spa treatment, go shopping, feast on delightful local cuisine and go for walks around the property and extensive gardens.
In a great location and minutes away from markets and shopping, and a multitude of natural attractions and of course a beautiful white sandy beach, there is something for everyone. The property is even on land designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and desperately close to the Piton mountains.
Take a step back from modern life and embrace the charm and elegance of one of the authentic cottages at Fond Doux. Lovely furnishings, vibrant colours and local wooden detailing create an atmosphere that encourages romance and rejuvenation. Soft breezes blow through the cottages and the trees, breathing life into the environment and your tired soul.
Designed to give the perfect blend of nature, you can immerse yourself in it or have that little bit of back home. Modern touches and amenities are unobtrusive, the staff are there to cater to your every wish, and you have access to a host of facilities and services.
