Fond Doux Plantation & Resort
Nestled in the heart of St Lucia, Fond Doux Plantation & Resort is an eco-friendly colonial plantation which dates back to the 19th century and best known for romantic, intimate and private cottages. The resort is situated within a 250 year old working plantation and is located in Soufriere just minutes away from some of the island’s main attractions, including The Sulphur Springs, and also the island’s international airport.
The property offers a destination experience, allowing you to immerse in your surroundings, engage in local culture and feel part of history. Guests are able to actively engage in the day-to-day running of cocoa plantation – Cocoa Harvesting, Cocoa Drying, Cocoa Grinding, Cocoa Dancing and Cocoa Rolling.
You gain a true appreciation for the finished chocolate product! In fact when Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall made their official tour of Fond Doux in March 2008, they had a go themselves. It is no wonder that the Guardian Newspaper has rated the resort Number 2 Plantation Retreat in the world.
