Fond Doux Plantation & Resort

Fond Doux Plantation & Resort, Etangs, Soufriere , Soufriere, Saint Lucia

Love at First Sight

Set in the heart of St. Lucia and surrounded by lush tropical rainforests, Fond Doux is an authentic and historical working cocoa plantation resort, just a 45 minute drive from St. Lucia’s international airport. Offering 15 romantic and private cottages, moments from some of St. Lucia greatest attractions including the Pitons and Sulphur Springs, Fond Doux is an idyllic, eco-friendly retreat for romantic couples.

Romance

Nothing’s more romantic than strolling through Fond Doux’s lush fertile vegetation and marvelling together at the diverse range of organic fruit trees, birds, tropical flowers, plant life, vegetables and local spices. The resort’s serenely beautiful rainforest location promises an intensely romantic ambience and is the perfect place for independent, nature loving couples to celebrate a honeymoon, special anniversary or exotic destination wedding. To fully experience the romance St. Lucia and Fond Doux has to offer the resort highly recommends the following romantic activities: Hiking up the scenic Lamontagne’s trail late afternoon to watch the beautiful sunset on the mountain ridge - Sulphur Getaway treatment which begins at the Sulphur springs with the application of hot mud to your body and ends with a massage at the resort - A sunset Champagne cruise - Planting a tree together in the resort's garden to watch your tree grow year after year as your love grows stronger.

Your Stay

All 15 luxury cottages are uniquely designed to offer complete privacy as well as their own individual character and charm, sensitively reflective of their Caribbean heritage and eco-friendly credentials. The one bedroom cottages come with pool features and unique rainforest outdoor showers and Angelina Villa comes with a royally romantic recommendation as the recent host of Charles and Camilla during their trip to St. Lucia.

What to Do

Whether you’re seeking an action packed romantic getaway or dream of spending lazy afternoons in your cottage hammock, Fond Doux has something for everyone. The resort features a beautiful spa where guests can indulge in a series of treatments including the popular couples massage, triple cascading pool, historical Cocoa drying trays, cooking classes, cocktail making and shopping in the boutique. Outside the resort, the town of Soufriere and all the major attractions are just minutes away and for more active and adventurous travellers we can recommend the: Tet Paul Nature Trail, Gros Piton Hike, Rainforest Trail, Ziplining, Horseback Riding, Segway Tours, Waterfalls, Drive in Volcano/Sulphur Springs, Botanical Gardens and Boat Tours (sunset sailing, whale and dolphin watching and deep sea fishing etc.)

The Food of Love

Fond Doux has two excellent restaurants – the Cocoa Pod and Jardin Cacao. Both serve delicious Caribbean and international cuisine in truly tropical settings. Up the romance factor with a private candle light dinner on your cottage patio, wedding gazebo, pool or in the courtyard under the stars, a private picnic lunch in any area of the resort’s gardens, or a romantic breakfast in bed.
