Practicing Eco-Tourism Before it was Trendy
Caring for the land and wildlife on St. Lucia is paramount to Eroline and Lyton Lamontagne, the owners of Fond Doux Plantation & Resort. They developed the concept of eco-tourism long before it became a worldwide trend, and Fond Doux, one of the only true eco-resorts in St. Lucia, takes great pride in being a fully organic estate.
Growing Fruit & Vegetables
Much of the land on the estate is utilised to grow fruit and vegetables – all of which are used in Fond Doux Resort’s two restaurants. These include star apples, pawpaws, zabòka avocados, mangoes, grapefruit, bananas, love apples, breadfruit, coconuts, cinnamon, sour soup, golden apple, and gwiyav guava – not to mention our famous cocoa. The resort is totally committed to self-sufficiency and invites you to get involved - See more at: http://fonddouxestate.com/about-fond-doux/eco-friendly-resort/#sthash.4ABoMNqS.dpuf
Low Impact Resort Accommodations
All of our resort’s cottages have been built and designed with minimum impact in mind. No machinery was used when constructing these 15 stunning residences – all excavation was performed with loads of elbow grease and shovels only!
We have also restored other historic buildings and practice water and power conservation across the resort.
Green Globe Certified
Fond Doux Plantation & Resort is one of the only resorts in St. Lucia to have been certified both as an organic plantation and as a member of Green Globe.
