Fond Doux Plantation & Resort


About Fond Doux Plantation & Resort

Framed by rainforest and majestic volcanic spires, Fond Doux Plantation & Resort is more than a day at the beach on the beautiful Caribbean island of St. Lucia. Best known for its romantic, intimate and authentic experience, the eco-luxury resort is home to a 19th-century working cocoa plantation and features tropical gardens, charming cottages, two restaurants, a triple-cascading swimming pool and an organic spa. While a stay at Fond Doux isn’t chocolate-themed per se, guests can taste their way through the cocoa estate by joining a chocolate-making tour. Guests can also take a guided walking tour to learn about the captivating history of the property. 

Fond Doux is 100% Saint Lucian-owned, managed and staffed and considered among St. Lucia’s leading sustainable resorts with Green Globe certification.

The intimate Mama La Terre spa is surrounded by sun-dappled cocoa groves and a lush tropical “Garden of Eden” with colorful and fragrant flowers and fruit trees that provide not only a glorious backdrop but a soothing scent as well. The passionate staff believes in offering a one-of-a-kind spa experience by focusing on the restorative powers of nature. All products used in the spa treatments are made from all-natural, organically grown ingredients.



All the resort’s activities are right outside your doorstep. In addition to guided nature walks, bird watching, tree planting, cooking and cocktail making classes, you can take advantage of the poolside library and borrow a book or board game to while away the hours. Beach lovers can take the free shuttle to Sugar Beach for sunbathing, snorkeling and water sports. Adrenaline seekers can combine the thrill of zip-lining with a visit to Sulphur Springs to witness the world’s only drive-in volcano.


Culinary Highlights

Despite its small size, Fond Doux has two on-site restaurants serving guests a fusion of international, Caribbean and St. Lucian cuisine. The Bamboo restaurant offers a la carte lunch and dinner farm-to-table style made with fresh, organic ingredients harvested on the plantation. The Creole Pot restaurant offers diners authentic Saint Lucian Creole cuisine.
