Experience Chocolate Making Tours or Nature Hikes
At Fond Doux Plantation & Resort we offer a wide variety of activities for guests to indulge in.

Whatever style of St. Lucia vacation you’re looking for, from a chocolate making tour or cocoa plantation tour to nature hikes or birdwatching, it’s all right outside your door.
Our triple cascading pool is centrally located in the resort. The 3 pools varying between 13 and 15 feet in diameter offer lush views of the surrounding mountains and vegetation. Rainforest hardwood furniture and deck chairs are available for guest use, with bathrooms and showers nearby. Take advantage of our unique poolside library to spend the day with a good book or borrow a board game for poolside entertainment. Feel like a tropical cocktail or snack while sunning in your lounge chair? Place orders using our pool telephone for delivery service.
3 nature trails are located right at the resort for your enjoyment. Take in breathtaking views, local flora and fauna, and see historical ruins rich with tradition and folklore.
As a Green Globe certified resort we rely on our forests for clean water, cleaning our air, providing habitats to wildlife, and more. Part of our Green and Sustainable Initiatives is our Tree Planting program where guests can plant a tree in any area of the resort’s gardens and have the tree labeled with your name. This is a complimentary activity encouraging our guests to invest a bit of time and effort into the land we so enjoy.
