FOND Doux Plantation & Resort’s commitment to excellence and environmental stewardship has been recognized with a recertification by Green Globe International, as well as a 2016 Certificate of Excellence from both TripAdvisor and Hotels.com.
“We are extremely proud to again be certified as a Green Globe property, and grateful to have received Certificates of Excellence from both TripAdvisor and Hotels.com. We’ve always believed that a resort property can offer an outstanding guest experience, and do so in an environmentally sustainable way, so it’s wonderful to see this recognition,” said Fond Doux co-owner ErolineLamontagne.
The Green Globe Standard provides resorts and organizations with a framework to assess their environmental sustainability performance, monitor improvements and achieve certification. Under the Green Globe Standard a selection of more than 380 indicators are applied to 44 individual certification criteria. The indicators vary by type of certification, geographical and other local factors.
Hotels.com’s Certificate of Excellence recognize hotels that have achieved excellent to outstanding guest review ratings from customers around the world. To determine the initial recipients, Hotels.com analyzed its database of more than 15 million verified guest reviews to identify the hotels that consistently “go above and beyond” in customer satisfaction. TripAdvisor similarly celebrates hospitality businesses that have earned strong ratings and positive traveller reviews on TripAdvisor over the past year.
“We’re proud that our commitment to excellence is being recognized by both guests and industry professionals,” said Lamontagne. “We are continually challenging and rededicating ourselves to sustainable practices: this year cutting down on waste, energy and water use, while still delivering a memorable and authentically Saint Lucian experience for our guests.”
