Fond Doux Eco Resort was awarded the 2022 America’s Best Sustainable Hotel at the prestigious World Boutique Awards.

The winners of Boutique Hotel Awards 2022 were announced on 8th November 2022. Judges applauded Fond Doux Eco Resort for its sustainable ethos. A collection of restored colonial buildings on a working cocoa estate, Fond Doux is the perfect place for guests to explore St Lucia’s fascinating natural and historic heritage. Dinner at the Farm-to-Table restaurant (with many ingredients grown on the plantation) is unmissable.

A boutique hotel awards judge added that the Owners, Eroline and Lyton Lamontagne, have gone to great lengths to preserve and protect the island’s precious resources. Their goal is to share their heritage and rich culture with their guests.

“The Boutique Hotel Awards is the first and only international awards organisation exclusively dedicated to recognising unique excellence among boutique hotels. The Awards, now in its 12th year, honours the people behind these outstanding properties and brings together members of The Master Key Society, where relationships are built exclusively among the Award Winners by facilitating hotel exchange visits between them.

An excited Eroline Lamontagne Executive Director of the Fond Doux Eco Resort expressed that “We are honoured and humbled to receive this award as Sustainability is at the core of our purpose, culture and business as we accelerate our contributions to a sustainable and inclusive world.”

The winners were selected from over 250 Nominees in over 70 countries. Each entrant was nominated by a member of the Awards Nomination Committee, comprising 30 leading travel experts, whose business it is to be ‘in-the-know’ concerning the extraordinary boutique hotels. Covid proved an enormous challenge to the World Boutique awards process, but despite the shifting sands and moving goalposts of government restrictions, the World Boutique Awards judges have managed to travel the globe to review each hotel and villa.

Lyton Lamontagne, Managing Director of the Fond Doux Eco Resort expressed his thanks to the World Boutique Hotel Awards for their continuous recognition towards their commitment to sustainability. He further extended his thanks to all those who have journeyed with them over the years including the dedicated Fond Doux team and valued guests of the Eco resort.
