ST. LUCIA’S FOND DOUX RESORT AWARDED CERTIFICATE OF EXCELLENCE
SOUFRIERE, St. Lucia (May 30, 2012) – The Fond Doux Holiday Plantation resort in the old colonial town of Soufrière, St. Lucia has been awarded a top honor from one of the world’s largest travel sites.
TripAdvisor, congratulating Fond Doux Holiday Plantation on earning the prestigious 2012 Certificate of Excellence award, noted, “Our travelers consistently commend your property with the highest praise, and we recognise your 4.5 rating as an exceptional achievement.”
The Fond Doux owners were told by TripAdvisor, “Only the very best in the business are awarded a Certificate of Excellence — display yours proudly in a place where your guests can see it.”
A delighted Eroline Lamontagne, general manager of the award-winning resort, was especially pleased with the TripAdvisor honors because “they are the most highly respected site and those who write the reviews are savvy travelers of means who prefer to stay in more alluring properties with their own colorful stories.”
Lamontagne said Fond Doux was able to offer a unique plantation experience “thanks to the dedication and hard work of our staff, most of whom are local and personally feel the unique beauty and history of this very special part of the Caribbean.”
Her husband and co-owner Lyton Lamontagne, a distinguished conservationist, said the highly coveted TripAdvisor award also vindicated his insistence on using existing local structures to maintain cultural authenticity at Fond Doux.
The Certificate of Excellence award honors hospitality excellence. The accolade is given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveler reviews on TripAdvisor, and is extended to qualifying businesses worldwide. Approximately 10 percent of accommodations listed on TripAdvisor receive this prestigious award.
