At Sugar Beach, you don't have to book a lavish villa to experience high-end amenities. Each room features a private walled garden, a plunge pool and personalized butler service. In addition to the plush accommodations, Sugar Beach also boasts easy access to some of St. Lucia's best diving spots, including "Superman's Flight," a popular drift dive around the base of Petit Piton. Travelers can arrange for scuba excursions, in addition to island tours through the resort. If you want to experience Petit Piton, but in a more laid-back atmosphere, consider indulging in a treatment at the Rainforest Spa, located at the base of the mountain. Refuel for more island exploration and relaxation at the three on-site restaurants, including the casual beachfront Bayside Restaurant or the elegant Great Room (the Terrace is only open for breakfast). Recent guests gave mixed reviews of the service, with some saying it was subpar for the price paid.

Located in Val des Pitons, the steep valley (once a sugar plantation) between the Pitons and the most dramatic 192 acres in St. Lucia, magnificent private villas are tucked into the dense tropical foliage that covers the hillside and reaches down to the sea.
Fodor's Choice


Sugar Beach is one of the island's few luxury resorts (or resorts in general) that welcome kids, and the Sugar Club (for ages 4–12) offers supervised activities like treasure hunts, karaoke, and hula hooping; the Spice Club (teens and tweens) has group activities like Snuba, archery, beach badminton, and movies under the stars.

A $100 million renovation of a former sugarcane plantation on the dramatic west coast’s choicest spot—the steep mountainside and small white-sand beach between the island’s famous volcanic Pitons.
