Clean accommodations with luxe perks like butlers and plunge pools
Expensive meals and room rates
At the Viceroy-affiliated 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 boasts easy access to some of St. Lucia's best dive spots, including "Superman's Flight," a popular drift dive around the base of Petit Piton. Travelers can arrange scuba excursions, as well as 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 and the elegant Great Room Restaurant. A third option, the Terrace Restaurant, is also available for breakfast and dinner daily. Reviewers love the property's clean accommodations, superb service and incredible cuisine, although some warn that a stay here isn't cheap and is best suited for couples (especially honeymooners).

Critic Reviews



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. The accommodations are exquisite, the service is superb, the amenities are extensive, and the scenery is unparalleled.



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. The resort also has several multi-bedroom residences for large families or groups.
