This hotel's stylish accommodation is nestled within more than 100 acres of picturesque, landscaped rainforest leading down to a white sand beach between the world's most famous twin peaks. The Pitons are a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site and the hotel is surrounded by natural habitats. Down at the amazing beach, with gentle shallow water (perfect for small children) the snorkelling is incredible as the waters off Sugar Beach are part of the National Marine Reserve. The little ones have all the normal activities, as well as classes on the island's volcano and rainforest! The dining is celebrated and naturally there's beach waiter service for snacks and drinks. The new Luxury Beachfront Bungalows at Sugar Beach bring a new level of luxury to St Lucia. Just steps from the water's edge and on the white sands of Sugar Beach and sleeping two adults, these accommodations boast up to the minute contemporary style and furnishings with a relaxed beach vibe, private jacuzzi and unsurpassed ocean views. The Luxury Villas have more traditional plantation style furnishings, dark wood floors and contrasting white linens with the backdrop of the stunning Piton Mountains. All have private plunge pools and an outdoor living area. From Luxury Villas sleeping 2 adults up to the 2 bedroom Grand Luxury villas for extended families, these accommodations are simply breath taking.

TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
Stayed here on our anniversary trip. We have stayed at some fantastic places but this beat them all. So glad we chose this over Jade Mountain which we did dine at. We loved having our private pool... Read more and deck with view. The staff goes way overboard to arrange anything. The butlers are always helpful but never obtrusive. You are on the famed sugar beach which boats do come in daily to snorkel but they cannot enter the hotels portion of the beach. Also people staying at Hotel Chocolat and Ladera came to our beach but had no chairs to lie on or rent so just used towels. This is the place to stay I have no idea why you would go all the way to St Lucia to stay at the developed end of the island here you are looking at Gros Piton and have the culture and agriculture. Simply put if you can afford it Sugar Beach is the only place to stay! Also don't be afraid to sight see these are the friendliest people they are so proud of their island and want to show it off. We took boat taxis and even walked through town with a man that loves to give tours! Read less
I went to Sugar Beach with my now husband to get married. Everything about the experience was perfect, and we couldn't have asked for more. The staff were so attentive and friendly, nothing was too... Read more much trouble. The food in all of the restaurants was great, and with three restaurants of different styles there was plenty of choice so we didn't get bored. The setting was just perfect. It was like paradise. We stayed in a Luxury Villa and I was blown away by the view from our terrace when I first arrived. The Villa itself was also perfect; lovely and clean and light. To be honest, I could rave about Sugar Beach for ever. It was the perfect setting for our wedding and we will definitely be coming back Read less
Firstly, let me start by saying that this hotel could and should be getting 5/5. It is, without doubt one of the most beautiful places I have every stayed in my life. Nestled between the Piton... Read more mountains, with the rooms dotted about the rainforest, you could not ask for a more picturesque location. The rooms themselves (we had a grand luxury pool villa) are also absolutely lovely, built in an old colonial style, and very well appointed. However, there are a couple of (easily fixable - at least the main one) issues that spoil this. Firstly is the service. It is very friendly, but quite slow and haphazard. This might just be the Caribbean way though, and something I would be willing for forgive, but for the below. The main problem with this resort is the food, which is TERRIBLE! It is massively overpriced, of a low quality (considering the cost) and the selection available is depressingly uninspiring. An average 3 course meal costs in the region of 90 USD pp + VAT, so roughly 100 USD or Â£70. In London (not exactly somewhere known for its bargain prices), if you pay Â£70 for just food (this price does not include drinks) then you would expect Michelin starred food, and likely a tasting menu. The food at Sugar Beach is not of a particularly high quality in general (the dishes are often under-seasoned, overcooked or made using frozen ingredients) and in London I would not expect to pay even half that amount for this standard of cooking. Worst of all, however, is the selection of food itself. The aptly named Executive Chef of the Viceroy group, Jacques Chretien, has taken the cretinous decision that people travelling to the Caribbean do not want to try the local food, but would rather have a bland array of vaguely European dishes, the likes of which you could eat at any corporate hotel, anywhere in the world. The best items on the menus were the local Caribbean ones, but these were few and far between. I understand that some travellers will not be adventurous in their tastes, but most people who travel to hotels of this standard will surely want to try the local food. With St Lucia having both Caribbean and Creole culture, its not as if this is some culinary wasteland. There were only a couple such dishes on the Bayside and in-room menus and none at all in the Great Room. Night after night my wife and I would stare at the menus, hoping in vain to see something we actually wanted to eat. One night we even had to resort to ordering pizza. It is depressing enough to be eating pizza when you're next to the sea (where is all the fresh fish that the taxi driver told us about on the way to the hotel?), but to add insult to injury, the pizza base was obviously pre-bought and frozen (as had been some of the fish we'd tried on prior nights). Good quality kitchens embrace local ingredients and cuisines, but chefs who lack confidence and skill tend to try and hide behind expensive ingredients (who really wants to eat sautÃ©ed fois gras in St Lucia?). My advice to the Viceroy group is to get rid of the current Executive Chef and bring somebody in who embraces localism. High end luxury travellers are a fickle lot and it doesn't take much to cause upset, driving them into the arms of the competition. Six Senses at Freedom Bay is coming shortly, just up the road from Sugar Beach. If my experience of their other properties is anything to go by, they will not make the same mistakes with the food. I am likely to return to St Lucia, as it really is beautiful, but when I do, I will be staying at the Six Senses. Read less
We visited Sugar Beach on our honeymoon and would highly recommend it. Our trip was so relaxing. The resort feels very private and exclusive, located between the two Pitons. The private cove is... Read more beautiful and has some great snorkeling. The staff went above and beyond to make us feel at home for our 10-day visit. Great food and drinks. Caroline and CJ at the pool/beach were so friendly and welcoming. We loved it and would definitely go back! Read less
