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.

TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
We have just returned from two short trips to this hotel. The first time we stayed in a Sugar Mill room and loved seeing the humming birds in "our" garden each day. The second time we were upgraded... Read more to a beach bungalow and loved the position on the beach. What a beautiful place this is! The rooms are very attractive and well laid out and the butler service is useful and not over attentive as I had feared it might be. It was a treat to be driven straight to our rooms and not have to check in at reception first. We enjoyed the breakfast each morning and there was a great choice of food, freshly cooked to order as well as from the buffet. My husband and children enjoyed the diving with the watersports centre and went twice. The dinners had enough choice to satisfy my picky 12 year old as well as the rest of us although the variety on the menu was limited. There was very little fish on the menu which was surprising, given that we were right there on the sea. I have very few criticisms of this hotel but maintenance was not quite as good as it should be for such a fabulous hotel. For example, all the lights on the pathway from our beach bungalow were not working so, on our way to dinner we had to pick our way carefully with torches we had luckily brought with us. But, this is just a minor thing, and it was a lovely hotel in a fabulous place. The cocktails are jolly good too! Read less
We stayed at Sugar Beach for six days (five nights) in mid-August. We arrived at 2:15pm, a little before check in time, and did our paperwork, stored our bags with the concierge, and proceeded down... Read more to the Bayside Grill for a quick lunch. After lunch, we were greeted by our butler McHaille who showed us to our room. It was so much more than a room.. it was a Grand Luxury Villa (#814). Absolutely stunning! Over 1000 s.f., with a sitting room and 1/2 bath, bedroom with four-poster king bed, full size walk-in closet, and a bathroom suite that was easily the size of most hotel rooms. The deck, complete with plunge pool, overlooked the property and allowed us a view of both the pitons and the ocean. McHaille offered to unpack our bags, and we took him up on the offer. We then proceeded to relax after our travel to the resort, made dinner plans, and explored the property by foot. When we arrived back to our room, our bags had been unpacked and all our clothes and toiletries were carefully folded, stored in drawers and/or placed carefully on the counter (as appropriate). (My wife has since decided she could get used to that kind of service.) Throughout our visit, our butler staff (McHaille and Cordy) were attentive, responsive and accommodating to our requests. They made dinner reservations for us nightly, arranged spa treatments, diving reservations at the beach, and answered our many questions about the property, the island, food... pretty much everything we asked about. We enjoyed the high level of attention that the butler staff provided to us during our stay. Our room included breakfast daily at The Terrace as part of our plan, however we did not choose the All Inclusive upgrade. This allowed us the freedom to eat wherever we wanted, and to go "off property" for sightseeing without feeling like we were missing out a prepaid meal. Breakfast was very nice. Pastries, cheeses, cold meats, yoghurt, cereals, and cooked breakfast options ensured that we were pleasantly full each morning. (Note: when you have breakfast included with your room, you can have it delivered to your patio for a nominal $18 delivery fee, but the food is all included so no charge... quite a nice surprise.) The Bayside Restaurant was our favorite place for lunch and dinner. The food was consistently good, service was prompt and the variety was nice. We had dinner at the Great Room one night, and it was fine but expensive. Our dinners (I had pork, my wife had steak) were creatively prepared, beautifully presented, and not quite enough food to satisfy us. (We ended up getting a pizza from the beach bar after dinner.) We did a marine reserve dive with Joseph from the water sports desk. His SNUBA program was perfect for us and allowed us a 30 minute dive in the strikingly pretty Piton Marine Reserve which is adjacent to the hotel beach. The hotel beach is nice, with soft white sand. The swimming area has some rocks in the sand, but some water shoes will protect anyone with tender feet (like me). The hotel's beach is a fishing priority area, meaning that when the fisherman want to set nets for fish on the beach, they get priority. We only saw this on one day, and they only had one part of the beach cordoned off. We looked at it like "these guys need to make a living" and it didn't bother us in the least. On Monday evening, we attended the manager's reception and met the hotel General Manager, Mr. André Boersma. We enjoyed some appetizers and wine, and met several couples, before going to dinner. After dinner, we stopped by the Cane Bar and enjoyed a few games of pool with the new friends we met at the reception earlier that evening. We dined at Boucan Restaurant (at Hotel Chocolat) one evening, and found the food there (all of which is made with some form of chocolate or cocoa) to be very nice. We used Real St. Lucia Tours for our airport transfer to and from the resort, and also for a private sightseeing tour during our stay. On our last day, our driver met us at our room to collect our luggage after our butler took care of the check-out for us (he offered to pack our bags, but we decided to do that ourselves... after all, packing dirty clothes at the end of vacation is pretty easy). Bugs are a bit of a hassle on the island. I had a few bites, and my wife was the "favorite meal" of the local mosquitos and sand fleas/no-see-ums. Deep Woods OFF and the citronella non-DEET spay was virtually ineffective. We only found relief with 1% hydrocortisone cream and Benadryl pills (which side effect of making one sleepy is great when you are really itchy and can't sleep otherwise). Shuttles are a necessity when traveling between parts of the resort. From our room, the beach was a 10-15 minute walk mostly downhill.. and something I wouldn't want to attempt in the opposite direction. Shuttle service is prompt -- we never waited more more than 5 minutes when calling for a ride. Overall, we are very pleased with our choice of Sugar Beach for our holiday on St. Lucia. Read less
We went to Sugar Beach for our honeymoon in July 2014, and had a lovely stay. The setting was very peaceful and romantic, and the rooms were beautiful. The pool area was very clean and quiet and... Read more there were attentive staff who were always on hand to help. The buggies were really useful for getting back to our room as we were near the top of the hill, and the door staff in particular Sherman, were very welcoming. The food was delicious, I never had a bad meal and we never felt pestered by the staff who were all extremely polite. We had a butler, Gus, who was always cheerful and helpful. As you are in the rainforest you will need extra strong mosquito repellent - the bites are very sore and itchy, and this was the only downfall which couldn't really be helped. We had a fantastic time and Sugar Beach was very luxourious, perfect for a honeymoon. Read less
We stayed at Sugar Beach for 4 nights during our week in St Lucia and being there really makes you feel like the rest of the world doesn't exist. It is the height of luxury with 3 butlers to see to... Read more our every need, gorgeous villa accommodation and a stunning white sand beach with cabanas to lounge and food and drink only a flag away. The pool was also very lovely and the service on the beach impeccable. Everyone on the staff was so happy and upbeat. Food was good but very expensive to match the accommodation price. The night we arrived was a BBQ buffet which they had already booked us for at nearly US$100 per person. I must say that the blueberry French toast I had for breakfast was the best breakfast I've ever had. Overall, it was an amazing stay and if we could afford it, we would be back there in a heartbeat.

This review is a bit late considering we travelled in June 2013 but I felt compelled to write a review as the resort is so wonderful! Sugar Beach was one of my favorite holidays, hands down. From... Read more the absolutely unreal location between the two Pitons to the 'butler service' to the food/drinks- this place is 5-star luxury. We had a pool suite room with an infinity pool overlooking the beach and Pitons. The room was clean, luxurious and new. We loved the laid back vibe of the resort- it all felt very casual but with elegant, luxurious ammenities. The food was incredible, as was drink and beverage service on the beach. Absolutely amazing snorkeling. The only downside (which honestly really isn't a downside) is that you have to take golf carts due to the hills but considering they are just a phone call away, it really isn't that much of a burden. Sugar Beach will always have a special place in my heart as it is where I got engaged to my husband. It truly is a gem. I can't say enough about the place and hope one day to return!! Read less
