TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
Fond Doux and Le Chocolat Boucan have made arrangements with the hotel so that their guests can use this beach. (We also stopped here with the Mystic Man Sunset Cruise.) It is just lovely! Quiet... Read more and serene. There's a very nice bar and they were serving patrons under the trees. There are fancy chairs (for the guests) and on a corner of the beach lesser chairs (I assume for the guests from other hotels.) There's even a little shop were they sold souvenirs and T shirts. A wonderful stop. Might even consider checking out the hotel for a future trip. Read less
Spent a long weekend here with my family celebrating my husbands birthday. What a beautiful luxurious stunning resort set in between two magnificent pitons. Cant say enough about this place. Its... Read more absolutely wonderful. Beautifully appointed villas/rooms ... fabulous staff, delicious food and just a great experience all round. This one resort that we will 100% revisit. The kids had a wonderful time. We had a large villa with sofa bed so were comfortably able to sleep 2 adults & 2 children ... there was even room for an extra roll out bed in our room. Very spacious indeed. Free standing bath and double shower room. Mosquito nets on four poster high beds and nice luxury linens and pillows. Our butlers were wonderful, they were stationed close by and were available immediately. Thank you Alex and Erin for looking after us. Small mokes/mini buses and rickshaws transport you around from place to place smoothly and in a fun fashion. The spa is a rainforest style set up which adds to the experience, kids spa services available too which is really nice. We took two trips during our stay which i highly highly recommend. One was to the mineral waterfalls were you can bath and swim in heated water, this is just about 5 mins away from the resort but take a car/taxi as you will be exhausted and unable to walk the hill unless you are mega fit. Really loved this. And the second trip was to the Sulphur Springs & Mud Bath ... fab fun and the whole family loved this. Go early like 8/9am if you want to bath in the heated water. It get really hot otherwise. Mud bath was great, but take a dark coloured costume or swim shorts to avoid clothes being stained an orangey colour. Very stinky up there but its all part of the wonderful experience. You really wont want to leave the resort but make the effort to take these trips. Hope this review helps. Enjoy Read less
My wife and I recently enjoyed a 6-night honeymoon stay in St. Lucia in a villa at Sugar Beach. To put it plainly, our entire experience at Sugar Beach was sensational. While we weren't greeted by... Read more the pre-arranged transfer to our hotel, we made off easily in a cab. From the moment we arrived on the property and were welcomed by our butler, to the endless smiles and helpful staff we encountered during activities and at restaurants, this was bar none the best resort I've encountered. Upon entering our room, the bed was adorned with flower buds and leaves were arranged to spell "Welcome Congratulations" A warm, welcoming touch and a sign that they cared. We were also treated with a small bottle of Chairman's Reserve rum, a bowl of fresh fruit and some dried plantains. Our villa was nestled along the hillside perched above the resort. While the pathways were a bit too steep for walking to and from the other resort amenities, a simple call to our butler with the provided cell phone brought a shuttle to our room within 5 minutes. The resort food was generally overpriced, but there were easy ways to avoid a $24 chicken sandwich: Pitons Lagers, a local beer, are $5, and for lunch, the personal pizzas run between $10 - $20. We did not sign-up for a MAP plan, and based on how our daily spending stacked up against the cost of the food plans, I would not recommend it. Some days we arrived at the beach early and some late in the morning, but seating was always easy to find. Water sport equipment such as snorkeling gear and paddle boards can be easily obtained from the hut at the end of the beach free-of-charge. The was a buoyed off area for snorkeling just off to the side of the beach, which boasted some spectacular underwater life. Both food and drinks are easy to order on the beach or at the nearby bar throughout the day. The other restaurants have more strict operating hours for lunch and dinner. We participated in several organized tours / activities that I would highly recommend: Gros Piton hike by the Sea, Sulphur Springs Treatment (complete with mud bath and waterfall visit) and the sunset cruise. As a highlight during our hike, the parents of one of the guides had cooked a spread of local fare for us to enjoy after we made our return descent. It was both a pleasant surprise that a family member had contributed to our experience and a cool opportunity to enjoy a taste of the local food. We also treated ourselves to two appointments at the Rainforest Spa and were quite happy with both massage treatments. At $90 / person, BBQ night at the Bayside was pricey but one of the best meals we had on the island. The all-you-can-eat buffet contained a bevy of fresh veggies, fruits, meats and fish. Don't be afraid to venture outside the resort, too. We had dinner at Dasheene Restaurant at Ladera, which was a short cab ride off the property. Situated atop the hills that overlook Sugar Beach, the views were breathtaking and the food flavorful. We also dined at Boucan, the Hotel Choclat restaurant just across the road from Ladera. Once again, we were impressed both by the atmosphere and cuisine. At the end of the day, the real difference maker in the entire trip was the Sugar Beach team. Many staff members came to know us by name, acknowledging our presence with a smile each time we approached. Neither of us have a single bad thing to say about any of the interactions we had during the entirety of our stay. Sugar Beach provides a relaxing and luxurious atmosphere in which guests are made to feel pampered. We sure did, and I wouldn't doubt if we find ourselves back at Sugar Beach again soon. Read less
My husband and I stayed at Sugar Beach Resort in January, 2014, as part of a 35th anniversary trip that involved a lot of planning and saving. We were upgraded from a Sugar Mill Room to a villa on... Read more the 500 level which was highly appreciated. Everything that has been previously said about this resort is true--- gorgeous location, superb staff, fantastic accommodations! The location between the Pitons is spectacular. It imparts a feeling of the South Pacific--- Bali Hai is calling! The staff, especially the most wonderful Peter, our butler, provided topnotch service. We are privileged to call him a friend. The view and amenities in the villa were amazing! The Rainforest Spa provides an unparalleled experience. The beach was hauntingly beautiful; not a wide expanse of sand, nor the clearest water, but small and jewel-like between the mystical pitons. The pool was large and lap-worthy, for those of us who like to get their workouts that way, The grounds are immaculate with tropical flowers at every venue. We are so glad to have stayed there, yet, I'm not sure that it totally suited us. Here are some observations, none of which are negative, yet provide food for thought. The villas are beautiful, but a hike to the main resort. The shuttles were usually prompt and the ride is quite nice. Often, however, we opted to walk down the hill, which took us about 10 minutes, and then take the shuttle back up the hill. This is not the most convenient of situations. Now, a demographic observation: It seems like this resort is cashing in on the location wedding, honeymoon, young family crowd. (Where DO they get their money???) My husband and I are in our early sixties, very active and very curious travelers. We like to balance being comfortable with exploring. We have made many good friends in the past while traveling. At one point, we looked around and said said, "my God, we are the oldest people here!" We saw very few people in our age range, and we are SO beyond the honeymoon thing. This is particular to us and not a reflection on the resort, however, I might give pause to stay there again. Another issue is the feeling of being isolated. We opted not to rent a car because we are unfamiliar with the mountainous roads, a decision which I now regret. As I previously mentioned, we love to explore, but any exploration aspirations were quickly squashed. It is $50 roundtrip taxi ride to go into town to go to the market. If you plan on going to dinner anywhere out of the resort, you can add a $50 taxi fee to your bill. We booked a trip to Castries sponsored by SBR, only to have it cancelled for lack of participation. To this date, I have never seen the capital city of Castries, which is a shame, because we may be 100 by the next time we get there! We did hire a local taxi driver to show us the local sights, went to the market twice and had drinks at Hotel Chocolate. These were the few times we were able to leave the resort. The last observation was the food situation. We had no problems with the quality of the food, and found the Bayside Restaurant quite to our liking. We did not opt for the all-inclusive plan, because we believed that we wanted to experience local restaurants. How wrong we were! Unless you plan on bleeding money for taxis, a better choice is the all-inclusive. The Friday night beach barbecue is $95 pp. There are no other options, and we are not big eaters. I do fault the resort for not publicizing this more and making travel agents aware. We had a small 'fridge in the villa, but no way of cooking snacks. We were able to get some milk and cereal for breakfast and fruit, yogurt, bread, cold cuts and cheese for lunch. Even a microwave would have been appreciated, as our "menu" was limited. On the other hand, who wants to waste time sitting in a restaurant three times a day? In summary, this is a gorgeous and friendly resort with amazing amenities and people. If you want a resort to stay at and not leave, this should be your first choice. If, however, you are independent and want to explore, or are of a "certain age," you might want to think it through a bit more. Read less
My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Sugar Beach in early September. If you're searching for a secluded, romantic getaway, look no further than this oasis between the Pitons. From start to... Read more finish, we were well accommodated for thanks to the caring and friendly staff in each facet of the resort. Our butlers were ready to help at a moment's notice. Swammid should be given a medal because he went above and beyond the calling and helped me quickly rid of a little sinus congestion I had. When my husband stepped on a sea urchin, Gregg and Dwight both assisted us with making sure he was properly taken care of to ease the pain in his foot. We stayed in a 300 level villa that was perfectly situated with a view of the Pitons. We also had the most breathtaking experience watching the sun set under the horizon every evening. Our plunge pool was a delightful treat and the room was perfectly comfortable and clean. A special thank you to Vernessa, Dona and Tyrone for being fantastic servers; Sherman in Concierge for his professional attitude; Chico and Terry for being the best drivers on the resort; and Hilary and Merton for being amazing bartenders and our newly made friends in the Cane Bar. We had the pleasure to converse with Julian Jaumard, one of the managers on site and a genuinely kind person. Chef Sidney Prescott also prepared us a lovely four course meal of fresh yellowfin tuna we caught the same day; it was the best meal we ate during our stay and we're still talking about it! If you are staying here or considering it, do so if not for anything but their rainforest spa. I'd go so far as to say the couples massage was a life enhancing experience. The only downfall which is entirely unavoidable were the pesky mosquitoes. You are in the middle of the rainforest, so it's to be expected. Bug repellant doesn't always work, but don't let it deter you from coming to enjoy all that Sugar Beach has to offer. Also, take advantage of the all inclusive option as you'll save more money in the long run. We also didn't have to worry about allotting funds for each meal and therefore, the supplemental charges for upgrades on food and beverages weren't that big of a deal. The only suggestion we have for the resort is to expand the menu as it was slightly limited and we did get tired of the same meal options after a week. Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better honeymoon. We will not only recommend Sugar Beach to our family and friends but hope to return again in the near future! Read less
