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:
This is a rare resort that where the exceptional standard of luxury and quality does not take away from one of the most beautiful and inspiring island spots i've ever seen. My wife and i stayed there... Read more for 5 days in early April 2015, and we kept being amazed by the character of the staff, who were truly available as seemed their job to do, but also incredibly natural and human. People who were not afraid to be themselves. We were so taken by this that i even asked the manager how this was possible. I hurt my back and many of the staff remembered and asked me how i was feeling, also remembering other things about us. If you can afford to go there, you won't be disappointed. we've traveled all over the world, and if anyone were to ask us of a special place to go in the sun and sea, this would be our number one recommendation.

The beach-side setting, beneath the mighty Pitons, is truly jaw dropping; a view I will never tire of. The main house set in beautiful gardens has a good choice of restaurants, and there is a great... Read more restaurant on the beach too. Rooms are well appointed, ours was a sugar mill room with an enormous private terrace, plunge pool and bar area. The pool is magnificent and was completely empty every day during my morning swim which was brilliant as it gets a little hectic during the day with children; a separate kids pool would be a great bonus but at least there is a kids club with lots of activities. Beach fantastic with lots of beds and attentive service. Service in general was good, staff friendly and genuine. Didn't really use the Butler service as that's not really my thing. Management very visible which is always reassuring. Read less
Very kid friendly hotel with a great kids club and kids menus in all restaurants (the kids buffet at lunch was also a plus). The nature and the beach are beautiful. The various f&b outlets are very... Read more well designed and offer good menus but are way over-priced. The butler service is not functioning at all, we would have had a better experience without any butler, if we arranged things on our own (which we did). Read less
From 2009 to 2013, I have visited the Sugar Beach (although when I first visited was known as the Jalousie Plantation) for 5 years in a row. A truly amazing experience, I found the villa structure... Read more and layout across the hillside unique, and have struggled to find something similar in other tropical countries. Having stayed in rooms 904, 109 (unfortunately destroyed by landslides a few years back) 707, 808 and 904 again, I can honestly say that whichever room you stay in it will be clean, with a lovely personal plunge pool (perfect for younger children and adults alike), and with great access to all the amenities. Granted, with higher rooms such as the 7 and 800s, the shuttle buses take a while to get up there, but, again, I found these buses a unique experience and even the journeys in these were enjoyable. The food may have been a bit pricey, but four out of five stays we were on the all inclusive plan, and the food was always up to a great standard. One of my favourite parts of this resort were the staff themselves. Returning at the same time every year for five years earns you quite a reputation among the staff, and they were always chatty, funny and accommodating, something which I find a lot of hotel staff lack nowadays. The beach area is beautiful, although sun loungers under the cabanas disappear quite fast so bag one before breakfast at about 8am. There is a pool with some sun loungers around it, but again, these often disappear quite early in the morning, so if you're desperate, it's best to head down before 8am. There are lots of great water sports available, from snorkelling to tubing and sailing, all of which I have done both with instructors and by myself and my family. There are also many activities for kids, and the kids club is excellent, so this is a great place for families. The spa is also well worth the visit; although rather expensive, it's a great way to relax, and there's a lovely little walk around the forest if you fancy exploring a little bit. With tennis courts and a gym, there's never a day where you've got nothing to do (unless you want to do nothing of course, and then this resort is great for that too!) however, if you do fancy heading out there's a lot of exploring that can be done around the pitons, and volcanoes, there's an educational zip line not far from the resort, and there's a 30 minute speedboat ride down to the main city of Castries, which is a lovely town to explore. Top Tips: - Definitely grab your favourite sun loungers before 8am! - Send children off to the kids club so they can make some friends, otherwise they will be begging you to go banana boating with them every second of the day! - Reservations for the evening restaurant is recommended - Look out for once in a lifetime sights! Watching the sun go down over the ocean is lovely, especially from higher up villas, so find out when sunset time is and watch it one evening! Also, watch out for local wildlife. We only ever saw any once, but what we did see was a huge tarantula the size of my father's foot! Didn't bother us though, as it stopped on our patio long enough to take a picture, then scuttled off into the shrubbery! Overall, Sugar Beach, and St Lucia in general, is definitely my favourite holiday destination ever, and I've been to quite a few. Well worth a visit, and I hope to return there again one day!
