Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort

St Lucia, Caribbean

The hotel

This world-class beachfront resort with stylish accommodation is nestled within a UNESCO World Heritage Site among more than 100 acres of picturesque, landscaped rainforest leading down to two white sand beaches between the majestic twin peak Piton mountains. The marine protected bay with gentle shallow water (perfect for small children) offers incredible snorkelling as the waters of Sugar Beach are part of the National Marine Reserve. The dining is celebrated and naturally there's beach waiter service for snacks and drinks. The new Beachfront Collection of Residences at Sugar Beach bring a new level of luxury to St Lucia, or opt for a Beach Bungalow, just steps from the water's edge on the white sands of Sugar Beach and sleeping two adults. All accommodations boast classic colonial style complimented by contemporary touches with a relaxed vibe, private plunge pool, butler service and unsurpassed views. From Luxury Villas sleeping two adults, up to the two bedroom Grand Luxury villas for extended families, these accommodations are simply breath taking.

BEST BEACH VACATION EVER. We stayed at the Sugar Beach Resort the first week of November. This resort is the perfect marriage of luxury and nature. It was absolutely spectacular in every way. We stayed at the Ocean Grand Villa and it was magnificent. I loved the white furniture, dark hard wood floors and beachy feel. It was spotless as well. A special place that far exceeded our expectations. Our butlers, Ethan, Michael, Gary, and Sherman were terrific. The restaurant waiters and waitresses were delightful, particularly Zenith. The spa was very unique, tree houses for each treatment room and a beautiful entry way that made you feel you were entering another world. Maria and Leah at the spa were terrific. The beach was so beautiful, White sand and calm waters that felt you were in a swimming pool. There were in-ocean rafts that you could lounge in, it was really relaxing. The pool itself was great too. Beach service was quick and efficient. The restaurants were very good. The Great Room was a fabulous meal and we loved breakfast at the Terrance and lunch at Bayside and the Beach. Food is a bit expensive but it was worth it. The hotel got us taxis to go off property. We waited at the most 1-2 minutes for the shuttles, which you have to take everywhere as the roads are very steep. The drivers were very friendly, always asking us how our day was, etc. I never minded the shuttles because they were very efficient and everywhere. This hotel is really special. It was quiet and not crowded (possibly because of when we went) but we felt pampered and special. We will definitely be back! Read less

Stayed at Sugar Beach in March 2019 and have never had a better experience or better service anywhere. Staff were all super cool, friendly, and helpful. The resort is beautiful, the beach super chill. We rented a car with the thought of exploring the island a little bit but could have easily stayed at the resort the entire time or arranged for transportation. Had the unfortunate experience of getting a flat tire on the way back to the airport. Could have easily been a day-long ordeal but as luck had it, it happened right in front of someone's house, who turned out to be a butler, Sean, at Sugar Beach. He hooked us up with a jack that actually worked and also had an air compressor to fill up the spare tire. We got to chat with Sean and his lovely fiancee while his friend Darnell helped us change the tire. Thanks to these cool people we were on our way in no time and made our flight. We encountered nothing but great people and good vibes in St. Lucia. Highly recommend and will definitely come back. Thanks again! Read less

Beautiful resort, Sugar Beach is full of lush foliage and breathtaking views of the Pitons. We stayed in a superior luxury cottage which was perfect for us. You have a private plunge pool, outside sitting & dining area. The bathroom has a separate shower, large soaking tub & even a bidget. We were in room 607, I found it a bit noisy since it's located close to the road. Your water & soda is replaced each day with ice. We ate at The Terrace each morning, we used Virtuoso which included a full breakfast. We would have lunch on the beach with drinks. We also ate at Bayfront for dinner which was expensive for mediocre food. We had room service, the food was good & arrived under 1 hour. Favorite place for dinner was Dasheene at Ladera. Our Butlers took care of us, Gary, Michael & Sherman, they made dinner reservations, arranged for off site taxi($50 roundtrip), transportation pickup etc. The food is expensive expect to pay $100-200 for each meal plus drinks for 2 people. The beach is beautiful. Employees stop by to clean your sunglasses, offer cold towels and an afternoon fruit snack. Sugar Beach is open to many people using the beach for snorkeling & beach use from cruise ships and other resorts. Note: the rooms do not have Smart TVs which is surprising since most hotel brands have them now i.e. Ritz Carlton. Read less
