What We Love

  • We loved the rainforest setting of this resort. The hotel was built on former colonial sugar plantation, so the scenic views are breathtaking.

Things to Know

  • We absolutely love the butler service and the plunge pools right outside of our rooms. You truly feel spoiled at this resort.
Reach the ultimate in luxury at this resort, where every booking comes with butler service and a private plunge pool right outside of your room. The indulgent world-class Rainforest Spa, full PADI dive facility, sumptuous waterfront dining, and chic bars and lounges ensure a luxurious St. Lucia resort vacation experience, all close to the isle's top tourist attractions. Offering space enough for families and honeymooners alike, the resort is the premier choice for discerning travelers seeking seclusion and tranquility amid unsurpassed natural beauty.

Even kids feel right at home here. They can enjoy the rainforest environment with beach walks, volcano tours, crafts and more, while learning a little marine biology along the way. The resort's concierge can help parents, who need a little "us" time, arrange to hire a babysitter, making a family vacation even better.

Another draw is the onsite Rainforest Spa. Here, the skillful staff incorporate natural, regional ingredients, like banana leaves, coconuts and aloe vera, into soothing facials, massages and other treatments. Unwind in one of the spa's treehouse gazebos, or retreat to the exotic, earthen steam room, which is warmed by volcanic spring water.

Best of all, the resort offers a pristine beach; relax in a lounger under the shade of a palapa. When you're ready to play, the sailing, snorkeling and kayaking are waiting. Don't forget diving! Each guest can enjoy one certified beach dive daily and one beginner's dive per stay, excluding Sundays. After the underwater thrills, chill by the pool as the sea breeze caresses your skin.

All that vacation fun is matched by two scrumptious restaurants for your dining pleasure. Sample local dishes at the open-air Bayside Bar & Restaurant, where you get an authentic taste of St. Lucia. With Old World charm, The Great Room has an elegant atmosphere. Here, chefs use fresh, local ingredients to create mouthwatering entrees with seared scallops and Kobe beef. Be sure to save room for the Cane Bar, where the "rummelier" guides you through a selection of national and international rums. Then it's time for sweet dreams in one of the lovely and luxurious rooms.

    DREAM Honeymoon

    My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Sugar Beach, and there are truly not enough words to describe this incredible trip! The views are absolutely breathtaking, and we felt like we were in paradise. From the moment we arrived at Sugar Beach, we were greeted with the most heart-felt welcoming from staff. Swamed, Keitha, Manaske, Sher, Tyrone, Kester and Annetta went out of their way to make us feel at home. Everyone was SO sweet and friendly- this made our experience even more special. My husband and I are already looking forward to our next trip! We can't wait to visit again!!

    Fantastic Location

    We stayed at Sugar Beach over July 4th and it was a great choice. We had considered the other top flight choices - Ledera, Chocolate, Jade Mountain, Anse Chastenet - but ultimately selected Sugar Beach because of, um, the beach. Sugar Beach seemed unique in offering views of the pitons while at the same time located on the beach. The resort was very nice and well tended, the restaurants were good, but the views from the villas were not as great as we had hoped. We reserved a Superior Luxury Villa, and were presented with a nice villa, but with no view at all - just a tangle of trees. We were able to transfer to a different villa up the road after the first night that had better views, but still not great. That said, both villas were absolutely beautiful inside - all white with a Caribbean vibe and high end bathrooms.

    Excellent Stay at Sugar Beach

    General: My boyfriend and I stayed at Sugar Beach for five nights to celebrate his birthday. I have ZERO complaints about this hotel. From the moment you walk in, everything is top-notch. We were greeted with a delicious coconut water (served in the actual coconut) and a cool towel. The resort manager, Petra, immediately came over and introduced herself and inquired about our trip. Side note about Petra: she is incredibly upbeat and nothing is too much for her or her staff. This hotel really exemplified A+ customer service. Someone is always checking in with you, the minibar is always stocked, you get little treats in your room each night, etc. Location: This hotel’s location cannot be beat. It is at the base of and in-between the two Pitons. The views from the beach/pool and rooms cannot be beat. We stayed in a Superior Sugar Mill Room (#2). We had an ocean view as well the Pitons. Even walking to the gym each morning (which is a hike because you go up the mountain- a little addition to your actual workout) has great scenery. Specifics: The spa at Sugar Beach is a must. It’s built in a series of tree houses and has such a unique feel. At the hotel, we had dinner at the Great Room and Cane Bar- both were delicious. People have commented about the prices of food- yes they are high, but you are at a 5 star resort at the base of a mountain. The price falls in line with where you’re staying. If you want to dine at Jade Mountain, contact Jade Mountain directly before your trip. Jade Mountain only accepts reservations from Sugar Beach the day of. We spoke to a few other couples who contacted JM a month prior to their trip and were able to have dinner there. Outside of the resort, we dined at both Ladera (amazing sunset) and Boucan- both were excellent. I would also recommend Sugar Beach’s sunset cruise. The views of the coastline from the Catamaran are unparalleled. Overall, the experience at Sugar Beach was amazing. We’ll be back!
