Nestled in 192 acres of magnificent rainforest and sweeping majestically down to sea, Sugar Beach is located in one of the most awe-inspiring locations in the world, the majestic valley of The Pitons. Each first-class villa is placed uniquely and privately amongst the lush green foliage and soaring trees to give you the feeling of being at one with nature and with that, the feeling of complete serenity. 
Location: Beachfront in the South Western part of St Lucia about 3 miles outside the town of Soufriere, 45 minutes from Hewanorra International Airport.

Best place I’ve ever visited!

Sugar beach is by far the most spectacular spot we have visited. It is not only awe-inspiring with its location between the Pitons, but the staff are second to none. We have visited the St. Regis in bora bora and had butler service with our room, but the butler service here is tops. Not only that, but the staff is incredibly well trained and they do not know the word “no”. From the shuttle (Tuk Tuk) drivers to the manager, they are all knowledgeable about everything the hotel has to offer. The sommelier Pascal is fabulous, and, also now a friend. He went above and beyond to care of us at our dinners by offering private tastings, and even delivering spectacular Champagne to us on the beach. Denver, our waiter at the Great Room is beyond amazing and the food is superior. He is now a friend of ours after our visit and we can’t wait to see him next time. Try the tasting menu! After dinner visit the Cane Bar. It’s a great spot to kick back and enjoy some of the local rum, Admiral Rodney, which is more like a whiskey than a rum given it is aged in old bourbon barrels. We can’t say enough amazing things about this place. It’s a must visit and experience! Honestly, words and pictures can’t do it justice! We booked another vacation with Sugar Beach while we were there to bring our two young boys back in five months. We love it that much!

Simply Amazing

Visit this resort for a nice little getaway. The stay was absolutely amazing. We had the chance to check out every aspect too. We dined at all the outlets, had amazing massages, went snorkeling, laid by the beach daily and our room was perfect. Efe took such good care of us and helped make our stay special. 5 days was just not enough there. We can wait to come back!

The location is sensational.The prices are crazy, you have to forget the cost if you are there and enjoy .The cost on pricelists are bad enough , but 10% service charge and 10% tax on top can bring tears to the strongest of constitutions. I wish the resort would adopt the same tipping process as Sandy Lane in Barbados , where you tip at the end of your holiday . Here the billing process and the expectation of the staff for tips on top of the 10% service charge follows the American expectation of tipping.If you can afford to come here then close your eyes when the bills / checks arrive for your signature.The staff are a mixed bag , maybe as it was the start of the season when we visited there were a lot of confused members of staff. Annette at breakfast was amazing, when she had two days off the standard slipped.The ''butler'' system is not to be confused with a true butler system that you will receive at other resorts , especially in the far east. This ''butler'' is no more than a personal concierge , to reserve tables and obtain taxis. Our butler Michaela , was lovely, she was very friendly and a fine ambassador for the resort.Ensure that you visit the managers meeting , it is the only time you will see most of them , and tell them the truth. Most people as they have paid lots to be there adopt thr 'Emperors new clothes ' mentality and tell them all is great.There is much room for improvement in many areas , for instance after dinner , there is nowhere to go , entertainment starts and finishes early , this really needs to be addressed. As recent hurricanes have damaged many islands in the region , the occupancy rates in the resort will be high. Fate has played into their hands , but much of the resort has a tired feel , a touch of paint here and there and the tending to the trees and foliage . The building of villas on the estate in the opinion of many guests have diverted the attention away from more mundane routine matters. We had a restful and relaxing stay , we met many people who became friends. Observations are not always criticisms, my fiance and myself have stayed in many lovely places in this region and we could see the potential and the failings present.This place could learn a lot from other similar resorts in the Caribbean , I believe that they should have more local people in the senior managment team . They need more of the local joy and happiness to permeate through the resort . They need improved staff training , the workforce did not seem happy in their jobs in comparison with other local resorts , such as Ladera resort . When we visited to dine there, the staff there were less well remunerated than at Sugar Beach (A Viceroy resort) but appeared much happier and joyous and friendlier .In summary , great natural beauty , it could be paradise .By the nature of the clientelle most of the guests here will have very high expectations , and will be experienced travellers , so the observations above are only made to encourage this resort to achieve its potential .

Visiting friends

Sugar Beach stands out for the attention to detail and consistently friendly and helpful staff. Food is superb, with good range of choice. The setting is out of this world, nestled between 2 dramatic volcanic mini mountains, the Pitons. Service is excellent: instant availability of free transport around the resort, often in pink tuktuks, butler service for each room extremely helpful and all staff are friendly and attentive. Beachfront is lovely and excellent beachfront bars and restaurants. Decent sized fresh water pool for exercise or lounging. We stayed in a bungalow which was elegant, well laid out and cleverly designed to be completely private. Views from our terrace were superb. The air conditioning works well. All in all a top class and brilliant place to relax and enjoy the Caribbean.
