Sugar Beach A Viceroy Resort

Soufriere • Saint Lucia

Formerly a working sugar plantation, the property has a long history of owners including Lord Glenconner, famously known for his friendship with Princess Margaret, and as the proprietor of the Bang Restaurant.

The resort is currently owned by Roger Myers and completed a three-year multi-million dollar transition that saw the property re-branded and re-launched as Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort on November 30, 2012, under the continued management of the Viceroy Hotel Group.

Follow a winding road through the rainforest to discover a tropical paradise where platinum sands are framed by the Piton mountains and white-washed villas are tucked into the hillside. This former sugar plantation has been transformed into a contemporary and intimate resort where elegance and relaxation are the order of the day

Meet your butler upon arrival and feel any stresses melt away as you are handed a mobile device that allows you to contact them at any time - whether you crave an icy mojito, wish to book dinner in a romantic spot, or arrange for the shuttle to whisk you up the hill. Snorkel in search of colourful marine life or stroll along winding wooden walkways to the enchanting Rainforest Spa where treehouse treatment cabanas are connected by bridges.

Breakfast is served at the Terrace - set in the elegant Great House. Enjoy relaxed al fresco meals at the beachside Bayside Restaurant and Caribbean-influenced elegant dining at the Great Room or head to the Cane Bar, a speciality rum bar, for sushi platters and an Asian-themed menu. Romantic private dining experiences are available with tiki torchlights on the beach or under the stars on your own private terrace.

The first-class Rooms, Villas, Beach Bungalows and Residences feature a classic colonial style complemented with contemporary touches and each comes complete with a private plunge pool and butler service. The Luxury Sugar Mill Rooms are close to the main facilities while Luxury Villas are set high in the hillside. Luxury Beachfront Bungalows offer direct beach access and are just steps from the water's edge.
