The Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort is without question located in one of the most spectacular sites in the world, the majestic valley of the Pitons (Val des Pitons). The beauty of the Pitons, listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, is unparalleled. The atmosphere is unobtrusive and lends to a truly intimate and relaxed experience. The resort is spread across more than one hundred acres of tropical forest unsurpassed for its natural beauty, with the only white sand beach in the area. 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 the once famous proprietor of the Bang Restaurant. Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort is located on the south western part of St. Lucia about 3 miles outside the town of Soufriere, between the world famous Pitons. Soufriere is a historic town with the island’s main natural attractions; the drive-in volcano, botanical gardens and waterfalls in close proximity. It is a 45 minute drive from Hewannorra International Airport (UVF) and one hour and 20 minutes From George F.L. Charles Airport (SLU).
Located on the site of an 18th century sugar plantation and within more than 100 acres of lush rainforest, Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort has retained its vintage French Caribbean charm with elegant upgrades for ultimate enjoyment. All guestrooms feature balconies with ocean, mountain, or garden views in addition to premium cable channels and VCRs.
A variety of recreational activities exist on site including an outdoor pool and spa tub, a full-service spa, and many water sports.
What to Expect:
The resort comprises a steeply pitched, densely forested, natural amphitheater cupped between the Pitons, with Petit Piton’s sheer wall on the north side appearing close enough to touch. This dramatic setting attracts guests seeking snorkeling, diving, and hiking, as well as couples desiring privacy-with-a-view in rooms and villas. Shuttles transport guests around the resort.
The resort faces secluded Jalousie Bay between St. Lucia’s signature twin peaks, Petit Piton and Gros Piton. A beach of light-colored sand fronts the bay. Petit Piton rises above the Caribbean Sea adjacent to the resort, and floats designate a snorkeling/diving area beside the mountain’s wall. Use of snorkeling gear is complimentary; scuba diving is available for a surcharge.
