The site of a former 18th Century sugar plantation, the aptly-named Sugar Beach, a Viceroy Resort has attracted quite the celebrity following, counting Matt Damon and Gwyneth Paltrow amongst its fans. And for good reason. Yes, the sand is exceedingly white and powdery, the service is genuinely superb and the location between the majestic Pitons makes this the premier address on St Lucia, but there is much more to this exceptional beachfront resort than first meets the eye. From sampling gourmet fare in the charming Great Room restaurant to exploring the renowned dive sites by the National Marine Reserve, Sugar Beach, St Lucia offers an exceptionally diverse itinerary, leaving you free to relax or explore as little or as much as you desire. As for the accommodation, white walls contrast with dark wood floors, a private plunge pool glitters on the terrace and in the butler-serviced villas, a claw foot bath promises deep-soak relaxation. Just steps from the water’s edge lies a small collection of stylish beachfront bungalows, with larger residences available around the bay for families and couples alike. Non-motorised watersports such as snorkelling, kayaking and windsurfing are all complimentary, whilst the simplest of pleasures can be found on a nature walk under the rainforest canopy. For an additional supplement, guests can enjoy the use of Schiller water bikes, water skiing or tubing.
