Sugar Beach, a Viceroy Resort

Overview - Sugar Beach, a Viceroy Resort. Copyright Viceroy Hotel Group.

With its dramatic mountains cloaked in lush virgin rainforest, white sandy beaches and crystalline seas, it's easy to see why St Lucia has been dubbed 'the Helen of the West Indies': ever since settlers first stepped ashore, this eastern Caribbean island has always been as captivating to visitors as the mythical Helen was to Troy.

Formerly known as The Jalousie Plantation, the resort was renamed Sugar Beach in November 2012.

From hiking through a flourishing jungle with coastal vistas, swimming under a towering waterfall, and discovering volcanic hot springs, to experiencing the famous Soufriere 'drive-in' volcano and diving face to face with the abundant marine life of the Anse des Pitons national marine reserve, the island is a playground for outdoor enthusiasts – and an almost heavenly setting for those with romance in their hearts and adventure in their souls.

See thumbnails of all photos for this point of interest.


Our luxury St Lucia resort is set within over 100 acres of lush rainforest on the site of an 18th Century sugar plantation, the lushly landscaped grounds sweep down to the stunning white sand Sugar Beach and the glimmering Caribbean Sea. The plantation's luxury villas and villa suites, and luxury Sugar Mill rooms boast elegant plantation styling, four-poster beds, luxurious Egyptian cotton linens, personalized butler service and every modern amenity for a pampering stay. Each of our St Lucia resort's villas and villa suites affords spectacular views of the Pitons or the Caribbean sea.

The indulgent, world-class Rainforest Spa, a full PADI dive facility, sumptuous waterfront dining, and chic bars and lounges ensure the quintessential St Lucia resort vacation experience, all close to the isle's top tourist attractions.

Offering space enough for families and honeymooners alike, The Jalousie Plantation Sugar Beach, St Lucia is the premier choice among Soufriere hotels for discerning travelers seeking seclusion and tranquility amid unsurpassed natural beauty.

Review:   Didn't stay here but ate lunch at their restaurant and toured the lobby, recreation area and drove through the resort. It's a wonderful, beautiful location but the in my opinion a cold, stuffy resort. I stay in 5 star resorts all the time and a lot have a warm and comfortable atmosphere compared to Sugar beach. You have to have a shuttle take you to the majority of rooms or hike extremely steep roads. The beach is not within easy walking distance from most rooms and all steep hills to walk down. Customer service was great and we received our food from the seaside restaurant much faster than most places we ate in st Lucia and the food was pretty good comparatively. They have three restaurants, two on the beach considered fine dining for dinner and one limited selection casual restaurant in the lobby. The pool area was bland and unimpressive. The rooms are independent cottages with your own pool so if you like to be somewhat secluded and private you would like this resort. I'm unsure what the rooms look like.

Review:   My husband and I stayed at Sugar Beach for a week in December 2016 - we simply can't wait to go back. The resort was beautiful, and the accommodations, dining, and staff were simply fantastic. The concierge staff was excellent in helping us set up transportation from the airport, as well as excursions to activities on the island, although to be honest if we'd never left the resort it still would have been an amazing vacation. While I was originally a bit nervous traveling to the island just as hurricane season was ending, I shouldn't have been - the weather was perfect (low 70s to mid 80s) every day, sunny, and with about a 10 min rain shower a day. I couldn't recommend Sugar Beach more highly - we're already planning a return trip!

Review:   The most luxurious place we stayed on the island. It's pricey but I'd say it's worth it. Service is excellent and so are the rooms. Each one comes with a jacuzzi or pool. You'll also get your own butler. The beach is amazing. Great snorkeling right by the shore, so there's no need to do the kayak excursion. Only complaint is that I'd expect a place like this to be adults only, or at least limited to children 12 years old and above. There were a couple of badly behaved kids at the resort while we were there and it ruins the vibe a little. More the parents' fault than anything and for this reason I prefer adults only hotels, especially at this price point.

Review:   This is not a comment directly about the hotel itself as we didn't stay there, but about the beach. The beach is beautiful and in a wonderful setting. The Sugar Beach Hotel has however commandeered 80% of the beach, leaving locals and independent travellers the option of forking out $50 US per head to use their sunbeds for the day, or huddle like sardines on the 20% of beach that hasn't been commandeered by the hotel. The hotel also controls access to the beach by road, so unless you pay a $50 access fee, the only way to get to the miserly bit of public beach is by an expensive water taxi.

Review:   Straight up the most beautiful resort I have ever been to. Impeccable service, gorgeous rooms and my son is still asking for the tuck tuck to take him to breakfast. If you are looking for a place to get away from it all then this is your place.
