I stayed in a Grand Luxury Villa (Room 501) which boasted incredible views of both Pitons, complete with its very own plunge pool, private patio, spacious interior with calming all-white decor, walk-in closet with mini-bar station including a Nespresso machine, 1.5 bathrooms, 2 walk-in showers, and victorian clawfoot bathtub.

The Beach & Pool
Take in the Caribbean sun at the spacious beach or resort pool. I personally loved spending the whole day at the beach under the organic beach huts taking in the incredible views and sitting in the water. Yes, you read that correctly. You can sit in the water on these floating rafts while soaking up the sun while cooling down in the water.
While you are at the beach or pool, you can order food & drinks directly to your chairs. The margarita pizza and chicken tacos were my go-to order every day. And of course, the classic rum punch cocktail is a must-order!
Besides the main beach, be sure to head over to the second smaller beach in front of the Beachfront Collection Villas that has an even more exclusive feel. There you will find more beachfront seating, a long pier with sunbeds and a bar, and a net bed over the water. This is a perfect place to take in the sunset.
Sugar Beach St Lucia Dining
Whether you’d like casual dining in the sand or a world-class dining experience, you can find a variety of cuisines and restaurants on the property.
In-Room Dining: First and foremost you can enjoy St. Lucia dining directly at your villa for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I personally loved ordering breakfast right to the room to overlook the incredible view in the comfort of our luxury bathrobes. My personal favorite was the salmon, spinach, and goat cheese omelet with a carafe of coffee. Breakfast can’t get better than this.
The Terrace Restaurant: Serving breakfast only, the Terrace restaurant is set on the ground floor of the Great house offering al fresco dining overlooking the lily pond, and resort grounds. You can opt for a buffet or order a la carte.
Bayside Restaurant: Located right on the beach, you can take in the views for lunch and dinner.

Activities at Sugar Beach St Lucia
You will not get bored at Sugar Beach with all of the variety of activities you can choose to do.
My two personal favorites were kayaking on the sea looking at both Pitons and the resort and snorkeling. There is a roped-off area in the sea that is a natural marine reserve. As soon as you look underwater, you will see plenty of fish and coral. It’s an incredible sight to see, and it’s a must-do while at Sugar Beach.
In addition to my two favorites of kayaking & snorkeling, here are other activities you can do at Sugar Beach: tennis, pool table, beach volleyball, jogging & walking, table tennis, scheduled fitness classes, SUP boards, windsurfing, sailing, Hobie cats, & pedalos.

Family Services at Sugar Beach
Sugar Beach is a family-friendly resort and offers complimentary children’s activities watched by childcare professionals at the Sugar Club for ages 4-12, Spice Club for teens and tweens, and babysitting services at an additional charge.
What to Pack for St Lucia
For sunny destinations, I like to pack my usual favorite swimsuits, my go-to raffia sunhat, and of course a large beach tote. If you are concerned about bugs, there is a medium-sized bug spray can in your room.
If you plan on going snorkeling, I would recommend bringing some water shoes. I found this pair on Amazon for a great price, and they don’t take too much room in my suitcase.
