Set amongst more than 100 acres of lush rainforest and nestled between St. Lucia’s iconic pitons sits Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort. Less than 20 miles from the international airport, this resort was named a World’s Best by Travel + Leisure, as well as a top 10 Caribbean resort by Conde Nast readers.
Situated on an 18th century sugar plantation, the resort offers access to Sugar Beach, with white sands as pure as its name. Relax by the pool or rejuvenate at the Rainforest Spa. The spa incorporates natural remedies like bananas to firm skin, coconuts to exfoliate, and cocoa butter to hydrate. Tree house treatment rooms are available for the ultimate St. Lucian spa experience. Kids ages 5 to 12 can take advantage of the Learning Center. Glass-bottom boats, volcano tours, shell collecting, and arts and crafts are just a few of the fun and educational opportunities.

Upgrade to the Luxury Villa and not only enjoy a private patio and plunge pool, but also experience personalized butler service. Have your bags unpacked, laundry done and reservations made.
