Just Back From... Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort, Saint Lucia November 8, 2017

Edward Light, Head of Commercial at Caribtours, gives us the lowdown on his recent family holiday to Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort, Saint Lucia.

“My family and I had a magical stay at Sugar Beach this summer – it was our first time staying there and we were so impressed by so many things. The resort’s wow factor is of course its amazing setting, tucked into a cove between the two famous Piton Mountains which rise up imposingly on either side. It’s amazingly set on over 100 acres of rainforest – there are no other resorts next door so, apart from a few visiting snorkelling boats, the entire bay is pretty much exclusively for resort guests.

Snorkelling is also a big attraction – the protected marine park on the right hand side of the bay ensures an incredible selection of coral and tropical fish to swim amongst. Our kids could easily have spent all day there floating about in lovely warm waters marvelling at the sea life. We also tried stand up paddleboarding and kayaking, and would have taken out a Hobie Cat had there been any wind! All this ensured a healthy appetite, and there was lovely mix of fresh smoothies and eggs cooked to order at breakfast, casual snacks and tapas on the beach at lunchtime and superb à la carte evening dinners – either right on the beach with tiki lights and candles, or up in the magnificent Great Room with views over the estate.

Whilst our children aren’t usually avid Kids Club goers, the team at the Sugar Club and the activities laid on were such fun that they were often gone for hours on end – football games and evening cinemas on the lawn, shell painting, coconut bowls, water balloon games… they absolutely loved it. Plus Alice (9) was treated by mum to a special children’s chocolate massage in the jungle spa which she still talks about now, along with the tuk tuk rides to get around the resort!

Most impressive to us though was the standard of accommodation and the butler service that came with it. We were up on the hillside in a Grand Luxury Villa with private plunge pool overlooking the jungle and Pitons - think solid wood floors, four-poster beds, clean white linens, all the latest technology, a daily allowance of complimentary beers and soft drinks in the minibar, an indoor and outdoor shower, and the most amazing service from Mackenzie, our butler – complete with a dedicated mobile phone to reach him at any time of day.

Sugar Beach is equally suitable for couples/honeymooners or families – there are enough quiet corners to escape to whilst we never felt self-conscious with the kids in tow. It is simply one of those premier resorts where everything is just slick, pristine, and of the highest quality.”
