SEE & DO
Sugar Beach is one of the most picturesque settings in St Lucia, set between the two Pitons within a UNESCO protected site. There are many things to see and do around the island and within easy reach of the resort.
You will be assigned a 24-hour butler on arrival and provided with a mini phone which allows access at any time of the day to your personal butler during your stay. They will be only too happy to organise anything for you, from calling you a resort shuttle (tuk-tuk) to transport you anywhere within the resort to making you a reservation at one of the restaurants to organising an excursion outside of the resort or perhaps chartering your very own yacht for the day.
