After a $100 million renovation, it better be sweet!
The new Sugar Beach Resort in St Lucia doesn’t disappoint – in appearance and style anyway.
Situated on a gorgeous beach on this eastern Caribbean island, the resort has been transformed into “plantation-chic” style. Did I just make that up? I always gravitate to hotels that are not generic, and exhibit class and originality…. You can put Sugar Beach in that category.
Just look at these rooms – dark floors and white hot decor.
It shows restraint – is not gaudy Beverly Hills on the beach, and instead is as fresh as the ocean breeze.
If you can leave your welcoming rooms, the offers a pretty pool by which to relax…. and a sumptuous beach on which to drink a rum cocktail.
Sugar Beach is family-friendly also… with various activities from which to choose – kayaking… hiking… etc. It is near a rain forest too. In case this is important to you, it has been in the news lately because actor Matt Damon and his wife reportedly just renewed their vows here.
The one downfall is that the place is pricey – it is a Viceroy hotel, and that is a luxury brand, so be prepared to be quoted standard room rates of arppoximately $800. Remember, in the Caribbean, some hotels loqwer their prices during hurricane season, in case you are willing to make that gamble. This tastefully designed resort may convince a few travelers to do just that…..
