Sugar Beach, a Viceroy Resort resurfaced after a five-month renovation. The St. Lucia getaway has been refreshed and elevates the level of luxury for the site and location.
“The overall design is inspired by the breathtaking landscape. The interiors have been designed with a timeless and simplistic aesthetic, using a palette of light finishes and showcasing the outward views of the lush surroundings,” says Samantha Goodrich, Director of Design and Planning for Viceroy Hotel Group. “Our goal is for guests to experience increased luxury and seclusion while reconnecting with nature.”
Whitewashed beach facades have been updated with new shutters, ornate latticework porches and thatched roofs, while interiors are steeped in warm wood tones, soft white stone and layered upholstery . Blue accents also abound to enhance the sea and sky.
The Great Room, Sugar Beach’s signature dining venue, has been given a facelift in the form of new windows and sliding doors, while the new Palm Court alfresco lounge seats nine guests in a marble bar alongside contemporary seats. The Jalousie Grill has also expanded its sheltered outdoor seating area. Outdoor spaces have been stylishly revamped, including the main pool, which is lined with theater-style lounge chairs and chic cabanas.
In addition to a revamped lobby, the resort’s Rainforest Spa has expanded with a new contemporary treatment room in a couples tree house. Set on stilts, the space features large windows that frame forest views, while a freestanding indoor tub and outdoor shower promote relaxation. A new wellness and fitness center now anchors the property with a contemporary aesthetic of wood paneling and floor-to-ceiling windows that reinforce the lush surroundings.
Nine luxury accommodations – four one-bedroom beachfront bungalows and five luxury cottages – have also been added to the site. Contemporary bungalows overlook the beach from private outdoor terraces and chic indoor living rooms that serve as extensions of the bedroom. The cottages are nestled in the mountains and offer a cool, neutral palette of white and beige, plus private lounge terraces complete with plunge pools.
