Flanked by the Pitons (both a Unesco World Heritage site and St Lucia’s most famous landmark) and set amongst 100 acres of rain forest, Sugar Beach is a private paradise. While the romantic resort is a popular spot for honeymooners — with a world-class spa, dreamy dining options and awe-inspiring scenery — there are also excellent amenities and excursions available for a multigenerational family vacation. The splendid accommodations are scattered around the rolling, forested hills, so you still feel a sense of absolute privacy. Brightly colored tuk tuks are readily available to ferry you around. The main building, known as the plantation building, pays homage to the site’s former life as a sugar plantation; it has a grand, colonial style and overlooks a fragrant lily-filled pond, manicured gardens and the Caribbean Sea. Art aficionados will love the curious art displays.
