Sugar Beach, a Viceroy Resort

Under the shadow of two breathtaking peaks of the Pitons, Sugar Beach is nestled on a hillside in the midst of 325 acres of lush forestry. With an extensive array of leisurely options for guests to enjoy, each visitor will find it easy to make the plantation their own personal paradise. Formerly known as the Jalousie Plantation, the property is now a Viceroy Resort.

The change in ownership may or may not have played a role in the advancement of the resort in recent years. In 2013, Conde Nast Traveller ranked this location with 77.27 out of 100 and placed it on the list of "World's Best Holiday Hotels."

This all-inclusive hotel is a good place for guests looking to relax after dinner. This beachfront destination features live shows 3 to 4 days per week, and there are some bars on-site to pick from as well.
