One you arrive to Sugar Beach, you won’t really want to leave—and that’s kind of the point. Flanked by St. Lucia’s twin volcanic Pitons, the property, tucked away on the island’s west coast, is set amongst 100 acres of rainforest (meaning hummingbirds and butterflies are par for the course). Admittedly, it’s a bit of a journey to get here, whether you fly in from the north or the south of the island, the road is steep and windy, but it’s well worth the hour-long-drive. The recently renovated colonial-style cottages are the move—they’re perched on the hillside and have their own claw-foot tubs, terraces as big as New York apartments, and are swathed in entirely in white from the slipcovered furniture to the four-poster beds. Each room has a private plunge pool,if you’re feel too lazy to wander down to the Caribbean, but should you make the effort, it’s one of those resorts where the main activity is ordering piña coladas to your beach chair while taking in the epic view. The spa is a necessary indulgence here, as the seven treatment rooms are tucked into private thatched-roof tree houses, and are the perfect spot for a bamboo massage or hot rock therapy.
