Set on the ground floor of the Great House, The Terrace serves breakfast overlooking the lily pond and on Tuesdays and Sundays it is transformed into a pop-up restaurant serving French bistro dishes for dinner.

The Pier Bar lies on white sands and serves mouth-watering burgers, succulent coconut shrimp and tasty cocktails. At the end of the day head to Bayside Bar on the shore of Anse des Pitons, here you can sip cocktails while watching a stunning sunset. Sample some of the Caribbean’s finest rums at The Cane Bar which also offers an Asian-inspired menu with a tempting selection of sushi and satay dishes.

Relax on swinging day beds in elegant al fresco surroundings at The Palm Court Lounge and enjoy traditional English afternoon tea, plus cocktails, mixed drinks, wines and beers in the evening.

Spa & wellness

The heavenly Rainforest Spa offers a unique setting and a full range of nourishing treatments using ingredients sourced from the island’s volcanic springs and plantations such as banana, coconut, aloe vera and cocoa butter. Signature treatments include bamboo massages, hot rock therapies, facials, body wraps, salt scrubs, polishes, and holistic treatments. There are seven treehouse treatment rooms, a wetroom with manicure and pedicure facilities, a relaxation pavilion and an earthen Amerindian steam dome - known as a temascal - which reconnects the spa to the island’s earliest settlers. There is also a beauty suite which specialises in CACI treatments and Environ facials which are renowned for their superb bridal make-up and hair services.

For Children

What’s nearby? Close-by Soufriere is home to an adventure park that’s cross-hatched with zip lines* and horseback riding trails*. The area also lays claim to the world’s only drive-in volcano, which is surrounded by bubbling sulphur springs, and the Tet Paul Nature Trail – an easy 45-minute hike offering incredible views.

Tried and tested There are movie nights on the beach every Saturday evening, with beanbags set up on the sand and family-friendly films. The kids’ club facilities start from age four, and there’s evening entertainment for children during the main school holidays.

The sleeping arrangements Most of the accommodation at Sugar Beach is set in individual properties that are ideal for families to spread out in, and all rooms have a private plunge pool and butler service. Superior Luxury Cottages sleep two adults, plus two children under 11 in a separate living room with a sofa bed. Cots are also available. For larger groups and older children, we recommend the multiple-bedroom residences. The largest are the Four- Bedroom Luxury Residences, which sleep up to eight – nine with a cot – and have infinity-edge pools big enough for everyone.
