The hotel's luxurious 96 rooms, villas, cottages, and beachfront bungalows offer exceptional opulence and space. Each enjoys its own secluded garden or courtyard area, with private plunge pool and butler service. Decor is the height of contemporary Caribbean sophistication, with white-on-white interiors, four-poster beds and furnishings contrasting with striking dark wood flooring.
The Sugar Mill guest rooms have the advantage of being a short walk from public areas, however the Luxury Beachfront Bungalows are better located, just steps from the water's edge on the white sands of Sugar Beach. Most of the rooms are located way up in the hillside: expect amazing views and more stunning white interiors, but you'll be dependent on colourful Thai tuk-tuks or minibuses to shuttle you around. From Luxury Villas sleeping two adults, up to the two-bedroom Grand Luxury villas for extended families, these accommodations are simply breathtaking. For something extra special, consider the top-of-the-range Beachfront Collection, luxurious four-bedroom homes located behind the second beach with infinity pools and an outdoor kitchen and dining area.
All rooms feature a flat-screen TV, air conditioning, ceiling fans, an iPod docking station, a coffee maker and a fridge. All rooms come with complimentary Piton beer, soda and water.
Nestled between Lucia’s iconic Pitons on a former sugar plantation, Sugar Beach is perched on the west coast of the island in a cove with its own private beach, approximately 45 minutes away from the airport.

On Glenconner Beach there's Pier Bar, where light lunches and drinks are served with close-up views of the Pitons either side of you. During the day, Afternoon tea and evening drinks are served in the Palm Court Lounge. Romantic private dining experiences are also available with tiki torchlights on the beach or under the stars on your own private terrace.
