Widely considered to be the top resort on the island, Jade Mountain Resort is luxury and romance at its finest. The property’s tagline, “A cornucopia of organic architecture in celebration of one of nature’s most alluring settings,” holds true, especially owing to the fact that the owner of the resort is renowned architect Nick Troubetzkoy. In the aim of creating something that blends in with St. Lucia’s natural beauty, Jade Mountain comprises rugged stone columns and individual bridges leading to infinity pools, all of which makes the view out of the private villas (or “sanctuaries,” as they call them) that much more mesmerizing. Sweeping views include both the island’s famous twin mountains, the Pitons, and the turquoise blue Caribbean Sea.

Sugar Beach

Set on the grounds of an 18th-century sugar plantation and with over 100 acres of rainforest comprising the property, Sugar Beach (a Viceroy Resort) is easily one of the top resorts on the island. The resort is made up of luxury villas and bungalows, with amenities including the Rainforest Spa, a full PADI dive facility, and a multitude of dining options from waterfront restaurants to bars and lounges. In terms of activities, guests can enjoy windsurfing, sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkelling, tennis, golf, beach volleyball, and more. There are even children’s programs for the young ones!
