The illustrious Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort has much to recommend it; from platinum sands to mountain views, indulgent spa treatments to exquisite dining experiences. And soon there will be another string to this luxury St Lucia hotel’s bow, with the opening of the new jetty and Pier Bar on Glenconner Beach. Here at the Inspiring Travel Company we know you’ll love the beach and its facilities when on your next St Lucia escape, and here are five reasons why.
1. The exclusive boat ride
Before you even arrive at Glenconner Beach you’re in for a treat, as the resort’s pontoon boat, Sugar Cube, will take you there in style. Providing a regular ferry service from the northern jetty of Sugar Beach itself, you’ll really get a sense of the secluded nature of these exclusive sands as you approach from the water.
2. The views
Nestled between St Lucia’s iconic twin peaks, the Pitons, majestic nature simply surrounds you here. Imagine getting up from your shaded sun lounger to see the rainforest-covered slopes, or viewing them as you take a dip in the dazzlingly blue waters of the Caribbean Sea.
3. The Pier Bar
From 19th December the Pier Bar here will open, serving light meals and refreshing drinks to beach-dwellers, who will have the option of ordering from the comfort of their loungers or dining at the bar itself; perfect!
4 The Instragrammable Jetty
The new jetty on Glenconner Beach is beautifully constructed and just the location for an Instagram photoshoot to die for. Of course, everyone loves those ‘end of a jetty’ shots, but with one or the other of the Pitons in the background? Photography gold.
5. The adult-only experience
Glenconner Beach is only accessible by boat and only open to guests aged 15 years and over, making it a distinctly grown-up enclave of this endlessly luxurious resort. Parents could pop over whilst the little ones are happy at kids’ club, or honeymooners might make this their beachside base all day long.
