The Sugar Beach Resort is centred on a gracious plantation-style Manor House, which you approach via an impressive walkway lined with palm trees and fountains, and a sweeping flight of steps. However, despite the grandeur of the entrance, the resort exudes a charmingly laid-back atmosphere, and with its world-class luxury facilities seamlessly combines the new with the old.
The plantation theme extends to the traditional Mauritian-style guest-rooms, which are located either in the Manor House or in villas hidden amongst the coconut groves — standard rooms, with balconies, are on the first floor, and superior rooms, with private terraces and more spacious bathrooms, are on the ground floor. The hotel is very family-focused, and the accommodation includes family units with connecting rooms. However, the stunning setting also lends itself to romantic weddings, and the resort offers a range of wedding packages.
The Sugar Beach has three superb restaurants, including Mon Plaisir, inspired by French pavement cafes, and the beach-front Tides Restaurant offering a world seafood menu — it has a spectacular centre counter at which you make up your own platter. Guests can also visit the sister resort La Pirogue to use the beautiful Paul & Virginie Restaurant, with its thatched pavilions overlooking the sea, against the dramatic backdrop of the Le Morne mountains.
