LOS ANGELES—Viceroy Hotel Group announced the completion of a $100 million dollar renovation of The Jalousie Plantation, and relaunches the property as Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort. Located on the island of St. Lucia, the resort has undergone a complete transformation, helmed by Viceroy Hotel Group, who has managed the property since 2008.
The resort features a new lobby and reception area to welcome guests staying in either new luxury villas, beachfront bungalows, sugar mill rooms, or luxury residences complete with full kitchens. The 9,427 square foot Rainforest Spa offers seven tree house treatment cabanas and an earthen steam room. For guests with children, the property has updated the Kids Club, featuring murals by British children’s book illustrator Lucy Loveheart.
Both of the restaurants and all four bars at Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort are new additions and include the Caribbean inspired The Great Room, the Bayside Bar and Restaurant, Cane Bar, Late Night Bar, and The Palm Court. Completing the transformation will be The Terrace, a breakfast restaurant with views across the lily pond and sugar mill ruins.
Viceroy Hotel Group’s CEO Bill Walshe and Sugar Beach Owner, Roger Myers agree that the decision to become a Viceroy property is a natural step towards bringing together the enhanced benefits of this expansive renovation project. Walshe remarks, “Transforming the Jalousie Plantation to Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort is the next step towards furthering Viceroy Hotel Group’s international portfolio, and the total renovation of this picturesque St. Lucia property will continue to draw the most discerning guests to relax and recharge in total luxury.”
