Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort
Val des Pitons, Saint Lucia
+758-456-8000, 800-235-4300

The Rainforest Spa at Sugar Beach, a Viceroy Resort, is nestled at the base of St. Lucia's Pitons (two volcanic spires that rise from the sea). Let your love erupt at this secluded, scenic escape where all accommodations feature spectacular views of the Pitons or the ocean. Designed with cooing couples in mind, the spa menu affords a wealth of treatments for two, including the Time For Two Cabana Massage where organic coconut oil helps induce relaxation while the sounds of the rainforest echo as you plunge into your own natural Watsu (water and shiatsu) pool. The Sulphur Seduction package offers three hours of pampering that begins with a tour of the local Sulphur Springs, high above the busy streets of Soufrière. Submerge yourself in the hot, black water of a nearby volcano and relax as a therapist saturates your body in mineral-rich mud to soothe your aching joints and muscles. After soaking up the sun to detoxify the skin, you and your beloved can wash away any remaining stress — and mud — with a warm shower in the Piton waterfalls. When you return from your exotic journey, a 20-minute massage awaits you.
