St. Lucia Honeymoon

We stayed at Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort which is so gorgeous and the location is unbeatable - it's tucked between two Pitons on a private beach. On the resort there's a spa, three restaurants, pool, beach, snorkeling (we did this everyday it was SO good, actually the best on the island), two boutiques, paddle boarding, kayaking, walking trails, and a gym (which we didn't use lol). You can stay in a beachside bungalow or a villa which are up in the hills. The hotel used to be a sugar cane plantation with so much history!
We landed around 1 but had an hour drive from the airport (on very curvy roads through the rainforest, I was a little car sick). Our cab driver Victor was awesome and had some Piton beers waiting in the car for us. He gave us a little tour of the island and we got to see his fishing village and even his home. Everyone is so friendly and are so proud to show off their island. Once we arrived at Sugar Beach we were greeted with their special rum punch (yum) and cool towels. 
We decided to stay in one of the luxury villas up the mountain so we could have some privacy + views of the ocean and Pitons. Our room was stunning and had it's own plunge pool. The villas come with butlers which was pretty clutch. They helped with reservations, planning your days, filling your fridge, calling your taxis, and overall just making sure you are having the best time.
An all white bedroom. So chic and dreamy!
We unpacked and sipped some champagne on our balcony before heading to Cane Bar for dinner (located on the resort). 
I loved the vibe of Cane Bar - it's a chic lounge with amazing sushi. Kyle and I still talk about the fire roll daily lol. We went back on Thursday because they have a DJ which was so fun. We witnessed a lot of bad dancing ;)
We got two couples massages while we were there. The spa is seriously AMAZING (I know I keep using that word but every thing was) and each room is in a secluded bungalow. This was Kyle's first massages EVER and it's safe to say he's hooked. I had to stop him from booking a third massage LOL.
After the massage you got to relax in this pool. #takemeback
The daily breakfast was yummy. Fresh juice, fruits, and a huge menu. Some days my breakfast looked like this....
...and others like this lol. It's all about balance right ;)
Kyle talked me into going on a hike one day. I love hikes and being active so I agreed. However, we didn't know how HARD it was going to be. It took us 2 hours to get up and 2 hours back down. At one point we were crawling completely vertical up the mountain on our hands and knees. It was pretty intense to say the least. I'm glad we did it though, it was a great accomplishment and the views were breathtaking.
The way down was the worst. It was slippery so you really had to concentrate. I definitely slipped more than a few times.
That's the Piton we hiked! We celebrated after with rosemary mojitos, piña coladas, and relaxing on the beach. These floaties were the best to chill on 
The piña coladas were our jam.
I loved coming back to our room to find fresh fruit, water, and snacks for us. Everything the staff does is so thoughtful.
Getting drinks in the Great Room before we headed off the resort for dinner at Boucan. It's a cacao infused menu which we were skeptical about but it was SO good. 
My dress is on sale for $40 (I bought for $130 ugh)!!! I got a size small and it fits perf. 
We did a sunset cruise which was one of our favorite activities. There was about 5 couples on it so it was very intimate. We cruised down the shore and looked at all the pretty colorful houses and resorts. We met a older couple from the Chicago area and knew mutual people. It's so crazy you can be thousands of miles from home and still have connections to people.
They provided rosé and snack boxes with fresh sushi and shrimp.
After the cruise we got ready and headed to the BBQ at the beach. You can't walk anywhere since the villas are up the mountain so these cute tuk tuk cars come and pick you up. The pink one was my favorite! The BBQ was too much fun. There was a live band and the biggest spread of food I've ever seen.
beach essentials: shorts | sandals | hat
We knew it would probably rain a little while we were there because end of June is the start of rainy season. It would be so sunny and then a downpour would come out of no where. It was gorgeous and would only last a few minutes.
One morning we went to the Sulphur Springs for a mud bath that supposedly makes you look 10 years younger. I wanted to scoop it into my water bottle and smuggle it home lol.
They told us the water would be around 100 degrees but it was definitely WAY hotter, probably about 110. Kyle couldn't even feel his feet after we got out lol. You did get used to it though.
We stopped at a waterfall afterward to rinse completely off. Our skin felt silky smooth afterward.
Morning beach strolls ^
Someone suggested taking a water taxi to a burger spot called Jungle Beach Grill down the island. We were a little skeptical but SO glad we went. Our driver gave us a little tour the towns and resorts, then showed us a bat cave. We we're going to snorkel but it started down pouring so we decided to just head to the burger shop. You guys, these were SO good, like in the top 3 burgers we've ever had. The mojitos were also to die for. My mouth is watering thinking about it! Definitely recommend going! Not sure if you saw on insta stories but on the boat ride home there was so much fog over the Pitons it seriously looked like we were in Jurassic Park. I also butchered the spelling of "Jurassic Park" on the video and Kyle was seriously concerned lolol. I think I wrote "Jurrasick". Spelling has never been my strong suite...at least I can laugh it off :)
Most people hung at the beach so you could usually get the pool all to yourself!

    1. From Cabo we flew Delta to Atlanta and had to stay over night because there were only early flights and we couldn't get out of Cabo early enough. On the way home we took American to Miami to Dallas which wasn't a long layover at all. We really didn't see many kids at our resort but I know there's a kids club. There's lots to do so I'm sure the kids will have fun. How could you not in paradise!? xx
