Searching for luxury apartments in St James? Lumiere at Sugar Hill Resort is the perfect penthouse. Overlooking 52 acres of immaculate, landscaped gardens on the exclusive West Coast, this boutique style penthouse apartment has undergone a complete refurbishment by renowned, award winning interior designer Jenny Blanc (who originally created the magnificent Oxfordshire hotel Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons with chef Raymond Blanc). Relax amidst the beautiful furnishings and accessories sourced from Archers Hall and Timothy Oulton from Barbados and lifestyle boutique Maisie K based in Sevenoaks UK.
After breakfast in bed looking over the swaying palms from the open terrace doors, enjoy a dip in one of Sugar Hill’s two beautiful pools or wallow in Lumiere’s rooftop hot tub before reclining on a marvellously comfortable Oscar de la Renta double chaise looking out over the tropical gardens to the Caribbean Sea beyond.
It’s a peaceful setting with no noise from the jet skis and coast road that can blight some coastal properties. Lumiere guests enjoy complimentary membership of the 5* Fairmont Royal Pavilion Hotel Beach Club just a 3 minute drive away – the pristine beach is perfect for that early morning stroll and a dip.
If you can tear yourself away from the idyllic surroundings of Sugar Hill, a five minute 3km drive south will bring you to Holetown. Here you’ll find every amenity: shops, supermarket, duty free outlets, trendy cafes and bars, world class dining, banks, a cinema and a 24/7 medical center. 7km drive north you will find Speightstown, Barbados’s bustling second city. There is so much to see and do, there really is something for everyone.
If lazing in the jacuzzi sounds too taxing, why not make yourself comfortable on the colonial mahogany daybed on the lower terrace and start reading your paperback (or something from Lumiere’s bookshelves) before a two minute stroll through the palms and vibrant blossoms to the infinity pool. Dive into the bath warm water and watch the sunset from the infinity edge before a rum sour in the Clubhouse and dinner at a world class restaurant of your choice – there are many! Return to your luxury penthouse apartment and perhaps enjoy a movie, choosing from a library of DVDs – or maybe a candlelit game of chess under the stars on the penthouse rooftop terrace.
The Sugar Hill Resort is very well maintained with gorgeous gardens and two huge swimming pools. You can stay active on the floodlit tennis courts or in the gym. Or if you’d like a more sedentary pastime, you can try our superb Spa at Home Service or revitalise yourself at a yoga class available at Sugar Hill or the nearby Yoga Studio.
Our housekeeper, will visit during your stay to change beds and fly around with brooms and dusters and our House Manager, Karen, will be on hand to answer any queries or to help in an emergency. They will ensure you can relax and enjoy being pampered in comfort and style in one of the West Coast’s most sought after estates.
Our guests have likened their visits to Lumiere to staying in a 5* luxury boutique hotel, but with the flexibility and freedom to do what you want when you want. We set out to create a luxury environment and, with the expertise of Jenny Blanc and her team, we hope our guests enjoy making holiday memories in a space as gorgeous and comfortable as the homes they have left behind.

Back again for 11 nights to beautiful Lumiere and as before found it in excellent order. We appreciate the quality linens, and general overall comfort of the Apt. Carolyn the house keeper cares for it beautifully and is a sweet person.
The Beach Club at the Royal Pavilion was reasonably quiet and we had no problems securing sun loungers .
All in all another wonderful visit to our favourite Island in the sun.
We have enjoyed our stay here at Lumiere very much and hope to come back next year.
Carolyn has been terrific and does a wonderful job.
A wonderful 10 days in Lumiere .The apt met all our needs . It’s a bright, airy and elegant .Having Beach Club Membership of the Royal Pavilion was essential for us Happily Lumiere had this facility .
We would certainly recommend this apt but look after it for our return please .
Excellent accomodation exactly as described in all the other reviews. Booking was very easy with the owner and the property is well managed by the very helpful Karen. I would highly recommend both this apartment and Paradise Rentals and I will be certain to use them again on future visits.
We have just returned from a holiday at Lumiere. The accommodation was superb in beautiful surroundings, very clean and bright and comfortable. The Sugar Hill complex is lovely and very convenient for getting around the island. . My only comment is that I could not reach the safe as it was so high in the wardrobe so had to rely on my husband to open it. Karen was extremely helpful and Carolyn maintained the apartment very well. I would thoroughly recommend Lumiere to anybody.
We were looking for somewhere for a short stay, near to Holetown and the beaches, and at the right price. We found the apartment was a perfect choice. It was in beautiful surroundings, very clean and well equipped, and the outside furniture and roof terrace added so much more. The arrangements through Karen were perfect and everything went according to plan.
On the downside , if there were more than 2 people it may be a little tight because of the single bathroom but this was no problem to us. The bed could have been a little larger.
We would definitely take the apartment again.
We have just come back from a superb 2 week stay. The apartment is perfect. Roomy, nice design, great space both indoor and out and a fantastic rooftop suntrap with hot tub!!! All very well organised by Karen and well maintained by Caroline the housekeeper. Sugar Hill is without doubt one of the best locations on the Island and this apartment upholds all of the quality that the estate exudes.
One minor point – do remember it is a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom – not always 100% convenient when you are getting ready to go out!
However, nothing can detract from the overall quality of the Barbados and Lumiere experience. Highly recommended
We have just returned from ten fantastic days in St James, Barbados. From the moment we arrived it was luxurious. Karen had arranged a fast track service through the airport which is well worth the extra money, as there are always long queues at customs in Barbados as it seems that several Uk planes always arrive at the same time. We were then guided through to baggage collection to our apiary transfer. On arrival at the stunning apartment at Sugar Hill the fridge was stocked for us and our hire car was delivered to us too. We always think this is easier than picking up the car ourselves when we arrive off the long plane journey when you just want to get to your accommodation asap. Lumiere is beautifully interior designed and the fabrics and little extra touches throughout were gorgeous. In addition the technology provided is great. There was a smart TV, over a hundred DVDs and Netflix too! The beds are extremely comfortable and the daybeds on the balcony and roof terrace were super, as was the jacuzzi. We ate at the onsite restaurant one lunchtime and one evening and the food was lovely, however the restaurant was a little quiet as it is not a busy time of year. We had the outdoor pools to ourselves on several occasions but mainly preferred to visit the stunning beaches on the west coast. Our favourite was Alleynes Bay and lunch at the Lone Star. We also visited Crane Beach which is great fun and you can hire boogie boards and rough surf. Karen was very helpful and when we had any issue or question she was on to it straight away to help us and sort it out. This made our holiday even more relaxing, confident in the knowledge that Karen was on hand to meet our every need. WE would definitely book through Paradise Holiday Rentals again in the future, for a seamless trip, to our favourite holiday destination!!
We had a fantastic holiday at this gorgeous villa – our home away from home. Karen was fantastic organizing all of the details including airport transfer and car rental. The place was clean, spacious and beautfiully decorated!. The location was ideal on the West Coast with a beautiful beach and amazing restaurants. We highly recommend staying here!
Perfect peace in this stylish penthouse apartment, luxury fabrics and exceptionally comfy beds,there was everything we needed for a great holiday. We spent hours on the cool verandah and sunbathed on the sun deck with cooling tub and luxury sun beds. The nearby Fairmont was brilliant for cocktails and food, we swam every morning in the sea and walked on the beach. If you are looking for a Beautiful place for up to 4 people then look no further.- thanks Karen for all your help.
Thank you Karen for such an absolutely perfect stay in your gorgeous Bajan rental, Lumiere. Myself, my husband and 2 daughters were so impressed by the sheer beauty of our surroundings, the Sugar Hill property and the unit itself. Everything was as close to perfect as possible and we would return to this beautiful paradise rental in a heartbeat. Thank you for everything you did to make our stay so very enjoyable and relaxing. Also, I want to mention and compliment the housekeeper who filled in for your regular lady; she was so kind, attentive and such a hard worker, we really appreciated her efforts and attention to detail. Thank you kindly and we hope to do business with you again in 2016. All our best, Lisa, Adham, Leila & Hannah
May I take the opportunity to thank you for organising our stay at Lumiere; We had a fabulous week! We loved the apartment and felt we had everything there we needed for our relaxing break. We haven’t slept that well for seven days in a long time! The Fairmont Beach Club was a very welcome bonus and we spent most days down on their beach. I would like to compliment Carolyn, the housekeeper, on her hard work.
Thank you again and we look forward to renting another Paradise Rentals property in the future.
We had a truly lovely week at Lumiere at Sugar Hill. As you indicated beforehand the apartment is lovely (feels like a home, not just a rental). A week really isn’t long enough (but for sure it is way better than nothing, which is the alternative option!!).
We were very sad to leave. Arrangements were all super from your end, we were looked after at every street turn and were able to completely switch off, relax and enjoy the whole break. Thank you so much for everything
It has all been said before Lumiere is a wonderful apartment on a very quiet and well equipped complex away from the hussle and bussle of Holetown but within easy reach of beach and shops but you must have a car. Can’t recommend the Hot Tub on the roof terrace enough fabulously relaxing. Karen was very helpful and always at the end of a phone line and thank you to Caroline who keeps the apartment spic & span. We will return when we next come to Barbados as we had such a wonderful time.
Absolutely stunning apartment in a beautiful development on West Coast close to Holetown. Furnishings are beautiful and facilities are first class. 5 star hotel quality but with virtual privacy and freedom to dine in or out. Would definitely recommend.
Everything about Lumiere is first class. Karen is incredibly helpful and organised our pick up at the airport, hire car and some shopping. The apartment has the feel of a 5 star hotel suite and was the ideal size for our family of four. The quiet pools and handy beach club with lovely staff made sure the kids had plenty to do, but we felt so relaxed every day. The gym and tennis courts are a great bonus, as is the fabulous hot tub on the roof. It was one of our favourite holidays and we’re hoping to go back next year!
Recently stayed at Lumiere and thought it was absolutely fabulous. The Sugar Hill complex met our high expectations and we enjoyed and used all the facilities available. Will definitely be going back!
I just wanted to send you a note to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at beautiful Lumiere! The house was everything I had hoped, and the roof top hot tub and sunbeds were FANTASTIC!!! We had everything we needed in the kitchen, and the towels were so big and thick and luxurious. We loved the island and hope that it won’t be too long before we can visit again! A Big Thank you! Warmest regards, Christina
We’ve just returned after a terrific trip to Barbados in May 2014. Quite frankly I’m really picky and hard to please but I am delighted to say that Paradise Rentals and the Lumiere apartment were both terrific. It’s a great apartment that’s well equipped and beautifully furnished in a really quiet, convenient location. It also didn’t seem have any mosquitoes. I’m normally a magnet for them but due to the almost constant sea breezes the little creatures are almost entirely absent which was a godsend. If I go back to Barbados I’d definitely choose Paradise Rentals again. The service was seamless and friendly. If you’re choosing Lumiere I hope you have as great a trip as we did.
We had a two week stay in Lumiere, a penthouse apartment with a private roof terrace. It was not our first choice and we were a little apprehensive but as Karen promised it was of an extremely high standard – lovely comfy bed and pillows, it seems only a little thing but makes all the difference. The grounds are well maintained and the pools never busy. Spago the on site restaurant is perfectly adequate for a drink and meal on evenings you don’t want to drive. We had a hire car for the two weeks and certainly wouldn’t stay there without one. The facility of being able to use the Fairmont Beach Club was great, never too busy and the staff were always friendly and helpful. Overall it was a super holiday and we very much hope to return next year.
