Family Holiday Pack List to Saint Lucia July 9, 2018

The hot weather here in the UK has got us thinking about our summer holidays, particularly our favourite resorts and what to pack! We've teamed up with Sunuva to give you some expert advice on what stylish kids swimwear to bring in your suitcase. Here's a curated ‘Pack List’ for one of our favourite family resorts - Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort in Saint Lucia.

When it comes to luxury family retreats to the Caribbean, we recommend Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort in Saint Lucia, as it has the perfect balance of grown-up style and fun-filled child-friendly activities. With tropical rainforest and crystal clear water, there’s no shortage of adventure here, and with two powdery, white sandy beaches there’s more than enough space for you to relax on a comfortable sun lounger, whilst the children play within gazing distance.

For beach side fun, Sunuva recommends… inspired by Mexican travel - their light, flutter dress with pretty embroidered flowers and a matching bag to finish off the look. For the ultimate comfort, they recommend the tailored navy swim shorts and soft towelling striped polo for boys!


Sugar Beach is located in an enviable spot between the majestic Piton Mountains, and has the most awe-inspiring views that will take your breath away. Savour the mountain views whilst having breakfast overlooking the lily pond at the Terrace Restaurant. Or have a relaxed lunch with a tropical cocktail at Bayside, the beachfront restaurant the children will love.

For al fresco dining, Sunuva recommends… their soft mint aqua sweat set with front zip details; it’s perfect for throwing on over swimwear or to wear during sightseeing tours and hikes! For boys, they recommend the soft grey marl set for the casual aprés-beach look.


Various hikes and sightseeing tours are available in and around Sugar Beach. Take a rainforest tour along the Amerindian trail that houses the luxury spa, or get an adrenaline rush from the nearby zip-lining adventure. You can even take a dip in the local mineral mud bath, which is naturally heated. The bath will leave your skin feeling beautifully soft and smooth.

For adventure seekers, Sunuva recommends…their classic navy and white scallop swimsuit, perfect for sailing adventures. Throw the soft white towelling dress over the swimsuit to keep warm and dry off quicker. For boys, they recommend the boat stripe swim short coordinated with the boat rash vest and the striped towelling hoody over the top!


Sugar Beach offers complimentary non-motorised watersports, so the family can try sailing, pedalos and snorkelling. If you have any budding sailors in the family, you’ll love the junior sailing programme, where children aged 10yrs and over can learn the basics of sailing and boat handling.

For water-based antics, Sunuva recommends… the white rash vest with a vibrant floral print, paired up with the Mexicana bikini and the shorts. For boys, they recommend the playful printed ‘Run Wild’ set, with electric neons and soft greys.


Our last style tip is pair up your Sunuva with a great amount of sunscreen, don’t forget, sun safety never goes out of fashion!

If you want a stylish, relaxing holiday that the whole family will enjoy, you don’t need to look much further. When planning your next luxury family break, leave it to us at Caribtours to organise a truly unforgettable experience for everyone.
