Sugar Ridge, Antigua
Nestled on a lush hillside bordered by sugar cane, Sugar Ridge offers stunning views overlooking Antigua’s western coastline and the crystal clear Caribbean Sea. The elevated position creates a fabulous setting and, in our opinion, offers something unique on Antigua. A complimentary shuttle takes only a couple of minutes to transport guests to any of the nearby beaches. All 60 stylish Deluxe Rooms (grouped in sets of four) boast panoramic views of picturesque villages, the coastal highlands or the turquoise Caribbean Sea. They all feature a large terrace with a day bed and a dining area, and the ground floor Deluxe Rooms have a private plunge pool. Soft beige furnishings and dark wood create a contemporary feel that oozes romance and elegance. Other room amenities include an iPod docking station, LCD flat-screen TV and complimentary WiFi internet access.
There are two restaurants and a trendy bar. We dined at Sugar Ridge’s signature restaurant, Carmichael’s, which sits in a glorious position on a hillside above the resort. Head chef Matt mixes international fusion cuisine with the fresh catch from local fishermen, and adds a hint of Caribbean tradition to create a fabulous blend of flavours. We suggest you sip a pre-dinner cocktail at Carmichael’s bar while watching the sun go down. Sugar Club is the vibrant central hub of the resort. The Sugar Club restaurant is open all day and offers more informal dining options from local dishes to more casual pizzas and burgers. There’s live music three times a week at the bar, which has already become a local favourite and is what we love about Sugar Ridge: hotel guests and locals share stories and have fun together. The resort’s state of the art gym with Cybex equipment and the Aveda Concept spa offering holistic treatments are on the ground floor near the two pretty swimming pools: an area that’s ideal for lazy days in the sun, or enjoying a cocktail in the shade of a cabana. The sophisticated Caribbean ambience, tranquillity and easy-going feeling is what gets our vote for this boutique property.
