Boutique resort with the Caribbean's only Aveda spa
Property does not have direct beach access
Perched on a hillside in southwest Antigua, Sugar Ridge offers the luxuries of a big resort but with the intimate atmosphere of a boutique hotel. Rooms boast twin beds or king-sized canopy beds draped in muslin, plus free Wi-Fi access and flat-screen TVs. On the upper floors, rooms open up onto verandas with views of the island and sea, while the lower floor accommodations have private plunge pools. To help you relax, you can get a mani-pedi or a massage at the on-site Aveda Concept Spa, the only one available in the Caribbean. As far as dining goes, the resort offers two options: the upscale Carmichael's restaurant and the Sugar Club Restaurant, where guests can enjoy themed meals and live music. If you opt for the property's all-inclusive package, meals and drinks at both eateries are covered. The only complaints from guests? The slow service and lack of direct beach access. However, the hotel offers a complimentary shuttle to nearby beaches.

Critic Reviews



Sugar Ridge is much about the view. One of those rare Caribbean hotels that doesn't sit at the edge of the sand, this boutique luxury resort, ranging up a hillside on Antigua's west coast, not only overlooks palm-lined beaches and the marina at Jolly Harbour but also looks out across the greens and blues of the Caribbean toward St. Kitts, Nevis, and Redonda.


One of the newer properties on the island, this chic 60-room boutique resort was built in 2009 and feels modern and fresh. What makes the property unique are the sweeping views – it's situated high on the side of a hill looking out over the west coast of the island.
