Sugar Ridge Resort is tucked away on a hillside overlooking Valley Church and Jolly Harbour Marina. It is a popular get-away for yacht captains and crews (owing to an array of wonderful facilities) – with 60 rooms, all complete with fabulous views. The ground floor rooms have private plunge pools, and there are a number of private luxury villas with pools further up the hill.
Carmichael’s is their open-air fine dining restaurant and bar, serving Caribbean and international cuisine with seasonal variations – much of the produce is grown in their kitchen garden. Literally above all, Sugar Ridge has stunning views of the Caribbean Sea and neighbouring islands. When it’s full moon, the resort hosts a creative ‘jam’ that features ‘irie’ vibes and ital food – around their beautiful fireball, which was crafted by renowned Caribbean artist Aragorn.
Sugar Club features two pools, pool deck, restaurant (venue for breakfast, lunch and dinner; also hosts some of the best cultural events on island), piano bar, and approximately 6,000 sq. ft. of spa and an impressive and well-equipped gymnasium – memberships are available. The spa is the only Aveda Concept Spa in the Eastern Caribbean offering a variety of treatments and services (massages, facials, manicures and pedicures), as well as a retail store selling a range of Aveda products.
Sugar Ridge is also home to The Shed, an open-air hilltop yoga platform, which (in conjunction with Yoga Antigua) offers the widest range of yoga on island – arguably the most magical yoga setting in the Caribbean.
The resort is only a five-minute drive from several beaches, and the hotel offers a complimentary open-top Land Rover ride if you wish to visit. Sugar Ridge is definitely a must – after a long voyage or just to get away from English Harbour!
