Sugar Ridge Hotel
Sugar Ridge Hotel has a prime location at the top of a hill overlooking the palm-fringed beach and the Jolly Harbour Marina. Its name derives from the fact that it shares a border with sugar cane crops.
The hotel was built in 2009 and features 60 luxury rooms spread over a hillside which has panoramic views of the whole area. The beach is just a few minutes walk and the hotel provides a shuttle service for guests in a hurry. Near the beach is the hustle and bustle of Jolly Harbour Marina where it is possible to arrange fishing expeditions, scuba diving and other water-based activities. There are also tennis courts and a golf course at the marina.
The hotel has two pools where guests can enjoy a quiet dip and lounge poolside on a chaise longue-style lounger. There is plenty of shade for reading a book or you can move into the sun and acquire a Caribbean tan. For those wishing to make a day of it at the pool, there are cabanas available.
Fitness and relaxation are taken seriously at the Sugar Ridge Hotel. You can tell this by the fact that the whole ground floor is taken up by the Spa and the Fitness Centre. The Aveda Concept Spa has treatment rooms, including one for couples, a hairdressing salon and an area for Pilates and yoga. In the fitness part of the complex there is a range of Cybex machines to allow guests to have a thorough workout.
With more and more brides turning to the Caribbean as the ideal spot to be wed, the resorts in the area have become expert at arranging weddings. At the Sugar Ridge Hotel there is a wedding advisor who will ensure that all the arrangements for that special day run smoothly. The hotel has a range of packages to meet the wedding party’s particular requirements and, together with this superb location, a truly memorable day is on the cards.
This restaurant and bar has a super location right at the top of the hill on which the hotel stands and offers fine dining with expansive views over the beach area and sea. It is also conveniently situated next to the swimming pool so that guests can combine a dip with a cocktail. The menu is varied but fresh fish from the local fishermen is a speciality.
Guests have a choice of dining inside or outdoors at this venue. The atmosphere is more casual than Carmichael’s and the menu features pasta, pizza, burgers and much more. The three main meals are served here.
