Sugar Bay in Barbados is a four-star, all-inclusive resort that opened in November 2015, catering to couples, families and groups. The resort has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, with attentive staff always on hand to assist.
There are plenty of activities and facilities, all in a stylish, boho-chic setting on a tranquil bay just outside Bridgetown. Located within the city's historic UNESCO World Heritage Site beside 150 metres of white, sandy beach, Sugar Bay is connected to more of the south coast's restaurants, shops and beautiful beaches by a boardwalk.
There are 138 chic rooms and suites, each with a private balcony to admire views of the ocean, pools or gardens. Modern amenities include a mini fridge, flat screen TV, i-Pod dock, an in-room safe and toiletries from The White Company. Many of the rooms and suites are perfect for families, the largest of which sleep up to 6 people - one and two bedroom Suites have a separate living room with sofa bed.
Sugar Bay offers a range of dining options with five restaurants and bars. Located beside the beach, Reef serves an international buffet at breakfast, lunch and dinner, while Colin’s Beach bar & Grill provides casual, al fresco dining for lunch or dinner in a setting that resembles a local rum shop. UMI is an elegant Japanese restaurant offering Asian fusion specialities in an adults-only setting on the hotel's first floor overlooking the swimming pool. Families are welcome to dine downstairs in the large lounge area. Sizzle Steakhouse serves the best cuts of beef, combining traditional accompaniments with the flavours of the Caribbean, while the Lazy Mongoose resembles a cosy English pub and serves local brews and late night snacks. All venues are included in Sugar Bay's all-inclusive package, although there might be supplements for some items and guests can only dine at Colin’s Beach Bar & Grill, UMI and Sizzle Steak twice per week. The Coffee Bean is a cafe that is not part of the all-inclusive package, serving a variety of hot and cold beverages as well as snacks and light lunches.
Alongside varied dining options at Sugar Bay, complimentary activities include beach volleyball, a games room and a host of non motorized watersports. Other attractions in the area are wind surfing, banana boat trips, scuba diving and swimming with turtles to name but a few. There are two spas, Karma and Chateau de Beaute Spa, both offering a range of treatments while a beauty and hair salon is found in the Chattel Village.
Kids Fun is part of the all-inclusive package offering crèche facilities for children aged from 4 months – 2 years, a Kids Club for ages 3 – 12 years and the Teen Club House for older children.
