Sugar Ridge is elevated on a natural hillside ablaze with an abundance of colorful indigenous plants and sugar cane. Set against a spectacular backdrop of Antigua’s dramatic forested coastal highlands, the panoramic views of Antigua’s most beautiful beaches are on the doorstep and quickly accessible by the hotel’s complimentary shuttle. On the horizon lay Montserrat, Redonda, Nevis and St. Kitts. This area is also Antigua’s most fertile region with its black pineapple farms and mango trees close by.
Completed in December 2009, the $50 million resort is contemporary in design and includes 60 spacious guest rooms, housed in 15 two-story buildings tiered on the hillside. Each room features spectacular views of the surrounding landscape and Caribbean Sea..
