They’re one of the best international tourism board partners I’ve ever worked with

Sugar Ridge 1 February 2010
Sugar Ridge, Antigua's newest boutique hotel is the perfect place to escape for a secluded retreat. Nestled in a natural hillside bordered with sugar cane, the hotel has beautiful panoramic views overlooking palm-lined beaches and the tempting turquoise Caribbean Sea.
Tucked away in the hills, the contemporary bedrooms are stylish with state of the art facilities. All 60 deluxe rooms have a private terrace with decadent sun loungers and many have their own plunge pool.
For an afternoon aperitif, a favourite place for guests is sitting next to the infinity pool by Carmichael's bar, where Caribbean cocktails are created to order and served throughout the day and into the evening.
There are two restaurants at the hotel as well as the trendy Sugar Club Bar. Carmichael's is an open-air fine dining restaurant, each table offering the most beautiful view and sensational sunsets. Head Chef, Matt Westwood, has created an enticing menu using fresh ingredients from the local market and his dishes combine authentic Caribbean flavours with those from Continents from all over the world.
For treatments and massages, there is a beautiful Aveda Concept spa, the first-ever on Antigua, as well as a state of the art gym and yoga/pilates studio. In addition to the three swimming pools at the hotel, there are a wide range of activities available and golf minutes away.
During the month of February, guests booking at Sugar Ridge Hotel will be offered a complimentary dinner for two at Carmichaels Restaurant, including a Caribbean cocktail in the bar beforehand. One week at Sugar Ridge costs from £932pp (www.ba.com) and includes bed and breakfast accommodation, flights and transfers. Book by 28th Feb 2010.
