Sugar Ridge is Antigua's newest boutique resort. Nestled into a natural hillside bordered with sugar cane, not only does this chic resort offer breathtaking views, it provides an ambience of natural seclusion and tranquillity. The stunning palm-lined beach is only a ten-minute walk away, however a complimentary shuttle can also whisk you away to the neighbouring beaches and the inviting resort of Jolly Harbour, famed for its tranquil marina and tempting boat trips. All deluxe and premium rooms boast panoramic ocean views, large terraces, day beds and some even come with private plunge pools. Soft beige furnishings and dark woods create a stylish contemporary feel that oozes elegance. There are two exceptional restaurants to choose from, the most famous being Carmichael's, where you can dine on international and Caribbean fusion delights whilst enjoying a perfect sunset. Spend relaxing days in the calming swimming pool or invigorate your mind, body and soul at the spa.

Sovereign does not accept children at this hotel, however this is not an adult-only property.


Bars & Restaurants


Carmichael's is the resort's gourmet eatery, serving an exquisite Caribbean menu using the freshest fish and finest meats. Private dining gazebos are also on offer, for that special touch.


Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the SugarClub serves a diverse menu, with sushi, tapas and much more in unforgettable surroundings. Special themed nights provide an added touch of excitement, and there are plenty of drinks available to enjoy after the meal, too.

Beach & Pools

Swimming Pools

Sugar Beach is a pool-lovers paradise, complete with waterfalls, a lap pool and a separate fun pool for splashing around. Guests will find plenty of shaded areas, and lots of luxe loungers, too, where a drink from the nearby pool bar can be enjoyed in peace. 


Sugar Beach is perfectly located for those wanting to see some of Antigua's finest beaches. A free beach shuttle whisks you to nearby beaches in no time, and you'll love the pristine white sands backed by gently-waving palms.

Spa & Wellness


Guests can enjoy feeling pampered at the prestigious Aveda Concept spa. The spa menu is impressively varied, offering all manner of treatments ranging from hair to beauty and from massage to skincare.

Activities & Entertainment


Guests can hire one of the resort's colourful vintage bicycles for a whirl around the local coastline. There are many beaches within easy reach, plus the resort can prepare a picnic for you to enjoy in truly blissful surroundings.

Please note that an extra fee applies.

About the location
Jolly Harbour is a colourful little township on Antigua’s west coast. Popular for its lovely community village feel, the self-contained commercial centre is home to little shops, bars and restaurants that get a good nightlife scene going in the evenings. The pristine marina is on hand for sailing trips and fishing, with villas and a handful of luxury hotels lined up along the water. The town is a great place to tee off, with the Jolly Harbour Golf Club offering a challenging 18 holes set in a beautifully hilly landscape littered with lakes. The mile-long beach, Jolly Beach, is another big draw; a perfectly flat curve of powdery white sand smoothing into the pale turquoise waters of the Caribbean.
