We had the pleasure of staying at Sugar Beach between the 25th February- 11th March 2019. The hotels location is amazing and the beach is picture perfect with crystal clear, warm waters. Watching the sunset each evening was a beautiful end to the days. Our room was a beach villa so it walked directly out and onto the beach which made our stay completely relaxing. On the beach there is plenty of shade and chairs to choose from, along with excellent waiter service so you don't even have to move. All of the hotel grounds and up keep is outstanding and staff work tirelessly to make your stay the best it could be. During the holiday we celebrated a birthday and the staff made extra effort to make this day special, including getting a cake. We both had a full body 80 minute massage and despite having regular massages this was one of the best massages we have ever had. We were lucky enough to be invited to view one of the new suites showroom which are due to be available later this year. The quality of the interiors, layout and modern convinces was outstanding. We would love to return and stay in one of these next time. The more we settled into the holiday the more we enjoyed it. The food choices and quality of the drinks available were outstanding and there was entertainment on each evening which added to the evening atmosphere. We would like to thank everyone for making our stay really wonderful and we look forward to returning and staying in one of the new suites hopefully very soon. Read less

We stayed at the Sugar Beach for only one night to celebrate a special occasion and it was perfect. The place is beautifully maintained, luxurious and spacious while managing an ambience that is relaxed and informal. Pre-dinner drinks were had at an open air lounge next to the beach, drinking ‘Budda Bar’ cocktails, watching the sunset and listening to live music, honestly it was sublime. Food was excellent (both dinner and breakfast) and the staff were attentive, warm and welcoming. We also took advantage of the gym there before we checked out (after so much food it was a must), the gym was well equipped both for cardio and weights and the staff informative and helpful – they couldn’t do enough to ensure we had everything we needed. We were only there for one night but will definitely stay there again in the future. Read less

Sugar Beach lies perfectly on clean white sand beaches where amenities and facilities blend seamlessly with clear blue/green ocean. From arrival, you will be made to feel as welcome as an old friend and your comfort is paramount. The beach front rooms offer fantastic views whilst being modern but not clinical, with ample space; typically well appointed. Restaurants are atmospheric, serving good food, with pleasant staff and offer seating on the beach and inside, both exciting the appetite. The bar is situated beach front, with 180 degree view overlooking pools and the ocean beyond and is, most importantly, well stocked. We particularly enjoyed the mixology experience at the Buddha Bar! A recent addition is the outdoor lounge, which is well and comfortably furnished and a is relaxing place to have that night cap. The grounds are beautiful and well tended and contain a premium Gym, Spa and tennis courts. We had no need of the Kids Club but there's something here for everyone. It was a short stay but the Sugar Beach has left a lasting impression. Read less

I was invited by my friend to spend three night at the hotel and it was the best vacation ever The view from our room was just amazing. We spent the first in the pool which was so relaxing.. there are two pools.. the quiet pool was very beautiful and we had so much fun.. The second day we did a lot of activities including the boathouse , which was very interesting. We had a match of tennis at the teen's club which was a good experience. We had a visit at the gove house which was very creative.. We had dinner at the three restaurants. The set up of the Buddha bar is beautiful and food is very tasty. The services were great and the people were very friendly , especially the hostesses Geetanjali and Roshni. They made us feel comfortable. I would like to thank Sachin and the F&B team for making my vacation successful. Read less
