About Sugar Reef

Beachfront rooms

This really is a remarkable place! It is impossible to categorise Sugar Reef as it has so many aspects and features, but the one thing that is certain is that it is a wonderful place to stay – if what it has to offer appeals to you. Let us explain . . . . .

Sugar Reef is an extremely beautiful place which really does offer guests a natural and authentic Caribbean experience. The 65 acres of plantation, which sit next to 600 acres of tropical forest, sweep down to a lovely sandy beach which looks out towards the Grenadine Islands.

The Beach House, which is right on the golden sands, is the heart of Sugar Reef and home to the restaurant and open-air lounge. The menu here is focused on fresh, local ingredients and exotic, Caribbean flavours and dishes, so most of the ingredients are sourced locally. The food is simply marvellous and the rotis are sublime. The three Beachfront rooms are next to the Beach House and they share a private beachfront garden just a few steps from the turquoise sea.

Guests here while away their time reading books in a hammock, walking the acres of tropical grounds, and enjoying being so close to the beautiful natural world and wildlife that is Sugar Reef and indeed Bequia. Guests can sometimes forget that the little capital town of Port Elizabeth, with its shops and restaurants, is only 15 minutes’ drive away.

We have all been to Sugar Reef, stayed there and loved it. Talk to us in detail if you are tempted by this unique Caribbean jewel.

French House

The Sugar Reef Plantation is home to the splendid 18th century French House. Set just under a mile inland up a private road, the house commands panoramic views of Crescent Bay and the Grenadines from its many terraces and the main verandah.

The house has a central ‘great room’ with a main dining area which is shared between all guests, and five bedrooms of different shapes and sizes, all furnished with an eclectic mix of furniture antique and modern. Four-poster beds, luxurious cotton linen, and cooling winds flowing through the house. There is a tiny plunge pool at the house but guests will also have full use of the Beach house and its facilities.

The bedroom names tell a story – Battowia, Baliceaux, Secret Guestroom, Mistress Cottage and the Master Suite and each can be rented individually. All are self-contained – four have ensuite bathrooms.

The house is, of course, a wonderful place for a group of friends or a family to rent in its entirety, and this would provide a memorable place to stay together in 18th century splendour. There is a huge kitchen for self-catering and the Beach House restaurant is just down the hill. We suggest that renting a jeep to go with the French House would be a good idea.
