Sugar Bay Barbados 

A laid-back all-inclusive within touching distance of the south coast’s best attractions

Set on a sugary white beach, this all-inclusive resort is great for families as well as couples, with plenty to explore on the doorstep.

This resort is tucked away in tropical gardens edging a protected lagoon and soft white sands; the beach is home to nesting leatherback turtles, and the tranquil bay’s calm waters are a great alternative to the crashing surf of other south-coast resorts. The elegant interiors are cool and airy with boho-chic furniture and a blend of contemporary and traditional touches – from sparkling chandeliers and lush plants to bright prints and a wall of colourful chattel house shutters. Lounge by the cosy pool, sip cocktails at the swim-up bar or enjoy a siesta in one of the hammocks strewn between palms at this laid-back, relaxing hideaway

Why we love Sugar Bay Barbados
