Sugar Cane Club Hotel & Spa 

A romantic retreat ideal for island explorations

Nestled in tropical flora not far from the sea, this adults-only hotel is a tranquil hillside hideaway.

This charming and intimate Mediterranean-style resort is tucked in peaceful hillside gardens and is perfect for the best of coast and countryside. Choose your favourite spot from the wooden swing chairs beneath the shade of a tree, or join the gardener-led Gully Walk to explore the grounds and surrounding forest before swigging from a fresh coconut. If you’re looking to venture beyond the grounds, there’s a free shuttle to the nearby beach and to Speightstown, which is a 10-minute drive away and offers a string of historic attractions to explore. The spa is also a standout, offering romantic couples’ massages, hydrotherapy treatments and other therapies in a lush garden setting.

Why we love Sugar Cane Club Hotel & Spa

  • It’s peaceful and laid-back, offering idyllic rural surroundings with the beach a short shuttle bus away.

  • It’s great for couples, with an adult-only policy (14+) and a variety of romantic add-ons available, from couples’ treatments to a private dining experience in the spa gazebo.

There are two open-air restaurants to choose from here, with daily changing menus and Caribbean-inspired cuisine. The hotel also hosts themed buffet dinners three nights a week – don’t miss the Caribbean BBQ on Thursdays and Bajan night on Saturdays, with live entertainment by local performers.

La Salsa Restaurant & Bar Offering panoramic views over the pool and surrounding greenery, this laid-back spot serves salads, sandwiches, pizzas and pasta dishes for lunch and Bajan-inspired cuisine for dinner; think stuffed flying fish, coconut shrimp curry and Caribbean lobster tail followed up by a pineapple tart.

Sandy's Chattel Bar Perched on the hillside and overlooking the forest below, this hidden gem is designed like a Caribbean rum shop with local specialities served in tranquil surrounds; try the Bajan fish cakes or sweet potato crisps, and follow it up with rum BBQ chicken or Jamaican jerk pork.

Sandy’s Chattel Bar stands out for its secluded location, tucked away on the hillside, and the Bajan-inspired food is as good as the views.
