Sugar Bay Barbados

At the Sugar Bay Barbados, there’s beach on your doorstep and Caribbean cuisine on tap.

The decor is distinctly Caribbean. With wooden island furniture, bold splashes of colour and colonial-style buildings, you’ll fall in love with the style and interior design.

The main pool has a shallow end for children and a swim-up bar with submerged stools for adults to enjoy a cocktail. The second pool is even more chilled out and has a hot tub.

The hotel’s four restaurants serve everything from British classics to Caribbean fare. After your evening meal, you can head to the beach bar for cocktails or the English-style pub for a beer.

With a stay at the Sugar Bay Barbados, you’ll be close to Bridgetown. As the island’s capital city, there’s plenty going on, from a packed commercial centre to a busy restaurant scene.

Things to do in Barbados

In Bridgetown, which you can reach in less than a 10-minute drive, head to the Garrison district to learn about the military history of Barbados.

There’s a lively atmosphere in Barbados day and night. By day, you’ll discover loads of shopping in a country rich in culture and cuisine, both local and international. In the afternoon, visit the Mount Gay Rum Distillery and enjoy a few samples before partying the night away down on the beach.

Resort Summary

Bridgetown is overflowing with opportunities to shop, drink in its culture or enjoy some local and international cuisine. In fact, visitors come from all over the island to stock up on the Barbadian produce. Fresh fruits and vegetables, meat and fish, are piled up on the rows of stalls, with people haggling all throughout the day.

Give that bartering game a try and see what hand crafted souvenirs you could walk away with. There are beautifully-carved wooden children’s toys, leather footwear, local bottles of spirits and hot sauce, plus woven wicker baskets in all shapes and sizes. Make sure you save enough room in your suitcase because there’s no way you’ll be going home empty handed after a trip around the Bridgetown markets.
