Description
Sugar Ridge

Sugar Ridge hotel is on the wonderful west coast of Antigua and is nestled into a natural hillside bordered with sugar cane.
Sugar Ridge is a new luxury boutique hotel and with its elevated position captures the most stunning and panoramic views of palm lined beaches, the turquoise Caribbean Sea, and the neighboring islands of Redonda, Nevis and St. Kitts which sit like gems upon the horizon. Best location in Antigua for a destination wedding.

Rooms- All of our bedrooms are grouped into sets of four, each with its own entrance and radio frequency activated door locks. The unique groupings and wonderful landscaping provide privacy, yet each has a spectacular view.The upper floor rooms have a large veranda, dining deck and day bed, whilst the lower floor rooms have similar facilities plus a private plunge pool.


The romantic muslin draped king sized four poster bed is the centerpiece to the room, and our interior designer has made clever use of natural tones, contemporary styles, colonial accents and rich, dark woods.
State of the art amenities and technology which includes IPod docker, electronic safe, LCD flat screen TV and complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access are available in each room.
Convenient access around the resort is provided by the hotel's concierge service with environmentally friendly electronic buggies.
 

Dining

Carmichael's is our more formal restaurant and sits atop the ridge, overlooking the whole resort and out to sea. To say that the sunsets from here are sensational is an understatement. There are views literally everywhere. We built a swimming pool next to this bar on purpose. It allows our guests to enjoy an authentic cocktail whilst lazily cooling in the pool and being amazed by the views, realizing just what the Caribbean really is all about. Adding to this experience is the delicious food served here.
Matt, our Head Chef for Carmichael's cleverly devises his menu and changes it with the seasons. He offers fusion dishes where the Caribbean meets and greets different Continents and enjoys creating cuisine when the local fishermen drop in with their fresh catch.


Sugar Club Restaurant Antigua is completely unique to Antigua offering true alternate dining choices. Sugar Club restaurant and bar are informal and have quite a buzzy, busy feel.
The bar and restaurant overlook the resort's two swimming pools and dining is both indoors and outdoors on the covered verandas.
The food on offer by Head Chef Marvis keeps on coming all day long - from breakfast through to dinner.
As well as some Antigua and Caribbean specialties Sugar Club restaurant offers burgers, pizzas, pastas, wraps, steaks, fish and Sushi.
Sugar Club restaurant has quite a good local following so you'll get to meet some of our great characters who come to enjoy the Tapas and Sushi on offer.  There's live entertainment at least three times a week and a DJ playing most Saturday nights.
 

The Spa
The Spa occupies the whole of the ground floor of Sugar Club - it's a serious and impressive amount of space.

Who can say how or when or why you will fall in love? One day you’re single and getting along fine in life, and then completely out of the blue … it happens, you meet that special someone and suddenly you can’t eat, can’t sleep and can’t concentrate. Your heart races; if it could speak, it would let you know that you’re in love.
Your heart has made your choice of a life’ partner and now there’s another decision to make – where to get married?
There’s really no better place to host a wedding than on the romantic island of Antigua, with 365 beaches, a fabulous climate, aquamarine sea and lots of happy smiling faces to help you celebrate.
Sugar Ridge is definitely ‘not into’ production line, multiple weddings but adopts a very intimate approach. Our dedicated wedding planner Jolie Watkins will guide you through all of the arrangements and leave you as stress-free as possible to enjoy every moment. The stunning location of the wedding gazebo is no less than jaw-dropping. It sits atop the whole ridge with views which will truly epitomize the Caribbean in your wedding photography and videos. Views which encompass the fabulous Sugar Ridge grounds with their abundance of colorful flowers and shrubs, out as far as the beaches, the Caribbean Sea and to the horizon where the sun dips into the sea for a kiss at sunset.
We understand that choosing the destination for your wedding or honeymoon requires careful consideration

The legal requirements for a wedding at Sugar Ridge. The ceremony will be conducted by a marriage officer and is legally recognized. Ceremonies can be performed after one full working day, between the hours of 9.00am and 5.00pm, Monday through Friday, but not on public holidays. A Catholic wedding must take place in a church. Marrying in a Commonwealth Country means however that the only record of the wedding outside of Antigua is the marriage certificate which is completed and given to the couple on their wedding day. If this is ever lost a copy would need to be obtained from the Registrar in Antigua.


The documents you will need:

  • You will need to bring the following original documents:-
  • Both of your birth certificates.
  • You’ll also need originals of any divorce/ decree absolute certificates if either of you have been married before.
  • A certified copy of any death certificates if either have been widowed.
  • If either of you have had a name change via deed poll or adoption then these documents are also needed and must be legally notarized
  • Passports are also needed for travel
  • All documents are required in English and if they need to be translated must be legally notarized as being a true translated copy.
  • For church weddings most ministers require proof of membership.
  • You are required to be resident in Antigua for at least one full working day prior to your marriage. Arranging the License


On the morning after your arrival at Sugar Ridge, our wedding coordinator will meet with you. During this meeting all details concerning your wedding i.e. choice of location, color of bouquet, type of cake, beauty salon appointments etc will be discussed. In many cases much of these arrangements may have been arranged prior to your arrival. Our wedding coordinator will then take you to the legal office in St John’s the Capitol of Antigua to arrange your license.


The Wedding – How much will it cost?
WEDDING FEATURES US$885.00
To ensure that your wedding ensembles remain a secret we’ll store them in a private and secure area and deliver them to your rooms at a chosen time. Remember also that the climate is around 28 degrees year round and it’s good to bear that in mind when choosing your wedding ensemble. Light tropical wear is great but if you prefer a more formal attire then maybe it’s better to choose a time later in the day for your marriage, just before sunset when there’s a light cooling breeze.

Trash the Dress
We bet it took ages to choose the right dress to impress your new husband? Your husband too for that matter must have taken quite a time in trying on different outfits. It seems like such a letdown after the wedding to see both your wedding ensembles hanging in the closet, just waiting to be re-packed, taken home and ‘moth-balled’. Why not be fashion models for a day and wear them all over again – the two of you reach for the stars and have some fun in the sun.
The object of this great day is to be completely relaxed, just the two of you with the photographer. Enjoy this fashion shoot with a twist and we’ll give you creative fashion shots with inspired images which are sassy and stylish. It will be a complete album on its own – your very own contemporary wedding photography.
