Fodor's Expert Review Sugar Reef

Crescent Beach, Industry Bay, Bequia, VC0400, St. Vincent and the Grenadines Fodor's Choice

"Rustic splendor" is one way to describe Sugar Reef, an adults-only, "eco-chic" boutique inn near the northeastern tip of Bequia. Three small but uniquely decorated rooms are located in the Beach House, a guest wing adjacent to the restaurant and lounge that overlooks remote, reef-protected Crescent Beach. Beach House rooms all have thick stone walls and a private patio; they share a private seaside garden with hammocks and lounge chairs. The staff will arrange a private massage on the beach, if you wish. French House, an 18th-century great house high on a hill and a five-minute walk (or quick shuttle ride) from the Beach House, has five more guest rooms decorated with period antiques. French House guests have access to a great room with an honor bar, a shady courtyard with a plunge pool, and an enormous veranda with a panoramic view and where a Continental breakfast is served each morning—or they may cook for themselves in the old-fashioned Caribbean kitchen. Opt for the French House Master Suite, if available.
