Huffington Post

"Green Luxury in the Grenadines" features Sugar Reef, where "The guests can relax on the sands under a thatch umbrella, and snack on homemade toasted coconut chips that are made with the property's own virgin coconut oil. (I couldn't get enough of these slightly salty slivers.)"


The "Best Islands to Live On" issue showcases Sugar Reef's view on its cover and on a two-page spread inside. Need we say more? (August 2013)

New Zealand Herald

"The best holiday I've ever had was ... a trip to the island of Bequia in the Caribbean. I hate touristy places and this was the Caribbean I was looking for... We stayed in the most spectacular house in a deserted part of the island." Miranda Kresnikoff, travel programme presenter (March 2013)

Live Share Travel

"The quaintest hotel we've stayed at during our #SVGLiming trip. Sugar Reef has just three rooms right on the beach, then five up on the hill at the French House, with a pool and incredible views of the ocean and Bequia countryside. Owner Heather says the interiors reflect a 1950-60s Caribbean style - like in the days when Bond author Ian Flemming lived in the Caribbean." (February 2013)

Places to Go for Luxury

"If you’re looking for something a little more boutique and rustic the the Sugar Reef is the perfect place for you. Nestled in a valley it has its own short stretch of pristine tropical beach so you’ll never be bothered while sunbathing... The beach front rooms right next to the beautiful lobby with chandeliers made of driftwood & shells, a wonderful open space to try their fabulous cuisine. For a more panoramic view there’s the old plantation house up on the hill, ...the views are nothing short of spectacular. They even offer a free ride up and down the hill between the two so you have no excuse not to enjoy the view and the beach." (February 2013)

Travel with a Mate

"...A cute boutique style resort nestled in a small bay on the east side of the island. With just a few houses dotted around the hills there’s a great sense of space and seclusion here and both the location and the decor of the hotel feel very connected with nature." (January 2013)

The Sunday Times

At Sugar Reef, "the rooms have four-poster beds and share a vast tree-canopy veranda with unsurpassable views across Mustique and Canouan." (December 2012)

Uncommon Caribbean

"The property consists of just eight guest rooms, each one named for Grenadines islands. Accommodations are housed at the property’s Beach Club and French House, both nestled on a 65-acre working plantation estate (coconuts, bananas, guavas, papaya, etc.) in the center of the amazing reef-protected bay." (November 2012)


"Those that can't live without 24/7 mobile data access, flat-screen TV and duty-free stores should look elsewhere. Instead, Sugar Reef promises to offer dances with "barefoot yachties," coral reef diving, fresh breezes and the sound of surf." (November 2012)
