We had the most amazing time from the moment we arrived on the property until we drove off on our cab to the ferry station. We had a room in the Plantation House with a kitchen, a living area, a beautiful bathroom & big luxurious bed. We were right across the road from the most stunning beach with a view... More

We had the most amazing, stunning views of the ocean and islands from our balcony. Our bright and airy room set in a lush tropical setting filled with ocean breezes, beautiful sunsets, and moonlit nights set the backdrop for a truly unforgettable stay. Up at the crack of dawn with the call of roosters and tropical birds was a delight... More

We returned to Tortola and the Sugar Mill as a family after having stayed there a decade ago as a couple. It was just as wonderful as we remembered it! Welcoming, comfortable, quiet, in a lush, tropical setting - mango trees and coconut palms right on the premises! The property is set up as a collection of cottages of different... More

The rooms were lovely and the sandwiches and fruit platter left for us delicious and well received. Breakfast the next morning was superb. The service was very efficient and the... More

Room - We were on the top floor, in the middle building, up the hill from the pool and office. Plenty of space. Bathroom was very well done. Great view. Room was clean and well serviced. Food - This is the place for the best food on the island. Breakfast offered something for everyone. The dinner menu changed every night,... More

We just got home and already planning our return for next year... After checking out and booking we were hugely surprised by this charming resort. They have a fantastic 4 star restaurant, their food is fresh, delicious, and beautifully presented! Their staff was very helpful and friendly :) above and beyond the normal!!

Beautiful setting, friendly and helpful staff, delicious food, interesting history, comfortable room! Glad we sprung for two nights as a relaxed entry into a working vacation. I would love to try one of their packages at the start of their low season; they seem reasonably priced for what they include, and we liked that the weather was fine and the... More

Vanessa and her staff made the marriage ceremony a magical experience. The hotel staff made a real effort and the ceremony on the beach was superb. The hotel is the most romantic place to be when on holiday - we could not have asked for anymore!

My wife and I had never been to the British Virgin Islands, but we knew we wanted a romantic beach vacation where we wouldn't have to fight crowds of tourists, be near lots of screaming kids, or be confined to premises as in all-inclusive resorts. We found the Sugar Mill Hotel on the Web after a friend of my wife's... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A small hotel for a few special people. Set amid lush tropical surroundings, the Sugar Mill is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful British Virgin Islands. With a sand terrace and restaurant, our beach is protected by a natural reef, providing interesting viewing for snorkelers. Our fresh water swimming pool, nestled among swaying palm trees is a refreshing alternative. Candlelit dinners, with a menu that changes nightly, are served in the dining room which has been restored from the ruins of a 370 year old sugar mill. ... more   less
