Sugar Reef's French House is a fantastic 5-bedroom villa with its origins dating back to the 18th Century. Accessed by a private driveway, this villa can be found nestled on the hillside of a 65 acre coconut plantation estate that stretches all along Industry Bay, Crescent Beach.. With no direct neighbors and a great panoramic view out to the ocean and the Grenadine Islands of Balliceaux, Battowia and Mustique, guests can enjoy total seclusion and undisturbed privacy. The French House's eco-friendly design has made use of local materials, including lots of stone and mahogany. Its massive stone walls, large French doors and windows, and pitched roof were designed so as to ensure that the interiors are kept cool at all times, whilst also allowing cooling trade winds to enter from the east. The property features a saline plunge pool, a deep wraparound veranda facing the ocean with spectacular views, an honor bar, a fully equipped spacious kitchen and a great room with books and games, all for the exclusive use of French House guests.

The Sugar Reef restaurant continues to maintain its position as being our favourite restaurant on the island. The food is excellent, the staff super friendly and attentive and the Rum Punches easily the best.

We recently spend several nights at Sugar Reef and enjoyed the unique experience. The rooms in the French House are quite spacious with great views of the surrounding country side. The beach front restaurant had wonderful food, but a limited menu. You must take their quiz to see if this is the place for you as the amenities are limited. Perhaps the best asset here are the people. Dexter was wonderful and could not do enough for you, we loved him. Judit the manager was extremely helpful and easy to work with. Everyone we met was very helpful and friendly. Thank you all!

We stayed at Sugar reef for 1 night - it was not enough. Absolutely gorgeous settings- excellent customer service from check in to check out . House keepers Dexter and Rosie made you feel so special and welcome form start to end . Check in with Judit was very efficient and friendly. We stayed up at French House- so tranquil and relaxing - definitely will be booking again.

LIKE A DIAMOND Time is so short, you don’t want to waste it on a bad experience and you want things to be right the first time, especially in a holiday experience. They got it just right for us at Sugar Reef. I was staying on Bequia and had planned to stay at Tropical Hideaway. I am so glad I changed my plan, because we found a diamond in the French House at Sugar Reef. It’s not flawless, but it’s wonderful. It’s made that way by its staff, who were unobtrusive, but attentive. They understand hospitality. They met our needs and everybody in the team made sure the stay was comfortable. The food at French House was so elegant in its simplicity. Our needs were fully catered for and with unimpeachable service. The French House is not without any faults, but it was charming and to focus on some slight imperfections would distort how good this was. Besides, what sort of person wants to point out the flaws in a diamond. My biggest regret is that we didn’t share this special time with our best friends and family. And my second biggest regret is that once the secret is out everyone will want to stay here, making it harder to book in the future. I hope we can all find time to come back to the French House one day soon.

The Sugar Reef Hotel/Plantation has now become our favorite place to stay on Bequia. Our amazing experience began as soon as we made our booking via e-mail. We received a most personal and heart felt confirmation from the hotels manager Judit. She immediately wanted to know about our interests, any special plans or activities she could help us with, food preferences, transportation...you name it! Upon arrival via ferry from St. Vincent, Gideon Taxi (another must for island transportation ran by The Gideon Family that works with The Sugar Reef, plus you can run a tab with them during your stay...how great is that!!!). took us to the hotel. We were greeted by Judit (just as personable and friendly as her e-mails) where she took us up to our "room" in The French House that overlooks the Atlantic...Holy Cow! After showing us the villa and all of its amenities, she upgraded us to "The Master's Suite." Again, we were completely wowed and felt quite blessed in our selection of this gem of a hotel. Rosie, Rosie, Rosie...this lovely lady will be making you an amazing breakfast every day. Fresh mango, banana, passion fruit juice, frittatas, coconut bread, carrot muffins and the best coffee ever...you go girl!!

It was one of the best Caribbean vacations we had. We stayed in one of the three beach rooms with the sea just thirty steps away. There is no need for AC - gentle sea breezes, soothing sounds of the surf, most comfortable beds and luxurious linens guarantee a sound sleep. There are no other hotels on this beach, just a few private villas in the hills, boats cannot anchor in the bay because of the reef across it, so the property - a huge coconut plantation - is extremely private. Except for Wi-Fi, nothing distracts you from absorbing nature at its best - no TVs, music, organized beach activities, etc. Occasionally, a few people show up at the restaurant for lunch or dinner, but most of the time there is nobody around, except very friendly hotel staff and a few guests. The artistically decorated small restaurant is one of the best on the island, so there is no need to leave this Paradise and go elsewhere. This is easily done, however, by calling a taxi. The island is small, and the taxis are inexpensive. The hotel has only eight rooms - three on the beach and five in the villa up the hill. It’s not for everyone, but if you want to be away from it all, immerse yourself in nature, sharpen your senses, and yet be in comfort, enjoy delicious food, impeccable service and attention to every detail - this is your place to discover. We will return for sure. Irina and Ian

Pro's: Lovely views from the French house, nice experience sharing breakfast with others, nice large house, car to take you to main house, nice bed lined, historic house Con's: Lots of mosquitos everywhere - and the doors have slats so they can get in the rooms, noisy as the house all doors have slats you can hear anything anyone else is saying. Breakfast was a bit unsubstantial ( no eggs when we were there). Bathroom was really basic. The house certainly isn't luxurious. No air con and quite hot at night { there was a fan}
