About the property

Sleeps 4, private roof top terrace, overlooks swimming pool

Detendre is a stunning 2BR, penthouse apartment which is privately owned and has been finished to an exceptionally high standard with beautiful furnishings in cool, relaxing colours with a good sized lounge, kitchen and utility room. Both the double and twin bedrooms are air-conditioned with ceiling fans and en suite bathrooms. Each opens up onto a large veranda overlooking the tropical gardens and the wonderful, free form swimming pool. This top floor apartment which has lift access, has the added bonus of a totally private rooftop sun deck with sun loungers where you can enjoy panoramic views over the West Coast and its sunsets. Included with the apartment is a flat screen TV with access to cable TV, telephone, DVD player, iPod docking station, WiFi, security safe, dishwasher, washer, dryer and maid service. At Sugar Hill you can enjoy all the facilities of the main clubhouse with its large infinity pool, bar, restaurant, fitness centre and tennis.

Barbados is an island paradise with its breathtaking scenic views and miles of white sandy beaches. Despite its small size, there are a wealth of interesting places to explore, from the historic Capital, Bridgetown with its abundance of shops and restaurants to the dramatic rugged East Coast where the Atlantic rollers break on the large rocks and reefs making it ideal for surfing. The highest point on the island can be found in the centre and is a great experience for lovers of natural beauty, who want to see an array of botanical wonders, gullies and cane fields.

Sugar Hill is located on the beautiful West Coast just a 5 minute drive from Holetown.

Holetown was the first settlement in Barbados and was originally named Jamestown after its benefactor Kings James I of England. There is a large stretch of beach in Holetown that welcomes visitors and provides various water based activities including boat trips and swimming with Turtles to name but a few. First and second streets are filled with a wide variety of restaurants and are very popular especially at the weekend.

There are also several beach front restaurants in Holetown including Zaccios, The Beach House,Tides and Surfside. Holetown has a large supermarket across the street from the beach and close to the Chattel Village shops where you can view local art, craft and fashion.

To the North of Holetown and the island’s northern-most town, also within close proximity of Sugar Hill is the first commercial centre of Barbados, Speightstown, once a major seaport and important fishing village. Smaller than Holetown but still with its own supermarket, shops, Post Office and art gallery as well as some beach front restaurants. Mullins Beach is located en route to Speightstown and is a picturesque bay with a nice, placid beach almost all year round. As residents of Sugar Hill you will receive a free beach chair and towel if you visit this beach. There is a restaurant and plenty of water activities to fill your day with including boat trips and snorkelling. On the opposite side of the road is Mullins Beach Indulgence spa offering a wide range of treatments, pool and Spa Café. We recommend you look at the magazine, ‘The Ins and Outs of Barbados’, copies of which are usually available at reception and around the Island, for details of restaurants, shops and property.

We've just returned from our second wonderful stay at Detendre. The apartment has stylish furnishings and was very clean and exceptionally well serviced by the lovely housekeeper who came twice a week to clean. The outdoor space was fab with a large balcony and rooftop terrace. Beach towels included.

We love Sugar Hill as it has all the benefits of a hotel but offers the flexibility of self catering in a secure and well maintained complex. The gym is well equipped and the two pools meant neither got really busy. Restaurant/bar at the pool called Carizma offers good food and was very handy.

There's a large supermarket in Holetown and fantastic restaurants in the surrounding area. Use of the Fairmont Beach Club was a real bonus too. Car essential.

Efficient and helpful booking advice from Cat, we can't wait to return.

Fabulous Stay

  • 5 of 5

What a great find. From the outset, dealing with the owners was faultless, all communication answered swiftly.

On arrival, the apartment was beautifully appointed, and my first impression it was cared for and had a lovely ambiance. Nice bed linen and towels and a fabulous young housekeeper who pampered to our needs. Nice furnishings and everything in the kitchen you could think of.The views over the pool were lovely from the terrace and the grounds immaculately tendered. The staff at the restaurant and reception area were equally welcoming and efficient.

In summary I would not hesitate to recommend this property/Sugar Hill and will myself be returning in the near future. Thanks Cat you were a gem to deal with.

Another very enjoyable stay in this lovely apartment on the Sugar Hill Resort. It is a spacious 2 bed/ 2 bedroom apartment on the 2 nd floor with views over the complex. Well equipped and nicely furnished, and Tonia the housekeeper is lovely and keeps the apartment spotlessly clean. Sugar Hill has great facilities, 2 pools, gym, tennis courts and a restaurant as well as lovely walks around the complex with views out to the sea. We hired a car to get around, down to the beach at the Fairmont Hotel, where the staff are so friendly and the beach and sea is beautiful. So many excellent restaurants to choose from along the coast, we will be back asap to try the ones we missed.

This is a beautiful property, well equipped and great facilities. We loved the very comfortable beds and the al fresco dining! Peaceful surroundings for a quiet relaxing break - but lots of lively entertainment within reach!

Beautiful Barbados, Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have been regular visitors to Barbados for more than 12 years and this year we stayed in Detendre Sugar Hill. Sugar hill is a prestigious resort of Villas and apartments on the west coast of the Island located on a hillside overlooking the sea. The resort is secure and private and has all facilities for sport and relaxation alike.

Detendre is a beautiful penthouse apartment overlooking garden areas and is spacious, clean and well maintained and is tastefully furnished and decorated. The apartment was fully equipped with everything we required and the description and photographs are entirely accurate. We found the lounge area and balcony to be larger than expected and we particularly enjoyed breakfast and afternoon tea on the balcony. We would recommend the apartment to couples and families alike.

Holetown, just a few minutes drive away has a well stocked Supermarket shops Restaurants and Cafes and there are plenty of other excellent Restaurants along the west coast in easy driving distance. We consider a car to be essential and we always pre-book through the internet with Stoutes Car Hire and collect on arrival at the airport. The staff are unbelievably friendly and efficient.

We look forward to returning to Barbados and Detendre in the future
