Located on the island of St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Dreams Sugar Bay combines family fun with refined elegance – resulting in a truly unforgettable Caribbean getaway.
Surrounded by the island’s towering green mountains, white beaches and sparkling blue waters, the all inclusive family resort is unlike any other on St. Thomas and offers an incredibly unique family vacation experience. Formerly the Wyndham Sugar Bay Resort, Dreams has rebranded the property.
*******Editors Note: Dreams Sugar Bay is currently closed************
Is Dreams Sugar Bay closed? Once a bustling haven for travelers, like other resorts and hotels in the Virgin Islands, Sugar Bay was ravaged in the storms, and unable to generate revenue. Ultimately, this led to a lien being placed on the resort in May 2018. It was purchased by new owners in 2022. We will keep you posted when it re-opens.
