The Wyndham Sugar Bay in St. Thomas went all inclusive July 1, and hotel officials said as such, it is the only true all inclusive on the island, which is in the chain of American Virgin Islands. Through Nov. 15, the resort is offering 45 percent off its all-inclusive packages, and from Dec. 23 through Jan. 2 is holding a holiday special of up to 30 percent off the package (regular rates at that time start at $491 per night.wyndham sugar bay.jpg)

Wyndham officials said the company decided to go the all-inclusive route when it saw a growing demand from budget-conscious travelers for such an entity on St. Thomas. The packages include unlimited food and beverages, entertainment, half-day access to the supervised Kids’ Club  and activities such as snorkeling, kayaking, sailing, miniature golf ,and family movie nights.

 The resort’s amenities include six restaurants and lounges, Journey’s Spa, three lagoon-style, interconnected pools, diving, a fitness center, and catamaran cruises. Wyndham Sugar Bay and its nearly 300 rooms are located on a hill on the island’s east end, with its own beach. It is a 15-minute ferry ride to St. John, a popular spot for tourists on St. Thomas, with an 18-hole golf course and duty-free shopping.
