From a West Indies perspective, the match would be remembered for Kemar Roach becoming only the sixth West Indian to reach 250 Test wickets and Kyle Mayers hitting his second century.
For Bangladesh, it ended a series of misery, one in which they were soundly beaten, their highest total being 245.
West Indies won the first Test in Antigua by seven wickets, and the series win means valuable points for the Caribbean side in the World Test Championship.
Attention now turns to the limited overs segment of the series, with the first of three T20s on Saturday in St. Lucia, followed by three ODIs in Guyana.
