Plan a Vacation in Paradise That Doesn’t Break The Bank at Spectacular, Seaside

Boutique Resort With Top-Notch Service, Amenities and Gorgeous Natural Setting

Enjoy ultimate luxury on the Caribbean’s most beautiful island – all at the year’s lowest rates – when you book your summer escape to beachfront boutique Calabash Cove Resort & Spa.

Tucked away on a gently sloping, tropical beachfront on the northwest coast of the island, this spectacular resort features 26 suites, all with Jacuzzis and many with private pools, as well as a full-service spa and fitness center, infinity-edge designer swimming pool, restaurant, cocktail bar, library, and game room. For dates booked from through December 23, 2011, Calabash Cove is offering reduced seasonal rates starting at just $370/night, depending on accommodations and meal plan selected. Choose from the European Plan (EP), featuring a daily island breakfast buffet, or the Luxury Gourmet Plan (LGP), an all-inclusive option that includes all meals and beverages throughout your stay. All of the rooms feature unparalleled views of the sea, the capital Castries to the south, or nearby Martinique to the north from a private balcony. Choose from the following accommodations when planning your vacation:
  • Water’s Edge Cottages - Each of the nine handcrafted teak and mahogany Water’s Edge Cottages on the beach is replete with private plunge pool for late night dips, outdoor rain shower for tropical sensations, private Jacuzzi for sipping Champagne the right way, and a lazy patio hammock surrounded by tropical flora oft visited by the island’s hummingbirds. These luxurious hideaways offer unparalleled views of the bay with the majestic Pitons in the distance and exquisite Caribbean sunsets. When night and stars steal across the sky, curl up in the spacious living area as sea breezes drift gently through. Each cottage offers a TV/DVD/hi-fi system, broadband internet connection, refrigerator, coffee/tea maker, and of course, room service to deliver for-your-eyes-only dining pleasures and drinks. Summer rates are $535/night for the European Plan (EP), which includes island breakfast buffet daily, and $735/night for the All Inclusive (AI) plan, which includes all meals and beverages during your stay (based on double occupancy).
  • Swim-Up Junior Suites – These unique, 620-sq. ft. junior suites offer luxury and comfort, including private Jacuzzis – and are located just steps from Sweetwaters, the oversized, infinity-edge pool, offering unrestricted and private access directly from the patio of your room. Swim across to the bar and watch the sunset while you enjoy one of the resort’s signature cocktails, or take a romantic midnight swim. Summer rates are $425/night for the EP and $625 for AI (based on double occupancy).
  • Sunset Ocean View Junior Suites – Combining contemporary luxury with stunning ocean views, these junior suites feature private, furnished balconies, Jacuzzis, spacious living areas and luxury baths. Enjoy a view of Mount Gimie, the island’s tallest peak in the distance during the day, and the sparkling lights of Castries, the island’s capital, at night. Winter rates are $370/night for the EP and $570/night for AI (based on double occupancy)
For all your relaxation needs, the resort’s Ti Spa overlooks the oversized Sweetwaters infinity pool poised at bay’s edge and the wide expanse of the beach. Revitalizing treatments combine European technique with St. Lucia’s rich tradition of plant- and fruit-based curatives. Each can be enjoyed in a private treatment room or in the privacy of your room. The spa’s Fitness Centre is outfitted with Cybex cardiovascular equipment, and a full beauty salon offers hair treatments and mani - pedi services.

Calabash Cove’s own Windsong Restaurant offer an international menu with Asian inflections, specializing in seasonally inspired dishes made from the freshest local ingredients. Unobstructed views across the Caribbean Sea enhance the menu’s sensory delights. Complimenting Windsong’s elegant milieu is the convivial C-bar, which serves international cocktails and fine wines from the Calabash Cove Cellars amid lively island music.

For a quieter retreat or friendly game of chess, Whispers is the resort’s music and reading library, offering an impressive collection of both musical and printed notes from around the world. Or stroll the quiet walkways of Cove Gardens, an enchanting labyrinth of groves, ponds and terraces alive with fragrant local flora and fauna.

In addition to its natural beauty, St. Lucia’s increasing allure also comes from its broad array of activities. Whether its snorkeling, golf, soaking in the hot springs, enjoying world-class jazz, riding a cable through a rainforest canopy, shopping in a quaint fishing village, viewing exotic wildlife like giant turtles, rock climbing, searching for ancient petroglyphs, driving into a volcano or cooling off under a waterfall, St. Lucia has something to offer everyone, whether its romance or adventure they seek. Calabash Cove will help to transform guests’ dreams into reality with full concierge service for those who wish to explore the island.
