Inclusive Package--Ideal for Destination Weddings with Up to 52 Guests

Have the destination wedding of your dreams at St. Lucia’s boutique Calabash Cove Resort & Spa, which can become a private paradise for you and 50 of your guests with the resort’s Carefree All Inclusive Package.

Calabash Cove Resort & Spa is a stunning, beachfront boutique hideaway specializing in creating customized, stress-free wedding experiences that you and your guests will cherish forever. Perched on a lush tropical hillside sloping gently toward the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, Calabash Cove’s luxurious and spacious accommodations include nine handcrafted teak and mahogany Balinese-styleWaters Edge Cottages right on the beach – all with private, secluded pools, super-sized honeymoon Jacuzzis, outdoor rain showers and hammocks surrounded by lush tropical flora – as well as a number of magnificent Manor House Suites, all with dramatic ocean and sunset views and some with private, poolside “Swim Up” patios. All rooms have King-size beds, Jacuzzis, showers, mini bars, large flat screen TVs, complimentary high speed internet access, A/C, telephone, and private balconies or patios with teak tables and chairs.

Knowledgeable resort staff attends to every detail so the bride and groom, along with their guests, can focus on savoring the event and the remarkable surroundings. St. Lucia is known as the “Helen of the West Indies” for its incomparable natural beauty, and Calabash Cove was designed with care to exist in harmony with its spectacular environment.

Choose from idyllic locations within the resort or on its picturesque beach for the ceremony and reception, including:
  • The Pier, with the sapphire sea and sky forming one as your backdrop, the gentle sounds of the ocean waves beneath you, and tropical flora and fauna delicately spun along wooden deck rails.
  • The Beach, with sunlight reflecting like diamonds off the crystal-white sand beneath your feet and the gentle, rhythmic lapping of Caribbean waves providing a serene soundtrack.
  • The Gazebo, an intimate setting in a charming, handcrafted gazebo adorned with exotic tropical flowers and greenery, overlooking the glistening waters and coastal landscape.
  • The Cove Garden Bridge, located in the most ideal and serene spot, surrounded by lush tropical flora and palm trees and the tranquil waters of Bonaire Bay completing this magnificent milieu.
Before and after the nuptials, guests can soak up the island’s beauty or see Calabash Cove’s concierge to select from a broad array of activities and excursions. Whether it’s snorkeling, sailing, golf, soaking in the hot springs, gliding on a cable through a rainforest canopy, shopping in a quaint fishing village, viewing exotic wildlife like giant turtles, hiking and rock climbing (sites include the landmark Pitons, side-by-side volcanic summits designated a World Heritage Site), searching for ancient petroglyphs, driving into a volcano or cooling off under a waterfall, St. Lucia has something to offer everyone — the perfect combination of romance and adventure.
