Find comfort and joy this holiday season reconnecting with loved ones at Calabash Cove Resort & Spa, a peaceful beachfront boutique resort in picturesque St. Lucia.

Calabash Cove, which announces holiday availability and rates beginning at just $230 per night, is the perfect gathering spot for geographically spread-out families to celebrate the season together stress-free. Nestled on a lush, tropical hillside sloping gently toward the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, Calabash Cove Resort & Spa’s 26 luxurious accommodations include unique Swim-Up Suites and Water’s Edge Cottages, many with private pools and all with Jacuzzis and unparalleled ocean views. Amenities include a private beach and custom boardwalk, infinity-edge designer swimming pool with a natural rock waterfall, restaurant, spa and fitness center, cocktail bar, tropical gardens and music and game library.

All accommodations include daily breakfast buffet. All-inclusive luxury gourmet meal and beverage plans also are available. Choose from:

  •          Ocean View Junior Suites – Combining contemporary luxury with stunning ocean views, the Junior Suites are located next to the Manor House near Sweetwaters, the resort’s pool, and offer Jacuzzis, private balconies, spacious living areas and luxury baths.
  •     Sunset Junior Suites – These elegant suites are located above Sweetwaters, overlooking the resort’s own Mosaic Beach and the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. Featuring Jacuzzis, private balconies, spacious living areas and luxury baths, these rooms provide a view of Mount Gimie in the distance and the sparkling lights of Castries at night.
  •     Swim-Up Junior Suites – These unique suites are located just steps from Sweetwaters, offering unrestricted and private access directly from the patio of your room. Swim across to the bar and watch the sunset while enjoying one of the resort’s signature cocktails, or take a peaceful midnight swim and admire the stars. At 620 square feet with a private balcony and spacious living area, the Swim-Up Junior Suites provide ample space to spread out and make a home away from home during the holidays.
  •     Waters Edge Cottages - The nine handcrafted teak and mahogany Waters Edge Cottages feature private plunge pools, Jacuzzis, outdoor rain showers and hammocks surrounded by tropical flora oft visited by the island’s hummingbirds. Enjoy unparalleled views of the bay with the majestic Pitons in the distance and the exquisite Caribbean sunsets. The living area provides ample space and refreshing sea breezes. Each has TV/DVD/hi-fi systems, refrigerators and coffee/tea makers, large patios, and hammocks.

Once everyone is settled in, head down to Calabash Cove’s secluded, white-sand beach and catch up on each other’s lives as you watch the waves gently roll in. Take the resort’s complimentary sea kayaks out onto the crystal blue Caribbean waters and explore the island’s coastline. Or, let Calabash Cove’s concierge help you create unforgettable holiday adventures with outings to St. Lucia’s numerous, one-of-a-kind activities and sights. Marvel at the landmark Pitons--side-by-side volcanic summits designated a World Heritage Site. Sail aboard the Brig Unicorn, one of the yachts used in the film “Pirates of the Caribbean.” Soar above a rainforest canopy via zip-line, view exotic wildlife like giant turtles and rare parrots, try your hand at deep-sea fishing, shop in a quaint fishing village, search for ancient petroglyphs, soak in a hot spring, cool off under a waterfall, golf, snorkel, rock climb … the list goes on. St. Lucia offers something for everyone.

Eat, drink and be merry at Calabash Cove’s own Windsong Restaurant, which features an international menu with Asian inflections and specializes in seasonally inspired dishes made from the freshest local ingredients. Complementing Windsong’s elegant milieu is the convivial C-bar, which serves international cocktails and fine wines from the Calabash Cove Cellars amid festive island music. Both have spectacular ocean views.

Look and feel your holiday best with a visit to the resort’s Ti Spa, 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, and a full line of hair and other beauty services are available. With its idyllic beach and stunning gardens--filled with extensive local flora as well as banana, cane and pineapple patches—Calabash Cove provides a picture-perfect backdrop for those group photos as you make memories that will last a lifetime.

“We love to see the holiday spirit come alive in our guests when they arrive,” said Calabash Cove’s managing director Konrad Wagner. “You can see their stresses melt away as they enjoy being together this special time of the year in such a beautiful, serene setting.”
