St. Lucia, West Indies (Vocus) July 21, 2010
Create the ideal, picture-perfect getaway against which to pop that once-in-a-life question, with peaceful strolls along a picturesque St. Lucia beach, romantic dinners and picnics, as well as fun yet idyllic excursions. Here at Calabash Cove Resort & Spa, you can ask your sweetheart to marry you and be sure she’ll say “yes.”
How did Calabash Cove come to be known as one of the Caribbean’s dreamiest destinations, the absolute perfect place to propose? Let us count the ways:
1. Location: Nestled on a lush, tropical hillside sloping gently toward the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, Calabash Cove Resort & Spa radiates romance with a secluded white sand beach and custom-designed boardwalk that’s perfect for candlelit dinners or romantic sunset strolls. The resort’s charming and unique accommodations include handcrafted teak and mahogany Water’s Edge Cottages right on the beach, Swim-Up Suites and luxurious Sunset and Ocean View Junior Suites. All accommodations feature private Jacuzzis and many offer private plunge pools, hammocks and outdoor rain showers.
2. Inspiration: Let Calabash Cove’s personal concierge service transform your proposal plans into something truly spectacular with friendly, expert planning assistance. Picnic on a picturesque, powder-soft beach or take in the landmark Piton mountains’ dramatically soaring peaks. Or, stroll through one of the island’s quaint and colorful fishing villages, explore the thousand-year-old Pigeon Island nature park, or try your hand at deep sea fishing as you bask under the hot Caribbean sun. Take a playful yet romantic excursion with a chartered ride on the Brig Unicorn, one of the yachts used in the film "Pirates of the Caribbean” and more recently on ABC-TV’s “The Bachelor,” which filmed last season’s finale on the island. Then, stop in the town of Soufrière to see the Diamond waterfalls and Sulphur Springs.
3. Relaxation: When you’re ready to head back to the resort, visit the Ti Spa and indulge in some of its island-inspired treatments, allowing you to truly relax and focus on each other as you imagine your future together. Enjoy a beachfront couples’ massages at sunset, combine European techniques with St. Lucia’s rich tradition of plant- and fruit-based curatives. Dine at the resort’s ocean view Windsong Restaurant, which offers 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. Or, you can relax together in Whispers, the resort’s music and reading library, or meander hand-in-hand the quiet walkways of Cove Gardens, an enchanting labyrinth of groves, ponds and terraces alive with fragrant local flora and fauna and the soothing sounds of birds and wind chimes.
