This resort has many pluses. To start the staff is beyond amazing with superior customer service in all areas- cleaning, restaurant, bar. Everyone was happy and went the extra mile to help. The pool and grounds were beautiful and nicely maintained- the pictures are accurate. We stayed in a cottage with a plunge pool. The cottage is just that- a... More

I would agree with all of the favourable reviews that I have read - which is why I made my booking in the first place. So, I wish to state from the beginning, that I am not generally complaining! I had a top floor room in the separate building which was absolutely perfect for me - fantastic view - huge... More

This is a very unique place, when you walk in you feel that somebody really loves and cares for this place. Views, architecture, gardens are fantastic. I will not forget the smells. Employees are the right kind of friendly, personable without pushing anything. Run by an Austrian with genuine talent for hospitality who'll set up sunset cocktails for people to... More

This was the most awesome wedding and honeymoon location we could have ever found. The resort is intimate and personal. The restaurant is amazing, not what you would expect from an all inclusive (normally a buffet). The staff is so wonderfully friendly and there is no detail that is missed. Unita (the hotel manager) and her entire staff are to... More

We stayed at Calabash Cove back in June 2013 for our 2 week honeymoon. The resort arranged for a car to pick us up from the airport and although the driver was almost an hour late, he certainly made up for it...ice cold beers provided and a wonderful drive across the island seeing all the sights! Upon arrival at the... More

Stayed in one of the private cottages and i must say it is everything you look for in a romantic gettaway. The privacy of the room, the private pool, the endless supply of the mini bar and the views are insane. The guest pool and beach are just a few steps away and the staff are lovely and fun. We...

We spent the second part of our honeymoon at Calabash Cove Resort. We had researched a lot before booking and had read a lot of great reviews on it before we came away. We chose to stay here mainly for the high standard of accommodation (as it was our honeymoon we wanted something luxurious and special) and also for the... More

This is our third visit to Calabash. Its suits us down to the ground. If you're after a relaxing, quiet holiday, this place is for you. We stay in the swim up rooms, which are smaller than the sunset rooms but have the advantage of being on the ground floor (can't have too much exercise on hols!!) and from your... More

My wife and I had a very relaxing week here in February. Quite a long way from the main road and no possibility of walking along the beach beyond the Hotel and not recommended for those who have walking difficulties as there are steps everywhere. A very good pool and bar area and a pleasant restaurant although the service could... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tucked away on gently sloping, tropical beachfront on the northwest coast of the island, Calabash Cove is one of just a select few five-star resorts on St. Lucia. Nestled in the sheltered bay of Bonaire Estate, Calabash Cove is perched on a hillside sloping gently towards the Caribbean Sea, where cool ocean breezes provide a wonderful respite and the turquoise sea is offset by the vibrant green of tropical vegetation and views of Walcott Island. A private beach and nearby coral reef provide the perfect place to rest, reflect and dream. The resort has been designed with great care to complement and exist in harmony with the beauty of the natural surroundings. The main buildings of the hotel, such as the lobby, restaurant, bar, sanctuary, and infinity pool with waterfall lie on a slope, with the villas in the midst of lush vegetation perfectly situated to view nightly sunsets. The natural elements of earth, wind, light and water are represented in the exotic wood, stone and natural materials used in the composition of the buildings. The peaceful and tranquil gardens, under the care of one of the finest landscape architects in the Caribbean, have been created to capture and optimize the natural splendor of the area and are filled with vibrant, fragrant flowers set amid groves of trees. ... more   less
