Luxurious, Beachfront Calabash Cove Resort & Spa the Ideal Destination for Reunions with Family and Friends

RECONNECT WITH LOVED ONES IN A CARIBBEAN ISLAND PARADISE

Luxurious, Beachfront Calabash Cove Resort & Spa the Ideal Destination for Reunions with Family and Friends

Gather your geographically scattered family or friends for a relaxing reunion at a luxurious beachfront retreat on the Caribbean’s most beautiful island, rising where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Caribbean Sea.

St. Lucia’s Calabash Cove Resort & Spa, a sought-after setting for destination weddings, is also the perfect meeting place for family reunions and gatherings of old friends. With its idyllic beach – perfect for lounging as you catch up on each other’s lives -- 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 renew bonds and make new memories.

Book a group of rooms or the entire resort for your reunion. Calabash Cove’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 pristine beach and custom boardwalk, infinity-edge designer swimming pool with a natural rock waterfall, restaurant, spa and fitness center, cocktail bar, and music and game library.

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

• 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.

• 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 to meet up with your group 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 during your stay.

• Water’s 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, meet at the resort’s oversized, infinity-edge pool or its beach, where the more active among the group can 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.

Try your hand at sailing or cruise aboard an authentic pirate’s galleon down the coast of the island to Soufriere, where you can explore the world’s only drive-in volcano, visit Diamond Falls, the most colorful waterfall in the Caribbean, or soak in mineral baths believed to hold therapeutic properties. Soar above a rainforest canopy via zip-line, view exotic wildlife like giant turtles and rare parrots, go deep-sea fishing, shop in a quaint fishing village, search for ancient petroglyphs, soak in a hot spring, cool off under a waterfall, take a helicopter tour, golf, snorkel, rock climb … the list goes on. St. Lucia offers something for everyone.

Enjoy gourmet cuisine with your conversation at Calabash Cove’s own Windsong Restaurant, which features an international menu of 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.
