Calabash is sureal. The property itself is a dream, and the staff treat you as if you are old friends. Cadesia, Kevin, Lance and the entire staff made our stay something we will never forget. They went above and beyond to help me surprise my husband for his 40th birthday, and make it the trip of a lifetime. We were...

It took almost 2 hours to get from the airport to the hotel by cab, which cost $100 each way. The road to access the hotel is really in terrible shape, so the last 300 meter are very bumpy. There was a nice cab driver named Rahim who drove us back and forth. The hotel is perched on the coastal...

I am happy that we chose Calabash Cove over any other resort in St. Lucia. The resort is 26 rooms and sits on top of a hill. Calabash Cove is approximately an hour and 15 minutes away from the airport. It takes about 3-5 minutes to go up an unfinished road to the resort which at first was confusing and...

This is really a pretty good hotel - friendly staff, high standard of accommodation and good food. There are a lot of steps so if your knees are dodgy then its definitely not for you!

My husband and I have spent considerable time in the Caribbean, including over 400 nights in total at one of the popular resort chains, and we visited just about every island.

Me and my wife went here for our honeymoon (10/9/2016 thru 10/19/2016). It was worth every penny. We had a waterfront cottage and honestly it was well worth the once in a lifetime experience.

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
