Calabash Cove Resort & Spa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
I just got back last night from a wonderful trip to St. Lucia. After weeks of researching I finally took a chance and booked our honeymoon at Calabash Cove Resort and Spa. My husband agrees, it was such an amazing experience. We were treated with such care and great hospitality. They knew it was our honeymoon and upgraded us from a pool suite to a cottage suite in front of the ocean. OMG! This was the most peaceful vacation I have ever been on (and I lived in the Caribbean years ago). We had a romantic dinner on the pier and a couples massage on our last night. While we went out for our last dinner the lovely ladies who took good care of us decorated our suite with flower petals, prepared the jacuzzi with bubbles and candles, left a plate of desserts, and a bottle of champagne. What a great surprise! The food was incredible, there was not one thing I disliked. I think I gained 5 lbs. but it was worth it. One morning my husband asked for mango juice which wasn't even on the menu and the waiter made it happen. We even paid for a private tour of the island. If you want to avoid the crowds, make sure to ask for Francis. This man knows the island inside and out and is a great tour guide. Too many people to mention by names, but again Thank you Calabash for making our stay a wonderful memory. Much love,Mr. & Mrs. Mendez
This looked like our sort of place, small & laid back but with 5 star service, we weren't disappointed! Our waterside cottage was spacious with rustic charm & a nice plunge pool, the beach was secluded, safe & clean, the gardens are lush & well tended (the gardeners will prepare a fresh coconut for you straight from the tree).The main pool has a swim up bar which became a social hub at lunchtimes if you wished to chat with other guests.We had two deep tissue massages at the Spa which were excellent.Food in the 'Windsong' restaurant was generally top class, lots of fresh fish and great breakfasts, the prawn tempura was our lunchtime favourite.The staff were without exception all very professional, but also friendly and helpful, special mention must go to Kris (Mr Fabulous) who looked after us like family.Overall, congratulations to Konrad for a well run & presented resort.Best wishes & our thanks to all the team.Barry & Sue Lawrence
We stayed for 9 days at this property. The gardens are absolutely lovely, the beach area is very attractive and the restaurant has a stunning view of the bay. Breakfast and dinner is served in the main restaurant, and the food is of a very high standard.There are 84 steps down to the beach and to the garden cottages, where we stayed, and so this resort would be unsuitable if you have walking problems. The property is reached by a narrow, steep, rough road 1/2 mile from the main road, and so if you wanted a car you would need a 4x4. We stayed at the resort for dinner every night, partly due to access issues, but mainly because we doubt you would eat anywhere better in Rodney Bay. We ate in and around Rodney Bay for lunch each day - Reduit Beach, Rodney Bay Marina and Pigeon Island. Calabash Cove Resort is a very quiet, beautiful, relaxed, peaceful property with excellent staff, and therefore very suitable for couples.
Celebrated our 10th anniversary here. Great place in idyllic setting! Extremely friendly staff. Grounds and facilities are well-maintained. Food was excellent. Would recommend highly for couples getaway.
Just home now from a wonderful stay at Calabash Cove and it's hard to summarize how much we loved it! My husband and I went for our 15th anniversary and we needed to get away from it ALL (jobs, kids, daily mayhem) and boy did Calabash Cove hit the mark! Calabash is a small hotel (25 rooms total) and at times you feel like you are the only ones there (which we loved). I think calabash is an excellent choice for people seeking an elegant quiet getaway. It is not a place for young party-types. We had swim up suite #103 and the website doesn't lie, it's breathtakingly beautiful! The patio and steps going into the infinity pool are out of a dream. We sat there every day at sunrise and sunset and it nevvverrrr got old. In fact, it got more and more beautiful. In reading other reviews, I will agree it's a bit of a gamble since the rooms are close to the swimup bar (loved that proximity!) and the noise level will depend on other guests there. Luckily for us, it was mostly quiet and we were able to sit out on our gorgeous patio in peace and quiet. The swimup bar closes at 5 which is helpful for noise control as well. From the moment you arrive and take in the view from the lobby, you know you are somewhere special. The staff is beyond lovely- so kind, caring and genuine. The service is sublime. The food is shockingly amazing! Whether at the dining room or eating by the swimup bar or via room service, we couldn't believe how good everything was and how beautifully it was presented. We did not do the all-inclusive because we had several day long outings planned and I'm glad we didn't. We aren't big drinkers and while we had a number of excellent meals at calabash, doing the breakfast-only option worked well for us. This was our first time in St Lucia and we will be back- such an exquisite island- it's like you're in Jurassic park with all the rainforest and lush greenery. Not a lot of sprawling beaches but that was fine by us. We climbed the Gros Piton one day (hard but awesome) and went snorkeling another day (amazzzzinngg and highly recommend Scuba Steve out of Rodney bay; they picked us up on the beach at calabash and then we took a gorgeous 45 minute boat ride to the Piton area for absolutely incredible snorkeling/scuba diving)To be objective, a few slight negatives for calabash:1. The swim out suites are amazing but the rooms themselves are on the small side. Not that you're in them very often, but it's a tad cramped2. The bathrooms could use some updating and more warm water.3. As many other people have commented, the road connecting calabash to the main road is awful and is in dire need of repairs. 4. While I fully appreciate the elegant and upscale dress code for the dining room, I think it needs to be communicated to guests in advance so they can pack appropriately. Since it's the only option to go to at dinner, we ordered room service one night that we were very tired and didn't feel like dressing up. Another night we took a taxi to Rodney bay and enjoyed a fun laid-back mexican restaurant. However, being that its such a small resort, I fully understand why they do it they way they do and we appreciated the backup option of casual style room service (the burgers are incredible and so are the fries!) All in all, calabash is a true gem in paradise and we would recommend it to anyone seeking a refined and stunning escape 💗
