Already a small screen star as a retreat for reality TV romantics on the US version of The Bachelor, the serene Saint Lucia sanctuary Calabash Cove Resort & Spa is once again a television vision as the UK edition of the hit series films in the ‘Helen of the West Indies.’
Welsh rugby star Gavin Henson– the former flame of singer Charlotte Church– and 25 potential soul mates began their search for true love in Europe before the remaining Ms. Rights embarked on a sojourn to Saint Lucia to win the heart and soul of the high-profile bachelor.
Along with a secluded white sand beach, the boutique retreat’s handcrafted teak and mahogany Water’s Edge cottages, private jacuzzis, hammocks and outdoor rain showers provide a paradise for any pair. The resort also offers transcendental treatments at the Ti Spa, romantic repasts at the Windsong Restaurant, music to fit the mood at Whispers, (a music and reading library), and the botanical beauty of Cove Gardens, an exotic Eden filled with local flora and fauna.
A concierge service and help couples who wish to explore the area. Lovebirds can hike to the peak of the Pitons, snorkel or sail in the sapphire blue Caribbean, soak in natural hot springs or mineral baths, zipline through a rainforest canopy, rock climb, golf, search for ancient petroglyphs, or simply relax and contemplate a future filled with love.
