When people ask us “what do you think is the most romantic vacation destination?” (and we always get that question), a whole list of destinations comes to mind–and one of those is always St. Lucia. This Caribbean island, with its lush mountainsides thick with towering trees and air perfumed by exuberant flowering vines climbing the steep slopes, is a poster for romance. If the two of you are looking for the perfect spot to plan your future together, you can’t go wrong in the romantic embrace of St. Lucia.
One destination that’s popular with lovers is Calabash Cove Resort & Spa, located on St. Lucia’s northern shore, which offers romantics the perfect place to pop the question. Stay in the resort’s charming Water’s Edge Cottages, handcrafted in teak and mahogany, or opt for a Swim-Up Suite or Sunset and Ocean View Junior Suite. All suites include private Jacuzzis; some also offer private plunge pools, hammocks, and outdoor showers. Just steps away, the wonders of the Caribbean Sea beckon; stroll the white sand beach or along the resort’s boardwalk, snorkel the nearby reef, or just relax under the warm Caribbean sun.
Calabash Cove’s personal concierge service can help you plan romantic excursions around the island’s gorgeous interior whether it’s hiking and picnicking around the Piton’s dramatic peaks, visiting idyllic fishing villages, or day sailing in the yacht Brig Unicorn, which appeared in the Pirates of the Caribbean movie and more recently on ABC-TV’s “The Bachelor,” which filmed last season’s finale on the island. Your concierge can handle all the arrangements, leaving you free to concentrate on each other.
Indulge in some serious relaxation at the Ti Spa with a couples massage at sunset, or choose one of the Spa’s other unique treatments, all inspired by a rich healing tradition based on St. Lucia’s many curative plant species.
Dining at the resort’s elegant Windsong Restaurant offers a chance to experience St. Lucia’s island delicacies as you enjoy spectacular ocean views. After a romantic meal, stop by the lively C-Bar for a tropical cocktail or wine from Calabash Cove’s cellars.
