St. Lucia Island’s Luxurious New Beachfront Retreat Offers Idyllic Setting and Amenities to Start the New Year Right
St. Lucia, West Indies --- You’ve juggled the responsibilities of another busy year, sometimes stressed, worn-out and often neglecting yourself, but never dropping the ball. Now it’s time to make sure you can do it all again in 2013 with a rejuvenating escape to Calabash Cove Resort & Spa.
At this new, oceanfront boutique resort on the stunning Caribbean island of St. Lucia, where temperatures average a balmy 80 degrees with soothing trade breezes and the Pitons World Heritage Site provides a stunning backdrop, relaxation and renewal rises to a new level. Luxurious accommodations include the 1,000-square-foot Water’s Edge Cottages with secluded plunge pools, outdoor rain showers and private hammocks, as well as unique Swim-Up, Sunset and Oceanview Jr. Suites. All of the resort’s accommodations offer unparalleled views from the luxury of your balcony and are beautifully appointed, making use of natural materials such as Balinese mahogany wherever possible.
Nourish and indulge the senses while rejuvenating body and mind at Calabash Cove’s own Ti Spa, Fitness Centre and Beauty Parlour, located next to Sweetwaters, the resort’s 100-foot, infinity-edge pool. The spa features private treatment rooms, manned by knowledgeable and skilled associates, and an array of offerings designed to cleanse the body of stress, including:
- Volcanic Body Mask -- Enhances circulation with a highly mineralized application from the Sulfer Springs of Soufriere. Step into the warm Caribbean Sea and let the waves gently rinse you before enjoying a soothing massage.
- Coconut & Sugar Scrub – Coconut milk and oil is used by St. Lucian mothers to keep their babies’ skin supple. This is an ideal exfoliating treatment, followed by a soothing massage, to reveal a youthful, health glow.
- Fig La Se Sa Nou Tout – The banana is known for its silkening properties and ability to draw out impurities, and makes this wrap a must.
- Gros-Lo Fwi Polish – Enjoy an aromatic, exfoliating fruit polish under the sea grape tree at water’s edge. A dip in the ocean followed by a light massage completes the treatment.
Continue the feast of the senses with some more literal nourishment at the onsite Windsong Restaurant, which offers unobstructed views across the Caribbean Sea and seasonally inspired dishes made from the freshest local ingredients. How fresh? Our fishermen sometimes drop off their catch right on our beach as they return from sea. Complementing Windsong’s elegant milieu is the convivial C-bar, which serves international cocktails and fine wines from the Calabash Cove Cellars amid lively island music. Choose from the European Plan (EP), featuring a daily island breakfast buffet, or the Luxury Gourmet Plan (LGP), a convenient, all-inclusive option that includes all meals and beverages throughout your stay.
Relax in Whispers, the resort’s music and reading library, or meander the quiet walkways of Cove Gardens, an enchanting labyrinth of groves, ponds and terraces alive with fragrant local flora and fauna and the soothing sounds of birds and wind chimes. Soak up the island’s beauty or dust off and jump start your wintertime exercise routine by taking it outdoors in the sultry tropics. Snorkel or dive in the Caribbean’s translucent blue waters, hike to the summit of a breathtaking Piton, enjoy a round of golf or jog barefoot on a powder-white sand beach. Then soak in natural hot springs or cool off under a waterfall. Calabash Cove’s concierge service will help you assemble a perfect lineup of active fun from the plethora of recreational opportunities on the island.
Room rates begin at $320 per night through Dec. 20, 2012, $450 per night between Dec. 21, 2012 and Jan. 3, 2013, and $405 per night from Jan. 4 to April 11, 2013, based on double occupancy.
