Saint Lucia is a beautiful oasis with some of the best weather and luxurious vegetation in the world.

Our private beach sheltered by nearby coral reef provides the perfect place to rest, reflect and dream.  Unlock your soul, rediscover your inner self and be in harmony with nature –good conversation, great food and amazing views are all present in the moment at Calabash Cove.
