St. Lucia | Calabash Cove Collaboration

DREAMS do come true. Calabash Cove is a true gem that I was able to work and collaborate with while also enjoying some fun in the sun with my husband. This was our first trip to St. Lucia and it was everything we were hoping for and imaging. The turquoise ocean, the top notch friendly staff, and the delicious food for EVERY meal… made this trip our favorite by far.

Calabash Cove is a boutique resort in St Lucia, West Indies that everyone should visit in their lifetime. I would describe it as a romantic, intimate, soothing while relaxing resort that isn’t obnoxiously loud or overwhelming. It is the perfect spot for a wedding, honeymoon, anniversary, birthday….ANY celebration that you want to be treated as their number ONE guest and truly experience a vacation like no other.

Upon arrival we were greeted with cold towels, a drink of our choice, and led to our stunning Waters Edge room with a private plunge pool and outdoor shower. But first…photos of the resort and what we were brought there to do.

After the first night we were moved to the Swim up Junior Suite. I have to say this was our favorite room thanks to the swim up pool and being so close to the restaurant and pool. The view over the horizon every morning was breathtaking while listening to the birds and waves crash below.

With the resort being smaller, we were able to make many new friends because we would see everyone around that we had chatted with throughout our day. We left this resort with some new lifelong friends and are so grateful for the intimate setting to get to know so many people on our trip.

Three of my favorite meals while on the resort…wildberry pancakes, caesar salad with Mahi, and goat cheese with toast.

If you are looking for a relaxing vacation that is quaint, peaceful, and the best views in St. Lucia, be sure to check out Calabash Cove and tell them Amy sent you!
