Saint Lucia - not just for bachelors.....
....a must for lovers, SAINT LUCIA, known as the ‘Helen of the West Indies’, had already captured the hearts of producers for the hit U.S. series “The Bachelor” last year. Now, she has charmed producers again as the U.K. version of the show features Saint Lucia in its current season.
The UK “Bachelor” features Welsh Rugby Adonis Gavin Henson searching for love after his high profile split from singer Charlotte Church. After an ‘arduous’ few weeks of dating 25 beautiful women, Gavin leaves many heartbroken as he and his chosen ladies escape to Saint Lucia, where they explore the possibility of lasting romance in this intoxicatingly beautiful setting.
“We are happy that U.K. viewers now get a glimpse of what the island has to offer, and to see why it is the Caribbean’s premier romantic destination for engagements, destination weddings and honeymoons in the Caribbean,” said Calabash Cove Resort & Spa managing director Konrad Wagner.
Nestled on a lush, tropical hillside sloping gently toward the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, Calabash Cove Resort & Spa radiates romance with a secluded white sand beach and custom-designed boardwalk that’s perfect for candlelit dinners or romantic sunset strolls. The boutique resort’s charming and unique accommodations include handcrafted teak and mahogany Water’s Edge Cottages right on the beach, Swim-Up Suites and luxurious Sunset Ocean View Junior Suites. All accommodations feature private Jacuzzis and many offer private plunge pools, hammocks and outdoor rain showers.
Calabash Cove Resort & Spa’s attentive yet unobtrusive staff aim to anticipate every need and desire guests might have so that they can truly focus on each other.
In addition to its spectacular accommodations and service, Calabash Cove Resort & Spa offers world-class on-site amenities. The resort’s Ti Spa offers revitalizing treatments, including couples’ massages that combine European technique with Saint. Lucia’s rich tradition of plant and fruit-based curatives. The spa’s Fitness Centre is outfitted with Cybex cardiovascular equipment and a full beauty salon. Calabash Cove’s own Windsong Restaurant offers seasonally inspired dishes made from the freshest local ingredients and unobstructed ocean views. 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. Relax together in Whispers, the resort’s music and reading library, or stroll hand-in-hand 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.
Calabash Cove’s concierge service can help guests plan unforgettable excursions and day-trips. Discover each other as you explore the island together and hike to the summit of its landmark Pitons, side-by-side volcanic summits that are designated a World Heritage Site. Snorkel. Sail the Caribbean’s translucent blue, soak in natural hot springs and mineral baths, cool off under a tropical waterfall, ride a zip-line through a rainforest canopy, stroll through a quaint fishing village, view exotic wildlife like giant turtles, search for ancient petroglyphs, drive into a volcano, rock climb, golf . . . the list goes on with activities to suit every inclination.
