No need to leave the water- you can go straight from your terrace into the pool, and even swim up to the bar.

Don’t miss the Monday night Cocktail and Canapé party which you can meet the management and other guests with a superb view of the sunset! Sit in the swinging Egg shaped seats too.

The Leisure Concierge at Calabash Cove offers a number of individually tailored excursions. Treat yourself to a romantic champagne picnic in the heart of the lush tropical countryside, hike to the top of one of the majestic Pitons and witness unrivalled views across the island or why not enjoy the same breathtaking vistas from the comfort of your own helicopter.

Location & Directions

Gros Islet, North Coast, St Lucia

Calabash Cove is tucked away on a gently sloping beachfront on the northwest coast of the island of St. Lucia. Nestled in the sheltered bay of Bonaire Estate and close to Gross Islet, with views of Walcott Island.

When to go

Offering warm temperatures throughout the year the Caribbean is a perfect year round destination. With an average of 9 hours sunshine a day the peak season runs from December through to April which is the dry season when you can expect very little rainfall. May to November are the slightly wetter months where you will find an increase in rainfall as the summer season goes on and with that some humidity, however the Summer months are still a great time to travel as the temperatures are hot and the rain tends to come in short heavy bursts but not all day long. The wettest months with the most humidity are September and October and these are the most probable months for hurricanes to occur in the region although many islands have not experienced hurricanes for a number of years. The average daily temperatures range from the mid-seventies in the winter months and mid-eighties in the summertime.
