Boutique resort with spacious accommodations and traveler-approved cuisine
Adults-only property with limited on-site facilities
Situated on Bonaire Bay's secluded hillside about halfway between Castries and Rodney Bay, St. Lucia, the adults-only Calabash Cove boasts luxurious waterfront digs. Although a few previous guests said the decor inside their accommodations appeared worn and dated, most praised the clean, well-equipped spaces, especially the upgraded Water's Edge Cottages. These spacious 1,076-square-foot cottages come outfitted with private plunge pools, Jacuzzis, outdoor rain showers and hammocks. If your vacation budget isn't quite as flexible, the Sunset Ocean View Junior Suites feature private patios that overlook the resort's Mosaic Beach. Or, choose a Swim-Up Junior Suite, which offers direct access to the property's infinity pool. One other component past visitors raved about: the food at the swim-up pool bar and Windsong Restaurant. Adjacent to Windsong and the pool, you'll find Ti Spa, a European- and St. Lucian-inspired facility with indoor and outdoor treatment areas and a fitness center. You can also arrange off-site excursions (for a fee), such as hiking The Pitons, sailing and horseback riding.

Critic Reviews


Most of Calabash's impressive on-site amenities – including an infinity pool and a superb restaurant – are designed to take full advantage of the property’s dramatic sea views. These features entice many guests to spend most of their time on the property, especially on the Calabash's gorgeous beach, but the resort's isolated location means those who want to get away will need to rely on pricey taxis or rental cars.



Small, choice, and peaceful, this boutique all-inclusive resort has a lovely hillside location overlooking Bonaire Bay. It just seems to get everything right, from the personalized service from a crackerjack staff to the spacious and smart-looking cottages and villas, many with private plunge pools, hammocks, and outdoor rain showers, to the fresh and flavorful food at the resort restaurant, Windsong.

Frommer's Very Highly Recommended



The luxurious suites and individual cottages all face the sea at this inviting boutique resort on Bonaire Bay, down a long dirt road just south of Rodney Bay. The manor house at the top of a tropical hillside has lovely suites, an excellent restaurant, a dramatic pool, and a magnificent view.
