“A perfect week at Sugar Beach St Lucia. My wife and I have been to many Caribbean islands where we have stayed at resorts and private homes. Sugar Beach is incomparable. The location of the resort, nestled in between the two volcanic ‘pitons’, is unrivaled for natural beauty and dramatic scenery. The property is an island within an island.The back-drop is a lush rainforest dotted with discretely sited private cottages. The foreground is a magnificent, protected, private bay and beach. Each residence has a unique view of the sea, vegetation and sky. Each one has ample and well-designed indoor and outdoor spaces.

“The quality of service at Sugar Beach exists in no other resort. A private butler is on call 24/7. The staff in the restaurants, at the beach and in the spa is professional, attentive, kind, amiable and eager to please. The menus at The Great House would rate ***** in any city. The English chef, who came to our table because we had raved about her to our waiters, was delightful to engage in conversation. Her gastronomic credentials were first-rate.
Sugar Beach is unique in every measurement of resort/hotel qualities. There is no more pleasant, beautiful, happy place to spend one’s holidays.” Tripadvisor Review

Calabash Cove Resort & Spa, St Lucia

It’s hard to describe the first impressions of Calabash Cove Resort & Spa in a way that will do the first few steps, and that view, justice, but the closest thing we can liken it to is taking a slow, deep breath and then feeling your whole body begin to relax as you exhale.

Looking down at Marigot Bay from the meandering island road in the St Lucian hills above as we approached the resort, with its sparkling waters and dramatic rainforest backdrop, was a spectacular way to get reaquainted.
