My boyfriend just popped the question a few days ago, and now I’m starry-eyed thinking about where to spend our honeymoon. Saint Lucia tops my list, thanks to its famous landmark mountains, known as the Pitons; its strong musical traditions; and its fantastic cuisine (a unique blend of West African, European and East Indian fare). Oh, and let’s not forget the stunning views of the turquoise-blue Caribbean Sea. Luckily, Calabash Cove Resort & Spa—the chosen destination for the season finale of ABC-TV’s The Bachelor—is offering special packages for those who are looking for romance.
The beachfront boutique resort is nestled on a lush and tropical hillside along the private Bonaire Bay with a secluded beach, panoramic ocean vistas and exquisite ambiance. Amenities at the resort include a 40-foot infinity-edge pool, a swim-up bar, several decks for sunbathing, a music room in which to enjoy cocktails, the Ti Spa (featuring plant- and fruit-based curatives), the Oceanview Gym and a beauty salon (offering facials, and manis and pedis).
Choose from three romance packages, including:
Enjoy five nights in a Sunset Oceanview Jr. Suite (each of these suites face the Caribbean sunset), located above the Sweetwaters infinity-edge pool and overlooking the private Mosaic Beach. The package also includes a couples’ massage at Ti Spa and a dreamy beach-side candlelit dinner, followed by a room set up with flowers, Champagne and chocolate dessert. $2,360 per couple (use promo code: ESCAPE)
This seven-night package includes everything in the Honeymoon Escapade package, plus roundtrip luxury transfers to and from Hewanorra International Airport and a carefree all-inclusive plan (including premium wines and liquor). $4,835 per couple (use promo code: HEAVEN)
Enjoy seven nights in a Water’s Edge Cottage, featuring Balinese mahogany, secluded plunge pools, Jacuzzis, outdoor rain showers and hammocks. The package also boasts roundtrip luxury transfers to and from Hewanorra International Airport, welcome fruit and wine in your room upon arrival, and a beach-side candlelit dinner followed by a room set up with flowers, Champagne and chocolate dessert. $6,050 per couple (use promo code: CAREFREE)
The only catch is that travel must be booked by Aug. 31 for travel by Dec. 20, 2014.
