Book It: Calabash Cove
The entrance of the open-air, Bali-style Calabash Cove Resort & Spa reveals endless water views. The resort's intimate spaces are ideal for couples looking to relax; 13 Sunset Junior suites overlook Mosaic Beach with private hot tubs, and four Swim-Up Junior suites have lanais that lead to the resort's infinity-edge pool. Rates start at $774.
Dine: All meals are served in Windsong (although the swim-up bar serves a casual lunch menu) or via room service; the menu has an Asian twist, but still draws on local produce and island flavors like the smoky St. Lucian crab backs with mango mojo on organic leaves, and the local octopus tempura with tart pickled ginger and fresh spicy chili seaweed.
Don't Miss: The swim-up bar is the place to be at sunset with a drink in hand. (Try the Lucian Mama, a sweet concoction of orange juice, banana, cacao Creole, and dark rum.) Then watch the golden sun disappear into the sea from the edge of the infinity pool.
