Plan a Worry-Free Escape to Calabash Cove Resort & Spa Idyllic Saint Lucia Beachfront Boutique Resort Guarantees
You Won't Miss a Single Day in Paradise in the Unlikely Event a Hurricane Interrupts or Prevents Your Stay
St. Lucia, West Indies --- "No wind, no rain ... can stop me, babe, if you're my goal," sang legendary crooner Diana Ross during her unforgettable rendition of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" at this year's Saint Lucia Jazz fest.
Well, if a getaway to the island's romantic Calabash Cove Resort & Spa

Equally, should your travel plans be disrupted by a hurricane, you can reschedule without penalty within a year.
"We're pretty far south here on Saint Lucia -- outside of the normal path of hurricanes that tend to form over open waters on their way up to the more northern Caribbean islands, the Southeastern United States and Eastern Mexico," said Calabash Cove managing director Konrad Wagner. "But we want our guests to know that a hurricane would not cause them to miss out on a single day in our island paradise."
This summer and fall is a great time to visit Calabash Cove, which is offering the lowest rates of the year on its luxurious, boutique accommodations through December 22, 2012. In addition, JetBlue Airways offers increased, daily non-stop flights between New York's JFK International Airport (JFK) and St. Lucia's Hewanorra Airport (UVF) through September 4.

Interesting story out from the AP:
ST. GEORGE'S, GRENADA -- Those seeking a new way to explore the eastern Caribbean islands might soon have another option.
A ferry slated to serve Barbados, St. Lucia, Trinidad, Grenada and St. Vincent is expected to start operating daily by late October, according to Grenada-based BEDY Ocean Line.
Prices will range from $120 to $140, and some trips will last up to nearly four hours, CEO Benjamin Ross said Tuesday.
The announcement comes as travellers face pricier airline tickets, increased baggage restrictions and canceled flights by regional carrier LIAT due to wage disputes.
One ferry will be based in St. Vincent and serve Barbados and St. Lucia, while another will operate out of Grenada and serve Trinidad and Barbados, Ross said. Between 260 to 300 seats will be available per ferry.
Passengers will be allowed to carry two 60-pound (27-kilogram) suitcases without charge, and alcohol is prohibited on board.
In 2005, Barbadian company Remac Tours announced it would offer ferry service between Barbados and Guadeloupe, with stops in St. Lucia, Dominica and Martinique. But the service was never begun for internal reasons not related to costs or demand, CEO Reynold McClean said.
Currently, only a couple of ferries operate between Florida and the Bahamas and among Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the British Virgin Islands.
An article in USAToday points out several new routes to the Caribbean, including the DR, St. Lucia, and Barbados:
Cheap flights to the Dominican Republic won't be hard to find this summer thanks to ultra-low-cost carrier Spirit. The airline has recently resumed its service between its Ft. Lauderdale hub and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, available through September 8. Meanwhile, Spirit's new service to Santiago from Ft. Lauderdale begins June 20.
NEW YORK, April 29 -- JetBlue Airways plans to further develop its growing international route network this fall with new service to the Caribbean island of Saint Lucia, subject to receipt of government operating authority. Award-winning JetBlue intends to serve Saint Lucia's Hewanorra International Airport with flights to/from its home at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport. From JFK, JetBlue plans to offer onward connections to/from other U.S. cities. Flights are expected to go on sale in June.

Gay Nagle Myers is reporting on Travel Weekly that the Jalousie resort on St. Lucia will be undergoing a makeover:
The Jalousie Plantation on St. Lucia, a UNESCO World Heritage site, will be rebranded, repositioned and reopened in 2010 as the Tides Sugar Beach, the Kor Hotel Group's first Caribbean offering under the Tides brand.
The resort, which is set on 325 acres between the towering Pitons on St. Lucia's southwestern coast, will close early next summer for a $100 million upgrade and renovation, according to Roger Myers, the property's owner.
When the Jalousie reopens as the all-inclusive Tides Sugar Beach, it will include 150 villas and guestrooms with private pools; water and land activities; a beach lounge; a fitness center; four restaurants; and a number of personal assistants, much like the private butlers found at several Caribbean resorts.
