All That Jazz


The Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and the April 29 to May 8 festival is being billed as the place to be for those seeking hot days and cool jazz, cool nights and hot jazz – or both.

Calabash Cove Resort & Spa, a boutique oceanfront hotel on Saint Lucia, gets into the swing of things with its Jazz Fest Special: 35% off the regular room rate for four nights with the fifth night free.

The Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival has earned international accolades, drawing some of the world’s top musicians to the West Indian nation. Diana Ross, Herbie Hancock and Elton John are among the icons who have graced its stages. This year’s roster of 50-plus performers includes Shaggy, George Benson, Air Supply, Kassav and Kool and the Gang.

This year’s festival will play out across more than 15 venues island-wide with a full calendar of free and paid events. In addition to world-class musicians, the Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival celebrates local arts, culture and cuisine with tributes to award-winning chefs, street parties and “Hot Couture,” a showcase for Saint Lucian fashion designers on par with major runway shows worldwide.
Calabash Cove Resort & Spa is a 26-room boutique hotel overlooking Bonaire Bay on the north coast of Saint Lucia. The hotel offers Windsong, the hotel’s open-air restaurant, a lobby bar and a swim-up pool bar. The hotel offers complimentary non-motorized water sports, beach lounges and WiFi.
