Voted “favorite spa in the Caribbean” by SpaFinder, St. Lucia’s The BodyHoliday is the ultimate body-mind-spirit escape. At this adults-only resort on picturesque Cariblue Beach—where daily treatments are included in the rates—you can customize your own “body holiday” online even before you leave home. Once there, indulge in aromatherapy, a dozen different types of massage, Ayurvedic treatments, wraps, yoga, and personal-trainer services at the splendid, Alhambra-style Wellness Centre complete with reflecting pool. Otherwise, enjoy the beach, scuba diving, golf (next door at the St. Lucia Golf Resort & Country Club; no greens fees for resort guests), and other sports. Professional instruction and a personal trainer are all included in the rates. Rooms have marble floors and king-size four-poster or twin beds. The food is excellent at Cariblue (the main dining room), the Clubhouse casual buffet restaurant, the Deli, and top-of-the-line Tao. Enjoy nightly entertainment at the beachside lounge or in the Piano Bar. Special rates are available for single guests.
Fun fact: The BodyHoliday is now harvesting from its new organic garden: cucumbers, tomatoes, pumpkin, squash, melons, bananas, plantains and fresh herbs. The onsite garden reduces the distance produce travels from farm to BodyHoliday table. And will also source the resort’s ITAL restaurant (coming soon), based on the Rastafarian diet and concept that food should always be natural, pure and from the earth.
