Sun, Spa and Salutations: Body Holiday St. Lucia Resort

If the dark, long days of winter chill are getting you down, maybe it’s time for a tune-up, or even better, a complete re-haul.

Lucky for you, the Caribbean resort Body Holiday offers just that. It’s a great place to recharge, get fit, and combine pampering, sun and fun. Committed to health and wellness, Body Holiday has many attractions. They include themed yoga months, organic food, an exclusive Wine Salon, and more. Body Holiday also includes upscale resort amenities and incredible spa treatments, accompanied by an attentive staff.

Part retreat, part all-inclusive resort, the Body Holiday extends out on a secluded pristine beach in northwest St. Lucia, surrounded by 42 acres of lush tropical gardens. They promise that if you give them your body, they “will give you back their mind,” and it’s not just wishful thinking. This year, the resort ranked among Conde Nast’s 40 best Caribbean resorts. And, with a multi-million dollar renovation in process, things are getting even better.

With their menu of breakthrough treatments, they combine futuristic science and ancient eastern secrets designed to rejuvenate and revitalize.

SPA

One of Body Holiday’s biggest attractions is its Wellness Center, or spa. With their menu of breakthrough treatments, they combine futuristic science and ancient eastern secrets designed to rejuvenate and revitalize. Not to mention the treatment includes a long list of pampering indulgences.

Also included in your stay is a daily 50-minute spa treatment. You can choose from an assortment of options: Aromatherapy, The Lucian Lime and Ginger Scrub, a relaxing full body massage, Aloe Yogurt Body Wrap. Exclusive Ayurvedic Indian treatments are also popular.

If you’re interested in anti-aging treatments, you can choose from Elemis, Thalago, or lifting and collagen treatments, endorsed by a leading London dermatologist.

Body Holiday’s unique and futuristic spa combines cutting edge technologies used in DNA testing with an Eastern approach to nutrition and well-being. Based on your DNA samples, health and fitness tests, and body type assesments, an Ayurvedic doctor will designs your nutrition and health plan. There’s nothing else like it.

Popular activities here include watersports, pilates, tai chi, scuba diving and golf.

ACTIVITIES AND AMENITIES

“People visit The Body Holiday for its focus on wellness, health and fitness,” says Armin Asceric, the Brand & Marketing Manager at Sunswept Resorts. Popular activities here include watersports, pilates, tai chi, scuba diving and golf. If you leave the resort, the island’s mountainous terrain is great for hiking. The Tree House Spin Studio offers a daily menu of yoga and spinning classes.

Guests have a choice of several excellent restaurants, including a popular dining spot on the beach, Cariblue. After the renovation is completed, the Garden House Restaurant will offer a great menu featuring dishes made of raw, fresh organic food seasoned with local herbs grown on the resort’s farm. They also serve an excellent Soursop Sorbet on Red Wine French Toast, a desert prepared from an exotic indigenous fruit.

Other attractions include live weekly jazz music. Their sophisticated Wine Salon has a schedule of tastings and educational lectures (at no extra cost).

WHEN TO COME

A unique feature is the resort’s well-designed themed months.

  •  Yoga Month, in October, features yoga activities designed to accommodate all guests from beginners to more advanced yogis.
  • Solo Travelers Month, in September, offers special rates for solo travelers. It’s also a great option for singles uncomfortable traveling alone looking to connect with like-minded pilgrims;
  • December’s Pre-Christmas Restorative Break is designed to help guests withstand holiday indulgences and put you in optimum shape for years to come.

The resort is most popular from winter to early spring (December – May). Though St. Lucia is off the hurricane path, the hurricane season from late summer to December brings rough weather patches, storms, and lots of rainfall to the island.

So picture yourself watching the vibrant sunrise while listening to the murmuring Caribbean sea, hiking in the mountains, and following scientifically- designed beauty and nutrition regimens at Body Holiday.

MORE TO COME

Body Holiday opened in 1988 when St. Lucia was a relatively unknown and undeveloped island. It’s blossomed, along with the island, into a sophisticated, alluring, highly rated resort.

The resort is currently undergoing a $20 million renovation. New additions include an organic restaurant and a new spa, Thalasso on the Rocks, with yoga decks that overlook the Caribbean, therapy sea baths, and an underground sea salt grotto.

So picture yourself watching the vibrant sunrise while listening to the murmuring Caribbean sea, hiking in the mountains, and following scientifically- designed beauty and nutrition regimens at Body Holiday.
