    Our opinion

    The BodyHoliday is a world-leading wellness centre set in an all Inclusive resort of the highest quality for a complete rejuvenation of both body and soul.

    Hotel description

    Situated on north-western tip of Saint Lucia, in the crescent shaped bay of Cariblue, the spacious grounds of The BodyHoliday offer a unique revitalising experience.

    The richly-appointed Centre for Health and Wellbeing is a haven of peace positioned on the hillside affording dramatic views of the coastline. Designed to resemble a Moorish temple with archways, pillars and secluded courtyards set around the central pool, the Wellness Centre induces a sense of calm even before the treatments begin. The treatment menu is composed of a range of Elemis remedies and some spiritualistic treats like meditation, yoga and stress management classes to provide complete relaxation for the mind. After the rejuvenating daily spa treatment included with your stay, there is a host of sports pursuits available, offering a complete restoration for both mind and body.

    Specialist sports instructors are on hand to offer lessons in your chosen activity, from fencing to archery, or windsurfing to scuba diving. An ideal base for the lone traveller, the list of activities is endless. Many people travel to the resort alone and the hotel is well equipped to offer as much or as little company as you desire. The reasonably priced single garden view rooms have done away with the need for single occupancy supplements and still offer the same high quality accommodation that The BodyHoliday is known for. The property has just been renovated to a very high standard. Single travellers are also welcomed at dinner with the option of enjoying their own company, or joining other like-minded people on one of the communal tables.

    There are four dining options at the hotel and the range and quality of the cuisine is far superior to normal All Inclusive standards. Healthy options are on offer next to more indulgent treats. The main dining room is Cariblue, set in the open air overlooking the beach. A buffet is served for breakfast , lunch and dinner and changes on a daily basis. The critically acclaimed TAO restaurant offers gourmet Fusion cuisine in stylish, Oriental-style surroundings. Situated on a second floor balcony with views over the bay, this is the ultimate venue for a romantic meal. If you prefer a more relaxed dining option, the Clubhouse grill offers casual dining and serves fresh meats and fish straight from the grill, accompanied by vegetables or a substantial salad. Alternatively, the beachside Deli is open during the day for snacks and fruit smoothies. A visit to The BodyHoliday is about choice and doing as much or as little you like. Ranked highly in the Condé Nast Readers’ Spa Awards, The BodyHoliday offers a luxurious holiday experience for both active couples and singles.
