Expertly fusing the luxuries of a Caribbean beach holiday with that of a wellness retreat, BodyHoliday has certainly earned its place as one of the most popular resorts in the Caribbean. Tucked away on the upmarket Cap Estate in the north of Saint Lucia, arriving here is to leave the stresses and strains of everyday life firmly behind.
Make time for the 12 complimentary spa treatments included in your stay. For the rest of your days here you can do as much or as little as you like. The experience is designed to offer every means possible to enhance your sense of wellbeing; be it the fresh and delicious food, plentiful activities, relaxation classes or spa treatments. Of course, lying back on the gorgeous white sand beach with a good book is always an appealing option.
