Tucked away in a secluded private cove, BodyHoliday sits on its own private white-sand beach surrounded by a thick veil of rainforest, on the north west coast of Saint Lucia. The world-renowned wellness resort offers a range of remedies: from body-strengthening and mind-settling to unwinding, sunbathing and food- and wine- indulging — or a combination of all of the above.

For guests looking for a spot to recharge, this is the perfect outlet. There are countless ways to feel energised, from sailing and windsurfing to kayaking and scuba diving at some of the world’s most spectacular sites. On land, there’s the chance to play tennis or golf, try archery or fencing, or practise yoga or Pilates. For outdoorsy types there’s hiking through rainforest, biking the coastline or abseiling down a river gorge. Personal trainers are on hand, while instructors and sports pros can help guests improve their game or start from scratch.

When it comes to winding down, there’s the Wellness Centre. This Moorish-inspired haven is manned by a team of skilled therapists and beauty specialists, who offer a wide list of treatments — from Swedish and Balinese massage, body wraps and scrubs to facials and ayurvedic treatments. Many draw upon island ingredients; for example, the fiery lime and ginger body scrub, an aloe yoghurt body wrap and thalassotherapy — a pore-cleansing treatment incorporating the therapeutic properties of seawater.

Another option is BodyScience, offering an in-depth, bespoke approach to wellbeing. Personalised programmes combine the latest science and ancient Eastern practices to assess a guest’s needs and the most beneficial dietary, exercise and treatment plans for long-term wellness. Options include fitness, weight-management, healthy ageing and digestive health.

Catering to individual tastes is an underlying theme at BodyHoliday, where guests are encouraged to pick their perfect experience. What’s more, the promise of follow-up contact after guests leave means there’s a great chance of continuing a healthier lifestyle long after the plane touches down at home.
