TheBodyHoliday in St. Lucia (Caribbean) is a wellness resort offering a great variety of sport activities, healthy food and daily spa treatments, all-inclusive. A week of exercises gives you a new boost for the year.
What I liked the most?
TheBodyHoliday has absolutely great sport programme. It is one of the bests I know offering an enormous variety of activities every day. The list includes Fitness Classes, Personal Training, Water Sports, Scuba, Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi, Tennis, Archery, Golf… you name it! And the classes varies from beginners to more advanced, there are definitively something for everyone. You can plan your own day, choose your programme and go which ever classes you want. After a week you clearly notice the difference.
What needs improvement?
The place has over 30 year’s history and you can see it. The facilities are a bit outdated, so some renovation would give this place a new glory. I would also recreate the restaurant menus.

The restaurant TAO is definitively the best one in this resort. It is known for its fusion of Eastern and Western cuisine and has the most stylish atmosphere. The table reservation is needed as the place gets very busy in the evening.
How to get there:
The resort is located in St. Lucia, a beautiful Caribbean island, about a half an hour drive from the capital Castries and one and a half hour drive from the airport. Many airlines have daily flights to St. Lucia Hewanorra International airport. We took American Airlines flights from Miami to St. Lucia and then a helicopter from the airport to the resort.
Best time to be there:
We stayed there in April. The weather was sunny and lovely warm, not at all too hot. The spring holiday will give you a good start for the year!
