A good Diet is one of the four pillars upon which the BodyHoliday is built. Exercise, Restorative Beauty and Relaxation are the other three. This holistic approach to well-being and a healthy lifestyle, combined with a devotion to the pleasures of a fun ﬁlled beach holiday, is what the BodyHoliday is all about. These four pillars combine to make a perfectly balanced and restorative holiday experience that will leave you feeling rejuvenated, relaxed and ready to face the challenges of your daily life with renewed vigour.
Our chefs, mixologists, and sommeliers ensure you savour every culinary experience in an all-inclusive resort with six restaurants.
If you have any special needs in your diet, then make sure you discuss this with the BodyHoliday specialists in your webroom before you come.
Food is your body’s fuel, but it is also your body’s pleasure. At the BodyHoliday in Saint Lucia, we have always aimed for the 5-star culinary excellence of a ﬁrst class resort, BUT we see no discrepancy between eating well and eating healthily. This duality is what we believe our guests love. Although we have the skills and services of a world-class wellness centre, we are not a fat farm, and our motto has always been to combine eating well with a little indulgence.

CUSTOM DIETS & AYURVEDIC CUISINE
The culinary team is experienced in handling requests for gluten-free, celiac, diabetic, low carb and low-fat choices.
If you wish to have a fully customised diet during your stay, we can arrange a consultation with our resident nutritionist over the phone before your arrival. Our Nutritionist will then work with our chefs to create your customised meal plan. A customized diet is ideal if you want to lose weight, build muscle mass, or have any special dietary requirements such as food intolerances or severe food allergies. This is a supplementary service, and the cost depends on your length of stay. If you are interested, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our BodyHoliday Specialist for more information. This is something ideally arranged through your webroom.
Every restaurant has a Vegan Menu available.
“Pavitra” at BodyHoliday, is possibly one of the only genuine Ayurvedic temples in the Americas. Here, Ayurvedic healing therapies are given. Ayurveda is a lifestyle, however, and along with the treatments and Yoga, an approach to and philosophy of healthy eating is necessary.
Ayurveda, an ancient Indian philosophy of living wisely and a sister science to yoga, teaches that food is essential to physical health and well-being. At the BodyHoliday, Ayurvedic cuisine is served as part of our culinary offerings and is indicated on our menus. The Ayurvedic approach to cooking is based on various healing principles, including the three Doshas of the body, the five elements and six tastes, and the optimal time for eating. Ayurvedic teachings focus on the needs of each individual to improve digestive health and bring balance to body, mind and spirit.
You can learn all about what this means when you are here; if you are interested, just let us know.
