BodyHoliday Saint Lucia
A Caribbean Getaway for your Body and Mind
October 4-7, 2017 | October 12-15, 2017
Global Wellness Summit
Set on a secluded cove of white sand beach at the edge of the Caribbean Sea, surrounded by tropical gardens and rainforest, BodyHoliday Saint Lucia is the ultimate getaway for body and mind. Recognized as one of the finest wellness resorts/destinations spas and center of well-being, there couldn’t be a more idyllic corner of the world to escape to. But what makes this vacation truly idyllic is it’s designed by you.
Here, you are encouraged to do as much or as little as you like. At this all-inclusive luxury resort dedicated to well-being, there are any number of ways to soothe the senses and restore the spirit. Based on a philosophy of relaxation, restorative beauty, exercise and diet, BodyHoliday offers every possibility. The renowned Wellness Centre, voted one of the world’s best spas by Condé Nast Traveler, caters to every need with an indulgent array of time-honored body treatments as well as state-of-the-art therapies, while BodyHoliday’s five-star restaurants satisfy every taste with menus that feature locally-sourced foods and ingredients fresh from the resort’s own organic garden.
Then, there is the endless list of activities on land and sea – yoga sessions and fitness classes, scuba diving, sailing, tennis and golf to more exotic adventures including biking the coastline, hiking the mountains or abseiling a river gorge. However you design it, BodyHoliday can be a hive of activity or a haven of peace and serenity.
This morning you’ll make your way to the Miami International Airport (approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes) for the flight to the Hewanorra International Airport, St. Lucia’s main airport. St. Lucia is accessible via American Airlines non- stop. The flying time is approximately three and half hours which will be worth it when you see the shimmering crystal blue waters of the Caribbean.
Welcome to BodyHoliday!
The guest rooms are an important part of the BodyHoliday experience. Restful, rejuvenating, pampering – from their sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea and tropical gardens to the smallest details. Each is designed as a private sanctuary, and all offer special touches, including a Pillow Menu, REN bath and beauty products, Tablet Directories for guest services, and Wi-Fi, as well as Organic Tea and Cookie turn-down at bedtime.
Your room at BodyHoliday will have views or partial views of the Caribbean Sea, depending on the room type that you select. Your room is your haven whilst you stay with us and although we have tried to think of everything, the housekeeping team are always on hand to provide additional customized requests. Your in-room tablet is a mine of information and can also be used to schedule additional spa treatments and activities.

Tonight you may select from one of four restaurants in which to dine. From homemade pizzas, freshly baked in the Pavilion Grill’s clay oven to a delicious tasting menu in Windows, your body’s in for a treat.
Finish the evening at The Piano Bar. With its hint at bygone elegance and a mix of the sea suggested in its décor, the Piano Bar is the BodyHoliday’s refined yet relaxed nightspot. Whether for wine or cocktails, pre- or post-dinner, guests here are entertained by our resident pianist. Requests are encouraged. As is singing along or taking a turn at the baby grand. A Martini made from our own organic infusions is a must.
