The Body Holiday in St Lucia is very special and somewhere I almost felt I should keep secret as I didn’t want to “share” my discovery. However, that would be unfair to the staff and management who work tirelessly to make this gem in the Caribbean a truly enjoyable and relaxing experience.

I’m not really into “all inclusive holidays” but this one is a just that extra bit special. Marketed for years under the catch phrase “Give us your body and we’ll give you back your mind” this place certainly lives up to and I believe exceeds its expectations. There are a whole host of inclusive daily treatments – massages, wraps and things I’d never even heard of which make it a truly amazing place indeed – and give you something special to look forward to every day.

Added to that a plethora of fitness activities from sailing to pilates to tennis, golf, scuba, snorkelling and lots more. There is first class training for each of the sports and if you don’t get something first time the staff are patient enough to really help you and encourage you until you do.

Fabulous food in a variety of restaurants, decent inclusive wine (as well as an extensive à la carte wine list), wonderful cocktails, smoothies and drinks and friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming staff and an idyllic location and you get my drift. Apparently 85% of guests return to the resort – and I think I’ll be joining them.

The staff
 are knowledgeable, friendly, welcoming and always greet you with a sunny smile. They really make the resort this friendly, welcoming idyll. The activities start at dawn and end at dusk – but you are free to enjoy as many or as few as you like. No pressure. The Spa is tranquil and heavenly and a great place to relax.

The water sports and activities team run amazing classes and are helpful and attentive.

The beach and gardens are well tended and beautiful. Nice touches like the hammock and cabanas complete the look and there are palm trees and flowers everywhere.

The restaurants and cater for every taste. The Cariblue offers an extensive choice of at least four main and four first courses. TAO is an east west fusion restaurant and is described as fine dining. The Clubhouse overlooks the sea and has a selection of buffets most nights and Windows offers a tasting menu on a variety of themes. The deli offers healthy smoothies, salads and wraps and true to the “wellbeing” aspects the the beach restaurant which offers an excellent buffet. Oh and I mustn’t forget to mention the generous breakfast buffet which is wonderful and something you look forward to – especially if you do the daily guided 7am power walk around the coastal headlands.

The rooms are being upgraded for 2016 and last year were comfortable, clean and spacious but not really the star attraction. In fact with so many activities to indulge in, you rarely spend much time in them. Many of them have great views over the beach and sea, and the key point is that they are clean and functional and the beds are extremely comfortable. When we stayed there were no TVs in the rooms – but the Library is equipped with a large screen if you need one!

There are a number of different bands playing every night until 11 and there is also a piano bar but the entertainment is discreet and doesn’t overwhelm the hotel.

When we left we took the option of a helicopter transfer for a supplementary cost and got an amazing view of the island and the “Pitons” as we flew to the main airport.
