My friend and I came for a week at the Body Holiday Oct 31-Nov 7 2019. The ocean front room had a nice balcony where we could sit and enjoy the waves and view of the beach. The room was very comfortable, with plenty of closet space, and a nice very large bathroom with two sinks, shower stall with rain shower and body jets options, and a separate toilet closet. The hotel is officially an hour and a half from the airport (due to geography, almost all hotels on St Lucia are on the opposite side of the island from the airport), but with traffic it can take two or more hours. If you like seeing scenery through mountains and rainforest with hairpin roads, it’s a fun drive 9most taxis are comfortable minivans). The range and quality of activities available far exceeded my expectations. The fitness activities are not your typical resort animation team activities; these are real fitness professionals and the difference in quality is evident. Choices of activities run from 7am right through to 5pm; Tai Chi, several varieties of Yoga, Pilates, spinning, various dance classes (Salsa, Caribbean DanceFit, Merengue), beach boot camp, body tone, body stretch, aqua fit, walks, cycling, barre, (the list goes on….) . There are even options to try a golf lesson, sailing lesson, archery, water skiing and more, all included for no extra charge. The spa services were also top quality. Having a spa service included for every day of the stay, it really makes for great value for what you are getting. Massage, facial and body scrub were all excellent quality. There are a wide range of additional spa and Ayurvedic treatments available as well. You get a good workout just climbing the stairs up the hill to the spa as well. There was plenty of variety of good food, with options that would satisfy a wide range of dietary needs. Meat eaters, vegetarians, no sugar, gluten free, juice fasters, and low carb eaters would all find something delicious to eat. The bar will even make you a no-sugar mojito if you want to enjoy a drink but stick to a program. There was a good selection of wines with dinner (decent house wines included, or choose something special from the wine cellar). As wonderful as the resort is to stay at all day long, I do recommend taking at least one day to explore the island of St Lucia. We booked a taxi privately for the whole day for $180 (it’s a minivan, so cost could be split with as many as 6 people, making it really good value). The views of St Lucia are spectacular and booking a private taxi allowed us to take as much or as little time at each stop as we wanted. The volcanic mud baths, views of the Pitons, overlooking the villages in the bays, and a stop in Castries and Rodney Bay for a little shopping make for a great day out and about. The Body Holiday offers something for those who like to be active as well as those who are serious about relaxation. Overall this was an exceptional vacation and I’m already considering a return visit Read less

Just been back to the Body Holiday again. When I went it was with slight trepidation as some of the review since I last visited suggested it was slipping somewhat. How wrong they were. Other than running out of fudge on one day (did me a favour with my sugar intake), everything has actualy improved. The recent refurb that had a few loose ends this time last year, has been improved, the food has got even better, the staff and service remain brilliant. The treatments have improved and are consistently good and uniform between the masseuse. Will be going back, again and again Read less
