Second time at the Bodyholiday... was worried that it wouldn’t match up to my first visit 4 years ago, but it was even better. Met some lovely people - think solo travel not a singles holiday. Facilities great, Tao restaurant worth booking more Than once. Because I’m a pig I sometimes ordered more than one starter or main from the a la Carte menu in cariblue or Tao and they didn’t judge... activities and treatments as good as everyone says. Lovely to meet robin Windsor and the guest bodyguard Kyran Bracken (and his brother) - who were very encouraging to the fit and unfit alike. Just need nicer fruit at breakfast - the tiniest improvement needed! Read less

I have visited the body holiday 6 times now. This time I went a stand out staff member for me was Samson who works in the spa department. Samson is so friendly, and knowledgeable on skin care especially. He gave me the most wonderful facial, which definitely improved the appearance of my skin. I had never had a facial like that before. I can’t remember the name but it is great if you have problematic skin. Samson went through the products and typed up what order I should use them, how many times a week. Since then I have been using them and my skin looks and feels much better! He is so lovely and was a joy to meet him. Samson is so passionate about what he does and I recommend anyone who stays to book an additional treatment with him. Secondly he styled my hair a number of times. Every time it looked and felt so much healthier. Samson was a joy to talk to and should be very highly thought of at the Body holiday. Read less

The Body Holiday was absolutely amazing ! The oceanfront room was more than spectacular. We used the huge tub almost every night. The staff from when we got out of the taxi until the time we left were more than accommodating. Everyone was extremely friendly and personable . The beach staff will make you feel like you are truly on vacation and won’t even let you put up the umbrella ! The spa ... words can’t even explain! That’s worth the trip in itself . Food was impeccable! Something new each day from gluten free diets to cinnamon rolls! We will definitely be going back with our friends ! No negative comments whatsoever! You guys were the best!

After looking for a place to go for solo travel I decided to give Body Holiday a go! After getting there a bit late on the first night I started my first day with the walk and met some great people and from there it was good fun all around. The food was tasty (but tiny), assortment of activities was amazing (walks, yoga, aqua fit), spa services were relaxing (especially Payton and Lucy), and rooms were just what you needed to be comfortable. Also, I had the pleasure of being there with guest bodyguard Kyran Bracken who taught beach fit every morning. He made each day fun and interesting and inspired everyone to do there best. His talk was also super motivating! He was a great add to a strong staff. Thanks Body Holiday! Read less
