The Caribbean is known for its palm beaches, rum punches and all-inclusive hotels, but in St Lucia there’s a well-being resort which promises if you give them your body for a week they will give you back your mind, and if you really engage yourself in their healthy holiday promise it will happen. I spent 9 nights in St Lucia at BodyHoliday for a health and fitness break...
St. Lucia's luxurious island resort provides a personal service of spa treatments, therapies and activities based on the four pillars of exercise, good diet, restorative beauty and relaxation. The spectacular landscape of natural waterfalls and unspoilt rainforests creates a perfect island paradise - and the resort offers every pastime possible. Guests can enjoy the use of an 18-hole championship golf course, 3 swimming pools, a class studio, PADI diving, tennis courts, fitness classes and an award-winning spa. There is a range of treatments at the spa, all designed to help enhance your well-being, on top of this they cater for every taste in food and drink with three great restaurants and relaxing bars to choose between.
Programmes at BodyHoliday
This luxurious spa resort on the island of St. Lucia sits on Cariblue's crescent shaped beach, and is surrounded by acres of unspoilt rainforests and natural waterfalls. There are plenty of destinations to visit around the area, from Pigeon Island, an old pirate hideout, to Rodney Bay Marina, a premier yachting destination. St. Lucia is the perfect island paradise in the centre of the Caribbean.
A good diet is one of the four pillars of well-being at BodyHoliday and they are very specific about the products that they use. The quality of the food at the four bars and restaurants is important to them. It has to be fresh, beautifully prepared and where they can, they use locally grown produce.
This award winning restaurant is one of the finest restaurants in the Caribbean and is a unique culinary fusion of East and West.
Right at the centre of the action, the Clubhouse is the perfect place for a drink, a spot of afternoon tea, an evening meal or a night time show.
Set on the beach, this restaurant is open breakfast to dinner and uses fresh tasty ingredients for some beautiful food options.
Perfect for anything from a mid-morning coffee to a salad or sandwich, The Deli is perfect for simple, light dining.

Enjoy your favourite drink or a new cocktail whilst you let the resident pianist entertain you.

Paul’s Review of The BodyHoliday LeSport, St Lucia

My holiday at BodyHoliday exceeded all of my expectations! It was the best value for money holiday I have ever had! Health and Fitness Travel was excellent at customer service. Words can't describe how good my stay was! The classes, the treatments, the sunset cruise, the beach… everything! My honest advice is, don't hesitate to book it! Try to go for 2 weeks, you need time to relax and time to enjoy all that the resort has to offer. And also, try to travel solo!

My goodness! What an fantastic holiday! The best one I have ever had, by far. I've already recommended it to lots of people and cannot stress enough more how wonderful it was. Health and Fitness travel was great at suggesting it to me at organising it all. Great work, guys! Thank you. Best place in the world for single travellers, everything is designed to make you feel comfortable and relaxed, interacting with other fellow travellers as much as you feel like. Location is beautiful and the variety of activities is second to none. Overall, the most perfect holiday I could ever dream of!

I cannot fault anything at the BodyHoliday! The statement “Give us your body and we will give you back your mind” is very accurate! You will feel amazingly relaxed. It's paradise and you will get a break from real life. You will also gain strength to deal with real life when you return home. The classes, Spa, beach and service are all excellent. The setting is calming, both guests and staff are very friendly and you can chat with anyone. The food is healthy but still very nice and you will never be hungry. Watching the sunset in Clubhouse with a glass of Cava or Cocktail is an unforgettable experience. It’s my third time booking with Health and Fitness Travel and the extra resort credit and sunset cruise are such a great addition. Thank you so much

It was the perfect holiday for me! The selection of activities is fantastic. All very organized, warm and the staff is so welcoming, the treatments were tailored to my specific needs and the staff knowledge helped to guide me as to the appropriate treatments that would further be helpful to me. With regards to my fitness goals, I was able to test my limits with the support of the fitness team. They were great! My favourite things were the dance classes and the evening activities. I really appreciated the US $250 credit from Health and Fitness Travel - it helped with the extra treatments that I needed for my muscles. If you are travelling solo, it’s the best place to be. Staff made sure I was comfortable and it was great to be able to share a table with other guests who were also friendly. It really was the perfect holiday, the perfect balance of physical activities and relaxation!

This is a great hotel to stay in. It has everything you could ever need in one place. Lots to do if you it's your thing or just relax by the pool or on the beach. Fantastic friendly staff who cannot do enough for you. Rooms are large clean and inviting. We had a luxury ocean view room but expect that all rooms are of a high standard. No TVs in the bedrooms but we were provided with an iPad. Food and choice of food and restaurants excellent, you will not be disappointed. Highly recommend that if you plan on visiting St Lucia that you stay at the body holiday. I do hope to be back in the future.

We have just returned from our first visit to The Body Holiday hotel and had a fabulous holiday. The resort is very private with superb amenities. Spotlessly clean, well equipped and all the activities offered were all first class, with excellent coaches and instructors. The food was faultless and the spa outstanding. This hotel offers so much but one thing it truly excels at is the service by the staff - the staff are the most polite, hardworking, accommodating and friendly we have ever come across. We had such a wonderful holiday we are already looking to book to go again in the spring!
