The BodyHoliday in St. Lucia is a cut above the usual all-inclusive, offering unparalleled service, cuisine and amenities. In 2011, the resort underwent a $20-million upgrade. Tao, a restaurant here, was voted by Conde Nast as one of the top 60 tables in the world. The hotel’s basic four pillars of comfort are relaxation, restorative beauty, exercise, and good diet. All sorts of activities are included, revolving around a fitness theme, including lessons in golf, scuba and tennis. The resort is set on a private cove on the island’s northwest side, on Cariblue’s crescent beach, surrounded by 42 acres of gardens.

The resort calls its rooms “your holiday sanctuary,” each with all the usual amenities but more upscale given the nature of the place.

Categories are single garden-view, luxury, luxury ocean-view, premier ocean view, deluxe ocean front, grand luxury ocean front junior suite, and grand luxury ocean front suite.
All-Inclusive The BodyHoliday Restaurants and Bars
The restaurants here are Tao, the main restaurant, for dinners; The Clubhouse, for dinner and shows, and drinks and tea; Cariblue, for all meals; The Deli, for snacks; and the Piano Bar for lounging.
All-Inclusive The BodyHoliday Activities
The activities here are more than you usually get at an all-inclusive resort, including water skiing, wake boarding, Hobie cats, windsurfing and tubing, in addition to daily classes in pilates, fitness, yoga, tai chi, tennis and scuba diving. There are also hiking adventures included, and free golf lessons. More is available, such as spa treatments, for extra cost.
