BodyHoliday is one of the only hotels in the world to include daily spa treatments and a comprehensive fitness and activities schedule within the price.

For each full day of your stay you can enjoy a complimentary 50-minute spa treatment in the award-winning wellness centre. The choice of 12-inclusive treatments range from a soothing aloe yoghurt body wrap to a hydrating and protecting Thalgo oxygen facial through to the revitalising Saint Lucian Sizzler full-body massage.

If you like to be active, BodyHoliday includes everything from archery to yoga, spinning, Zumba, Tai Chi and everything in between. If you want to learn a new skill, group tuition is included in tennis, golf, water sports (including motorised) and Scuba. World-leading Olympic Gold and Silver medallists host workshops throughout the year so you may even get a chance to enjoy “Beach Fit” with an Olympic athlete.

What’s really refreshing about BodyHoliday is that with such a comprehensive activity schedule there is no need to book in; you are encouraged to do as much or as little as you like. There will be no-one disturbing you to summon you to beach volleyball or sailing, you are welcome to dip in and out and set your own agenda. If you want to simply observe and chill in a beach cabana with your Kindle, a Champagne cocktail and a chocolate brownie, then that is wellness too.

Dining at BodyHoliday is varied and enjoyable. Whether you want a smoothie or speciality coffee at the beachfront Deli, a freshly baked pizza on the sand or tasting menus with wine-pairing, you can be sure that you will have a fabulous meal that is well cooked and made with fresh ingredients. The five superb restaurants offer a la carte options and relaxed buffet style cuisine for casual dining. You must try the East/West fusion restaurant TAO, voted by Condé Nast Traveler as one of the “Top 60 Tables of the World”. The refined and relaxed Piano Bar is open from 7pm and doesn’t close until the last guest leaves. Here you will be entertained by the resident pianist and it has been known for guests to sing along or take a turn at the baby grand themselves. A Martini made from BodyHoliday’s own organic infusions is a must.
