Wellness Escapes on Saint Lucia

During the pandemic, I wrote this blog post called "Lush Saint Lucia Escapes," and it's a great piece to reference, especially for first timers looking for a lay of the land. Writing that article made me move Saint Lucia to the top of my Caribbean islands wish list, and now I'm finally heading there! (The island fared well through Hurricane Beryl, which hit south of St. Lucia.)


This week I've been invited by Sunswept Resorts to experience two luxury, boutique, all-inclusive wellness resorts called Stolen Time (adults only) and BodyHoliday, a Virtuoso property with a long list of included amenities for my clients - in addition to the daily spa treatment included in everyone's stay.


They both have exciting activities each day, sort of like an adult summer camp on the beach! I'm looking forward to this hosted stay very much because my idea of a wellness trip is enjoying a mix of physical activities, therapeutic massage, plus authentic and educational experiences to understand the local culture. The itinerary being assembled for our small group of six hand-selected travel advisors balances all this beautifully!


I'll describe my experiences at both places next week while I'm there, and in the meantime, I'd love to hear how you'd describe your ideal wellness holiday!

Create your own definition of island time on a Caribbean retreat. For some, a wellness vacation is all boot camps and egg-white frittatas; for others, it’s the beach club and a good book. The lush island nation champions the laid-back lifestyle the Caribbean is known for, but myriad pursuits can also keep active-minded travelers happy: Explore rain-forest-covered interiors, visit a cocoa plantation, or scuba dive off the coast. Saint Lucia’s twin Piton peaks – the destination’s most significant physical features – are a can’t-miss.


Work Out


Travelers sprint to the all-inclusive, 155-room BodyHoliday Saint Lucia on the northwest coast for wellness retreats customized with the help of an on-site Ayurvedic doctor. Pack your program with as much as you’d like: scuba diving, spin classes, sailing, organic-cooking lessons, and even an island quadrathlon. A recent multimillion-dollar renovation refreshed guest rooms and added a new sushi bar and a revamped spa.


Hardly Move


You’ll find prime soak-up-the-sun real estate at Sugar Beach, a Viceroy Resort, set smack-dab between the velvety-green Pitons. Peak views come with all of the 96 whitewashed rooms and villas, and private plunge pools and walled gardens create a sense of complete seclusion. Leave your cozy confines for a coconut-milk massage in one of the Rainforest Spa’s tree-house treatment rooms, then nab a thatch-covered lounger by the water.
