Our founder, Lia Batkin had the pleasure of visiting BodyHoliday, an All Inclusive Fitness & Spa Resort in Saint Lucia this week. From the Tree House Spin Studio to Bums & Tums on the beach, Lia gives the inside scoop on her experience and just what you need to #JETSETPACK!
A short three day trip definitely was a great teaser to this truly amazing resort! They offer almost 30 classes a day that are complimentary to all guests plus off property activities like hiking in the rainforest, repelling through waterfalls, and whale watching. Having a wellness resort that is also all inclusive makes it easy to create your own experience….so if you want a glass of wine or pizza that’s your choice! To lay on the beach and drink rosé or workout like a mad person - that's the question.. I personally went for the heathy route, eating gluten free (#sorrygirlswholovegluten), lots of totally fresh food, and enjoying every different juice or smoothie I could get my hands on. The spa is probably one of the most extensive I have ever seen offering everything you can imagine with one treatment included daily (which makes working out for 5 hours a day totally worth it!). I cannot wait to go back for a full week or two, or maybe three… some people even go for months at a time #VacationGoals!
The BodyHoliday LeSport is a perfect combination of beach resort, luxe all-inclusive (all you can eat & drink yes, please!), and a Wellness Centre that provides a very large range of treatments with an amazing list of daily activities that can you keep you busy all day if you want. They are really known for their BodyScience programme, which starts by collecting a broad range of information about your physiology and biochemistry to identify imbalances in the body and mind that impact on wellness. BodyScience utilizes both Western science and Ayurvedic principles to gather all the data and programme options include De-stress Health, Fitness, Weight Management, Healthy Ageing, Digestive Health, Detox Health.
