The BodyHoliday in Cap Estate, Saint Lucia

Beautifully situated on its own cove on Saint Lucia's northwest coast, The BodyHoliday promises an unparalleled vacation experience in paradise. Set beneath the shadows of tall palms on 32 acres of pristine beachfront property, The BodyHoliday is an all-inclusive getaway with five star luxury accommodations, an acclaimed spa retreat, and eateries that focus on fresh, healthy, local fare. At The BodyHoliday your wellness and luxury reign supreme, and every aspect of your stay is infused with details to rejuvenate, refresh, and reconnect. Among the recent additions to the resort, you will find Eve, the stylish hair and beauty salon as well as the new Skin Clinic featuring organic non-invasive skin treatments. Wellness is more than just skin deep at this resort, with four celebrated eateries including the award-winning TAO, known for its fusion of Eastern and Western cuisine, and Cariblue Restaurant where international table d'hôte cuisine is served alongside the gentle melodies of a sophisticated jazz quartet or steel band.

Picture yourself at home in one of the resort's exquisitely designed accommodations. Rooms and suites come in many sizes, but each radiates with luxury with a first-class feeling of comfort and privacy. Soft, neutral whites and blues create an ambiance of quiet tranquility, while dark wood furnishings, local art, and indescribable waterfront views are distinctly Caribbean. All rooms boast private bathrooms, iPod docking stations, and air conditioning as a reprieve from the balmy Caribbean sun. However, with the array of activities that awaits, spending time in may be the last thing on your mind.

From the genuinely friendly and helpful staff who made you feel like a guest in their home; to the excellent food; the included daily massages; the boutique feel of the place (never felt crowded on the beach or the restaurants); and the impressive staff/customer ratio, my wife and I cannot say enough about Bodyholiday. We have been to many Caribbean resorts over the years between us, there is little doubt that this property is the gem! If anyone came to this place and had a bad time, it's on them. You would have to try very hard to find something to complain about.

This is our 3rd visit and the only place we have every returned to. Oasis - amazing as always, would have like more information about extra treatments. Food - spot on. Classes great especially body stretch with Sean and Clavy. My husband could not take his eyes of Marlene boy is she gorgeous inside and out what a lovely lady. I personally would like to see more beginners classes on Fridays for ease into beach fit, more pilates yoga, body spin for beginners. Did feel however that since our very first visit some 8 years ago standards of dress in the restaurants' and piano bar have slipped. Used to be long trousers for guys, now shorts and ripped jeans are acceptable - Big shame.

First let me say that we are Americans and we loved BodyHoliday! I was a little concerned after reading the reviews that Americans might have had more negative things to say about the resort, but you will always find some negative comments about any place. We were only able to get away for a 4-day vacation to celebrate our 20th anniversary and we wished we could have stayed longer! We took advantage of some of the activities, but we also spent some quality time on the beach. As others have said, there is a wide range in guests (age, fitness level, etc.), so you can make the vacation exactly what you want without being concerned about what others are doing or not doing. We did some snorkeling, sailing and kayaking, participated in just a couple of fitness classes and took advantage of the included spa treatments every day. I would recommend staying for a full week to be able to fully appreciate all that the resort has to offer. There were many more activities that we would have liked to have tried, including off property excursions. We had been trying to decide between staying at the BodyHoliday or its sister property Rendezvous and there is a shuttle that will take you between the two to enjoy what the other resort has to offer (we just didn’t have the time during our short stay). FOOD We were thrilled with the high quality and freshness of the food and the many options at such a small property. In searching for an all-inclusive resort for our anniversary, the quality of the food was very important to us. We have stayed at other all-inclusives where they focus on quantity over quality. At BodyHoliday you get BOTH quantity and quality. Even the gluten-free peanut butter cookies and homemade granola bars at the Deli were a treat! ROOM We stayed in an oceanfront luxury room and were lucky enough to get a first-floor room just steps from the beach (room #151). Even though it was on the first floor, it was still several feet above ground level so we could enjoy the view from our room and our balcony even when other guests were walking by. The room was a nice size and was always nice and cool and the view from our bed was breathtaking. The bathroom is a little unusual in the layout, with just a partial door to the toilet area (which might be awkward for some), but there was plenty of light and a nice little vanity area for getting ready and the shower was large. Each day we had fresh water delivered to our room refrigerator and each night a pot of tea was waiting for us when we retired for the evening. You can also order some room service items for breakfast, which we did one day, but we found that we were more anxious to get out of the room and try items on the extensive breakfast buffet, which can be enjoyed in the restaurant or at little beachside tables. BEACH The beach is beautiful with plenty of space and chairs for all of the guests. All beaches in St. Lucia are public, but BodyHoliday is tucked away in a private little cove that is difficult for anyone else to get to, making it a very peaceful beach. There are ice buckets near all of the chairs and the staff will set you up with an umbrella, towels, ice water and/or cocktails as soon as you sit down. There are even water waiters who will bring a cocktail out to guests lounging on the anchored rafts, which are a lovely place to relax. SPA The spa is such a wonderful included daily amenity! We both occasionally get massages, but we have never indulged in 4 straight days of spa treatments before. It was helpful to go on-line and book our treatments before we arrived, simply to try to reserve some time slots and plan our day around them. Once you arrive at the resort, it is easy to change what treatments you receive. We chose to schedule our treatments for late morning so we could wake up, eat breakfast, participate in a morning activity and then enjoy a spa treatment at 11am or noon, followed by lunch and afternoon on the beach. We had planned to try different types of treatments, but our massages the first day were so great that we changed our plans and just tried different types of massages each day. The spa and fitness center is an outdoor facility, with treatment and fitness rooms set up all around the perimeter of the square and a quiet pool area and beverage station (with iced tea and water) in the center. With such beautiful surroundings, it makes perfect sense to have everything outdoors. It is quite a hike up to the wellness center, but the view and spa treatments make it all worthwhile! TIPS We were very glad we took the tour of the property on our first morning there, as it helped us learn the easiest way to get around the resort, plan where we would eat dinner and plan our activities and spa treatments. There are SO many activities to choose from and our guide helped us narrow down what we might want to focus on. We booked a private sunset sail to celebrate our anniversary and that was the only big miss in our trip. The captain was very entertaining and we had a lovely butler who brought us an enormous amount of food (including sushi, egg rolls, a cheese and fruit plate, finger sandwiches, etc.), but the boat itself was a small little dinghy that was quite tossed around out on the water. The boat seemed more suitable for a water taxi ride or brief tour of the cove, rather than a “sunset sail.” It was not romantic in the least, but still a fun little adventure that we can laugh and tell stories about for years to come. Don’t miss the “coconut guy” who carves up fresh coconuts and delivers them with a straw most days near the beach. He seemed to be there most days between 11am-2pm or until he ran out of coconuts. The Friday night sunset cruise is open to all guests and was a fun evening! There are several buses that take guests to the marina where the boat is located and the boat will not leave until everyone has arrived, so don’t worry if you don’t get on one of the first buses. The boat is very large and has plenty of seating – and most guests were mingling about throughout the cruise, so finding a seat was not an issue. There were snacks and drinks on-board, followed by a fun Caribbean beach BBQ with a steel drum band for entertainment once we returned to the resort. The snorkeling right off the beach is fantastic! We knew it must be good when we saw several boats from other resorts bring their guests to the area for snorkeling and diving. You can use snorkel equipment from the water sports shack (free of charge, of course) and then just wade into the water from the beach and see many colorful types of fish and coral! There are bugs (which is to be expected), but we simply brought our own bug spray and applied before we left our room for dinner each night. The resort also has bug spray available if you do not bring your own. Don’t miss the wine tasting room! For a nominal charge (I believe it was $11/person), we had a private wine tasting experience with a resort sommelier and were able to try some wonderful wines. We chose 2 different tastings so we could share and try more wines that way. And you then get a discount on a bottle of wine at dinner that night, which was the only time we decided to upgrade our wine. On the other nights, there were enough options among the house wines that were offered that we always found something we enjoyed.

Visited here for a family birthday and reunion. I'd been to Rodney Bay hotels previously and enjoyed. This is way better. The hotel is comfortable and peaceful. It never felt crowded. It always felt safe. Room- very comfortable , beautiful view on 3rd level . The hotel is all inclusive . This includes food, non alcoholic drinks and non motorised water sports as well as massages. I am not a fan but had to have one for shoulder and back pain and it was surprisingly effective. The wellness centre is on a hill- peaceful surroundings. The beach was wonderful -white sand, no currents, and wonderful fish visible on snorkeling. Food - excellent . Several restaurants - couldn't try all. Service - good. The staff will even pick coconuts for coconut water on request. Tours can be arranged on site. My one regret was not staying longer and exploring the full extent of the very many services available. I will definitely recommend and return.

I'll start with the cons because that list is much shorter than the pros -AC gave up on our 2nd day- though we told them right away no one ever fixed it which led to some sweaty and sleepless nights -Minibar only had a bottle of water in it (which was never refilled) -Service was hit or miss- most were amazing but at this price everyone should be- perhaps this would be improved if more tipping was allowed/commonplace Now for the rundown for first timers: -The guests are mostly from the U.K. so this is what the resort caters to-- we're from the US but we loved this-- we wish all resorts served sandwiches, tea and scones in the afternoon ;) Food/drinks: so good! We did Tao twice which was our favorite (japanese-requires reservations) and Windows once (4 course menu/ requires reservations) the other nights were a-la-carte at either Cariblue or from the grill-- all very good- breakfast and lunch buffets at Cariblue also very good and plenty of healthy options - 3-4pm ice cream cart available - 4-6pm sandwiches/tea/scones available - The deli serves up amazing wraps and juices until 5pm - For your honeymoon you get one free breakfast in bed and one savory sunset platter to your room - you can get drinks from anywhere-- plenty of frozen fruity drinks for me and premium liquor for my husband - they bring around popsicles, smoothies, veggies and hummus, chips and dips, nuts-- all to your beach chair depending on the time of day -As soon as you put up your red flag indicating you wanted a drink refill they were there almost immediately which we were very impressed by and they learned your preferences very quickly -Our favorite waitress was LuAnn at Cariblue-- she was the sweetest to us and deserves a raise! Activities: -We did the Gros Piton nature walk and highly recommend it. We were the only ones on the complimentary excursion and Marlin- the BH tour guide was BEYOND amazing! He volunteered to be our personal photographer all day getting so many great candid shots and videos of us- allowing us to just have a blast. After the nature walk he gave us choices of what to do next and we ended up going to the mineral baths which were amazing and such a great experience. He paid all of our entrance fees for both places and had brought us towels which we didn't think to do. This is a tour we'd easily pay $300 for-- all for free and was definitely our most memorable day-- thank you SO MUCH Marlin- you're incredible! - The included treatments were amazing- especially after the stress of wedding planning while working 60 hour work weeks it was great to get pampered every day - The gym was a lot smaller than I was expecting being a fitness resort but there was actually never more than 3 people lifting at a time. No squat rack but one full size bar-- plenty of heavy plates and dumbbells, a smith machine and a 1 station cable machine. Definitely enough to make it work- especially if you make your vacations your deload week - We didn't do any of the classes or water sports as we just wanted to relax but you could tell everyone in them was having a blast and the offerings were above and beyond what you'd expect -The library was awesome-- tons of books to choose from of every genre, board games, pool tables and strong AC Overall we left feeling rejuvenated as promised. We visit all inclusives in the Caribbean every few months so really wanted to make sure our honeymoon stood out for us. The BH accomplished this through high caliber food, excellent beach/pool drink and snack service, the included treatments, and it's location and layout being completely beachfront. If the flight to St Lucia was the same duration as it is to Jamaica/ DR/ Mexico for us we'd probably come back every year but we'll probably still make the BH an every 5 year event.
