Everyone comes to the Caribbean for the weather, some come for adventure and excitement, but most come for relaxation and wellbeing. After a spa holiday in St Lucia, your feelings of health and wellness will last long after you leave the island. A truly refreshing and memorable experience awaits in this island with its breathtaking tropical scenery, beautiful beaches, luxury accommodation and qualified wellness experts.
The BodyHoliday in Cap Estate is the holistic health solution if you are looking for rejuvenation and relaxation from your holiday.
You can select a personal program, depending on your therapeutic needs while you are in St Lucia. Examples of programs on offer include healthy aging, stress buster, detox and rejuvenate, weight loss and smoking cessation, as well as an all-around health package.

There are also yoga, Pilates and tai chi classes to participate in, and private tuition is available if you prefer to learn by yourself.
Other treatments on offer include hot stone experiences for the face and body, a range of exotic wraps, the coconut milk wrap being a popular choice, body sculpting and hopi ear candles.
