Situated in the Caribbean on the north-western tip of St Lucia, The BodyHoliday LeSport is perched on a pristine crescent shoreline, ensconced by gardens with lush foliage. This paradise of palms swaying in the gentle breeze is just a 30-minute drive from the capital, Castries, and its airport, and only 90 minutes from Hewanorra International Airport.
Wellness has long been BodyHoliday’s mantra – and that’s why daily treatments are included in the price. Elemis facials, hydrotherapy and Swedish massages are all part of a programme to keep you looking and feeling your best. Fifty therapists staff the 33 treatment rooms, and specialist extra sessions are on offer too – from algae wraps to osteopathy and Hawaiian lomi lomi to increase flexibility and lymphatic circulation.
Step up to the tee at Coubaril Valley Golf Academy and let the PGA instructors get the best from your game. Ideal for novices and keen golfers alike, the tuition here is second to none, and you can hone your skills on the four practice holes, driving range and putting green. One-to-one coaching and groups are welcomed in equal measure.
Choose between a garden view or classic Caribbean vista and enjoy the tranquility offered by the large bay windows and patios or terraces. Hardwood furniture and calming shades of blue, cream and white adorn the interiors, and you can expect special touches like Bluetooth sound systems, REN toiletries and LED-light mirrors. Luxury rooms have four-posters and mahogany desks, while the suites come with extras like a wet bar or hammam.
Those with a sense of adventure will truly enjoy a stay here, be that trekking up the island’s iconic Pitons, or holding onto a Hobie Cat as the little boat skips over the waves. Scuba lessons and much more are part of the all-inclusive package. The likes of tennis, tai chi and pilates cater for a range of tastes and skill levels, while the Adventure Programme is for those who seek a few thrills as they tour the island.
Using produce fresh from the bountiful garden, the chefs at Cariblue Windows restaurant – named for its fabulous sea views – present a gourmet tasting menu with matching wines. Over at TAO, it’s East meets West, as a parade of fusion dishes are served up on the elegant terrace with a backdrop of a starry sky. If it’s beachside snacks you’re after then you’ll be well sustained with the Mediterranean mezze, sandwiches and juices at The Deli.
