Okay this may be a bit of an odd one on a ‘Family Holiday’ blog/vlog site as kids (under 16) are not permitted at the resort (Though the age drops down to 12 and over during summer, Easter & Christmas)- but this place was SO amazing that we had to mention it. Plus I think it’s always great to take a break from the kids once in a while and have some couple time. It gives you a chance to rediscover yourselves and also makes you better parents as you always get back home fully recharged and crazily missing your kids!
We went to The Body Holiday for “work”. We were shooting a competition for Daybreak on ITV. And though the shooting schedule was pretty full on, it’s always going to be incredible and relaxing if your office is a 5 star resort and beach in St. Lucia! It’s such a gorgeous place to be.
Trey can only sit on a lounger reading a book for so long so this place is just perfect because EVERYTHING is included in the price. Usually when you’re at a beach resort and think ‘Hmmmm… I fancy trying a bit of sailing (or some tennis, or windsurfing, or diving or ANYTHING)’ – you end up NOT doing it as it’s usually some outrageous fee for 15 minutes of fun. At The Body Holiday you can do whatever takes your fancy … and there’s such an incredible amount to do!
On the flip side, if you’re more into chilling and being pampered, there’s that too. There’s a massive and luscious spa area where they do every treatment under the sun (sometimes literally!). To top it off, each guest gets a treatment a day for their whole stay!
The times we’ve been to ‘all inclusive’ resorts it usually meant sub par restaurants, buffets and bars as well as not really being all inclusive. Not having wine or beer sir? Extra supplement. Cocktail at the bar sir? Extra supplement. Cappuccino instead of black coffee sir? Extra supplement. Dining at the ‘posh’ restaurant sir? Extra supplement!! Not at The Body Holiday. All inclusive covers everything. No matter what you want or when you want it. All the food and drink is top notch plus they also have incredibly healthy (still yummy!) food options, drinks and smoothies!
We’ll definitely be heading back there one day for full on NON working holiday!
