Tell us about the resort – what makes The BodyHoliday special?

The BodyHoliday is a luxury all-inclusive wellness holiday located on the tropical island of St Lucia.

From Australia it’s a long way, however we suggest breaking up the trip with some time in the US or other nearby islands and stay there for at least a week. There are direct flights from the UK and for that reason you’ll find that most of the other guests are British with a mix of guests from Canada and the US as well.

It causes the body to reprioritise what’s important, such as blood flow and heart rate, which can lead to a decrease in libido—a state of being that feeds into the cycle of anxiety.
