St. Lucia-based health and fitness-themed resort The Body Holiday has launched a $20 million renovation featuring upgrades and additions to accommodations and public rooms, plus new services and amenities. The renovations are expected to be complete in late 2015.
The all-inclusive resort’s revamping will include renovations to 52 guest rooms and the Wellness Center, plus new dining options and an enhanced sailing program. The resort will also add Thalasso on the Rocks, a spa facility featuring treatments offered in over-the-water rooms above the Caribbean Sea and salt steam sessions in an underground grotto.
The Body Holiday's 52 guest rooms will all receive noise-cancellation walls, optional dim lighting, and built-in Bluetooth sound systems featuring calming music. Rooms will also be equipped with new furniture and decor featuring driftwood and turquoise accents.
All accommodations will receive revamped, high-speed Wi-Fi, electronic mirrors featuring LED lights, and round, freestanding soaking tubs. Ground-floor oceanfront rooms and junior suites will also have room patios extended with eight-foot balconies, providing instant beach access. All guests will receive tablets offering quick access to hotel services.
The over-water Thalasso on the Rocks will include a spa treatment room for two, a yoga deck overlooking the Caribbean Sea, a lounge area and dining cabana, and an underground sea salt grotto offering a variety of salt-themed treatments. Guests will be able to rent the facility for private use; the salt steam experience will be available for all guests to use at their leisure.
The resort’s Wellness Center will receive a facelift including renovations to all 33 treatment rooms. The facility’s public spaces will be re-designed in Moroccan style featuring sandstone finishes. The Wellness Center will also add five new treatments to the facility’s offerings.
The Body Holiday is also expanding its Watersports Center to include a new sailing program that will enable guests to learn to sail on J/24 sailboats. The sailing courses will be in added to existing resort watersports activities including water-skiing, snorkeling and windsurfing.
