4. BodyHoliday, St. Lucia
Looking for a true fitness retreat smack-dab in the middle of paradise? Check out BodyHoliday, an all-inclusive luxury resort dedicated to your adventure wants and relaxation needs. Cloaked tropical rainforest in the Carribbean island nation of St. Lucia, this tucked-away cove is the perfect landscape to break a sweat—which is why BodyHoliday just launched its Adventure Programme. Scramble over the rocky terrain of Pigeon Island and the old military ruins along the national park, summiting Signal Peak or The Pitons—two volcanic mountains that soar 798m above sea level. If you want to get your feet wet, take the plunge at The Errard Waterfall Abseil. You’ll hike through the belly of the Edmund Rainforest, then abseil (rappel) down a 66-foot waterfall. You can also race high-speed performance yachts, scuba dive, and work out with professional athletes like former NFL wide receiver Randy Moss.
Where to stay: The BodyHoliday resort is a sanctuary in full. The rooms have a pillow menu, glimpses of the Caribbean or garden views, and complimentary tea and cookies before bed.
Best time to go: If you book between May and June, you’ll enjoy more moderate temperatures—around high 70s to 80s—according to U.S. News & World Report.
Expert tip: Take advantage of the award-winning spa. A sports massage is always a good idea.
