ST. LUCIA

Take Your Body on Holiday at the Island’s Premier Resort.

St. LuciaStay: Take your body on holiday at one of the island’s premier resorts — Body Holiday — a Sunswept Resort. This is a heavenly place to stay when visiting beautiful St. Lucia.  Choose from an array of deluxe rooms. If you can swing it, reserve a deluxe oceanfront room; the amenities are superb and the view from the balcony is unforgettable. The resort is all-inclusive from spa to food to activities; forget your cares — this is the place to stay and play.

Spa: Hands down, Body Holiday offers an unparalleled spa experience in the Caribbean. Each guest enjoys a daily spa option as part of the package. The spa is a mighty 82 steps above the resort but one quickly adjusts to the climb knowing a sublime spa experience awaits at the top of the stairs. Therapists offer full body massages, facials, hand and foot treatments, and exotic body scrubs. Most treatments are included but there are several available at an additional charge, including nourishing body wraps,  hot stone massage and a hydra lift intensive facial that intoxicates the face with some super hydration.

Side trip to Sulphur Springs:  Once active but now quiet and serene, the volcano at Sulphur Springs Park offers insight into the geology of St. Lucia. Satisfy your inner geologist with a visit to what’s pitched as the “world’s only drive-in volcano.”  It’s an interesting side trip that’s well worth the drive.

Stop at Diamond Falls: The allure of Diamond Falls captured the attention of King Louis XVI of France, and the sight remains captivating for today’s travelers. He constructed bathhouses here for his army hundreds of years ago. The Falls, rich in natural minerals, are still an abundant and dazzling natural retreat. Aptly named Diamond Falls, of course they are a glistening wonder on a travelgirl’s St. Lucia to-do list.

Snap a Photo of the Pitons: Stunningly beautiful as they rise from the sea, these majestic twin peaks reach 2,000 feet and stand proud as St. Lucia’s most famous landmark. We can’t decide if they look more beautiful from sea or from shore. They beckon adventurous souls — but beware, these peaks are treacherous, even for the most ardent climbers.

Shop: The best shopping can be found in Castries, the capital of St. Lucia. The main streets to stroll are William Peter Boulevard and Bridge Street, where most items are sold duty-free. You might also enjoy the people watching at Castries Market; it’s filled with visitors shopping for Caribbean wares. With souvenirs galore, the market offers plenty to choose from to pack in your new Travelgirl carry-on.
