- Wellness centre: At the very core of The BodyHoliday’s offering is the Wellness Center. The Wellness Center has won many international awards, most recently, the readers of Condé Nast Traveller have voted it the Favourite Overseas Spa Retreat in the world for 2011. Guests receive an included treatment daily, excepting their days of arrival and departure. Additional treatments at the wellness center range from Ayurvedic therapies at our authentic Ayurvedic centre to beauty treatments at our Skin Clinic and so much more.
- Cariblue beach: the resort sits on a secluded, crescent shaped beach. The palm trees that are dotted around the shore sway as the sea breeze gently wafts in from the Caribbean and there is a quiet relaxed air as the guests get down to the serious business of relaxation. Reading, listening to music, finding shapes in the odd cloud that skits past or simply enjoying a feeling of wellbeing
- Activities: The BodyHoliday offers a number of land and watersports ranging from tennis and golf to waterskiing and scuba diving. Our guests can be as active or as relaxed as they wish!
- Food & Drink: Great food and drink are central to our lives and not many things give us greater pleasure than a fabulous meal that is well cooked, using fresh ingredients and eaten in lovely surroundings. As good diet is one of our four pillars of wellbeing we are choosy about the products that we use. The quality of the food at our four bars and restaurants is important to us. It has to be fresh, beautifully prepared and where we can, we use locally grown products. We even have our own vegetable garden so that the food is as fresh as fresh can be.
The Penthouse Suite - A private entry staircase at the fourth floor leads to the only suite at the fifth level. Its open floor plan features a large living area and wet-bar and a free-standing wall unit divides the living and bedroom spaces. In the bathroom, sliding frosted glass doors reveal a bubble chandelier that floats above a soaking tub for two. This tub, which is elevated on a platform accented by custom-design mosaic tile, offers spectacular access to ocean views and surrounding living areas.
The Penthouse suite's piece de résistance is the private Hammam, which features a marble-slab heated massage bed, marble benches and walls of mosaic marble that gradually progress from dark chocolate and Emperador travertine to Thasos white at the peak of the LED-lit dome ceiling. A steam room with mosaic curved bench and rain-head shower offer guests a unique in-room spa experience in their very own exclusive space. Dining:
Tao Restaurant - TAO is the jewel in the crown of The BodyHoliday's gastronomy. It was named by Condé Nast Traveller Magazine as one of the "60 Hottest Tables" in the world and has maintained its AAA Diamond Award since March 2007. It is known for its fusion of Eastern and Western cuisine and its stylish ambiance with an accent on art and music. Perched on a second-floor balcony at the edge of our Cariblue Beach, you're guaranteed a pleasant breeze and a starry sky while enjoying a delicious dining experience.Spa & Massage:
Honeymoon massage - This one hour session has been created to bring about an emotional and physical bond between partners to help them relax and banish stresses and strains. We teach you Swedish massage techniques that you can then use back at home.
