At Virtuoso Travel Week, BodyHoliday was awarded the Best Wellness Program, one of the 2018 Best of the Best Awards. Only 10 properties and hoteliers were recognized in the awards.
Located in the northern part of Saint Lucia, BodyHoliday serves “to change people’s lives, one person at a time” through health, wellness and fitness programming, healthy eating, and luxury amenities and service—all of which are tailored to the individual guest. As BodyHoliday marks its 30th anniversary this year, the resort is currently embarking on an extensive, multimillion-dollar renovation that will transform its guestrooms, restaurants, wellness center and public spaces, following initial renovations in 2017. The resort is set to reopen to the public in the coming weeks.
“Every year we are tasked with selecting the very best representatives in luxury hospitality,” said Albert Herrera, senior vice president, Global Product Partnerships for Virtuoso, “and these 10 Best of the Best winners emerged as leaders from amongst a global collection of properties famed for their excellence. These hotels have raised the caliber of the entire network, and we thank BodyHoliday for providing such a shining example as the Best Wellness Program winner.”
“We are so honored for BodyHoliday to receive this award,” said Andrew Barnard, deputy managing director of BodyHoliday. “At our core, we strive to provide the tools for our guests to improve their overall health and wellbeing and we are grateful to be recognized for our achievements by such an esteemed institution as Virtuoso.”
Virtuoso’s 1,000-plus travel agency members and their 17,500 professional travel advisors voted to select the winners in each.
BodyHoliday has 155 guestrooms, and offers activities such as archery, scuba diving, spinning, Pilates, Ayurvedic treatments and Reiki. It also hosts a number of programs throughout the year, including September Solos, Jive-June, WellFit Families (July-August), WellFit boot camps, Octoba Yoga and PreChristmas Restorative Break.
