Four Caribbean resorts to revive and rejuvenate your body and soul

The Caribbean is the perfect place for a wellness industry. With brilliant sunshine most days of the year, beaches in abundance, lush greenery and many fruits and fresh food around, this is definitely the place people can escape to when they need to unplug and recharge. 

We found some resorts tucked away in some of the most beautiful islands in the region that cater to just that. So pack your bags and put aside some time to take care of yourself.

Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort, St Lucia

Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort has combined luxury and rejuvenation to launch a Wellness Retreat. The Windjammer Landing Wellness Retreat is a six-day all-inclusive yoga and spa vacation that offers hatha, vinyasa, power and restorative yoga classes. Guests can expect imaginative dishes including carrot, ginger and pumpkin soup, a chickpea tagine with herb and tahini scented couscous and pineapple carpaccio with handmade coconut sorbet for dessert. The signature treatment  is the Windjammer Landing's Magnesium Wellness Massage designed to give weary travelers a boost in energy and to accelerate time zone adjustment. This service can be enjoyed unscented with sunflower oil rich in essential fatty acids or customised with a revitalizing essential oil blend.
