What’s more, BodyHoliday highlights a different activity nine months out of the year. During these months, the hotel welcomes professionals from all over the world, including practitioners, athletes, dancers, sailors, sports stars, and more.

This October, BodyHoliday welcomed Heatwise, an elevated hot yoga studio, to teach classes each day. Guests can expect to see programming like Spring Sail, Jive June, September Solos, and the always popular Octoba Yoga.
When guests aren’t participating in activities, they can enjoy one of the many restaurants on the property. Cariblue Restaurant has a delicious breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu that serves world-class international cuisines as well as mouthwatering local dishes that highlight flavors of the Caribbean. There’s also Tao restaurant, a fine dining establishment that offers cuisine with influences from both East and West. Guests can expect to nosh on fresh sushi, Peking duck, Thai curry, and more. For those who want something more casual, they can head to the Wellness Cafe for smoothies, healthy juices, light bites, and nutritious lunches that they can pick up on the go. If they prefer to sit down, they can head to Pavilion Grill, which is a casual eatery that serves simple and healthy food.
