Welcome to St. Lucia!
This Caribbean paradise will change your illusions about island vacations. Yes, St. Lucia has the crystal-clear waters and sandy beaches of the tropics, but it offers much more than just lying on the beach. When you’re planning your spa, health or wellness vacation, this island should be at the top of your wish list.
Natural ingredients form the foundation of the treatments used by many of the wellness professionals here. The mineral-rich mud from the island’s volcano; seasonal fruits; local herbs and spices like cinnamon, vanilla, bay leaf and even coconut water, are all used for your wellbeing. You’ll forget everything… except how to relax… while you’re here.
Professionals of the Caribbean Spa and Wellness Association eagerly welcome both visitors and locals alike to the many day spas, hotel and resort facilities here which have gained worldwide acclaim for their services and hospitality.
The interior of St. Lucia is tailor-made for hiking. A rainforest lies at the centre of the island, with the Pitons bursting forth from the sea in search of the skies on the western coast. If you do decide that lying out on the beach is your idea of a wellness vacation, there are hotels, spa resorts and inns which dot the many miles of beaches around the island. Tap into the culture of the seaside village of Soufriere or immerse yourself in the beat of the capital Castries where you’ll be bombarded by the sights, sounds and smells of St. Lucia.
Friday night? Ask a taxi driver to take you to the street party in Gros Islet. Plan on getting there around 9 o’clock and take in the wonder of scrores of vendors lining the streets offering a variety of local delicacies such as conch, lobster, fried or grilled fish, fish cakes and chicken all cooked on the spot.
St. Lucia – your health and wellness island in this paradise region of the Caribbean.
