Wellness Retreats - Caribbean

If sun, sea and sand are not enough to rejuvenate body and soul, think beyond the standard getaway and seek out those special retreats, where your all-round well-being is their only objective.

Jakes Hotel, Jamaica

The sound of crashing waves lulls you to sleep whichever one of Jakes’ vibrant, hippy chic rooms or cottages you choose. Perched on Jamaica’s rugged south coast, the terrain is ideal for trekking and cycling, while TRX workouts and daily yoga classes are practiced on the driftwood-decorated deck.

Fitness-fiends can take it further on regular yoga retreats or test their mettle at the annual off-road triathlon, while day trips include boat rides and river tubing. Superb local food and open-air spa treatments round off an enriching experience. jakeshotel.com


La Luna, Grenada

Colourful, breezy and romantic, La Luna’s 16 cottages are tucked into an emerald hillside, overlooking a secluded beach. The strong focus on wellness means guests can pamper themselves from sunrise to sunset with daily yoga classes at the water’s edge, Balinese massages at the Asian spa, herbal teas in the tranquillity pavilion and gentle walks through organic gardens.

For the ultimate blissed out experience, the 'wellness package' includes all of this as well as time to hike through the rainforest, swim in the ocean and dive into jungle waterfalls. laluna.com


Le Guanahani, St Barth

On the star-studded isle of St Barth, the casually luxurious Le Guanahani resort’s menu of wellness options would please the most demanding of divas. Certified therapists use the finest Clarins skincare products at the eponymous spa, and offer the only Intraceuticals rejuvenating facials on the island.

Fitness trainers lead private yoga, pilates, aqua fitness, zumba and velaqua sessions on the beach, under the trees or at the spa and occasional celebrity-led wellness weekends are held. Alternatively, guests can combine mindfulness, movement and organic food on a three- or five-day Orahe programme designed by supermodel Estelle Lefébure. leguanahani.com
