This is a guest post from the team at the newly-refurbished TheBodyHoliday at LeSPORT on St Lucia.   Colum

We are delighted to say that TheBodyHoliday re-opened on 2 October after a $20 million, four-month long refurbishment!  Our friends at Friendship Travel have already held two Solo events during the first weeks of operation at the ‘new’ resort.

Why is it that when they say ‘it will be finished by…’ it always takes a few days longer?  This meant that a few, mostly cosmetic, jobs were still being done as we welcomed our first guests and I gained a few more grey hairs, but the sun shone, the new facilities met with approval and a good time was had by all.  We thank all our guests for their patience in those first few days.

During their time here, our solo travellers really enjoyed the hosted dinners in the new Cariblue and in Tao – our Thai Fusion restaurant.  And in addition to the great value all-inclusive arrangements at TheBodyHoliday, Friendship Travel guests also enjoyed a sunset cruise and some ‘solo special’ goodies.

Several of you commented in particular on the new pools, saying how beautiful they are, and how great the new Cariblue Restaurant is especially with its round tables.

We look forward to welcoming many more single travellers at TheBodyHoliday in the coming months – there really is no better place to escape the British winter!

We’ll be posting a few more photos here, and on Friendship Travel’s Facebook page.
