Suite of the Week: Villa Hibiscus at the BodyHoliday, St. Lucia

It might take a couple days of traversing, but you can definitely find peace and pleasure in 8,000 square feet of tropical villa. 

Where is it? On the beautiful, tropical, craggy island of Saint Lucia, in the middle of the Caribbean between Barbados and Martinique.

The Hotel: The name is no misnomer: when you get to the BodyHoliday, you’ll be shuttled through a wellness center, tennis courts, SCUBA diving, archery courses and a plethora of yoga and Pilates classes. Everything is included. Or, you can opt for a nap on the beach or a string of meals at TAO, rated as one of the best restaurants in the Caribbean.

The Suite: The Villa Hibiscus is its very own experience: on the grounds of the resort, but totally self-contained. Private balconies, breezy white furnishings, crystal chandeliers and an extensive garden make leaving your private oasis difficult.

The Selling Point: The privacy of your own island home among the bustling opportunities of the all-inclusive resort in which the structure sits – retreat and emerge entirely on your schedule.

By the Numbers: 7,885 square feet, with five bedrooms, an outside shower, a private pool, and a massage room. $4000/night at
