Our healthfulness retreat on the beach in St Lucia takes place in a private sea view villa in Soufriere.

You’ll also see original colourful creole style wooden houses in some of the streets and old estate houses that have mainly been renovated to boutique hotels.
What do detox holidays really mean for you and your health? To put it bluntly, your body is under attack from toxins day and night. Happily our bodies are generally good at filtering out the bad stuff before it gets to us. However, if you are exposed to higher than average toxins, perhaps because you live in the city where there are more pollutants, or have a highly stressful lifestyle, or have been partying a little too hard, you ought to give your body some support by ‘detoxing’. Simply put, a detox gives your body a real boost in its tireless campaign to keep you healthy. If you are feeling sluggish, irritable, and unable to focus, or if you are experiencing headaches, bloating, or skin breakouts, and just generally feel grotty, your body is trying to tell you something. It is a wake up call to get help before the body becomes so overwhelmed by trying to unload its toxins that you become run down or ill. A detox holiday benefits you by boosting your immune system and improving your overall wellbeing. It is like giving your body an MOT so that it can run more smoothly. You will emerge with a greater awareness of your body, and with the nutritional tools to keep it in good condition for years to come. We have chosen some exceptional detox retreats for you to consider, from introductory programmes to juice fasting.
