While Caribbean resorts are known for pristine beaches, abundant buffets and fruity cocktails, they don’t usually offer a selection of specialized yoga and meditation classes or vegan a-la-carte menus. In an effort to broaden their appeal beyond the traditional vacationer, resorts are now developing unique programming that combines traditional resort living with a range of themed activities, spa treatments and menus to enhance their guest’s experience.
Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort is one vacation hot-spot that has created a program not typically offered at high-end resorts. They have combined luxury and rejuvenation to launch a Wellness Retreat.
Situated on over 60 acres of land in Labrelotte Bay, Windjammer Landing is a peaceful tropical oasis in Saint Lucia. The Windjammer Landing Wellness Retreat is a six-day all-inclusive yoga and spa vacation designed to help health and fitness enthusiasts restore, relax and reconnect.

Hatha, Vinyasa, Power and Restorative yoga classes, led by experienced yogis, are offered in a variety of breathtaking settings including beachside and in a hilltop garden overlooking the Caribbean Sea. “What we are trying to create is a hybrid vacation that offers high-level fitness programming without the rigid scheduling, rustic accommodations and simple menus that hardcore wellness retreats favor,” (who should we quote?). “We know that there are people who want to maintain their healthy active lifestyle, but still enjoy the luxuries of vacation.”
Vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options are not necessarily top-of-mind at all-inclusive resorts, where you are more likely to find taco and pasta bars then a smoothie bowl. Windjammer Landing’s executive Chef and Nutritionist have curated a fine dining menu designed to nourish the body and soul. Guests can expect imaginative dishes including carrot, ginger and pumpkin soup, a chickpea tagine with herb and tahini scented couscous and pineapple carpaccio with handmade coconut sorbet for dessert. There are options available for all diets, and every menu item can be customized.
Also included in the Wellness Retreat is Windjammer Landing’s Magnesium Wellness Massage. Hosted at their premium spa facility, which was recently upgraded as part of a $50 million-dollar resort-wide renovation, this signature treatment promotes balanced energy levels, muscle function and overall well-being. Designed to give weary travelers a boost in energy and to accelerate time zone adjustment, this service can be enjoyed unscented with sunflower oil rich in essential fatty acids or customized with a revitalizing essential oil blend.
Evening retreat activities include a ‘Sip and Paint’ where guests are invited to channel wellness through art and enjoy a glass of wine while painting a Saint Lucia sunset. The Windjammer Landing Wellness Retreat is all about balance and finding what works best for your body and spirit.
Enhanced vacation experiences await. For more information on Windjammer Landing and the Wellness Retreat, running from June 2nd , 2019 – June 8th, 2019, visit:
