Saint Lucia to Host Health, Wellness Retreat in November

Sen. Allen Chastanet, St. Lucia's minister of tourism and civil aviation, announced plans for the first  health and wellness retreat in the charming former French capital of  Soufrière from November 17-20, 2011.

The retreat will feature workshops and wellness experiences, featuring some of the world's foremost experts in yoga, feng shui, art and cuisine in a community which Chastanet describes as "The Eden of the Caribbean."
 


The retreat is being launched alongside preparations to build a landmark destination spa at Soufrière's drive-in volcano, which offers visitors therapeutic mineral baths.  

"Soufrière was chosen in part because of the number of world class spas in the town, and we are pleased that our hotels and resorts are on board for the retreat," said Chastanet.



The health and wellness retreat will promote a wide variety of approaches to enhance healthy minds and healthy bodies through nature trail hikes, bicycle rides and other specially-designed experiences. The health and wellness retreat is being produced by the Soufrière Foundation in partnership with Soufrière's resort community and in concert with the Saint Lucia Tourist Board.
