TRAVEL: A Caribbean love affair…


After the last Christmas cracker has been pulled, the turkey left-overs have been consumed and the Christmas party season has finally ended, we all want to relax, get in shape and detox in January. Why do this in the cold of the UK when there has never been a better time to head to the golden shores of the Caribbean.

At Traveltime, we believe that everybody deserves to be spoilt and pampered on holiday and the Caribbean features some of the most spectacular destination spas on the planet for rejuvenation, health and well-being.

Treat yourself to the very highest levels of care and attention in the most supremely relaxing surroundings imaginable. You could visit the secluded rainforest retreats of Sugar Beach in St Lucia, the holistic ocean spas of Jamaica or experience ancient Mayan healing techniques at Maroma Resort and Spa in Mexico. The options are endless and you’ll be able to choose from a wide range of beauty therapies, restorative massages and holistic health and wellbeing programmes with exotic products and reinvigorating treatments from the world’s leading spa brands.


Barbados is always a British favourite and great if you enjoy eating out – there’s plenty of restaurants to choose between, (it is always worth booking at the most popular venues which include, The Cliff, Fish Pot and Tides) picture-perfect gold courses and great hotels in abundance.  From small boutique style, like Treasure Beach and Coral Reef to larger resort hotels like Turtle Beach and Sandy Lane.

St Lucia is a picturesque island.  Wherever you go you get a backdrop of tropical mountain scenery. There are fabulous beaches, stunning coral reefs and acres of rainforest. Amongst all of this are fantastic hotels where you can be as active or as relaxed as you desire. To be amongst nature, look at Anse Chastanet. A great family hotel is the Windjammer Landing and for those who like to be pampered, check out the BodyHoliday.
