Health & Wellness
We offer a variety of sport and fitness activities at Marigot Beach Club Spa and Wellness Retreat, which are listed below. In addition, we can arrange off-site activities through local providers, including horse riding, golf and tennis – for more details of off-site activities, please see our main website.
Rainforest Power Walking
The rainforest power walk takes you on an invigorating trek up the hillside behind the resort, through lush rainforest, to the crest of the hill where you’ll be rewarded with stunning views of not just Marigot Bay but also neighbouring islands St Vincent and Martinique. This is one activity where we highly recommend taking a camera with you!
Hatha Yoga is a centuries-old yoga system originating in India. It’s the most popular system of yoga, and the ‘mother’ of several other yoga styles including Power Yoga, Bikram Yoga, Kundalini Yoga and Ashtanga Yoga. Hatha Yoga balances the mind and body, using physical poses, breathing techniques and meditation, and helps improve the body’s flexibility and strength as well as helping you to stay calm in stressful situations.
Pilates is a series of exercises developed to alleviate back pain due to either poor muscle tone or injury. The exercises are designed to strengthen the abdominal area, thus supporting the back and diminishing discomfort. Flexibility and posture also play an important part in the teaching of this discipline and it has been proven to achieve fantastic results in a short space of time. This class has the seal of approval from the majority of the ‘celebs’ as being a fabulous way to tone and strengthen the whole body. Our pilates classes are taught by an experienced and qualified instructor who will provide a workout perfect for your level of experience, from beginner to advanced.
Our aqua aerobics sessions are designed to provide a great workout, while your body is supported by the water. While workouts are fairly vigorous, being supported by the water means that if you have an existing medical problem such as an old injury or joint pain that could be exacerbated by a high-impact activity like aerobics, with aqua aerobics your body feels lighter and so although the muscles are worked, the risk of injury is greatly reduced.
Steam rooms were popularised by the ancient Greeks and Romans. Over two thousand years later we haven’t lost sight of the many benefits of using a steam room, which include aiding sleep, easing stress, promoting healing and encouraging toxins to leave the body through perspiration. Using a steam room is a great way to relieve respiratory complaints, and an added bonus is that a steam room can help you to lose weight; it’s said that up to 600 calories can be burned during a 30-minute steam room session.
As with a steam room, an infra-red sauna can be a useful weight loss aid. An infra-red sauna can improve the circulation of the blood, revitalise the skin cells, improve the immune system, relieve a variety of aches and pains, and improve muscle tone and strength. While the humidity in a steam room is 100%, in an infra-red sauna the heat is usually completely dry.
