Le Guanahani: Happy is the New Healthy

When the Managing Director Martein van Wagenberg of Le Guanahani St. Barth, one of my favorite Caribbean resorts, mentioned that the resort was marking its 30th Anniversary this year with a wellness retreat focused entirely around meditation and chocolate, I think I fell into a trance.LG_ND_Beach_146_ALThigh

I pictured my toes in the sand, the cool trade winds blowing, and my mouth full of melting Caribbean chocolate dripping down my lips. My mental vacation had already begun. With no mention of any boot camp or running on the beach at ungodly hours of the morning only to be rewarded with a handful of carrots and a green juice, I was ready to pack my bags. You didn’t just have me at hello. You had me at yoga flow.LG_JT_indigo-shrimp_50high

Author, yogi and wellness expert Dave Romanelli, says “Happy is the New Healthy,” and he will be leading this first-of-a-kind wellness retreat from February 4-7, 2016 where guests will disconnect to reconnect all in the name of bettering yourself.Garden-View-One-Bedroom-Suite_2

Based on Romanelli’s “Meditate ON” series, participants will be guided through sensory inspired meditations focused on slowing you down, tapping into positive energy and awakening the senses.Ocean-One-Bedroom-Pool-Suite_7

From activities such as sunrise and sunset meditation at Marigot Beach, yoga, a variety of wellness and water sports activities, it’s a renewal of the senses and the mind, body and soul.LG_JT_marechal-beach_43high

To push temptation wellness even further, Dave  and Le Guanahani’s Chef Nicola de Marchi promise that you will “savor champagne and warm Caribbean dark chocolate with a gingerbread and foie gras lollipop in between soothing meditation. Your senses will come alive in this unforgettably, deliciously present moment.”Indigo-on-the-Beach_1

Snap! Snap! Will someone please wake me from this delightful trance?

For any of you “new year, new you” believers, this wellness weekend has limited space and includes activities and designated meals. Accommodations in one of Le Guanahani’s charming 30 rooms, 27 suites and 10 signature suite are not included, but you can easily reserve at
