The Standard Garden Rooms 2015

The Standard Garden View rooms have now been completely renovated. First constructed in 1999 these rooms were classed as single rooms with no supplement to pay. The rooms have been redesigned to create more living space and as a result now boast a lovely king size bed and facilities for 1 or 2 guests. The no single supplement remains a compelling selling point.

The rooms also feature a day bed, with hardwood furniture and turquoise accents , which were planned to fit The BodyHoliday’s “Sleep Well” design concept by evoking a sense of tranquility and peace.

The rooms feature noice cancellation walls, high speed Wi Fi and electronic mirrors featuring LED lighting specifically tuned to the needs of make up and hair styling!

The beds are equipped with built in reading lamps that extend from a recess in the bedhead and can be angled to suit your reading position. The lamps on the night stands and other lighting in the room is designed as low key mood lighting.

All rooms are equipped with coffee maker, REN amenities and mini fridge. Another techno attribute is the bluetooth sound system. You can pair your personal device ( phone, tablet or laptop) with the room and play your music through the built in sound system.

The BodyHoliday is getting better!

We are currently in the process of improving our amenities and facilities to enhance the BodyHoliday experience to better serve the needs of our guests.  This web page is designed to provide information and answer questions you may have regarding the renovation.

What exactly are we doing?

We are completely refurbishing our 29 Standard Garden View Rooms and building two Villas on the hillside overlooking the resort behind TAO. Starting mid-September, we will be refurbishing our 16 Grand Luxury Ocean Front rooms, 7 Junior Suites and our Penthouse.

How long will the construction last?

Our Standard Garden View Rooms will be finished and available to guests at the end of August.  The Villas will be complete in late-2015.

We will be starting work on the Grand Luxury Ocean Front rooms, Junior Suites and Penthouse mid-September and they will open to our guests in the beginning of October.

How might this affect your stay?

The heavy construction, associated with the renovation of the Standard Garden Rooms and the construction of the Villas, is now finished guests may expect minimal noise disturbance.  All construction having to do with the rooms, will be done during the hours of 9am and 5:30pm.

Over the next few months, there may be some intermittent noise during the workday while the Villas are being constructed.  Due to the location of the Villas, we are confident that noise will not affect our guests’ enjoyment of their vacation.
