The chilly start to winter on the East Coast has left us jonesing for some serious fun in the sun. But unfortunately, the holiday party circuit has also left us less than excited to don that bathing suit.

The new wellness retreat from luxury Antigua resort Curtain Bluff offers the best of both worlds — a kick-butt fitness experience with the advantages of a five-star vacation.

Led by celebrity trainer Simone De La Rue, who has worked with A-listers like Sandra Bullock, Naomi Watts and Chelsea Clinton, guests will enjoy a unique blend of head-to-toe fitness that works body, mind and soul.

What we love about this trip is that guests don’t have to sacrifice ‘me’ time, either. In addition to a daily fitness class with Simone and access to other fitness experiences like yoga, Zumba and tennis, guests can take advantage of an all-inclusive stay that also includes a cooking class, complimentary spa treatment and catamaran sailing trip.

The week starts at $5,500 for four nights or $8,500 for seven nights, based on double occupancy.
