Add BodyAware to your itinerary -- it's the resort's holistic program that helps you tone and lose weight through nutrition, exercise, and healthy living changes you can take back to the States. Between that and the extensive spa treatment list, we bet you come back feeling refreshed and looking even better than you did before the wedding!
