A legendary spa destination
becomes legendary for a reason. First, the spa or wellness resort offers
exceptional services and programs. Staff members are experienced and considered
the best in the spa/wellness business. Accommodations
are stellar and the food is both healthy and delicious. Guests
write rave reviews and journalists gush. But most of all a legendary spa
delivers on its promise to help each guest rediscover the inner spark that
makes life worth living–and find the elusive balance we all seek.
There’s no question that
Miraval Resorts defines a legendary spa experience. (The awards and kudos speak for themselves.)
That’s why we’re excited that Miraval is expanding its unique stamp on wellness
once again and bringing more locations to fans across the U.S. and more.
The Miraval Moment
Since Miraval founded its
flagship location in Tucson, Arizona in 1995, innovative mental wellness and
mindfulness have played a leading role in its wellbeing equation. And while Miraval
offers exceptional physical and educational programs–there are over 120
complimentary wellness activities, lectures and fitness classes weekly–it first
gained fame with its Equine Experience,
where guests live life in the moment as they work with specially selected
horses and expert facilitators. Moreover, Miraval is renowned for its
emphasis on emotional and spiritual wellbeing–and a belief that life is more meaningful
and joyful when in balance.
For example,Miraval Arizona’s classes in the
summer of 2019 include Celestial Yoga
and a guided Magic of the Moon
experience. And the newest destination, Miraval Austin, nestled in the heart of Texas Hill
Country, is offering Namaskara,
Salutations to the Sunlight yoga and New
Moon, Full Moon workshops.
Miraval Resort’s unique
wellness stamp also boasts a less rigid environment that works for both
wellness purists and those of us who enjoy a glass of wine with dinner. And
while Miraval is all about healthy, you don’t have to be vegan or count
calories during your stay. We think this is why guys like Miraval destinations.
You can check out every class possible, learn from nutritional experts, take up
mediation–or just veg at the pools, play tennis, try a zip line or book a
horseback ride. The choice is yours.
Where to Find Your Miraval Magic
Since Hyatt purchased
Miraval in early 2017, it has worked to preserve its unique approach to
wellness, emphasizing authenticity and mindfulness. However, Hyatt is also
enhancing the brand by opening more locations.
The spa’s signature treatments and classes are offered at Park Hyatt St.
Kitts Christophe Harbour and Miraval Life In Balance Spa at Monarch
Austin features the full Miraval experience along with activities
you won’t find in the Arizona desert, like kayaking, fly-fishing and stand up
paddle boarding. In addition, the equine program includes more trail rides (It
is Texas, after all). According to Forbes magazine, a new Austin experience invites guests to help till or
harvest plants and herbs used in creating spa products, which are left for
future guests with handwritten notes. Miraval
Austin has also expanded the farm-to-table element in its cuisine.
plans to open more Miraval resort spas including Miraval Berkshires, scheduled for Spring 2020. Moreover, look for Miraval
influences in other Hyatt owned properties, like meditation and yoga tapes and
on-demand fitness videos.
and Hyatt: We think it’s a marriage made in wellness heaven.
