Miraval, Life in Balance

Tuscon, Arizona

Located in the Sonoran Desert near the Santa Catalina Mountains, Miraval Life in Balance's southwestern-style casitas are located on 135 manicured acres replete with wildflowers and towering palms. Dozens of quiet reflection areas are tucked away on the all-inclusive property, which has pools, tennis courts, and a golf course as well as an array of activity facilities, such as hiking and biking trails and a climbing wall. The Miraval experience is about more than just the body; the property is touted as a center for self-discovery and mindfulness. Some of the most popular activities, such as adrenaline-pumping physical challenges and a celebrated equine therapy program, are designed to help guests reach personal goals. This focus on individual growth extends to theme weeks and workshops on health, photography, and more. The property's 106 rooms are organized into five cozy villages, and the Cactus Flower dining hall serves three fresh, healthy meals to guests each day. Spiritual improvement is complemented with aesthetic enhancement, as more than 100 spa treatments are available for the face and body, including Ayurvedic therapies, cranio-sacral massage, exfoliation, and detoxifying facials.
