This was my third visit to Miraval, this time for a day visit and I made the most of it. I was visiting Tucson for a wedding and stayed on an extra day to visit the day spa. An incredible value! $300 for the day which includes lunch and $150 credit for a spa service. I squeezed in Core power at 9am, pool time, lunch outside, a massage, and 2 yoga classes at 3p and 4p! Plan ahead! Book spa services early and reserve any special classes before you arrive. Grab a fresh pressed juice on your way in and drink plenty of water.

First time in Arizona and this resort. Beautiful grounds and very polite and knowledgeable staff and guides. So many different options of activities to choose from such as spa treatments, fitness/team building activities, bee keeping/honey tasting, meditation, guest lecturers, I could go on and on. I really recommend trying activities out of your comfort zone and to make reservations ahead of time. I made mine about a month in advance. Cell phone usage is only allowed in your room and in certain areas of the resort (I liked that). I also liked that all food choices had the nutritional information listed (calories, carbs, protein, etc), some people may not appreciate this, but I did. I also loved the fact that you could pretty much hang out in your robe all day and throughout the resort. I saw a lot of people having breakfast and lunch in their robes either just returning from a spa service or getting ready to go to an appointment. A note to the men that might be going...the only TVs at the resort are in the rooms. We went during the NCAA tournament and some of the men were disappointed that there wasn't a television at the bar. Overall, excellent experience. PS-there are 2 owls that have a nest at the spa area of the resort. Super cool to see them there.

So, I've been to Canyon Ranch (my first destination spa experience) and I had a good experience there, except that I thought the rooms were dated. For my second try, I booked Miraval, which is very expensive and which I therefore thought would be a step up. But, it's not, and I would advise any travelers deciding between the two to pick CR. Miraval's grounds are slightly more beautiful (though both are gorgeous desert settings) and I liked the room better too. But many other things were problematic. For dinner, you have to sign up for a 30 minute slot, and if you are late getting to the sign-up sheet, you're eating dinner at 5 or at 9. You'd think they could fix this up better in a small spa without many guests. Breakfast and lunch are buffets, and frankly, the food in general is quite mediocre. We even tried the bar food in desperation when we could not get a dinner slot, and we ended up chewing on gristly beef tacos. "Snacks" are cut into half and kept behind glass, which feels really stingy. And a huge number of the activities have an extra charge (from $80 to $300!) so even though you are paying $1000/night, many of the more fun classes involve emptying your wallet out still further. I've read this in some other reviews, and I had the same experience: the management seems to have hired young staff for some of their main positions (e.g. scheduling classes/reservations) who are quite indifferent and/or not well informed and/or moving at zombie speed. Unlike CR, at Miraval they don't send you materials ahead of time, so it's not easy picking out your activities until you get here. In any case, once I was here I had a host of mediocre experiences, from the much-advertised "10,000 facial" that involved 72 forms of goo being thrown on your back and wiped off with a warm towel (ridiculous!) to a hair trim that was very bad and left me with layered hair when I just wanted to trim my ends (and in a tiny room with no window and one chair -- wha? this is not a salon). After getting my hair pulled and my scalp burned, I left the place with a dreadful haircut that was not the trim I asked for, and with a sopping wet shirt from cold water being poured down my back. I tried sitting in the "quiet room" in the spa and two people were chatting away nonstop; when I asked an employee if he could ask them to move into the regular room he said "yes of course!" but he didn't do anything, so 20 minutes later I had to ask them myself. Why did he pretend he would ask them to move? That was -- unfair. And so on. I came with a friend who is a first time spa-goer, but we both agreed: this is not a place to return to. We had a villa to ourselves, but it didn't feel particularly clean, and the bathroom was quite, er, downscale. Again, for $1000 a night, what are they thinking? The desert is stunning, but the actual resort should make an effort too. Did I mention that every time I tried to get back in the room my card didn't work? Sooooo annoying. Also, we needed more water in the room and the four tubes of "amenities" were pathetic. Now that I've been so negative, I do want to point out a few bright spots. I recommend the rock climbing with Kyle and his partner, and the Arena horseback lesson with Melissa, who was awesome. I liked my pedicure with Lauren. I liked my acupuncturist but she kept saying my lifestyle was "sick" (because I work a lot), and that was hard to hear. Maybe more gentle vocabulary would be good? But she was great otherwise and I would see her again anytime. Um.... I think that's it for the positives. So, in general: yes, this is a beautiful place and if you are not too fussy (and rich enough to pay without blinking) you will love it. Still, the food is infinitely better at Canyon Ranch (wait, let me say it again: INFINITELY) and I don't think the people they've hired here are all that great at anything. No doubt management will respond and say "Thank you for your praise of our lodging and your appreciation of our horseback riding facilities. We're so sorry our other awesome opportunities did not meet your expectations." Etc. Whatever. I'm not looking for a refund or for apologies or rhetoric. I'm just saying that if you care, you can find a better place.

What a magical place! I had never gone to a spa resort before so I have nothing to compare it to – but it’s hard to believe you could get better than this! My friend and I stayed 5 nights. I wouldn’t recommend anything shorter in order to de-stress. I would definitely try to stay longer next time. Here’s a summary of this special resort: Grounds: Beautiful! The landscape is very calming and relaxing with many water features, benches to sit and be peaceful, an area with bird feeders, a kiva, a labyrinth, not to mention social areas near the main building with lounge chairs, tables, etc. Then there’s the awesome background of the Catalina mountains. Activities: A lot of the activities are included. I experienced the yoga, meditation, and MANY of the wonderful 45 minute talks by experienced, knowledgeable staff (Mindful relationships; Mindful stress mastery; Letting Go and Letting In; Calm the Mind, Open the Heart (using Tibetan singing bowls – excellent!); Discover your soul mission and Unleash the Power of Your Soul (with Tejpal – a very fascinating woman!). There were also some activities that had extra fees. We did the yoga hike (I highly recommend this) and the Introduction to Ayurveda, which was very informative for someone like me who did not know anything about this ancient practice. Spa Treatments: There’s also something for everyone here. I chose three: The ultimate ayurvedic treatment (pouring oil over your forehead was SO relaxing!); the anti-aging facial, and THE best part of my entire trip: the Samadi Healing Ceremony. Dr. Tim performed this and I can’t speak highly enough about it. That’s another review all in itself. I’ll just say it was life changing for me. Important Note: I highly recommend that you schedule your spa treatments as soon as the schedule comes out so that you get the treatments you want at the times you want. These can book up quickly. If you want one-on-one sessions with counselors or other professionals, I would do the same. I would have loved to have had a one-on-one with Tejpal but she was fully booked. Luckily, she does phone consultations so I may do that. Accommodations: We were in a Native Spirit Double 400 square feet room.. We spent very little time in our room so did not feel the need to have a larger room or one with a big patio overlooking water features. It was very comfortable. There was plenty of room for the two of us (two beds – I think they were regular or queens), a small L-shaped sofa and table, nice sized bathroom with closet and dresser. There was a large flat screened TV but we never turned it on. Our room opened up into a nice courtyard with a fountain. We were in the section next to the gym. The tennis courts were on the other side of us. Food: The food was delicious and very fresh. My vegan friend was at first concerned about the few vegan options, however, the server quickly told her that the chef could make a dish vegan for her. Try the prickly pear iced tea. Very refreshing and addictive! There were always lots of choices at the buffet and the dinner menu was varied and always very good. A couple nights we just ate in the bar area (Yes, they have alcohol here!). We just ordered a few appetizers to share and were good to go. Staff: EVERYBODY from the front desk, to the landscapers, maintenance crew, restaurant staff, gift shop clerks, housekeeping, you name it, were as helpful and pleasant as could be. Kudos to the hiring staff for the excellent employees they have here! I would LOVE to go back here every year! It was one of the most relaxing, enjoyable, information filled, and rejuvenating vacations I have taken. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
