A life in balance allows us to thrive in the good times and persist through those less than! Miraval is dedicated to helping their guests live their best life; mind, body and soul. As part of Miraval’s life in balance | living in the present moment philosophy, a digital device-free environment is encouraged to achieve a rewarding and inspiring Miraval experience. Their device-free approach is not heavy-handed; guests are provided with hand-crafted cell phone beds or hammocks to promote disconnecting, but they are certainly welcome to use their devices for reading or taking photos. The idea is to give yourself permission to unplug. They call it the “Miraval Mode.”
I recently spent a few blissful days at Miraval Arizona, the flagship of the brand. A feeling of calm and relaxation was almost immediate upon my arrival. The next several days were filled with excellent food, sincere service, comfortable accommodations and a myriad of organized, well-run activities. I hiked, swam, balanced, stretched and meditated to my heart’s content. I also kept my brain stimulated. The resort keeps a rotating schedule of truly interesting speakers and has a well-known equine experience focusing on communication. The grounds are beautiful with unique metal art scattered around and lots of spots for quiet reading or even napping. Many of the guests I encountered were 3, 4 and 5-time repeaters. That’s always a very good sign! Miraval is an adult only destination spa/resort. It’s set up perfectly for singles, couples, pairs and small groups. Now is always the best time to invest in your best self!
