Nestled in the Sonoran Desert, just about 20 minutes north of Scottsdale, Civana Resort and Spa is a destination wellness resort that offers a regenerating experience of serenity and health. I recently checked in to the gorgeous property for 24 hours of pure relaxation and rejuvination. The resort is surrounded by beautiful desert scenery, making it the perfect escape to indulge in and enjoy the summer sun and the refreshing pools on site. (Tip: I especially LOVE the Spa pool!)
Every day, guests at Civana are encouraged to participate in more than a dozen complimentary fitness classes, including everything from hikes and aerial yoga to myofascial release and TRX training. Seriously- most of the classes are included in your stay- a rarety in the world of wellness resorts that nickle and dime you for every class and service. Don’t worry about feeling sore, Civana’s state-of-the-art spa offers a wide range of therapeutic and rejuvenating treatments that will leave you feeling great. Even if you’re not getting a spa servcice, guests are invited to expierence the hydro circuit featuring various tubs and showers of alternating hot and cold water. My favorite was the bubbly massage hot tub followed by the cold plunge bucket shower.
Civana Resort features two on-property restaurants, Terras and Cafe Meto. From farm-to-table, veggie-filled entrees at Terras, to grain bowls, smoothies, and juices at Cafe Meto, Chef Justin Macy and his culinary team present great tasting, heath-centered food, with a wide variety of compatible wines as well. Dietary restricts or allergies? No problem- there’s somethign for everyone on these menus. We had dinner at Terras and the mussels, build your own tacos, and beet salad were divine! There were even few “healthy desserts” that I highly recommend.
The goal at Civana’s Resort and Spa is to focus on ensuring each guest is healthy and happy and trust me, they do a great job at it.
