Nestled in the Sonoran Desert, CIVANA Wellness Resort & Spa is a holistic, award-winning wellness resort located just outside of Scottsdale, Arizona. Grounded in principles of flexibility and approachability, CIVANA is a premium destination for travelers seeking a highly personalized wellness experience that doesn’t feel prescriptive or restrictive. Movement: CIVANA believes an active body is a happy body. Every day, guests can participate in several complimentary movement and fitness classes - from hikes and aerial yoga to cycling and TRX training. There's something for everyone (the resort also has three pools on property for those who prefer not to move). Spa: CIVANA's state-of-the-art spa has 22 treatment rooms offering a wide range of rejuvenating treatments focused on healing through water. Its distinct Aqua Therapy Circuit contains a Kneipp walk, KLAFS SANARIUM® (the only one in the continental U.S.) and Cold Deluge, coupled with a Watsu therapy pool, 25-meter pool, sundeck, salon, and more, leaving guests feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Nourishment: CIVANA features two nourishing restaurants. Cafe Meto offers grain bowls, smoothies, cold-pressed juices, and wellness shots and Terras features locally sourced, veggie-forward entrees. Renowned Chef Justin Macy and his team present delicious, flavorful food that is also healthful. Craft cocktails and a strong wine list complement the culinary offerings. Discovery: At the core of how people understand wellness is the commitment to provide paths of change, growth, and discovery. Whether someone’s version of wellness is a glass of wine with a friend or meditation on the yoga lawn, CIVANA is committed to providing the possibility for guests to return home changed, if even just a little. CIVANA’s overarching wellness philosophy aims to bring happiness back to wellness. Wellness is often understood as the balance between healthiness and happiness. However, more often than not, wellness becomes solely defined by healthiness alone, leaving it feeling beneficial, but also unattainable, stringent, and even joyless. Like other destination wellness resorts, CIVANA emphasizes the healthy aspects – nutrition, fitness, rest, healing – but what makes it different is its intentional bias for happiness and ensuring it is part of each guest’s journey.
