Miraval Arizona’s Life in Balance Spa




Tucson has been a haven for health enthusiasts for years, with resorts like Canyon Ranch Health Resort and restaurants like Lovin’ Spoonfuls appealing to those who want plenty of outdoor activity, fresh air and nurturing food. And now, another top-tier Tucson resort is looking to attract a new kind of wellness visitor.

The all-inclusive Miraval Arizona Resort & Spa, owned by Steve Case (a co-founder of AOL), has activities like golf, tennis, horseback riding and wellness programs. And as of this month, the resort is opening a new “Life in Balance” Spa as part of a partnership with beauty line Clarins.

The renovated spa will have a total of 23 treatment rooms, six of which will be outdoors. More than 30 new treatments have been created, and exclusive therapies will also be available at the private and ultra-luxe Miraval Spa Suite, which can also be used as a couple’s suite. This space has its own desert-view garden and private bath and shower, where guests can have lunch beside the two-way fireplace or just unwind in the in-ground hot tub.

While the most popular rooms at the resort are the Catalina Rooms, we hear the Catalina Suites are the best picks, with a full glass wall for looking over the landscape, as well as a private outdoor space with a shower. The suites also have fireplaces.

For total privacy, try one of the four villas, which offer a resort-within-a-resort experience. All of the villas have indoor and outdoor showers and soaking tubs; two full master suites (one of which has a private courtyard with its own hot tub); a private patio with dining area, gas fire pit and infinity pool; a full kitchen and dining room for six; and a dedicated laundry room. Perks at the villas include roundtrip airport transfers, all meals, a dedicated Villa Concierge and VIP check-in. (Note: Villa rentals require a three-night minimum stay.)

The guest services department is available at all times and can create any kind of experience a guest wants. (The team once shipped furniture from a guest’s house to her Miraval Suite so that she could feel at home.)
