THE MIRAVAL GIVES BACK PROGRAM
Miraval Gives Back aims to help some of the people most in need of a weekend of wellness – those bravely facing challenging, life-altering events, but lacking the resources to book a stay. Recipients are able to participate in a range of fitness classes, outdoor activities, meditative sessions and innovative spa services to heal themselves both physically and emotionally. To be considered for Miraval Gives Back, nominees must have their names submitted by a friend or loved one along with a 500-description by the nominator about the struggles they have and/or are currently encountering.
Miraval began in 1996 with a powerfully simple vision: life is more meaningful and enjoyable when physical, emotional, social, spiritual and intellectual components are in balance. Guided by this philosophy, Miraval Resort & Spa was born in Tucson, set against the Santa Catalina Mountains in the High Sonoran Desert. Guests came to Miraval individually or with family and friends to relax, refresh, and learn to live and feel better. There were no strict regimens. Instead, choice was the guiding principle, with a wide range of programs and experiences designed to create overall well-being and help guests become more aware of themselves and their surroundings – live in the moment through the means that works best for them.
Miraval’s pioneering approach to activities, experiences and personal treatments – enveloped in a high-touch, personalized experience for each of its guests – helped to define the destination spa industry that has flourished worldwide in recent decades and led to Miraval’s top ranking by the most respected voices in luxury travel, including Condé Nast Traveler, Travel+Leisure, Zagat Survey, and SpaFinder, just to name a few.
In 2004, Steve Case, co-founder of AOL, became the majority owner of Miraval. Through his own memorable experience at the resort, he saw the opportunity to grow Miraval into a global lifestyle brand.
Miraval helps individuals to live and feel better, resulting in more a more magnificent life, through a focus on healthy and sustainable living. The Miraval experience is: fresh, locally-sourced ingredients to make gorgeously flavorful food; signature self-discovery and growth activities that make the heart-pump and the head re-think; fabulous spa services that ignite the senses; an unrivaled team of well being specialists to help you make positive and lasting change in your life; and the feeling of being taken care of from your first point of contact.
Mindfulness is the core of the Miraval philosophy. In everything we do, we encourage our guests and homeowners to live in the present moment, conscious of the unique intersection of mind, body, and spirit. Miraval can be the catalyst for a healthy lifestyle change, the escape and support through challenging times, or simply somewhere to rest, reflect and re-energize to begin the next chapter in one’s life story. For most of our guests, the Miraval experience is nothing less than a life-changing and life re-affirming moment.
