Miraval welcomes guests who are 18 years of age or older.
ARRIVAL & DEPARTURE
Check-in time is 3 pm but guests may arrive on property as early as 11 am. Lunch is included and opens at 11:30 am. Upon check in, you will be given an orientation and tour of the property.
Check-out time is 11 am and we would be glad to store your luggage at Guest Services should you wish to remain on property until 2 pm. Lunch is included on the day of departure with meal service starting at 11:30 am. Late check-out is based on availability; however, please note that the last complimentary shuttle back to the Tucson International Airport departs at 2 pm from the resort.
COMPLIMENTARY AIRPORT SHUTTLE
Miraval provides complimentary airport shuttle service to/from Tucson International Airport. Please email email@example.com or call 800.815.3949 to share your airline carrier, flight number along with arrival and departure times. You must provide your air travel information at least 48 hours prior to arrival in order to utilize the complimentary airport shuttle van.
Upon arrival at the Tucson International Airport, proceed to the baggage claim area and a Miraval driver will be waiting at the bottom of the escalator with a sign showing your name. If you do not see a Miraval driver, please call the resort operator at 520.825.4000.
Departure vans leave at the top of the hour. The last complimentary shuttle departs the resort at 2 pm. Travel time to the airport is approximately 50 minutes so you will be scheduled to depart Miraval two hours before your flight time (for example: if your flight departs Tucson International Airport at 3:10pm, you will leave Miraval on the 1pm shuttle). The afternoon prior to your departure date you will receive a detailed voice mail in your guest room with your departure and luggage pickup time.
If the complimentary shuttle does not meet your needs, private car transportation may be arranged for an additional fee.
SCHEDULING ACTIVITIES, PRIVATE SESSIONS & SPA SERVICES
For maximum availability, we recommend that you schedule your activities, private sessions and spa services at least 3 weeks in advance of your stay. Our Miraval Advisors are available to answer all of your questions at 800.815.3949 Monday through Friday from 6am to 7pm and Saturday and Sunday from 8am to 5pm. Note: These hours are based on Arizona time. You may also email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your package includes resort credits, you may apply them toward any fee-based experience during your Miraval visit. Resort credits can be used for spa services, private sessions and classes and activities that have fees. These credits cannot be transferred between guests or toward future visits, toward purchases in the restaurant/bar, Raindance Pass Boutique, Spa Retail, online store, or toward tuition fees for Miraval immersions.
Book your fee-based experience prior to arrival by calling 800.815.3949 or during your stay with Guest Services.
CELL PHONE AND ELECTRONIC MEDIA POLICY - MIRAVAL MODE
Mindfulness is the core of the Miraval philosophy. In everything we do, we encourage our guests to live in the present moment, conscious of the unique intersection of mind, body and spirit. In order to foster a tranquil environment for all our guests, please understand and adhere to “Miraval Mode” during your visit with us.
Miraval Mode: Cell phones at Miraval should be kept on silent at all times and that talking and texting is only permitted in the comfort of your guest room, private patio, the Fountain Courtyard (located just outside guest services) and the parking lot outside of Raindance Pass Boutique. We understand that you may want to use your cell phone camera to capture your Miraval experience throughout your stay – please do! We encourage you to share on social media in the comfort of your guest room in between activities or at the end of your day. Also, in consideration of those around you, please refrain from using electronic devices to take notes in lectures/workshops. Complimentary notepads and pens are provided for your convenience.
I understand that I may be approached by a Miraval staff member to terminate cell phone usage in areas not designated for electronic devices. I will keep my mobile device on “silent” and be mindful of guests around me when using it in designated areas.
DEPOSIT & CANCELLATION POLICY
An advanced deposit of 50% of your total stay package is required to guarantee your reservation. For cancellations made more than 30 days prior to scheduled arrival date, you will receive a full refund of your advanced deposit. For cancellations made 21-30 prior to scheduled arrival date, your advanced deposit will be held for future use within the same calendar year. For cancellations made fewer than 21 days prior to scheduled arrival date, your advanced deposit will be forfeited.

24 hour notice is required to change or cancel without penalty. If these specialty programs are changed/cancelled within 24 hours of the start time, 100% of the experience fee will be charged to your bill.

GRATUITIES & TIPPING

Miraval is a smoke-free environment and we ask that you refrain from smoking in your guest room and all public areas. A fee of $375 will be assessed to remove smoke odor found in guest rooms.Villa rentals may be more. As the safety and efficacy of e-cigarettes have not been fully studied, this policy applies to e-cigarettes as well.

Retail purchases, a la carte food and beverage purchases and other services scheduled in addition to what is included in your package are subject to applicable taxes.
WHAT TO PACK
Arizona is known for its warm sunny days year round with a blanket of coolness in the desert morning and evenings. For maximum comfort we suggest layers of athletic or yoga wear during your day. Evening dining is resort casual and a light wrap or fleece for the cooler desert evening is suggested. All equestrian activities require long pants and closed toed shoes. Challenge activities require tennis shoes. Spa services such as Aqua Zen require a swimsuit and other services such as Thai massage require loose comfortable clothing. It is recommended you bring the following items: sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, yoga wear, workout clothing, swimsuit, running and hiking shoes, camera and journal. Check current weather conditions prior to arrival to pack accordingly.
