Plan Your Spa Services
We recommend booking your spa services at least 3 weeks prior to your arrival. A Miraval Advisor will help you schedule services by phone once you have determined what you are interested in experiencing during your stay. In-room service is available for many treatments. All spa services may be booked prior to your arrival by calling 800.232.3969, or during your stay with Guest Services. Arrival Time: Please arrive at the Spa at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled service. This will allow you time to check in, shower, change into Spa attire, and relax before your therapist greets you. Please note that services for late arrivals will end at the scheduled time.

MIRAVAL FOR THE DAY
You don’t have to be staying overnight at Miraval to enjoy our amazing spa services and wellness activities. Sometimes all you need or want is a few hours away to recharge.
With a focus on sustainability, the new spa’s luxury is not about excess, opulence, or lavishness but rather embraces the mantra “Life Enhancing Minimalism”.
Working in harmony with renowned Mithun Architects and Clodagh Design – the same team who helped create the Villas at Miraval that completely sold out in fall of 2011 – Miraval crafted a physical environment that reinforces our luxury spa’s connection to the earth, creating a seamless blend of indoor and outdoor relaxation spaces.

Design and architecture are not just disciplines
ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN
The Miraval Life in Balance Spa is a luxury spa that mirrors an authentic experience of the Arizona desert through its strong connection to the spirit of its rugged landscape. On the entrance wall of the spa building, there is a giant symbol in oxidized steel and healing copper with a turquoise stone center, announcing the approach to the gate to wellness.
All the senses and elements have been enlisted in a cavalcade of design and natural elements. A trough filled with highly tactile pebbles - called a ziggurat – and a giant bowl of round stones, welcomes and encourages guests to build cairns of the kind which dot the desert landscape. The welcome walkway leads to a long reflecting pool of water which reflects the Arizona sky where one will find an outdoor haven of fragrant native plantings; sage, wild lavender, and deer grass. An intimate view of the Catalina Mountains, fortifying in its beautiful simplicity is on view from a plush chaise, the ever changing sunset reflected on the huge glazed wall. In the evening, a fire bowl is lit, symbolizing the sense of community and shared experience that is key to Miraval.
A smoke grey concrete pad at the ancient wood door creates a threshold to the reception hall. On one side the orientation desk is clad with a twenty five foot slice of a fallen cedar tree. Behind it a corrugated papiermache art wall by Louise Crandell vibrates with the intense color of oxidized copper, a native metal. The massive stucco walls of the spa are colored the rich tone of mesquite bark, blending into the desert. Inviting chairs and sofas are grouped in front of a metal clad two sided fireplace. A huge glass wall offers ever changing views of the Catalina Mountains. To the side of the orientation/reception desk, light flickers mysteriously, casting shadows over a graphite glass wall, from a lit water trough at its base. A vast portal lined with aged reclaimed cedar leads to the spa treatment rooms.
