Miraval Opens First Location Outside of Arizona
Miraval has always held a special place in my spa heart. I can’t put my finger on what set it apart from other five-star destination spas, but something did. And now more people can experience that Miraval magic with the opening of Miraval Life in Balance Spa at Monarch Beach Resort in Orange County, California.
The Miraval Life in Balance Spa at Monarch Beach Resort offers more than 70 of the signature treatments developed at the company’s flagship Miraval Resort & Spa near Tucson, Arizona, each designed to “awaken the senses, create balance and promote a sense of well-being.”
The facility encompasses 24 treatment rooms, spa suites, boutique, Drybar, Deborah Lippmann Nail Salon and relaxation and tranquility zones. It is part of a $40 million renovation of the resort’s 400 rooms and public spaces that will introduce five new dining concepts and an expanded pool and pool bar.
Miraval-inspired healthy menu items are available at Monarch Beach Resort’s restaurants, including the new Miraval Spa Café.
The April opening kicks off a Miraval expansion program that includes development of full-service Miraval resorts that offer immersive wellness experiences in key destination markets, and Miraval Life in Balance Spas that offer many of the brand’s signature wellness programs.
Monarch Beach, and future Miraval spas, will draw on local surroundings to create unique experiences for guests.
The new Miraval Life in Balance Spa offers Miraval Tucson’s NÂGA (one of my favorite treatments) Shamana-Karma treatments; Ayurvedic, energy and body renewal rituals; and new treatments that incorporate coastal-inspired ingredients, including sea salt, crystal salt stones, algae and marine muds.
Selected Miraval Tucson signature wellness programs are also offered, including Mindful Stress Mastery, Mindful Eating and Mindfulness at Miraval. Custom yoga and body movement studios in the spa’s new Body Mindfulness Center feature the brand’s Cardio Drumming, Mindful Spinning, Aerial Yoga and Floating Mediation programs.
New coastal-inspired programs include Beachside Meditation, Zen Boot Camp on the Beach, Sunset Yoga and Authentic Connections.
Specialists from Miraval Tucson, including Wellness Counselor Anne Parker, Exercise Physiologist Andrew Wolf and Healers Pam Lancaster and Dr. Tim Frank, will make regular visits to the new spa to offer an even greater number of signature Miraval programs. Spa memberships are available for local residents.
Monarch Beach Resort will be operated by Starwood as a St. Regis through May 31, 2016, at which point it will rebranded as Monarch Beach Resort and operated independently by KSL Resorts.
