4 stars to this fitness and spa vacation. The town of St George is very quaint, just 1.5 hours from Las Vegas. Great area, safe, quiet and wonderful mountain views. Unique coffee spots, shopping and of course near Target and the basics. The daily hikes are outstanding. Couldn't ask for better scenery. They have day trip options too, I went... More

Went for two weeks, excellent. Hiking was amazing..Spa was very good. Great massages. Food was very good. The other guests very friendly. The morning hikes were great, rooms very clean. I had one own room, wouldn't want to share.

I just returned from my 4th stay at Movara (I had previously been when it was Biggest Loser Utah and Fitness Ridge). I have already booked my next three stays. This a great place. The food is very good (Chef Sam is such a sweet man who is great at his job) and quite filling considering it's between 1200 and... More

I first read about Movara on SpaCritic.com and it had great reviews here and other sites and I wanted to try it out. I am glad I did. The staff was great. The location perfect and the facilities were amazing. Saint George is a great little city. They offer great outdoor activities. The place was well decorated and well run.

I just got back from my 3rd stay in 5 years at Movara. It was nice to see a lot of familiar faces who helped me get started on my weightloss journey in 2010. I can't say enough nice things about how caring and dedicated everyone is. The trainers are amazing and really know how to motivate you to work... More

I was at the Movara for three weeks this summer and I would go back again in a heartbeat. I would have extended my stay if it were not for work commitments. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hikes were awesome and challenged me (in a good way). The facility was great and I felt well taken care of.... More

Unlike most people at the resort, we went mainly to spend time with our daughter, we did not go with any specific expectations. What we found was a lovely place with guests from all walks of life and physical abilities. The program was rigorous but still enjoyable and really pushed us beyond what we thought our limits were. The staff... More

I visited this resort during the week of June 14, 2015. It was a week I can never forget! While I never thought I could accomplish all of the things put before me, the friendly, encouraging support of the staff, trainers, and other people in attendance pushed me to reach goals I never thought I could reach.

Today I'm 1/2 lb away from that goal. Furthermore, the immense mental, emotional & spiritual achievements I have attained are... More

The resort is all about fitness both in the way of very healthy and delicious food and an exercise program you can take home with you. You will lose weight and get educated about how to continue to lose and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I never knew I could feel so good. Todd M
