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. Food- I was... More

Last Sunday, May 17, I was 25.3% body fat. By the end of the week I was 23.2% body fat and 4.5 lbs lighter. I came to Movara a year ago this week with the goal to drop 21 lbs. 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

$10,000 and 4 weeks to lose 22 lbs is hardly a bargain, but the lessons picked up at Movara were invaluable. Parting with the money was painful but not nearly as difficult as hiking and working out 8 hours a day. Be prepared for blisters! Learning that it is possible to eat 1500 calories a day, to quit caffeine and... More

Had a good trip, I didn't have a lot of expectations and I was happy with the experience. The place definitely gets you moving and really helps you understand better eating...and how you can stay full on 1500 calories a day. Now some tips. The program really ends on the Saturday around noon - 2 pm. If I was told... More

My husband and I recently returned after our initial week 6 years ago. We realized we should have gone back sooner. We had a delightful week. We both worked really really hard and came home motivated to make some changes and keep up our progress. You will definitely get back all that you put into your time at Movara. There... More
