Third time I visited this spa. Liked the new facilities and additional education lectures. Jen, the life coach is great. The food was excellent and the addition of salad bar was great too although I questioned why the calories of the salads we ate plus the dressing put on were not being added to the total amount of calories we...

I spent 2 weeks at Movara in order to recharge my fitness after an injury set me back. To be able to focus solely on fitness while they make sure every other need is met, is such a luxury. While I'm enjoying a morning stretch in the court, they are making me a delicious breakfast, while I'm out hiking those... More

Want to change your life? Attitude or just refresh and reboot? Book at Movara. The place is life-changing and a real confidence-booster.

I seriously cannot say enough good things about this wonderful “bubble world”. It is one of my favorite places in the world. From the couch potato who hasn’t stepped foot on a treadmill in their life to the tri-athlete, it doesn’t matter your age, size, or physical ability, this place is for everyone! This was my 3rd trip back and... More

I had a transformational experience my first trip, in 2012, that began an incredible fitness journey for me. Not only did I quit smoking after 30 years, but I went on to lose 70 pounds - This was my second visit to Movara Fitness Resort and as hard as it can be to imagine, it was even better the second...

I couldn't possibly say enough about this place. The surroundings are magnificent. The food is great.....but the people are reason enough to keep returning. The staff are the best I have ever come across. If I HAD to find a negative it would be that I wish they had an all day or twice daily hiking option....& everyone I was... More

The staff are enthusiastic, knowledgeable and caring. The fitness facilities are great and the hikes inspiring! I had to see a doctor while I was there (nothing serious) and the owner (Guy) not only drove me 30 minutes to my appointment but insisted on waiting for me to drive me back! I liked the size of the resort, not to... More

I went here to lose a little weight and jump start a healthy eating plan. I left with so much more. I had absolutely NO issues with this resort at all. The exercise was appropriately tough according to individual fitness levels, fun was incorporated into it. The food was excellent, the accommodations were everything that you needed. The staff and...
