“Great experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

A great spa, food outstanding and all you can eat – very health conscious. You would expect that being a spa. All of the staff were friendly and attentive. If you are looking for a health spa, this is the place to go. Try the Zip line. The rooms appear to be built in clusters around the property. Recommend low numbers i.e. 200s, 300s, 600 was too far away from the main building. This matters if it happens to be cold. In the spa, Noela, gave a great massage. Ray, the driver, was a fine gentleman interesting to talk to and made the trip to and from the airport speed by. The entire staff was great.

When you combined these two the experience is magical. The nurturing, relaxing and calming environment of Miraval along with all of the spa services, classes, lectures and food was once again outstanding. The Entrepreneurs Guide to Enlightenment is an amazing process developed and facilitated by two incredible individuals, Alex Giorgio and Heidi Nobantu Saul. If you are an Etype (go to the website to see if you are) and you are open to a process that can create tremendous positive change in your life then this is for you.

I was privileged enough to join more than 100 other women on the Louise Hay/ Cheryl Richardson Experience your Good Now retreat. Miraval is an incredible place where you come home to yourself. Carefree walking around in bathrobes listening to the echos of nature, enveloping you in the spirit of unity and love, has made this one of my favourite destinations. The amazing beds are like no other, the exceptional food, relaxation, therapy, spa treatments, horses hikes but to mention a few, this is one place I didn't want to leave!

Thank you Miraval team for helping me come home!

Room Tip: First section.....room 100's . You have less traffic

Miraval is a magical place where you have no choice but to relax and live in the moment. The staff are friendly and excited to help with all your needs. I went alone for a weekend away and l met new friends, accomplished new challenges and was able to relax and enjoy nature. I am already planning my next trip back. So much to do and see. Food is healthy and fantastically fresh!

Room Tip: All rooms are fantastic encircled around the main pool area so all have a great location.

Miraval works for friends, men, women, or a lone guest. That is not true of many spas. One can partake of all the traditional services and classes offered at spas. In addition, one can horseback ride, hike, bike, golf, zip line, rock climb, and many other adventurous thrills. One can also partake of interesting guest speakers in the evening.

Miraval is a destination resort that has it all and more
My wife and I have just returned from another memorable trip to Miraval, this is an extremely well run full service destination resort spa that will have you returning time and time again. They have so many services to choose from you can fill your days and still never do everything in just one visit.
I highly recommend signing up for a challenge course and the Equine experience, each person learns something different about themselves yet we are all doing the same activity. Miraval has something for everybody, you custom tailor your own experience and guest services will help you with any questions and scheduling appointments.

This resort has a casual vibe that will make you feel very comfortable; guests can even come to dinner in spa robes. The accommodations are clean and comfortable, they offer many choices. The food is great at every meal, and the restaurant staff is fast and friendly.
The spa has been renovated, the staff is very experienced friendly and helpful, there is no such thing as a bad treatment in this spa. Miraval can also be a place you can come to heal your life, this resort experience is all about You. Try one of their spiritual services it just may be the thing that helps shed your pain and restore your spirit, I recommend the Spirit Flight with Dr. Tim and Shuniya Sound Therapy with Pam, try Aqua Zen after one of these services and relax the rest of the day. Don’t miss evening meditation with Mattie; it’s a wonderful way to end your day.

Enjoy!

Miraval was such an incredible experience. This was my first time and I hope it was not the last. Every single detail is considered for Miraval guests. From the minute you get on the van from the airport, they greet you with five star service. The incredible staff is ready to serve at any moment to make your stay the best that it can be. The lectures, classes are so great - and every one of the people who run them are 100% focused and tuned in to the needs of the guest. They also have a subtle way of including everyone in the discussion and getting everyone to participate. The morning hikes are glorious and the grounds and everything else are simply beatiful. The room was immaculate, beautiful and so peaceful with a little outdoor patio. You are barely in the room so it doesn't matter anyway. The food was plentiful and absolutely delicious as well - not to mention smoothie and coffee bar - nice! The horse experience with Wyatt was unique and had a real impact on me that I won't soon forget. The spa services were average - Christie's facial was excellent and was the best service that I had. Can't say enough about Miraval - they really know how to do it right. And, as a solo traveler, i met the greatest people and we had some meals together and have exchanged information to stay in touch. It is a magical place and one that I will not forget.

Room Tip: Doesn't really matter - loved my room right by the pool but you cannot go wrong here. you will...
