I would highly recommend anyone& everyone to experience Civana! The energy of this place is so positive & full of light. I truly felt a weight lifted off of me the second I walked into the lobby! The staff was amazing& so friendly, even though I was alone I never felt alone, everyone was so welcoming. The classes were fantastic, I definitely recommend the yoga nidra & wall yoga. The massage& facial were probably the best I've ever had! Definitely go see Jennifer for a facial& Marissa for a massage! I can't wait to get back to see them! & the food was absolutely amazing!!! This will become a regular place for me to recharge annually!

My brain was not born to resist cheesecake, so I was looking for a trip where I could reset my intention to eat healthier and lose some Covid weight. Civana is the place to go in order to relax and to let the real world fade away. The spa and exercise class activities made the time fly by fast. There was also a lecture on how to boost your immune system. The staff was friendly and took care to see your needs were met. The food included delicious smoothies (the Power Smoothie with dates and banana is highly recommended) eggs, chicken and salmon, so you're not paying a fortune for the privilege of crunching on carrots. And for breakfast, try the Spelt Waffle. Overall, Civana is the perfect sanctuary from the stress and anxiety created by the pandemic.

I live right down the road and decided to come for the weekend and was blown away by how amazing it was. I felt completely rejuvinated and de-stressed after 1 weekend there. The staff was incredible, the activities were perfect and I got the best sleep I have had in years. I will be bringing my entire staff here for a business retreat.

This was a girls wellness trip, 1st impression is amazing, clean fresh lobby and it smelled so so so good. Staffs are amazing, nice, courteous and very very helpful. Room and bed was super comfortable. Food was yum, healthy and not too pricey. Yoga classes fits the whole wellness idea, sound healing gave me goosebumps. The whole experience was amazing!! I can’t say enough ‘amazing’ about this resort. I will be coming back again with my family

I had the most incredible time, and incredible stay at Civana. It was like a wellness retreat that you would sign up for, but choose your own adventure style. There were tons of activities happening throughout each day that you could participate in. I do recommend signing yourself up in advance for the classes/hikes you want to go to because they do fill up fast! Our room was great, I slept like a rock for three nights straight. The guided hikes were awesome. The sound baths each night were really cool! I also attended an Inner Intelligence workshop with a woman named Amanda and it was one of my favorite things! The staff there is what really set this place apart, the nicest people! Lastly, the spa! They have a more private pool you can hang out at after your services, and I loved how quiet it was. All and all, if you’re looking to unplug and reset, this place is it. There were tons of people there by themselves as well- there’s so much to do and the property is breathtaking, so it would also be a great solo-vacay spot...if you’re into that kind of thing. Can’t wait to go back :)
