My husband and I welcomed in 2020 at Movara Fitness Resort. For health reasons, we badly needed a jump start to resume a regular exercise program and to lose weight. Movara provided just what we needed to start the new year. The food was delicious, the exercise challenging, lectures were informative, and spa services helpful. The staff and fellow campers were great. We will return in March, but this time for a two week stay.

On a whim, I decided to visit Movara for a week just prior to Thanksgiving 2019. It was a great experience, and I expect I'll head back for another week in the future. Upon arrival, I was nervous about the "no caffeine" policy. I drank 10-12 cans of diet soda per day for probably 20 years, and while I'd tried to quit in the past, it never worked. So I had hoped Movara would finally force me to quit caffeine, along with losing a little weight, and hiking in beautiful St. George, UT. Movara did not disappoint. As many have said, the morning hikes are the best. The guides are wonderful. There are usually 3 groups (easy, medium, hard), and each group has 3 guides who break up, 1 in the front, 1 in the middle, 1 in the back. So matter where you fall within your group, there is a guide nearby. The hikes were beautiful, challenging (in the hard group at least), and a great way to start the day. The stretch class before breakfast was also fantastic. Keep in mind, Movara is basically a full-day fitness bootcamp. Everything is scheduled and planned out. This is a fitness facility first, and a spa later. There is time at night for spa services, but there isn't any lounging around at the pool here. The food was good, it's shocking how they keep you to about 1200 calories/day with such hearty and tasty food. No, it's not the best food you've ever eaten, but it is tasty, and healthy, and keeps you full. The staff is awesome. Super friendly, super supportive, super positive. I met some wonderful people. My biggest shock upon arrival was how many people at Movara were return visitors. I'd say at least 80% of the guests were returners, and the vast majority of them came for multiple week stays annually, if not 2-3 times per year! That should say something! My biggest suggestion to Movara would be that some of the classes and lectures seemed to be thrown together at the last minute, while others were thoroughly planned out. It was clear to me that curriculum for all the lectures and plans for all the classes should be drawn up and implemented. Overall, I was very pleased with my stay. I lost some fat, gained some muscle, and I'm now caffeine free for the first time in my life, and feeling good. Thanks Movara!

Lovley room on 1st floor, great walk in shower with railings, very good food which is totally well balanced and nutritious, mature and experienced hiking guides, friendly staff and the lectures on exercise, nutrition and mobility are over the top!!!! My husband and I have been coming here for more than 10 years and try to come for one week 2x per year. We love April and November. It is wonderful to know that you can hike, attend and participate in classes and lose weight. How nice to go on vacation and not gain weight!!! We returned home to Phoenix feeling 'reset' and well. Great place.

The morning hikes are awesome with a hike option to fit anyone's level. The afternoon workouts are energizing and finishing in the pool is perfect. The food is healthy and full of flavor. The rooms and accommodations and amenities are really good and of course, the instructors and staff make the entire stay very pleasant and fun. This part of Utah is absolutely stunning in views, geology and a perfect outdoor playground. It is why I keep coming back!

Recently returned from spending 7 weeks there and it was amazing. The property and facilities, the staff, and the program are fantastic. Whether it's hiking, biking, swimming or the gym - you will find something to challenge you and enjoy it in the process. The meals are excellent and can't be rivaled by other area properties of a similar nature. Once you experience all they have to offer - you will return!
