I just returned from a 5-day stay at Miraval as I had the opportunity to be there for the Hay House event with Louise Hay and Cheryl Richardson. From the moment I arrived until my last minute at Miraval I found myself surrounded by peace, love and happiness. I absolutely loved everything about the resort. The rooms and the gardens are magnificent. The bed is wonderful. I wanted to take mine home! The food is very healthy and delicious and the activities and the spa experiences were just amazing. Most of all what makes Miraval so special is the people working there. The staff is very friendly, ready to help, accommodating and gracious and I would like to thank all of them for making me feel really at home. I will return next year and I have already decided that I will make Miraval a yearly ritual to pamper myself with good self-care.

My wife and I spent a wonderful couple of days at a Miraval, a great Spa near Tucson AZ. Initially I was a bit skeptical when Andrea mentioned we were booked there - after all, Spa Resorts are normally for the Girls! However within 4 hours of our arrival I was hooked! Excellent food (heathy-but full of flavor) , a smoothie/coffee bar, a great male sauna/swim/steam/jacuzzi area and lots of male-friendly activities (mountain biking/hiking/golf/Horse riding and outdoor adventure challenges to get the heart-rate pumping!)

The Staff were friendly and laid-back- helping to get into the "chilled-out" Zone

One interesting aspect were the more ZEN-focussed activities- e.g drumming/healthy eating - I (surprisingly) really enjoyed these sessions- great expert speakers and a nice "group" feel with the other guests

I almost forgot - My wife Loved the whole experience too!

We'll be back!

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the mountains are a great choice!

Miraval is all about opening minds and trying new things and it sounds as though you were able to do just that. We will hope to see you back again soon!

You pay a lot for this place and I do not see the value. The meals are so small its ridiculous. They put the calories on everything. For dinner the appetizer and the main meal totalled 280 calories. You can always ask for double servings or 2 meals but what the hell. My friend and I had gas all the time and we could not figure it out. The quality of the food was good but the variety was limited and very repetitous. Service was iffy, one evening it took over an hour and a half to eat dinner. The rooms were what I would consider a 4 star. Some staff were friendly others were not. The spa services were lacking in service and expensive. No showing you around the spa. The masseuse was late and finished early. Every free program I went to it seemed like it was an advertisement for other services and they provided very little information during the free class. So basically I felt like the only way I could get anything out of the services was to pay for them. So on top of the high per day cost there were $75 each up to $150 each (most an hour or two) and hundreds of dollars if you wanted spa treatments. Given the amount it costs per day I could stay at a five star hotel and have five star meals. The free activities did not compensate for the mark up. So expect to pay 5 star prices for a four star property.The gym classes I took were good.

An added note - spa services of $150 a day were suppose to be included in the package. I was specifically speaking to the prebook services by email about this credit and booking my services. They failed to tell me the service I booked was not included in the credit so I ended up not only paying $400 more but losing my spa credit. Upon speaking to guest services all I got was well if you read the brochure in detail you would have basically figured it out. The brochure is large, I dont know why it could not have been mentioned in the emails. I guess deception brings in higher revenues for them in the short term but I wont be back in the long run.

Hi there,
I'm so sorry to hear that your Miraval experience did not meet your expectations. Miraval is all about choice and our dining experience can be as limiting or as robust as you choose. As a wellness spa resort, we do list our calories on our menu items which many of our guests find helpful as they make food choices throughout their stay. I'm glad you enjoyed the fitness classes you attended. As you can imagine, in our complimentary wellness lectures, our specialists can give general information that would be applicable to everyone but what we find most helpful is when our guests take the time to sit down in a private session with one or more of our specialists (i.e. a private session with our nutritionist who can design a personalized plan based on your tastes, dietary restrictions, and lifestyle). We strive to meet each guest on an individual level to create not only the most memorable vacation but also to help you bring wellness tools back into your life at home.
I would be more than happy to discuss your stay with you personally. Please contact my office to speak with me or another member of our Executive team. We are always looking for ways to improve the Miraval experience for our guests.
Regards,
Michael

Spent 4 days at Miraval with a close friend and we both loved it. We were both exhausted from our high stress jobs and found the environment, people, food and classes of Miraval to be just what we needed. We wished we had been there for a week or more! The food was excellent and varied, we appreciated that many of the instructors in the exercise classes were inspiring older women in amazing shape, we learned a lot from lectures and conversations with Anne, Victoria, Andrew and Sheryl, equine experience gave us insights into our urge to control things and need to focus and listen, Mattie and Alyssa helped us as yoga novices and reminded us to breathe, and we enjoyed treatments that included shiatsu (Rebecca was great) and watsu. We did not like our first room much (it was too dark) but were able to move to a nicer room with a peaceful patio. Suggestions: include a guide to the vegetation, birds and animals in each room; open the new yoga studio to the outside (thoughwe think there might be noise from the road); have a good quality telescope on the property to look at the stars, have good book assigned for each week and have a reading group discussion one evening, perhaps have beaded jewelry and tile making so people can make something as a memento.

From everything to the food and spa treatments, this is a first class place! This is an all-inclusive resort with fresh, healthy food (you might be able to find a Diet Coke behind the counter at the juice bar). Each day you'll check the activity board and decide between many activities that include nutrition, health, exercise, adventure, etc. My favorite was the Equine Experience, which involves being around horses and trying to pick up a horses hoof (may sound easy, but these are spa horses....even if you're been around horses all your life, they may not pick their foot up if you're not focused!) An all around life changing experience for me mentally....hope your trip is just as relaxing as mine was!

Room Tip: Do the Equine experience!
