With homage to the opening of the long awaited movie and Oprah favorite, “Eat, Pray, Love,” by Elizabeth Gilbert, Miraval Resort and Spa (the other Oprah fav) is offering some exciting opportunities. You too, can set out on your own personal journey “to explore the art of pleasure, the art of devotion and, the art of balancing the two.” While watching Julia Roberts reliving Gilbert’s steps gallivanting from eating in Italy to praying in India to loving in Indonesia, you will be inspired and uplifted to set out on your own journey. Unlike Gilbert, you don’t have to travel across the globe to receive these insights and gifts.
At Miraval Arizona, you can find it all in one place.
Here are a few special offerings to align you with the spirit of the movie. Picture yourself experiencing the Art of Pleasure with an Italian flair, the Art of Devotion, with Indian rituals and the Art of Balancing the two in an Indonesian-inspired surroundings.
One is “A Night in Italy” with Executive Chef Chad Leuthje and Executive Sous Chef Justin Cline. Indulge yourself in the gourmet cuisine of Miraval, with world-renowned chefs who will create an authentic Italian dinner accompanied by wine from Italian vineyards.

Picture yourself being whisked off on an adventure in India as you are swept away by the warmth of Miraval’s signature Abhyanga inspired ancient healing massage. Herb infused oils are gently warmed and lightly massaged into the skin using friction strokes. As the oils penetrate the skin, toxins and impurities are released, reducing tension held within muscles and soothing the nervous system. You’ll experience a sense of overall well-being and harmony as your body’s natural balance has been restored.
Bring yourself back to mindfulness with the leading edge yoga offerings at Miraval. Experience a new sense of balance and grounding when you participate in the package with an individual yoga/meditation private consultation. Rediscover yourself, while immersing in the Balinese inspired design.

Miraval is so brilliantly designed by award winning Clodagh all other spas pale in comparison! As a design aficionado, I must admit that this place has exceeded my expectations of what can be done in a desolate desert environment like Tucson. With indigenous plantings and the skillful enhancement of the unique setting, I awakened each morning to breathtaking views of the mountain rage. The view was so spectacular; it appeared to be like a mat painting on a movie set and my accommodations were near perfection. (Especially the beds!)
Here is a vision statement by the designer that aligns perfectly with the Miraval philosophy:
“To enhance life and spirit through timeless, responsible design… total design.
Based on the 4C’s of design, total design aims to contemplate the space, cleanse it of unnecessary items while clarifying all goals, needs and desires thereby creating a space that is unique and timeless. Total design is about serenity and simplicity, open spaces and clean contemporary lines.
“A space cannot be truly beautiful unless it functions in harmony with who we are… it’s about pleasure: discovering what pleases us and creating an environment that will celebrate those qualities and sustain us”. Clodagh
The end result of this dream-like spa environment fulfilled the vision of the designer’s intentions. While a guest at Miraval, your life and spirit will be enhanced. With serenity, simplicity and harmony, the sacred spaces of Miraval will enrich your life along with all the offerings and activities. Amidst the peace and tranquility there are so many options and unique programs, many guests come back again and again to experience their signature programs, like the Balanced Living, the Equestrian Experience, the master teachers and gifted experts. In addition, Andrew Weil, MD is creating an integrative Wellness Program for a total life changing experience.
