Nestled just outside of Scottsdale, CIVANA Wellness Resort & Spa is a playground of wellbeing. A destination wellness resort – recently ranked #3 on Travel + Leisure’s 2020 World’s Best Awards list for “Top 15 Domestic Spas” – invites guests to reconnect and reinvigorate their senses in places of natural beauty, with personalized wellness experiences and empathetic hospitality.

Centered around a holistic approach to wellbeing, CIVANA’s healing spa treatments, yoga, meditation, fitness classes, and inventive culinary experiences focus on a positive change that brings greater happiness, both physically and mentally. These offerings include a curated menu of spa treatments to help restore the body back to a natural state of balance, along with 8-10 wellness classes per day that touch on all four domains of wellbeing: physical, spiritual, emotional, and mental.

Embracing Nature’s Playground: Reimagined Wellness Programming
CIVANA has reimagined its signature wellness offerings to take greater advantage of nature’s inherent capacity for self-healing; from morning mediation in the rose garden, to twice daily desert hikes (weather permitting), to outdoor sunset spin classes, to sound bowl and star gazing sessions on the yoga lawn (all socially distanced), and more.

Enhanced Dining and Nourishment Experiences
Exciting, colorful, flavorful, and inventive are the words shaping CIVANA’s re-thought culinary offerings led by new Executive Chef Scott Winegard. Winegard, who spent years at buzzy plant-based restaurant group Matthew Kenney Cuisine, has taken over the CIVANA culinary experience with entirely new hyper-seasonal offerings at Seed, CIVANA’s cafe and specialty market open for breakfast and lunch, along with Terras, the resort’s signature dinner destination that offers a delightfully fresh and modern take on regionally inspired cuisine.

Reinvented Restorative Spa Treatments
CIVANA’s healing spa provides the highest level of service for its guests, offering a curated menu of restorative treatments and services. The Spa is currently staggering 60- and 90-minute treatments and limiting occupancy to further ensure the safety and wellbeing of guests and team members. Guests continue to have access to the resort’s signature Aqua Therapy Circuit, a journey through waters of varying temperatures in the European-designed Knepp hot/cold wading pool and Tepidarium therapeutic soaking pool. Access to the Aqua Therapy Circuit will be available by appointment only and limited to a 30-minute session per guest. The Spa’s saltwater lap pool along with its relaxation lounge will continue to be accessible to guests receiving treatments. A curated menu of light bites and refreshments will be available for poolside delivery.

Chopra Whole Health Retreat Lands at CIVANA
CIVANA guests will now have access to new classes and offerings inspired by the lifestyle teachings of Deepak Chopra and Team, including Ayurvedic Attunement – an experiential workshop focused on the six most important pillars of health and practical tools for leading a healthy and happy life. Chopra had chosen CIVANA Wellness Resort & Spa as its new home for all Chopra Whole Health retreats.
