Wellness Redefined

Nestled in the Sonoran Desert, just outside Scottsdale, CIVANA is a destination wellness resort that offers a holistic experience to a wider audience of wellness travelers.

We do this through our four pillars: Movement, Spa, Nourishment, and Discovery.

Movement: We believe an active body is a happy body. Every day, every guest at CIVANA is invited to participate in more than a dozen complimentary movement and fitness classes - everything from a morning hike and aerial yoga to myofascial release and TRX training. There's something for everyone. (And if not moving is your idea of wellness, we have three pools on property, all within reach of a snack or cocktail. See, that's wellness too.)

Spa: CIVANA's state-of-the-art spa has 22 treatment rooms offering a wide range of therapeutic and rejuvenating treatments. Our kneippe walk, Sanarium, Watsu therapy pool, 25-meter pool, sundeck, salon, and more you will leave healthier and happier than when you arrived.

Nourishment: CIVANA hosts two on-property restaurants, Terras and Cafe Meto. From grain bowls, smoothies, cold-pressed juices, and wellness shots at Cafe Meto to farm-to-table, veggie-forward entrees at Terras, Chef Justin Macy and his culinary team present really good food that is also really good for you.

Discovery: At the core of how we understand wellness is the commitment to provide paths of change, growth, and discovery, be it an appreciation for the natural beauty around us, new experiences or relationships, or a deeper understanding of the self. Whether your version of wellness is a glass of wine with a friend or meditation on the yoga lawn, we are committed to providing the possibility for you to checkout changed, if even just a little - to leave more than when you arrived.

Our Wellness Philosophy

Wellness is often understood as the balance between healthiness and happiness. However, more often than not, wellness becomes solely defined by healthiness alone, leaving it feeling beneficial, but also unattainable, stringent, and even joyless. That's why our wellness philosophy has an intentional bias for happiness. Like other destination wellness resorts, we have the healthy aspects covered - nutrition, fitness, rest, healing. The CIVANA difference is that we take to heart the and that separates "healthy and happy." We never want to forget that the wellness journey is as personal as one's own happiness - one's unique sense of wellbeing, joy, and fulfillment.

At CIVANA, we like to say that wellness is that which helps us to live "yes and" - that is, to become more healthy and more happily alive.
