What Our Guests Say

  • I just left the most magical birthday celebration at the new CIVANA Resort & Spa. Traveling with my sister and mom, we spent the weekend enjoying the beauty and serenity that this sanctuary offers. We were welcomed by incredible staff that gave us comfort, relaxation and the best service.daynimo

  • Loved every single thing about Civana! The staff was eager to please, amenities can't be beat! Brand new spa was OUTSTANDING! We were offered a tour of the spa facility as soon as we arrived- which was a great introduction and kick-off to our stay. Fitness classes offered were exceptional and all included!...Kristina C.

  • This is a hidden gem in a quiet location in the valley. Just east of Carefree in the foothill, this property has been fully remodeled. Beautiful rooms with excellent beds, great views, excellent dining with one of the best chefs in the valley, and one of the best spas in the area.BrannonOhio

  • Civana far exceeded my expectations: The rooms are immaculate and comfortable, the grounds are beautiful, the classes and instructors were knowledgeable and caring. The staff was extremely helpful and welcoming. Civana is an excellent value. Highly recommended for a "Friends" or "Solo" stay. I will be back!Diane H.

  • Civana Resort was a great place to stay for NYE, with a free shuttle to nearby restaurants/bars. The room was spacious and wish it wasn't so cold outside because we would like to have walked around the grounds. The purified water was a great treat, along with the cool complimentary bottle. Bed was very comfortable with comfy pillows.Lisa C.

  • If you are looking for a wellness retreat without a strict schedule and crappy buffet meals, this is your spot. My stays at Civana have been life changing for me. Visited twice from NY in 2018 and I’ll be back in 2019 Every single staff member makes you feel like family. And the connections I made here have been incredible. I can’t wait for my next trip.

  • Stayed here several times and had a great experience every stay. Beautiful atmosphere and the classes, programming and healthy food options are terrific. Nice to come as a solo traveler too because you can meet really interesting people- especially if you participate in the activities they offer. The staff really cares about making sure you have a wonderful experience and you feel like a part of the family there by the time you leave. Excited to experience the spa. Loved the barre class especially. Can't wait to come back!Aly E.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed my spa vacation at Civanna. What a beautiful property with the most friendly and attentive staff. The classes at Civanna were really fun. We took yoga, art, and cooking classes while there (all included!!). The instructors were amazing and we especially enjoyed the sound bath. The spa is definitely something you can’t miss. The treatments were top notch, and the facility is breathtaking. As for the food, we were so impressed with the healthy selections and quality at both the cafe and restaurant. I am really looking forward to coming back for another visit. Thanks CivannaLaura M.

  • Spa was amazing! Staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is calming. They offered a large selection of classes which I didn't get to participate in but would love to the next time we go back. Great hiking minutes away.dkjones4

  • Four busy friends booked this trip to spend quality time reconnecting and rejuvenating. Cubans exceeded our expectations. The staff was friendly and helpful. The daily actives were posted on a board and you were free to sign up for any and all. We participated in morning hikes, yoga, guided meditation and pickle ball. The fabulous spa is just opening. The food in the cafe was our fav, nutritious and tasty. We booked for next year as we checked out. Highly recommend it sassychicmom

  • Civana is a lifestyle retreat escape. They had a full offering of activities every day, from yoga to shamanic journey and watercolor painting. The yoga class I attended was great. I'm usually skeptical to attend yoga at a resort because they often "dumb it down", but this class had good energy and was challenging.The grounds are really beautifully landscaped, with an abundance of desert plants...
