USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards has named CIVANA – the Scottsdale area’s newest wellness resort – among the Best Wellness Retreats and Resorts nationwide, as voted by readers. CIVANA earned the No. 7 spot of 20 resorts listed in the same category this year.
CIVANA made its debut on March 6, 2018 as the first sustainable wellness resort to open in Greater Phoenix. Spread across 20+ private scenic acres adjacent to North Scottsdale, CIVANA was born out of a desire to make wellness more approachable for the everyday traveler. Less intimidating (by design) than other destination wellness resorts, CIVANA offers each guest the flexibility to create an impactful, immersive experience that best suits them – from devout students of wellness who want to dive deeper to those who simply want to relax and unplug.
CIVANA unveiled a brand-new spa in December 2018, completing the four pathways of CIVANA’s wellness model – Healthy Cuisine, Movement, Discovery, and the Healing Arts. Centered around a rich heritage of sustainability and a holistic menu of distinct, fully customized treatments, the two-story, 22,000 square-foot spa is an integral part of the CIVANA experience. The state-of-the-art spa facility centeres around the theme of “healing through water” and features 23 treatment areas including one Watsu® therapy pool, two couples treatment rooms, three wet treatment rooms including a Vichy shower, five facial rooms, and 14 massage rooms. There is also a communal area of hydrotherapy immersions – the Aqua Vitality Circuit – that includes a European-designed Kneipp hot/cold wading pool, a Tepidarium therapeutic soaking pool, a cold deluge shower, and a five-climate KLAFS SANARIUM® - the only one in the continental U.S.
CIVANA also features 184 spacious guest rooms and suites, premier fitness and movement space, healthy cuisine dining options, two pools, and more. Amenities include daily access to distinct wellness programming, concierge service, nearby excursion opportunities, function space, and shuttle services to Carefree and Cave Creek outlets.
