Mii amo, the award-winning destination spa located in Boynton Canyon, announces plans for an extensive renovation and expansion, scheduled to begin in January 2021. The last guests will depart on January 3, 2021 and a revitalized Mii amo will be unveiled in the spring of 2022.
Since opening in 2001, Mii amo has been embraced as a thought leader in the destination spa and wellbeing market through its programming, caliber of its professionals, service culture and the buildingsâ€™ architecture and design. â€œWe are committed to maintaining our leadership position in the destination spa space,â€ said Tracy Tang Limpe, an owner of Mii amo. â€œThis means investing in our people, programs and facilities.â€
â€œWhen we opened twenty years ago, a key objective was to create buildings and spaces that were distinctly of this place, reflecting the spirit of Boynton Canyon,â€ remarked Dana Tang, an owner of Mii amo and partner of Gluckman Tang Architects. Tang and her team were the original architects of Mii amo and are responsible for the design of the upcoming renovations and expansion. â€œWe seek to preserve the essence of Mii amoâ€™s design, while providing new feature spaces that further connect our guests to the landscape and the place,â€ Tang added.
Upon reopening, Mii amo will debut a collection of elevated experiences, including some designed to foster a deeper connection to the Native American and energetic perspectives of the region. New, enhanced movement and fitness studios and programs will speak to guestsâ€™ evolving tastes and priorities in the areas of physical fitness and health, further supporting Mii amoâ€™s commitment to whole-person wellbeing. A new indoor-outdoor signature restaurant with a state-of-the art kitchen will offer innovative culinary and nutrition programming. In addition to renovating the existing 16 casita rooms, new casita rooms and suites will be added. The casitas are arranged around private courtyards that create an intimate spa experience in a magnificent setting.
â€œThe goal of Mii amo â€˜2.0â€™ is not to change Mii amo, but to make it a better, more elevated version of itself,â€ stated Jim Root, the propertyâ€™s General Manager. â€œMii amo is beloved by its guests, who return year after year for unique treatments provided by incredible therapists. The essence of Mii amo will endure â€“ but with refreshed facilities.â€
During the time Mii amo is physically unavailable, guests are encouraged to stay connected through â€œPause & Journeyâ€ programming. New content and virtual events will be featured through email newsletters, social media and the website. "We are committed to building bridges, so our guests continue to be touched by the spirit of Mii amo until we reopen," says Root.
During the â€œPause & Journey,â€ select body treatments, skin care services, massage and other experiences will be provided by Mii amoâ€™s team of intuitive therapists at the destination spaâ€™s adjacent sibling, Enchantment Resort, through the newly created Spa Suites at Boynton Canyon. Guests will also enjoy exclusive access to multi-use areas where private consultations, astrology and other popular activities will be offered by the Mii amo staff. Fitness and mindfulness programs, including Morning Celebration, will be held in the new Canyon Studio at Enchantment Resort. â€œOur goal,â€ says Root, â€œis to preserve access to the physical and emotional connections for both Mii amo and Enchantment Resort guests while we undergo this journey for Mii amo.â€
â€œThrough this reinvestment in Mii amo, we acknowledge our guests and our team members and elevate our commitment to them,â€ finished Tang Limpe. â€œWe cannot wait to welcome new and loyal guests to our â€˜newâ€™ Mii amo in 2022.â€
