Zen Time: A Miraval Spa is Coming to Southern California

St_Regis_Spa_Entrance_Opt1A_v2We have good news for LA-based destination spa lovers: Miraval, one of the best destination spas in the world, is headed to sunny Southern California.  

Miraval Group is bringing into tony spa and wellness brand to Orange County with the opening of the Miraval Life in Balance Spa at Monarch Beach Resort. 

What should you expect? That would be 70 (yes, you read that right) of the signature treatments developed at the company’s flagship Miraval Resort & Spa near Tucson, Arizona, each designed to “awaken the senses, create balance and promote a sense of well-being.”

The facility encompasses 24 treatment rooms, spa suites, boutique, a Drybar, Deborah Lippmann Nail Salon and relaxation and tranquility zones. It is part of a $40 million renovation of the resort’s 400 rooms and public spaces that will introduce five new dining concepts and an expanded pool and pool bar.

Miraval-inspired healthy menu items are available at Monarch Beach Resort’s restaurants, including the new Miraval Spa Cafe. 

The April opening kicks off a Miraval expansion program that includes development of full-service Miraval resorts that offer immersive wellness experiences in key destination markets and Miraval Life in Balance Spas that offer many of the brand’s signature wellness program.

Guests will find Miraval Tucson’s NВGA and Shamana-Karma treatments, including: ayurvedic, energy and body renewal rituals; and new treatments that incorporate coastal-inspired ingredients, including sea salt, crystal salt stones, algae and marine muds. Select wellness programs are offered, including Mindful Stress Mastery, Mindful Eating and Mindfulness at Miraval. Custom yoga and body movement studios in the spa’s new Body Mindfulness Center feature the brand’s Cardio Drumming, Mindful Spinning, Aerial Yoga and Floating Mediation programs. 

New coastal-inspired programs include Beachside Meditation, Zen Boot Camp on the Beach, Sunset Yoga and Authentic Connections. Each takes advantage of the resort’s oceanfront location in Dana Point. 

Specialists from Miraval Tucson, including Wellness Counselor Anne Parker, Exercise Physiologist Andrew Wolf and Healers Pam Lancaster and Dr. Tim Frank, will make regular visits to the new spa to offer an even greater number of signature Miraval programs. Spa memberships are offered to local residents. 

Got it? Now it’s time to zen out!
