The Miraval Life in Balance Spa at Monarch Beach Resort offers more than 70 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, 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 Café.
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 programs, according to Steven A. Rudnitsky, Miraval Group president & chief executive officer.
“The Miraval Life in Balance Spa at Monarch Beach Resort offers the most popular of Miraval Tucson’s signature treatments and programs,” he said. “I expect that a visit to Monarch Beach will inspire many guests to visit Tucson for the complete Miraval experience.”
Moreover, Rudnitsky said Monarch Beach and future Miraval spas draw on local surroundings to create unique experiences for guests.
The new Miraval Life in Balance Spa offers Miraval Tucson’s NÂGA and Shamana-Karma treatments; Ayurvedic, energy and body renewal rituals; and new treatments that incorporate coastal-inspired ingredients, including sea salt, crystal salt stones, algae and marine muds.
Selected Miraval Tucson signature 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.
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.
Monarch Beach Resort will be operated by Starwood as a St. Regis through May 31, 2016, at which point it will rebranded as Monarch Beach Resort and operated independently by KSL Resorts.
