Destination wellness resort Civana in Arizona, US, has completed its nearly $US50m renovation with the grand opening of its new spa.

Centred around a heritage of sustainability and a holistic menu of fully customised treatments, the two-story, 22,000sq ft spa offers guests a progressive journey toward wellness grounded in the principles of flexibility, attainability, and innovation.

The spa features 28 treatment areas including one Watsu therapy pool; two couples treatment rooms; three wet treatment rooms, including a Vichy shower; five facial rooms; and 13 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 US.

All hydrotherapy modalities are designed to help increase circulation and promote relaxation without adding strain, and to boost immunity.

Guests can select from an extensive menu of treatments at the spa, which draws inspiration from varying schools of practice and tradition. From ancient healing methods to modern approaches, each guest is encouraged to explore different types of spa experiences as part of their wellness path.

“Our goal at Civana is to offer guests options and flexibility in all aspects of wellness, including at the spa,” said CEO Maggie Lang. “Wellness means different things to each person, and the addition of our new innovative spa allows our guests to customise an experience that is right for them.”

Treatments include signature Wellbeing Therapies that blend a variety of modalities for a more holistic experience; dedicated facial skincare and massage therapies; Energy and Eastern Therapies such as Reiki, Thai massage, and Craniosacral; Body and Water Therapies to promote head-to-toe wellness such as Sonoran Rain Dance; and Spa Journeys for Two.

In addition to dedicated men’s and women’s relaxation areas, guests can also enjoy a 1,600sq ft relaxation lounge with an outdoor balcony offering vistas of Black Mountain and Sonoran Desert sunsets.

The spa also boasts an Olympic outdoor lap pool and sun deck with healthy food and beverage options, including a healthy organic cocktail menu. There is also a boutique retail shop and salon offering all-natural nail and hair services and curated products.

The Civana brand was born in 2017 out of a desire to make authentic and holistic wellness more approachable for the everyday traveller.

The group was originally led by Kevin Kelly, who had been CEO, and Rianna Riego, who was chief brand and wellness officer, and who together crafted the spa concept, but in December, Kelly and Riego were ousted from the company and Kelly was replaced by Lang.

Along with the two healthy dining venues – Terras and Café Meto – the spa completes the four pathways of Civana’s wellness model – Healthy Cuisine, Movement, Discovery, and the Healing Arts.
