Miraval Resorts & Spas, a leader in transformative wellbeing destinations, has brought its exclusive mindfulness experience to the picturesque coastline of Southern California with the opening of the new Miraval Life in Balance Spa Aviara at the iconic Park Hyatt Aviara Resort, Golf Club & Spa.
Available to resort guests, locals and Southern California visitors seeking a wellbeing retreat, the new Miraval Life in Balance Spa Aviara features Miraval’s signature spa services that guests have come to love across the brand’s award-winning destination resorts—which include its flagship property, Miraval Arizona in Tucson—along with brand new treatments and wellbeing experiences.
The 15,000-square-foot spa destination was a part of the final phase of Park Hyatt Aviara’s $60-million-dollar resort-wide renovation and is the only Miraval Life in Balance Spa location outside of a Miraval resort, giving Southern California a taste of the Miraval magic and furthering Miraval Resorts’ mission of inspiring individuals to create a life in balance through mindfulness.
“Miraval Life in Balance Spas are designed as sanctuaries for respite, reflection and rejuvenation,” says Susan Santiago, head of lifestyle and Miraval operations. “Through Miraval Life in Balance Spa Aviara, we’ve blended elements of the San Diego landscape with Miraval signature spa and wellbeing offerings to create an intention-driven experience that supports guests in creating balance and cultivating mindfulness.”
The expansive menu of spa services at Miraval Life in Balance Spa Aviara is globally inspired and ranges from rejuvenating skincare, traditional and prenatal massage, body renewal rituals and nail care to reflexology, craniosacral and Reiki practices. Brand-new services exclusively developed for the Miraval Life in Balance Aviara experience take inspiration from the resort’s location along the coast of Carlsbad and include Ocean Song, a body renewal ritual that invokes the vitality and peace of an ocean wave with a rosemary sea salt exfoliation followed by a magnesium and birch soak and full-body massage before concluding with a singing bowl; and Warrior’s Recovery, which is designed to restore muscles and ease tension for the most active of warriors featuring a deep-tissue massage with warm herbal poultices and advanced stretching techniques.
To continue Miraval’s culinary philosophy that living well is not just about eating the right food but also about supporting whole-person wellbeing, Miraval Life in Balance Spa also offers multiple interactive culinary, nutrition and cultivation experiences, including ceviche and salsa making, smoothie blending and sip and snack cocktail classes.
The fitness center at Miraval Life in Balance Spa Aviara offers a host of classes and outdoor adventures that positively impact physical and emotional wellbeing, such as the Gratitude Hike at Batiquitos Lagoon, a guided trail walk that incorporates intention setting, gratitude and breathwork; a Breathe & Stretch Mindfully class, Bungee Fitness workout, yoga and meditation and pilates.
Miraval Life in Balance Spa Aviara also offers its guests a collection of inspired itineraries that are personalized to each individual’s intentions, as well as a membership program for community members that includes added benefits such as discounted spa services and access to exclusive social events.
