The area's first wellness resort, CIVANA Carefree, opened earlier this year in the town of Carefree, just north of Scottsdale. CIVANA offers an immersive experience based on four pillars: movement, nourishment, spa and discovery. Guests can curate their own personal develop- ment and physical and spiritual wellness experi- ence with programming that ranges from guided hikes, spin class and yoga, to mindful photogra- phy, watercolour art classes and an introduction to crystals and aromatherapy. The 22,000-sq.-ft. Spa CIVANA, opening later this year, will have a thermal and Watsu pool, a Sanarium and 29 treatment rooms. CIVANA is unique in that it offers all the programming of a wellness resort at an attrac- tive price point that planners will appreciate, plus amenities that accommodate conference groups, with 189 rooms and suites and 23,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor meeting space. The team at CIVANA can organize private group sessions with their wellness experts and help build a schedule so that guests can take advan- tage of the daily complimentary movement and enrichment classes. Guests are welcomed to the stunning Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia through an arched entryway into the Cortijo Plaza courtyard, evocative of the Andalusian villages in southern Spain that were the inspiration for this desert escape. With 293 rooms, including two presidential suites, and a selection of unique and elegant indoor and outdoor event spaces, this is a destination that emboldens health, wellness and creativity. Organize an invigorating group hike out on the trails of nearby Camelback Mountain, or a team spin class on the terrace with breathtaking views of the mountain's peak. The world-class, full-ser- vice Joya Spa is onsite, offering stress man- agement meditation sessions and naturopathic wellness services including IV therapy that can be offered for groups during breakouts, delivering essential vitamins and nutrients directly into the bloodstream to help increase energy, improve sleep and enhance a sense of wellbeing. Spa Avania at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Gainey Ranch takes an exclusive approach to providing a holistic, total immersion spa experience that is based on the elements thought to be essential to the body's changing daily needs. "By catering to the body's internal demands throughout the day," says General Manager Dena Roady, "we seek to organically satisfy all five senses in such a way that guests are actually able to experience a sixth—an ideal state of being we call 'avania.'" The spa has a 16,290-gallon outdoor heated mineral pool, believed to enhance the immune system, stimulate circulation and accelerate the body's self-healing properties, and a Himalayan salt room—inhaling Royal Palms Resort and Spa CIVANA Carefree PHOTO: ROYAL PALMS RESORT AND SPA PHOTO: CIVANA CAREFREE
