Key sites/activities in the area
Miraval is an inclusive destination resort. In almost all cases, Miraval IS the destination for our guests and guests typically stay on campus. Tucson attractions and shopping are available 45 minutes to 1 hour away, but Tucson attractions and shopping are not the reason guests visit Miraval.
PHILOSOPHY: The idea of “mindfulness,” or being present to the moment, has always been the philosophy at Miraval Arizona and is threaded through every offering, activity, and service at the resort.
NAME: The word Miraval is a blend of two Spanish words meaning “view of the valley”—literally, as we sit in a geographic envelope, and figuratively, as the mirror that lives inside all of us.
LOGO: The trademarked “I,” which is Miraval Arizona’s logo, stands for the Miraval Arizona experience
