CIVANA Wellness Resort & Spa

Welcome to CIVANA – a wellness resort like no other. We focus on whole being, well-being, and human beings. CIVANA’s four pillars represent our philosophy – Spa, Movement, Nutrition and Discovery.

Spa: As the origin of life, water refreshes and renews our souls and our bodies. It purifies and heals. Our state-of-the-art Spa focuses on water as a primary healing channel.

Movement: Breath, sweat, energy, vibration. Movement ignites inspiration. Enjoy many of our holistic wellness classes to balance and recharge.

Nourishment: Food nourishes and gives us energy to embrace the day. Renowned Chef Justin Macy thoughtfully sources healthy, delicious, and seasonal ingredients.

Discovery: A great joy in life is discovery of self, others, and our surroundings. We welcome our guests to uncover their potential.
