Miraval Resorts are wellness destinations first and foremost: device-free properties specializing in spa experiences, yoga, meditation, and therapeutic classes on everything from gut health to stress management.

During their shutdown, they overhauled cleaning and safety procedures, calculating ideal capacity and educating staff members — from the astrologers to the beekeepers — on public health practices. Ultimately, COVID-19 has inspired Miraval to redevelop the programming at their 3 locations to meet guests on a deeper level.
