s p a p r o fi l e [ 54 ] • # dayspamagazine • june 2017 spa profi le by Lesley McCave T hey say you know when you've arrived at Miraval. Entering through the security gates, your blood pressure automatically falls 20 points, and your hunched shoulders drop. The name itself carries a mystique and prestige: People who've stayed here rave about it, and those who haven't "ooh" and "aah" with envy when you tell them you're going. I'd always wanted to see if this bucket list destination spa lived up to its reputation, and I fi nally got the chance to visit in January. "New Year, new me," I fi gured. Having driven directly to this spot—about 25 miles north of Tucson, Arizona—from Las Vegas after attending the annual Consumer Electronics Show (translation: I was about to explode from stress and stimuli), I was desperate for a few days in the desert to unwind and recharge. Against a stunning backdrop, a spiritual destination spa resort holds its own over two decades after its debut.
