Case Study

CIVANA Resort Spa & Sanctuary, Carefree, AZ

CIVANA Resort Spa & Sanctuary invested around $50M to transform and renovate the 189-bedroom Carefree Resort in Arizona, including the addition of a 20,000-square-foot spa with 29 treatment rooms and a full Aqua Vitality Circuit.

CIVANA’s goal was to recapture the time-honored art of healing through water with a hydrotherapy thermal circuit of hot and cold pools, including a European-designed Kneipp hot/cold wading pool and Tepidarium therapeutic soaking pool and a multi-climate KLAFS SANARIUM®—the first installed in the continental U.S.—offering flexibility for operators to provide varied climates.
CIVANA's 1,350SF Hydrothermal Area was designed and built by Design for Leisure working in collaboration with spa consultant Rianna Riego, architects 3rd Story, and interior design firm Mendil+Meyer.
