Cal-A-Vie Health Spa is one of these special places in the world that leaves you forever changed, inspired, energized and filled with peace.
Located on 200 gorgeous acres in sunny southern California, it is known as one of the top health and wellness retreats in the world. With an impressive staff-to-guest ratio of 4 to 1, it ensures an extremely high level of personalized service and gives you an experience unlike any other wellness spa in the world.
All guests are given a customized health and fitness program at the beginning of their stay.
The Cal-a-Vie property takes environmental awareness and stewardship very seriously, and has an ongoing recycling program for all recyclable materials including; water bottles, cardboard and metal. In addition, all of their cleaning techniques include a chemical-free cleaning system that is completely sodium lauryl sulfate-free, which is less dangerous to humans, reduces allergies, and is free from the carcinogens that conventional cleaning products often contain.
The spa also offers treatments using natural products and you can opt for aromatherapy to be added to your massages, hydrotherapy facials or reflexology sessions.
While the property is sprawling, it contains only 32 Mediterranean-style villas, each with it’s own sundeck or balcony so that you can completely indulge and sleep in late, take afternoon naps and enjoy countless moments in peace and privacy.
As a guest, you are welcome to spend your days doing whatever your heart desires. A magical beginning to each day is waking at sunrise and taking a hike into the hills and mountains surrounding the property, covered with vineyards and breathtaking scenery.
