Miraval Announces Plans for an East Coast Location

East-coast spa-goers and fans of Miraval Resort & Spa, the award-winning destination spa in Tucson, AZ, have reason to rejoice thanks to the opening of Miraval at Natirar (Peapack, NJ). Slated to open in 2014, the luxury resort and spa marks the next phase of expansion for both the Miraval brand and the Natirar resort development project, which features the Ninety Acres Culinary Center, a 12-acre sustainable farm, banquet and catering facilities, and a private membership club. The property is located on the Natirar estate, which was formerly owned by the King of Morocco. Situated withing a 500-acre park, less than one hour from New York City, Miraval at Natirar will offer signature Miraval activites, such as The Miraval Equine Experience and Quantum Leap, in addition to nutritional counseling and wellness lectures. “We’ve always believed that the Miraval experience should not be limited to those who have the opportunity to visit the resort in Tucson, and have continuously looked for ways to bring the Miraval mindset and lifestyle to new people in new places,” say owners Jean and Steve Case. When completed, Miraval at Natirar will include an 86-room luxury hotel with suites in Natirar’s historic mansion, a 20,000-square-foot spa, a 10,000-square-foot wellness pavilion, a 4,000-square-foot yoga center, a spa restaurant featuring Miraval cuisine, and a series of meeting facilities. “With so many Miraval Tucson guests residing in the Northeast, Natirar’s proximity to New York City and the surrounding region coupled with the extraordinary physical setting made it a natural choice for Miraval,” says CEO Michael Tompkins. “Although the new property will offer the same level of luxury and authenticity as the Tucson property, each location within the Miraval brand is unique to its setting and will offer its own authentic experience. We’re excited to be poised for growth, and are actively evaluating additional select locations across the U.S. at this time.”
