Carefree Resort: Scottsdale’s First Sustainable Wellness Resort
On March 6, 2018, the wellness industry’s highly anticipated launch of the next generation hospitality wellness brand, CIVANA, made its debut at the location formerly known as the Carefree Resort and Conference Center in Carefree, AZ. Complete with healthy dining, spa, movement and fitness classes, and enrichment programs and lectures, CIVANA is the first sustainable wellness resort to open in Greater Phoenix, the 6th largest market.
Grounded in its principles of sustainability, attainability, and possibility, the forty million-dollar acquisition and multi-phase renovation is an adaptive re-use of an existing facility incorporating a natural design palette and materials, while improving energy efficiency and the introduction of solar energy in its new spa building. The facility houses 189 rooms, dining outlets, and the conversion of meeting space into state-of-the-art fitness, yoga, energy, movement, and enrichment studios.
