The Miraval Wellness Retreat in Arizona minimizes it's eco-footprint, but not it's luxury, comfort, or relaxing atmosphere. The surprisingly cozy center loses none of its charm in the aim of operating as a sustainable green institution and there is something charmingly naturalistic about its rammed earth foundations, its rain-harvesting systems and its natural air cooling.

Even the spa's hot water is heated by sunlight rather than energy-guzzling water heaters. All of these subtle, but significant innovations make the Miraval wellness retreat a soothing and unobtrusive experience for both patrons and the local environment.
