CIVANA is absolutely beautiful. I went for my birthday and had the most life changing experience here. I love the wellness aspect of the resort - they give you a water bottle upon arrival, the classes are very enlightening, the food options at Terra’s are very healthy and delicious. The service was also amazing from after booking to check out the CIVANA team is very helpful. The spa is also top tier. We had an issue with a scent in our room but when we brought it to their attention the quickly changed our room.
