Cal-A-Vie Hotel Review

: Located 40 miles north of San Diego, Cal-A-Vie is one of the nation’s premier health havens. Its combination of health education, fitness facilities and spa treatments all but ensures soundness of mind, body and spirit. Service is outstanding, largely due to the five-to-one staff-to-guest ratio and the 32 guest maximum. The resort offers three, four and seven-night spa vacations that include gourmet meals (often served outdoors), fitness classes, hiking, beauty treatments, nutrition lectures, comfortable accommodations and even a boutique where you can purchase beautiful designer spa wear, healthy cookbooks, yoga mats and workout clothes. Optional educational lectures are held in the evenings and cover topics from stress management to nutrition; cooking classes are another popular option. All visitors stay in private Mediterranean-style villas, complete with luxurious linens and hand-crafted furniture.
