Cal-a-Vie Health Spa Facilities & Amenities

Rooms & Dining

Guests stay in private "Mediterranean-style villas" that have been individually decorated to recall the serene luxury of a European country villa; terra cotta roofs, wide wooden plank doors, and window boxes brimming with flowers. Every window at Cal-a-Vie frames an "appealing vista" and from your "private terrace" you can enjoy breathtaking views of the rolling, wooded hills. Luxuriously appointed with "fine linens" and hand crafted furniture, each villa is decorated uniquely to welcome and relax you.
World-renowned for its low calorie gourmet cuisine, Cal-a-Vie guests enjoy meals in the comfortable and inviting dining room as well as on the beautiful and serene courtyards. Proper nutrition plays an integral role in helping achieve personal fitness goals. Cal-a-Vie has developed a menu that not only nourishes, but also strives to instill within each guest the notion that simple, healthy eating can be elevated to gourmet status. The gourmet cuisine is enhanced by "garden fresh herbs and vegetables" that are carefully prepared and artfully presented to help slim, balance, and revitalize your body while meeting your unique nutritional needs. Guests so enjoy the cuisine at Cal-a-Vie, that a "cookbook" was created to stem the constant requests from past guests for recipes used at the spa.
