about CIVANA CAREFREE
CIVANA was born out of a desire to make wellness more expansive and approachable. Grounded in the philosophy of wellness through oneness, we believe in the sustainable interconnection of the individual, community, and natural environment.
CIVANA is a place for the traveler to rest, nurture, nourish and discover in both playful and impactful ways. We encourage all to Seek Deeply, Travel Lightly, Live Fully.
Designed to take you back to the origin of SPA – Salus Per Aquam (Health through Water) by offering a choice of hydrotherapy immersions that include a tepidarium, hot/cold walking pool, cold plunge shower and saunarium. The ritual of “taking the waters” is intrinsic to the traditions of spa along with alternating hot and cold exposure. A pre and post ritual to ground the body for healing therapies.
Terras restaurant is all about choice. We highlight colorful, veggie-forward meals, but offer a broad range of menu options for everyone and every craving—totally free of GMOs, hydrogenated fats, hormones, and preservatives. Think delicious farm-to-table produce, grass-fed meats, sustainable seafood, and decadent desserts. And whether you’re gluten free, grain free, vegetarian, vegan, or just enjoy a glass of wine with dinner, our chefs will make your dining experience memorable.

I can’t put into words what this experience has meant to me…at least not yet! Such a wonderful shift. The personal connection and attention was truly amazing!

One of the most fulfilling experiences I have ever had. Thank you Amber! And if you are a mother, a woman, a believer of self discovery, truths and betterment, start planning. Plant the seed with your family now that you are going away for a few days and when the next retreat comes, go!
– Kayo Libiano
