GRATUITIES & TIPPING
Miraval is a non-tipping resort property. We believe a “no tipping” policy is essential to a mindful guest experience. Once you arrive at Miraval, a friendly “thank you” or note on a guest comment card is the best tip you can give and the only one we allow.
CELL PHONE AND DIGITAL DEVICE POLICY – MIRAVAL MODE
Mindfulness is the core of the Miraval philosophy. In everything we do, we encourage our guests to live in the present moment, conscious of the unique intersection of mind, body and spirit. In order to foster a tranquil environment for all our guests, please understand and adhere to “Miraval Mode” during your visit with us.
Miraval Mode: Cell phones and all digital devices are PROHIBITED from being uses on property unless you are in a designated area on property or your guest room. Cell phones Miraval should be kept on silent at all times and that talking and texting is only permitted in the comfort of your guest room. We understand that you may want to use your cell phone camera to capture your Miraval experience throughout your stay, we welcome use of your camera in designated areas on property or activities. We encourage you to share on social media in the comfort of your guest room at the end of your day. Also, in consideration of those around you, please refrain from using digital devices to take notes in lectures/workshops. Complimentary notepads and pens are provided for your convenience.
I understand that I may be approached by a Miraval staff member to terminate cell phone usage in areas not designated for electronic devices. I will keep my mobile device on “silent” and be mindful of guests around me when using it in designated areas.
