A Taste of a Life-Changing Stay at VeraVia

The Experience At Our Luxury Fitness Resort

At VeraVia, we are the most comprehensive all-inclusive luxury health and weight loss resort and spa. Not only do we cover all four pillars of health, but we also create a luxury retreat experience at the world-class “Forbes Five-Star” and “AAA Five-Diamond Rated” Park Hyatt Aviara Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, California.

So what can you expect during your stay at VeraVia?

Below we outline what is included:

Before Arrival

Before starting your VeraVia experience, you’ll complete a comprehensive online pre-arrival health and lifestyle questionnaire covering every aspect of your existing health. This includes lifestyle habits, pre-existing health conditions, dietary restrictions, behavior and personality, and personal health goals.

Our team will review your completed health questionnaire to help provide a personalized program. Before you even arrive for your stay, our team will have a complete picture of your current lifestyle habits, health status, and wellness goals for your stay. This questionnaire is critical for your success at VeraVia and will also be used to measure your results upon leaving our weight loss resort and spa.

You’ll also receive a pre-arrival call from our Director of Fitness to find out more detail about your current fitness level and any physical restrictions so our fitness team can customize the workouts to meet you where you are.

Our Director of Nutrition will call you before your arrival to review any dietary restrictions and review your nutritional goals, which will be used to customize your meal plan.
