Miraval’s Sleep Experience
“Sleep is such an integral part of our daily lives and has a direct correlation with our overall well-being. Guests want to feel comfortable and refreshed every morning to get the most out of their Miraval experience. Hotels should be a home away from home when traveling and should provide the same level of comfort—if not better—when it comes to the sleep experience.”
– Philippe Brenot, Senior Director of Retail, Miraval Group
It is not uncommon to hear guests of Miraval Resorts & Spas raving about the Miraval Sleep Experience, and that’s why we wanted to dig a little deeper.
Wendi Gaddis, Miraval Arizona‘s Retail Manager, took some time to connect with our friends at Cuddledown to get a few topline questions answered to help you better understand what makes the bedding at Miraval so special!
Wendi Gaddis: “Are the featherbeds conducive to a great night’s sleep? What makes them so special?”
Cuddledown: “When placed directly on top of your mattress, handcrafted Cuddledown featherbeds provide an additional layer of softness and support for your body’s pressure points, creating extra comfort and support for achy shoulders and hips, cloud-like bed for incredible slumber. The 2 layer construction is what makes it so special … a supportive bottom layer made from a blend of down (3 dimensional and soft) and feathers (2 dimensional and supportive …but not soft). The top layer, closer to the skin, is filled with 600FP White Duck down – for soft, cradling comfort.
Wendi Gaddis: “What is the weight of the comforter and why is that essential to sleep?”
Cuddledown: “Our comforters are lighter in weight than blankets, fuller than quilts, and maintain cozy, breathable natural warmth throughout the night. Maintaining a comfortable temperature, plus avoiding overheating in bed is an important part of getting a good night’s sleep. We could also add that a lightweight comforter is also a benefit/solution for those with ailments such as fibromyalgia. The lightness provides soft warmth and ease of movement while sleeping. Also, we have a variety of six different sleeping warmth levels that have varying weights, something for all types of sleepers.”
Wendi Gaddis: Are there any chemicals used that would be counter-productive to sleep? For instance – we take so much time trying to set the sleep intention with music, lighting, scents, etc. and would the bedding negate any of those intentions?
Cuddledown: No counter-productive chemicals here! In fact, you can rest extra easy with Cuddledown bedding, because our handcrafted pillows, comforters and featherbeds are tested for harmful substances and certified to meet the strict global safety criteria of the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, assuring safety for you and your family. What’s more, our down bedding is made using responsibly sourced down fills (RDS certified by Control Union) that are washed several times to be hypoallergenic.
A full bedding ensemble for Miraval guests includes the featherbed, comforter, four pillows, fitted and flat sheet, and four pillowcases. All of these items are available for purchase at the Miraval shop.
