Wellness looks different to everyone. Some find bliss connecting with nature during a hike in the Sonoran desert, while others rejuvenate through the peaceful practice of yoga or meditation. Swimming laps may be more your style, or perhaps it’s cultivating your creativity through art or music. At Splendido, opportunities abound for enhancing your personal well-being.


As part of our commitment to continued innovation, we use an evolved approach to whole-person wellness, one that’s backed by scientific research. It’s called ContinuWell and it’s the guiding philosophy behind our individualized wellness programs.


True wellness goes beyond a person’s physical health. Numerous factors, such as emotional health, intellectual stimulation, environmental influences, social engagement, and spirituality are among the pieces that make up whole-person well-being. Our offerings reflect all of those elements.


Based on Mather Institute’s unique Person-Centric Wellness Model, the framework of ContinuWell takes into account how the empowering drivers of autonomy, achievement, and affiliation work hand-in-hand to deliver a full spectrum of fulfillment. Together, these factors provide you the ability to achieve your desired potential and aspirations.


At Splendido, there is a vast array of possibilities for your wellness journey, whatever that may be. Some options include:

  • experiencing a new medium in our Open Art Studio
  • exploring mindfulness in nature with practices that incorporate sound, movement, meditation, and creative writing
  • joining a group fitness class to focus on balance, strength, and cardiovascular health
  • learning something new—or teaching—through the Splendido Intellectual Pursuits Program
  • embarking on a process of self-discovery with our specially trained Wellness Coach
  • calming your mind with sound waves and vibrational therapy in our Gharieni Welnamis spa wave bed
  • connecting with friends on our inviting terrace as the sun sets on the Catalinas

Each person’s wellness journey is unique

This important evolution in our approach to wellness considers the many factors that contribute to a person’s quality of life on three levels:

The individual level

Personal interests, values, beliefs, and attitudes

The community level

Social networks and neighborhood resources

The society level

Politics, the economy, and culture

Achieving individual wellness starts with straight ‘A’s

While each person’s wellness is unique to their life experiences and influences, research has identified three contributing drivers within this model that play a significant role.


We thrive when empowered to make our own choices. Even when we rely on others, being able to make decisions for ourselves is a key driver of personal well-being.


Confidence comes from doing. From learning. From knowing. A powerful way to foster wellness is an accomplishment on our own terms.


One of the most basic human needs is to belong. To feel a part of something bigger than ourselves. Being connected to other people is critical to achieving well-being.
