Spa of the Week: Hi’ilani Spa

By Kristen Shirley

Located near the Clubhouse at the site of our March/April cover shoot, Hi’ilani Spa is the perfect Hawaiian hideaway. Surrounded by lava rock walls, the spa offers a wide array of treatments, including some specialized Hawaiian-inspired treatments, and a fabulous seven-step wet ritual to put you into a relaxed state of mind from the second you step into the spa. A technician walks you through the steps, which include showers with a hair mask, time in the sauna with flavored water, cool towels and a fan, a refreshing steam with a salt scrub, finished with alternating hot and cold plunges, all in the tropically landscaped outdoor spa area. You will feel completely refreshed and perfectly prepared to receive the healing benefits of your treatment. When it is time for your treatment, your therapist will bring you to a private room open to the tropical gardens surrounding the property. After a 90-minute massage spent listening to the gentle rustling of trees in the wind and birds chirping, you will truly feel like you have found paradise.

The Hi’ilani Spa is located at Kukui’ula in Kaua’i and is open to residents and guests. For reservations, please call +1 808 742 3070.
