The Kapalua Spa

The ultimate spa experience.

November 12, 2009
Paul Janes-Brown

The main waiting area is set off by a great Tadashi Sato painting. The sea and sky tones of the waiting area are nicely accented by the ceramic-supported tables. The waiting area opens to a raised pool overlooking the property and spectacular Kapalua Bay and Moloka‘i.

With 19 treatment rooms and 10 outdoor hales, all of one’s wishes for a unique environment can be met.

A full-service salon with three pedicure stations and two hair stations caters to beauty needs, and a state-of-the-art fitness facility with expert trainers offers digital machines and cable television.

Enjoy a sybaritic day at an elegant new spa in Kapalua. This is the life!

On the upper level is a stunning mirrored studio with a dance barre where a full menu of yoga and movement classes is available.

A juice bar offers a healthy bite and fresh juice, or purchase a snack from a full array of products located off of the main entry area.

For best results, book a treatment from the smorgasbord of choices. Arrive about two hours prior to the treatment appointment. Work out in the fitness center, then repair to the locker rooms where sauna, steam room, cold rainfall and whirlpool treatments await.

Emerging refreshed and cleansed, go to the relaxation room where your therapist will greet you. The awa and cacao wrap is their signature treatment—I recommend it without reservation.

With your body fully covered in the elixir, the natural warmth of the product begins to increase. With this suspended feeling comes an ecstatic perception that time has slowed.

Then it’s into the shower to rinse off, towel dry and back on the table to receive a pikake spray and a final rub. Three deep breaths of a salt to cleanse the passages and revitalize the lungs conclude the experience. I felt cleaner than the day I was born.

No sybaritic day would be complete without a trip to the sundeck around the saline, infinity lap pool for some rays and a relaxing dip.

I have to say something about the artwork. The huge Tadashi Sato that greets all of the guests in the main lobby is certainly an exceptional piece, but there are wonderful pieces of original art throughout the spa. Unfortunately, the artists remain anonymous unless one is knowledgeable about Hawaiian art.
