Hiʻilani Spa: Embraced by the Arms of Heaven

The calming beauty of Kauaʻi makes it easy to slow down, relax, and remember all the things that make you smile. Here, nature and healing are considered interchangeable. It may start with the sunrise over the Pacific Ocean, or perhaps the rustle of the trade winds in the trees, or even the simplicity of sitting still and hearing the gentle call of the native nēnē as the birds settle for the evening.

Over generations, Hawaiian ancestors have passed down the belief that optimum health is the outcome of living in harmony with nature, and this island’s curative climate, therapeutic water, and aloha spirit help restore balance in the lives of locals and visitors alike. That balance is an essential part of our wellness program at Kukuiʻula.

Approach the lava rock walls of the extensive wellness complex through lush meditation gardens, which help to clear away outside distractions. Botanicals grown here—like ʻolena (turmeric), ʻawapuhi (ginger), and lemongrass—are essential to treatments and tonics, with fresh-pressed juices served poolside at the secluded adult lap pool and available in the spa boutique.

Treatments at Hiʻilani Spa, from massage to acupuncture and aesthetician services, are experiences created for complete mind and body rejuvenation and relaxation. Whether your preferred massage is traditional Hawaiian healing Lomi Lomi, deep-tissue Shiatsu, therapeutic reflexology, or even a personalized combination of techniques to focus on your body’s specific needs, there is enough variety of options to improve circulation and flexibility, as well as ease muscle tension.

Start anew with a cleanse and detoxification program or be your own alchemist and learn to create your personal body medicine to attain that essential life balance with nature. Nurturing skincare, from facials to body treatments, both invigorate and replenish your skin. Spa facilities also include private lounges and locker rooms with outdoor showers, steam and sauna rooms, and hot and cold plunge pools.

You can feel the elements at Hiʻilani Spa, with the occasional breeze, sturdy lava rock walls, the warmth of the sun, and abundance of water. Begin or end your spa experience with our signature Wet Ritual, which focuses on highly effective therapies featuring filtered water in a variety of forms: cool, warm, liquid, mist, steam. Each step of the ritual incorporates our holistic expertise and attention to detail, and the progression will leave you feeling immeasurably renewed.

Pair that renewal with your fitness goals at the Hiʻilani Fitness facility, with classes including yoga, barre, BOSU, pilates, qi gong, cross-training, and strength training. Class options blend invigorating immersion with focused balance and connect wellness programs across personal experiences and skillsets. Work out using our state-of-the-art equipment or enjoy the fresh island air through the open doors of the movement studio—fitness here is just one ingredient in your overall wellness lifestyle.

It’s easy to live pono at Kukuiʻula, making good choices about your complete wellness while feeling connected to nature and its essential role in restoring health and balance in life, giving you many more reasons to smile.
