After a full weekend of festivities at the Four Seasons Hualalai, we really needed to indulge and unwind at Hualalai Spa located in Kona. This world-class spa offers a unique Hawaiian experience with its lush greenery gardens and quiet streams. With 7 new exotic outdoor hales, lap pool, whirlpools, saunas, cold plunges and a sports club, this is a true luxurious spa experience.
We booked a fabulous Lomi Lomi massage, which is a traditional Hawaiian massage that is a sacred healing art passed down from generation to generation by kupuna (elders). The techniques are rhythmic and use of long strokes of the palms and forearm.
Before we started our treatment, we got to enjoy the amazing Eucalyptus steam room, which dates back thousands of years ago to the Ancient Greek and Roman era as the ultimate luxury for royalty. Eucalyptus steam has many health benefits that creates an overall sense of well being throughout the body. It was so lovely to just relax and rejuvenate ourselves for a few minutes before our massages began.
Three therapists greeted us and took us to a private, couple’s hale, which features dual outdoor showers, a hinoki soaking tub and a private garden for dining. It was such a gorgeous, intimate setting. During our 50-minute massage, we all decided to add an additional 30-minutes, because it was one of the most amazing massages we’ve ever had!
After our massages, we used the outdoor showers, which was surrounded by greenery and listened to the chirping of the birds. It was pure bliss! There was a beautiful bottle of champagne waiting for us in the dining area, where we just sat taking it all in and gushing about our amazing treatment.
The whole experience was wonderful and loved how the spa made you feel like you were in your own tropical oasis. It was a slice of heaven and can’t wait to return to this beautiful spa. Thank you Four Seasons Hualalai for the most memorable time! It truly is the best spa in Hawaii…
