Mauna Lani Spa celebrates and complements the geographic wonders unique to Hawaii Island. From the snowy peaks of Mauna Kea to the flowing lava of Kilauea Crater, the spa's architecture, finishes, treatments and services draw from the colorful history and mythology of the land.

The land where Mauna Lani Spa sits is known as Kalahuipua'a, a place of spiritual power and energy (mana) where Hawaiian royalty used to escape to rejuvenate their health and spirit. Built among ancient lava, Mauna Lani Spa resembles a peaceful Hawaiian village with outdoor thatched hale (huts) for treatments. A Hawaiian medicinal garden with lemongrass, tea leaves and Kukui nut bring soothing and healing elements to the environment.

The elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water influence the treatments and experiences, such as mud wraps using volcanic ash, hot stone therapies and seaweed wraps and baths. Mauna Lani Spa is the only spa throughout the Hawaiian Islands to offer both the Lava Sauna Experience and the Lava Watsu Experience.

Mauna Lani Spa's unique open-air Lava Sauna Experience is the perfect way to experience the spiritual powers of the surroundings. The 50-minute treatment includes an application of black volcanic clay to the body and signature Cocanilla body oil to leave you refreshed, and revitalized.

Often described as underwater shiatsu, the Lava Watsu Experience is a passive form of aquatic body work that supports and gently moves your body through warm water in graceful, fluid movements. This relaxing meditative treatment is designed to bring total tranquility as your therapist supports, stretches and massages you. Calming underwater acoustics add to this soothing experience. The design of Mauna Lani Spa's Watsu replicates the experience of being inside a lava tube.

Mauna Lani Spa also features nine indoor treatment rooms including a deluxe suite for couples with a steam bath and whirlpool, manicure and pedicure facilities, facial rooms, a full-service hair and beauty salon and spa boutique. For Spa reservations call 808-881-7922, or email
