3 Relaxing Spas on the Big Island

Spas on the Big Island are perfect relaxation destinations, especially when set against the background of Hawaii’s natural beauty, temperate climate, and wealth of outdoor activities.

The Big Island of Hawaii has some of the best spas in the world, and there is an especially high concentration on the picture-perfect Kohala Coast. With their multitude of treatment options, expert masseuses, and beautiful tropical facilities, these 3 locations offer ideal spa experiences.

After a visit to any one of these 3 spas on the Big Island, you’ll emerge more refreshed and renewed than you ever could have imagined:

The Mauna Lani Spa

The Maui Lani Spa, located at the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows, is the definition of luxurious. The Kohala Coast is known for its lava fields, which serve as a beautiful natural backdrop for the spa’s extensive treatment options.

This spa is themed around “fire and ice” to reflect the island’s geographic diversity, and the theme is incorporated into the treatments. They have absolutely everything you could ask for, from mocha body scrubs to chai soy mud body wraps to ten different types of facials. The treatment offerings number in the dozens, so you’re sure to get exactly what you’re looking for.

And when you’re not enjoying one of the spa’s specialty treatments, you can wander around the bountiful garden, sauna, or pool, or simply enjoy the breathtaking ocean view.

Four Seasons Hualalai Spa

Also set on the alluring Kohala Coast, the Four Seasons Hualalai offers the best of a luxury spa, plus a robust fitness component.

Its elaborate treatments incorporate local island ingredients and practices, like grape seed oil, black lava salt, hibiscus, and coconut. A series of spas, pools, and gardens complement the body treatments.

And fitness options like a 25-meter lap pool, climbing wall, and basketball court ensure that you have the option for active relaxation as well. You can try out one of the spa’s 50+ classes a week, which include everything from physical therapy to acupuncture to yoga.

Kohala Spa

This 25,000-square-foot spa, located at the Hilton Waikoloa Village, is the ultimate in relaxation.

The Kohala Spa’s most attractive offering is its Seaside Cabana Massage treatment, which gives you the opportunity for a massage in a private, oceanside cabana. Getting massaged by an experienced masseuse while you stare out at the shimmering Pacific has to be one of the most blissful experiences around. And if you go in the winter months, the cabanas offer prime whale watching opportunities.

The spa’s other options are all top-notch as well. From tropical manicures and pedicures to island baths and hair care – plus yoga, exercise, and wellness classes – the Kohala Spa truly has everything you could need.

The spa therapists are all experts in the Iomi Iomi massage technique, as well as numerous variations, including the famous Kohala Massage. You won’t find a more deluxe, personalized massage anywhere else.
