While any trip to Maui is an
escape from everyday life, hide yourself even further
by taking a trip to one of the majestic Maui spas that
are available throughout the island. Often attached to
a shimmering hotel in one of the larger cities, these
getaways offer everything you could ever want from a spa
treatment, along with glistening views and tropical warmth.
Though no spa in Maui is likely to let you down, there
are a handful of options that are far superior to your
run of the mill spas that are scattered across the island,
spas that take luxury, comfort and personal attention
to a whole new level.
The most popular and famous of the Maui spas in the
Honua Spa, located in the middle of the Hotel
Hana-Maui. Whether you have come for a lavish stay
at the hotel, a brief respite from your excursion down
the Hana highway, or specifically
for a wondrous trip into this Maui Day Spa, Honua will
not disappoint. And, despite being found on one of the
most expensive hotels in all of Hawaii (or perhaps because
of it), the spa offers very reasonable rates for their
services, plus allows you to wander the hotel's
spacious grounds and pool area. If you are in the mood
for a vacation from your vacation, this is the best spa
All the finest spas seem to be part of a grand hotel, and the Spa Grande is no different. Located inside the Grand Wailea Resort in Wailea, this Maui spa prides itself on the unique treatments provided at their facility, combining Hawaiian heritage and philosophies with flora and fauna that can only be found on the island chain into their famed seashell massages, volcanic wraps or Lomi Lomi massages. Even if you are not a guest, you can purchase half and full day passes for this Maui spa, consistently voted by Travel & Leisure magazine as one of the top 10 spas in the country.
In the resort town of Kaanapali, you can find a number of Maui day spas, but poolside at the Sheraton Maui is the best in the area. Here, just past the bar, you'll find the Seaside Salon and Maui Day Spa. While it is not as private as some of the other hotel spas, it more than makes up for it with exquisite ocean views and a knowledge staff that keeps savvy spa enthusiasts coming back time after time. Also, it might be the best priced spa in Maui, allowing you a uniquely Hawaiian atmosphere and treatments that will leave you wanting to languish here forever.
