Every major American city has its very own cultural specialty: New York is a dining mecca; Los Angeles is a shopping mecca; San Francisco is a cocktail mecca. Beyond its beautiful beaches, Hawaii has its own strength on the global stage, world-class spas. And the Halele’a Spa at the St. Regis Princeville Resort is the crown jewel in an island chain chock full of serene and elegantly appointed spas.
In Hawaiian, Halele’a means “House of Joy” and the spirit of Aloha exudes from start to finish during your customized spa experience. Known best for their signature treatments using only premiere island ingredients and techniques, Halele’a Spa services are enhanced by essences of local fruit and flora. They’re all about infusing classic Hawaiian healing rituals with botanical and ocean elements from the isle. And, Kauai-based brand Malie even created a series of spa products exclusively for the Halele’a Spa using local ingredients like taro root, wild ginger, coffee berry and Kauai clay for the range.
Revitalize your senses and balance that chi by choosing from an array of signature treatments including the Exotic Maile, Organic Seaweed Oil and Taro Butter Pohaku Massages. The Maile is a unique treatment incorporating self-heating seashells from the ocean. The shells are heated from the inside combining natural ingredients of minerals, sea kelp, algae and salt water. The Organic Seaweed Oil is a peace-promoting stress reliever that also combats the effects of jet lag and reconditions the skin. The seaweed also helps to renew damaged skin cells, tone and elasticity. Finally, the Taro Butter Pohaku uses smooth basalt stones to soothe aches and pains while promoting circulation and deep relaxation.
Following your sure-to-be heavenly treatment enhance your indulgence with some time in the sauna and steam room. Or, refresh in the “experience showers” that provide a waterfall feature and side-by-side jets. Also fit in a post massage nap in the relaxation room and enjoy the calming wall-to-wall waterfalls while sipping assorted island herbal teas.
For al fresco R & R, you can opt for an outdoor ocean-side treatment in the spa cabana. If your time is of the essence, commit to a less lengthy option by choosing a mini poolside service. Unique to Halele’a, you can choose from 15- to 30-minute massages for the hands, scalp, shoulders or feet.
The Halele’a Spa at the St. Regis Princeville Resort is the perfect way to pamper yourself while on vacation in beautiful Kauai.
