2 Chocolate Scrub and Body Wrap at Hawaiian Experience Spa
At Hawaiian Experience Spa, you can imagine you're on your own private tropical island, surrounded by all the chocolate you could ever want. Offering a fun twist on your usual body treatment (unless you regularly allow spas to smother you with desserts), this spa's choco-treatment includes a chocolate sea salt scrub, a chocolate body wrap, and a chocolate body mousse application. Not only will you feel ultra-pampered, but the cocoa extract used is chock-full of antioxidants, so you'll be reaping cleansing and therapeutic benefits as well. The treatment is 90 minutes for $169, or you can opt to skip the wrap and replace it with a chocolate massage for the same price and same length of time. Or, you can spring for the 120-minute version of the treatment, in which you'll receive the scrub, the wrap, the body mousse, and a full-body therapeutic chocolate massage for $219. See the spa's site for full details and options.
