A true wellness experience in Hawaii transcends traditional spa services but what the The Four Seasons Maui at Wailea manages to do is bring some of the heritage and healing history of Hawaii to  their spa. Natives plants surround the three ocean side hales (thatched huts) which were built in the traditional style, with no nails or modern tools. They sit so close to the water’s edge that you can hear the waves crashing and smell the scent of tropical flowers brought into the hale with the ocean breeze. While taking all that in, can experience the spa’s signature Lomi Mohala massage, a form of the traditional Hawaiian lomi lomi massage. Based on intention, the flow of the ocean waves, and practiced movements, the treatment is intended to be both spiritual and emotional as well as physical.
