Hawaii Beach Spas


Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea

There are many incredible beaches and superb resorts in Hawaii, but for service, food, location and ambiance, nothing beats the Four Seasons resort on Maui. The island boasts gorgeous weather year round and its white sand beaches and clear blue water make for great scuba diving, snorkeling, wind surfing or just world-class goofing off.

One of the world’s finest resorts shows how even perfect experiences can improve on perfection. Discover aloha enchantment with chic sophistication in the Island’s most spacious guest rooms – completely renewed and rewired for the 21st century. Bask in Maui’s driest, sunniest weather. On a white-sand crescent of Pacific paradise, allow Four Seasons to give you Wailea at its very best.

While the signature massages at this spa introduce guests to Hawaiian traditions, the body treatments expose them to the bounty of the islands. Using native and natural ingredients, these unique treatments rejuvenate skin, and smell and feel heavenly while doing so. The mango salt glow uses mango sorbet to exfoliate skin while the Hawaiian nut-sugar scrub employs a blend of macadamia, coconut and kukui nut to smooth skin. The papaya-pineapple body scrub combines those fruits with finely crushed grape seeds. With its orchid and sea salt bath, mango salt exfoliation, refreshing moisturizing treatment, and divine reflexology massage, the ultimate foot treatment delivers what it promises.
