Hawaiian Hot Spas 2009



    Two Hawaii hot spots have been named to Condé Nast Traveler’s Hot list for 2009.

    The Royal Hawaiian hotel has been named a hot hotel and the spa at The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua on Maui made the hot spas list.

    The list features hotels, restaurants, spas and nightclubs chosen by the travel magazine’s editors. Most are new establishments.

    The Royal Hawaiian has “reclaimed its past glory” with its recent $50 million renovations, the magazine said.

    The Ritz-Carlton spa was noted for its large number of treatment rooms and private areas, so the spa never feels crowded.

    Full reviews of each hotel, restaurant, nightclub and spa will be in the May issue of Condé Nast Traveler, available April 21.
