The Wyland Waikiki Opens New Spa
The Wyland Waikiki, Hawaii’s only art-design hotel in the heart of Waikiki, welcomes Spa Pure and Spada Bar and Restaurant as its newest tenants to the 403-room property at 400 Royal Hawaiian Avenue.
“The addition of Spa Pure and Spada have brought a new energy to The Wyland Waikiki and round out the guest experience at the hotel,” said Robin Graf, general manager of The Wyland Waikiki. “The response from our guests, visitors traversing the neighborhood and residents thus far has been extremely positive. It’s great to know we’ve brought something new and exciting to this ‘off-the-beaten-path’ side of Waikiki.”
Spa Pure , a new day spa, opened this month and offers guests a full menu of massage services and treatments, including in-room and poolside offerings ranging from relaxing deep tissue therapy to shiatsu, four-hands, and foot massages. Spa Pure, with four treatment rooms, is also the first and only facility in Hawaii to offer Ganban Yoku stone table treatments, a special therapy made famous in Japan that cleanses and detoxifies the body.
Another unique experience exclusively offered at Spa Pure is the Ocean Massage, combining the elements of water, salt, wind, and weightlessness to restore balance and comfort to the shoulders, lower back, and feet. The treatment involves gentle, non-strenuous, and flowing therapeutic stretch positions while supported by the buoyancy of the water in a specially heated pool. Experienced therapists facilitate the movements and in stable floating positions apply shiatsu pressure for an incomparable healing massage. Through this exercise, transcendent weightlessness, effortless grace, and undisturbed perfect relaxation are achieved.
In celebration of Spa Pure’s opening, The Wyland Waikiki is offering a “Room and Spa” package starting at $269 per night (excluding tax) through December 21, 2008, which includes accommodations and complimentary room upgrade (upon availability), a signature Ocean Massage treatment for two, and an Ocean Essence Lotion Mist spa amenity.
A minimum three-night stay is required, special rate cannot be combined with any other offer, and package is subject to change and availability.
“Spa Pure will offer our guests some of the most advanced and innovative techniques and services available in the health and wellness market today,” Graf said. “It’s all part of our effort to provide a unique experience that can’t be had anywhere else.”
The Wyland Waikiki is also excited to announce the opening of Spada Bar and Restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner on the lobby level located on the corner of Royal Hawaiian and Kuhio avenues. The restaurant features intimate indoor and al fresco-style dining and a diverse Northern Italian inspired menu crafted by Executive Chef Tony Domingue, a graduate of the International Culinary School in Houston, Texas who has worked and trained under some of America’s top chefs, including Fritz Gitzchner (Houston Country Club), Scott Bryan (Veritas in New York) and Scott Tycer (Aries in Houston, Texas).
Spada’s breakfast menu offers a selection of morning favorites including Eggs Benedict, Salmon Benedict, a variety of Omelettes, Spada Scrambles (scrambled eggs served on a croissant with choice of breakfast meat, spinach, or artichoke), and fresh seasonal fruit.
The lunch and dinner menus are packed with flavor offering traditional antipasti, insalate, pizzas, pastas, and classic Italian entrees featuring chicken, pork, beef, and fresh seafood. Menu highlights include Lombata Di Maiale (pork tenderloin served with a port sun-dried cranberry reduction), Filetto Di Manzo (filet mignon toped with sun-dried tomato basil mascarpone), and Pesce Del Giorno (fresh fish of the day).
Rounding out the menu is a selection of dolce (desserts) highlighted by Gelati Misti (gelato or sorbet), Budino Di Pane (vanilla spiced bread pudding), and Tiramisu (homemade ladyfingers drizzled with espresso and frangellico, layered with mascarpone cheese, and cream).
