Hawaiian healing at a contemporary spa
8 Treatment Rooms/ 4 Couples Treatment Rooms
The Hawanawana Spa at Four Seasons Resort Lana’i exudes luxury from the moment you step inside. Located on the pool level of the exclusive resort, the spa entrance has a tunnel-like walkway that leads to the reception, where friendly staff eagerly greets you as you embark on this opulent journey.
Cushioned white chairs, lemon-infused water, tea and addictive fruit frangipanes — muffin-like treats made with almond meal for an added nutritional boost — await as you fill out a quick health form. Whether you indulge in a poolside treatment tucked away in a cabana or in some of the Hawaiian-inspired services that use kala, small sticks made from local guava wood, the spa experience at the Four Seasons is pampering — perfect for honeymooners, golfers looking to unwind after a day on the course or anyone who wants to enjoy their time on this idyllic island.
While the locker rooms may be on the smaller side, The Hawanawana Spa at Four Seasons Resort Lanai is filled with amenities that will release every last bit of tension from weary mainlanders. Spacious lockers are filled with cozy Cypress robes and cushioned Yeah Baby slippers, making traipsing between the wet areas a breeze. We loved the dry red-cedar sauna and the eucalyptus steam room that loosened muscles tired from a day of hiking and snorkeling in the bay. Fully stocked with amenities made exclusively for the hotel, the locker room has blow dryers, hair-styling products, mouthwash and lotion to keep sun-drenched skin hydrated and soft. Relax post-treatment in the waiting area, by the pool with a tropical cocktail or in your guest room’s private patio while gazing at the ocean.
When on the gorgeous island of Lanai, it would be a crime to not take advantage of the local bounty that is turned into beautifying products at this luxurious spa. For a brightening and utterly calming service, we recommend the macadamia sugar polish. It begins with a scrub made of ground nuts blended with Hawaiian cane sugar. After your body is scrubbed and glowing like no other, your baby-soft skin is massaged with virgin coconut oil to leave you feeling brand new.
For something really indulgent, opt for the three-hour Ocean Ritual. It will be hard not to feel like a king or queen after this exotic treatment. First, sip locally grown Makai tea in the steam room as a therapist performs a full-body exfoliation followed by a purifying sea clay body wrap. Cleansed and renewed, you finish the pampering time with a nourishing Super Green Marine bath. To make the day even better, cap it off with an ocean-side meal at Nobu Lanai and a handcrafted passion fruit margarita while you enjoy the warm ocean breeze on your refreshed, dewy-looking skin.
