Oahu’s Top Spas

by Bionic Beauty on 12.Oct.2009 · 4 comments

Last Monday I introduced you to Oyster.com (my new online “hangout”) and their listing of Miami Florida’s Top Spas. This week, Oyster shares the list of Oahu, Hawaii’s Top Spas.

Now doesn’t that sound nice? A spa trip in Hawaii? Hmmm…. yes, nice.

1. Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort Hotel

  • Price: $334/night

The 17,000-square-foot Moana Lani Spa is one of the largest and newest luxury spas in Waikiki. But what really makes it stand out is its prime location on Waikiki Beach. The ocean views from its swank treatment rooms, including its couples treatment suites with private balconies, are superb. The extensive facilities include oceanfront relaxation lounges, steam rooms, saunas, and a Jacuzzi. Massages start at $120, body treatments at $75, and facials at $125. Day passes are $40.

2. The Kahala Hotel and Resort

  • Price: $493/night

The Kahala Spa offers an indulgent and – most significantly – very private spa experience. There are no common areas. Instead guests get the use of a 550-square-foot private suite for changing and post-treatment showering. Time in the infinity tub is included in some of the longer rituals, or can be added to any treatment for an additional fee. Massages start at $185, body treatments at $280, and facials at $220.

3. JW Marriott Ihilani Resort And Spa At Ko Olina

  • Price: $273/night

The JW Marriott’s day pass is one of Oahu’s best spa values. For $20, guests can use the 35,000-square-foot spa’s eucalyptus stream room, sauna, and Roman bath-style Jacuzzi. Massages and skin therapies range from $105 to $150.

4. Halekulani

  • Price: $503/night

SpaHalekulani is known for its Polynesian-inspired treatments, which draw on ingredients and techniques used by Oceanic and Asian cultures. Most treatments take place in private suites, like at the Kahala, but the spa lacks the extensive day facilities and ocean views of the Moana Lani Spa. Treatments vary greatly in length and price, but most facials and massages are between $140 and $280.

5. The Royal Hawaiian

  • Price: $284/night

The hotel’s spa is the independently operated Abhasa Spa. Treatments take place in an outdoor tropical garden. Pretty impressive, though The Kahala and Moana Surfrider spas offer treatments next to the ocean. Most services cost between $125 and $190.

6. Turtle Bay Resort
Turtle Bay Resort

  • Price: $280/night

Oahu’s undeveloped North Shore is far more relaxed than frenetic Waikiki, and Spa Luana takes full advantage of its location, offering a number of treatments outdoors. Spa goers can enjoy a pedicure on a terrace overlooking the ocean, or indulge in a massage in a private seaside hut. Skip the $15 day pass, which buys access to little more than a steam room and a small lounge.

7. Hyatt Regency Waikiki Resort And Spa

  • Price: $211/night

The Hyatt Regency’s 10,000-square-foot Na Ho’ola spa is surprisingly serene considering that it sits in a 1,229-room mega-resort right in the center of Waikiki. Its two 5th-floor relaxation rooms are great spots to sit back and watch the ocean, without having to partake in the ground-level pandemonium of Waikiki Beach.

Thanks Oyster, for doing the research and legwork for us!

I’ve never been really anywhere but my state and the 2 states right next to it, I hope to go to Greece before I die!

I’ve heard that Greece is absolutely amazing to visit. I haven’t been out of the country, unless one bit of Canada counts. I went to Alaska in 2001 and we popped over the country line to Canada. Alaska was gorgeous. I definitely want to go back there. And SO cool… I was there over the summer solstice and was out horseback riding at midnight and it was bright as day!

Hmm… this has the makings of a good “Bionic Asks”! We could all chat about travel! :-)
