Kauai Health & Beauty
Anara Spa at the Grand Hyatt Kauai
1571 Poipu Rd., Koloa
It’s soothing just to lie still in one of the outdoor treatment-room cabanas, the smell of tropical blooms permeating the air. Once the treatments get going, they’re utter bliss: brightening peels, stimulating oxygen therapy, LED lights, and an especially pampering hot stone therapy designed to invigorate skin.
The Spa at Ko’a Kea Hotel and Resort at Poipu Beach
2251 Poipu Rd., Koloa
Locally grown coffee, Kauai clay, and essences from wild tropical flowers come together in the treatments at this spa that’s right on the beach. Few things are as relaxing as listening to the rhythm of the waves as you get a circulation-boosting face massage. If you’re sun-scorched, the Sun Comfort Facial feels effing fantastic with soothing layers of aloe, a noni superfruit mask, and a coconut scalp massage.
