Taking Relaxation and Rejuvenation to the Next Level
The opportunity for a therapeutic treatment is only one of the many pleasures the Plantation House Spa has to offer. Members will enjoy working out in a state-of-the-art fitness center, attending yoga or Pilates classes in the Movement Studio, swimming laps, taking a sauna or steam, enjoying the tranquility of the robe lounge, sunning at poolside or relaxing in a shaded daybed. The Plantation House Spa is imbued with a tranquil, garden-inspired ambience. Richly textured indoor/outdoor treatment rooms are the settings for members to experience a range of therapies drawn from timeless Hawaiian healing traditions. Treatments offered in the spa incorporate local botanical products, such as coconut, hibiscus, pineapple, papaya, lemongrass and coffee seed oil, to heighten the senses while providing therapeutic benefits. Each of the treatment rooms opens into its own private garden area, providing a unique open-air experience and allowing natural breezes to flow through.
The spa features a dramatic lap pool with a cascading waterfall, men’s and women’s locker rooms, outdoor showers, steam and sauna facilities, private relaxation areas, a movement studio, an extensive selection of fitness equipment and private outdoor exercise lawn. The spa boutique offers organic skin and body products such as the Epicuren line of anti-aging products and the latest in workout and yoga attire and accessories.
Tutu’s Cottage is a cozy spa retreat where members may enjoy a cup of tea and “talk story” with a healing practitioner or favorite “auntie” who is able to share information and insights on wellness, herbs and treatments.
Every aspect of the spa is designed to promote comfort, rejuvenation and a sense of well-being, with every spa service highly customized by a team of therapists who have undergone a minimum of 500 hours of rigorous training.
Signature Experiences As The Foundation of Wellness
The Plantation House Spa offers a wide range of personalized spa services, including various types of massage, body treatments, customized facial treatments and other services. Finishing touches such as nail services and hair styling are offered by special appointment.
A ritual foot bath is a prelude to all treatments. The therapist selects the nature of the ritual, Hawaiian, Asian Flair or Spiritual, according to guests’ needs and preferences. Members may select 60-, 90-, 120- or 180-minute treatments in any modality. The therapist customizes the experience based on what the member would like to achieve, from enhancing sleep, personal vitality or energy to enjoying softer skin or a more radiant appearance. Programs of treatment are also offered to facilitate detoxification, slimming or personal balance.
Specialty massages include: Hot Herbal Pouch Massage, Golfer’s Massage, Pregnancy Massage, Flexibility Massage, an underwater Hydrotherapy Massage and the traditional Hawaiian LomiLomi Massage. Massage duos include side-by-side sessions for couples, friends or family. The Plantation House Spa also offers instruction in massage for couples and parents.
After spa services, members may enjoy delicious spa cuisine created from the freshest local ingredients, many grown on Kukui‘ula’s own upcountry community farm or in the adjoining spa garden and chosen for their healing properties as well as taste and texture. Each spa experience concludes with members relaxing in a soothing space of their choice.
