Designed to reflect the soothing colors of natural sands and marine textures, the new Hawanawana Spa at Four Seasons Resort Lanai (Hawaii) offers traditional treatments in an elegant modern setting. In Hawaiian, the name Hawanawana means whispering ocean or where the sea whispers upon the sand. Naturally, the sea is integral to the design throughout the eight-treatment-room haven. Four of the treatment rooms are couples’ suites, which feature rain showers, an intimate living and dining area, and side-by-side deluxe spa treatment beds. The bright spa is filled with natural sunlight and custom-made furnishings with ample space for lounging.
The menu is equally vibrant and features a variety of facials, massages, and body treatments using lines with a marine influence including OSEA and Tata Harper.
The signature services include:
Ocean Ritual ($500, 3 hours): This tranquil, soul-soothing body polish, massage, cranial flow therapy and hair conditioning treatment makes use of wild seaweed and undaria algae oil. The ritual ends with a nourishing Super Green Marine Bath.
Algae Ti Leaf Body Wrap ($225, 60 minutes): This cooling, aromatic wrap begins with wild algae, aloe vera and green tea gel, followed by a calming overlay of fresh ti leaves.
Pineapple Citrus Body Polish ($225, 60 minutes): Lanai was once known as the “Pineapple Island”; the signature scrub is based on an old family recipe and made in the resort’s kitchen. It leaves skin energized and smooth as silk.
Another standout service is Suite Serenity, a four-hour exclusive experience for two set in a private couples’ suite. It begins with a customized combination of massages, body treatments, or facials and comes to a close with an in-suite array of gourmet snacks to allow the duo to enjoy more quality time together. In addition to facials, massages, and body treatments, the spa also has salon services for hair, nails, and makeup available plus poolside abbreviated offerings for beach lovers of all ages in need of bliss.
