Hale Hoola Spa in Volcano
Those staying in Volcano or Hilo have quick and easy access to the body treatments, massages, and facials—and at far more reasonable prices than on the other side of the island. Hale Hoola's menu features a bounty of local ingredients and traditional Hawaiian treatments, including a handful of unique Hawaiian massages, such as lomi hula, which is lomilomi massage choreographed to hula music; laau hamo, which blends lomilomi with traditional Hawaiian and Asian healing herbs and plant extracts. Popokapai is a divine blend of hot-stone massage and laau hamo that incorporates lomilomi massage with warm compresses filled with healing herbs. Facials and body scrubs use the traditional ginger, coconut, and macadamia nuts, but also some surprises, including taro, vanilla, and volcanic clay. www.halehoola.net.
