Hawaii Island Retreat Maluhia Spa
This peaceful and elegant sanctuary in North Kohala offers three artfully appointed indoor treatment rooms and two massage platforms outside that overlook the valley. The spa is first-rate, with handcrafted wooden lockers, rain-style showerheads, and a signature line of lotions and scrubs that's made locally. The owners also create their own scrubs and wraps from ingredients grown on the property. The Papaya Delight lives up to its name, and features roasted ground papaya seeds mixed with goat yogurt and geranium. The roster of massages includes lomilomi, Thai, and deep tissue. Try the Shirodhara treatment of warm oil slowly drizzled over your third eye. www.hawaiiislandretreat.com.
