Spa Grande, Grand Wailea Resort
Built to satisfy an indulgent Japanese billionaire, this 50,000-square-foot spa makes others seem like well-appointed closets. Slathered in honey and wrapped up in the steam room (if you go for the honey steam wrap), you'll feel like royalty. All treatments include a loofah scrub and a trip to the termé, a hydrotherapy circuit including five therapeutic baths with Hawaii-grown esssences. (Soak for 10 minutes in the moor mud to relieve sunburn or jellyfish stings.) The circuit includes a Japanese Furo bath, waterfall massage, cold plunge pool, jet showers, and a large Roman hot tub. To fully enjoy the baths, plan to arrive an hour before your treatment. Free with any treatment, the termé is also available separately for $55 for two hours. At times—especially during the holidays—this wonderland can be crowded. When it isn't, it is quite difficult to pry yourself away. www.grandwailea.com.
