THE TREATMENT: ʻAwa Remedy | Willow Stream Spa at Fairmont Kea Lani
WHAT IT INCLUDES: For centuries, Polynesians have revered ʻawa as a medicinal plant known to release tension and soothe sore muscles. Inspired by Hawaiian warriors who used the root to relieve bodily stress, this treatment is perfect for modern-day athletes. The spa’s citrus sugar scrub prepares the skin for the healing powers of an ʻawa and aloe body mask that’s followed by an invigorating head-to-toe massage.
WHAT IT’S GOOD FOR: While ʻawa is typically consumed as a beverage, incorporating it into a massage effectively relaxes tense muscle tissue. Its warming nature helps to increase peripheral blood flow.
WHAT IT COSTS: 90 minutes, $279; available as a couple’s experience

THE TREATMENT: CelestialBlack Diamond Facial | The Spa at Four Seasons Maui
WHAT IT INCLUDES: If Marilyn were alive today, it’s likely she’d be singing the praises of a facial that literally covers you in diamonds. As its name suggests, actual nano particles of diamonds are in this face mask. Working in concert with other spa products, “diamond dust” transports ingredients more deeply into the skin. LED light and oxygen therapy are also integrated into the luxe treatment, promising to zap bacteria, stimulate collagen production, and reduce inflammation.
WHAT IT’S GOOD FOR: Designed to shrink pores, brighten complexion, and plump tired skin, the so-called “red carpet facial” is said to be a go-to for celebrities facing the klieg lights and flashing bulbs, so you can be confident this treatment has been field-tested.
WHAT IT COSTS: 80 minutes, $495
