Lisa Hauser, NRi’s project manager, says “It was important that the interior design of Halele’a Spa embraced the natural element of water from two sources, known in Hawaiian as both “wai” (fresh) and “kai” (ocean).”
The potent minerals and trace elements from the sea in concert with the purity of Hawaiian fresh water aid in rejuvenation as guests are nurtured to living in balance with nature. The Halele’a Spa incorporates the healing properties of the indigenous plants of the lush tropics. The Spa’s signature treatments include the fragrant Maile Massage (dedicated to the Goddess of Hula) and the Kaua’i Red Clay and Taro Body Wrap. Other Hawaiian botanicals will include Niu (coconut), Awapuhi (ginger) and ‘Alaea (Hawaiian sea salt).
