Grand Wailea, A Waldorf Astoria Resort in Maui, has announced the opening of its eagerly awaited Kilolani Spa, an open-air luxury spa set amongst Hawaii’s breathtaking scenery. Spanning 50,000 square feet, Kilolani Spa is the largest in Hawaii and has been designed to preserve the heritage of the landmark hotel and honour local traditions.

“Kilolani Spa truly embodies our commitment to honouring Maui’s rich wellness culture, while embracing the modern innovations of the spa industry,” said JP Oliver, Managing Director at Grand Wailea. “We look forward to offering our guests personalised treatments imbued with local influences, natural ingredients, and the aloha spirit.”

The concept for Kilolani Spa, named after Hawaiian astronomers, centres on the Hawaiian moon calendar and is inspired by the Kilolani, Hawaiian stargazers who used the moon to guide all aspects of daily life. Following the Helu Pō (moon cycles), the spa’s programming continuously evolves in tandem with the 10-day moon period (anahulu) and features native botanicals, signature products hand-crafted on Maui, and holistic treatments.

Boasting a $55 million investment, Kilolani Spa features 40 treatment rooms, including suites for couples, a meditation lounge, reflection lounge, hammam, halotherapy-infused infrared saunas, and hydrothermal gardens.

The open-air Hydrothermal Gardens feature cleansing showers, a sauna, a steam room, a vitality pool, waterfall showers, and a garden. Connecting these spaces is the coed Hydrothermal circuit designed to welcome groups to experience wellness together. At the heart of Kilolani Spa is the only Hammam in Hawaii – a multicultural sanctuary designed for communal rituals and private treatments. Outdoors, the Saltwater Pool is a soothing flotation experience, flanked by Halotherapy-infused infrared saunas.

There are also a variety of fitness and wellness facilities and experiences, ranging from Hawaii’s first-ever biostation to leading-edge fitness equipment and mind/body and movement classes.

The Meditation Lounge provides a space for guided meditation using innovative harmonic therapy, while the Reflection Lounge offers diverse seating options for individuals and groups, along with inspiring ocean views.

The Movement Studio hosts a robust lineup of daily classes that include beach yoga and group cycling classes, while the fitness centre provides equipment from the likes of Peloton and Technogym. The biostation features anti-aging and wellness services with the goal of redefining preventative healthcare.

Kilolani Spa will also debut a new type of sound healing that blends harmonic sound therapy with Oli, Hawaiian chants for wisdom, wellbeing, and preservation. This powerful experience is designed to clear negative energy and improve overall wellbeing.
