We were staying at the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel and decided to take the short (two minute) bike ride to the spa and have a massage. It was kind of comical that they charge an extra $15 for a "deep tissue" (the extra things hotels are coming up with to pad the bills are exhausting). Nonetheless, we both loved our... More

All I can say is "WOW." Pamper yourself at this incredible outdoor spa and listen to the sounds of the ocean while you get massaged. The Mauna Lani Spa is beautiful and a delight to spend time in. Enjoy!

My husband has been going to the Mauna Lani Spa for about 7 years now. Had a great experience with Arnel who is no longer with the Mauna Lani ( he is now at the Four Season's spa and is FABULOUS!!) My husband always asks for a deep tissue, 80 minute and requests a male who is very strong. This... More

My wife and I have been to this spa twice and hav liked it both times. This time, we arrived and I was taken back to the locker area. Very nice. They offer a free foot bath which, trust me, wasn't much. You sit with your feet in this bowl with warm water and some oils or something. It's nice... More

I agree with DianeCanada609. This spa is nice, but not "one of the world's best." Here's the breakdown. Front Desk: The gentleman who took the reservation and attends the front desk deserves an A++. He is personable, very accommodating, and oozes "aloha spirit." Changing/Waiting Room: The lady who attended the changing room did a great job. She was knowledgeable, accommodating,... More

Very dated waiting area. Certainly not up to standards of other resort spas I've been to. Front desk staff very nice. Locker room area very small and did not even have hair brushes for use. Massage outside was nice but outside waiting room small and not luxurious. Expected much more because of its rating of top 10 in Hawaii.

We shopped around to find the best spa for a couples massage and decided to go with the Mauna Lani. Glad we did. Although it was very expensive ( over 500 dollars including tip for 80 minutes) it to me was well worth it. ( They all were about the same in price) The outside showers was a highlight in... More

we had a great couples outdoor lomi lomi massage here. indeed, i think i may have fallen briefly asleep while having my feet massaged. although it was only an hour massage, it felt like it took all afternoon and left me so relaxed. the outdoor showers were great. it would have been better if we, as a couple, could have...
