The spa is really incredible, you can get there early and make use of light snacks and beverages or their hot tub/pool. Its a very relaxing environment. I received the Anara massage which was amazing. The private room had a view of outside but still a wall so it felt private. Afterward I was welcome to use the sauna or... More

I have never had a massage as good as this one. The woman who was my masseuse knew exactly what to do. I cannot recommend the spa enough..

We were staying at the St. Regis but booked our treatments here because we had heard of the amazing outdoor spa facilities. When we checked in for our treatments I begin to regret that we had not stayed at the St. Regis for our treatments. The staff was not very friendly. They pointed me to the women's locker room versus... More

My husband and I are staying at the grand Hyatt Kauai and I couldn't resist popping into the spa for a little relaxation. We took yoga class in a gorgeous room. Sort of like a glass walled pagoda surrounded by tropical plants. The teacher was awesome- asked for requests & lead a fabulous hour long class. The workout space is... More

My husband and I experienced the couples retreat. This took us back to the nicest part of the spa. The pool area is a bit clinical and the locker room small. Our pedicures were done by two lovely ladies who had worked there for 15 plus years. Overall, it was a nice day.

I went here with my wife and brother. The consensus was that we all thought the massages were good, not great. The facilities are really quite nice. However, for almost $1000 for the three of us, I would have expected a next-level amazing massage, which none of us could claim. While we all enjoyed our visit, I think we will... More

I was really looking forward to relaxing at the spa and I desperately needed a facial. I got the 50 min Custom Anara facial. The facility was just ok, locker room area was small especially when crowded. I don't have any major complaints about the facility, it is nothing special though. The fitness center was great, they offer headsets in... More

We recently spent a week at The Hyatt and my husband booked a facial, massage and hair treatment on my birthday. The spa prices are much higher than nice resorts we've visited and less amenities included. The gym area in spa was nice although the Pilates instructor did not show to teach a class I attended. The pineapple lychee water... More
