Staying at the Aromatherapy Foundation was such a highlight of our trip. It allowed us to really experience Maui's "Upcountry" and gave us a new appreciation for aromatherapy and all of its wonderful benefits. It also have us a whole new perspective of Maui. The Grand Villa was spectacular (although probably too much house for just four of us). The... More

We are still enjoying the afterglow of a 9-night stay at the Maui Spa Retreat. Its self-description, "A place of rare beauty to restore balance to body, mind and soul with finely crafted and freshly prepared botanical treatments," is 100% accurate. We stayed at the recommendation of my sister, a long-time Hawaii resident, who participated in an extended healing arts... More

We so enjoyed our massage at the Maui Spa Retreat - a peaceful and calming experience in an amazing environment. The sauna starter warmed us up after a blustery few days of weather. The massage therapy was outstanding; one of the best massage experiences that we have had. I felt 'put back together', rather than taken apart as so often... More

I've never been to a spa before, so I can't really compare to other experiences, but as a first-time spa-goer, I thought this place was great. We did the yoga/massage couples package, and were really happy with it. You get your own little private cottage. It started with a private yoga session. The instructor was really good at judging our... More

So glad your first spa experience was such a favorable one. We pride ourselves on the best therapists, yoga teachers, hand crafted organic products, and unparalleled setting. Sorry the pool temp was too cool for you... this time of year it's meant to serve as a cold plunge. As for the hot tub,our apologies. We try to maintain it at... More

We got a couples massage on a rainy Maui day, and it was so amazing! The sauna felt great, the massage therapists were very sweet and the view is incredible. It feels like you have the whole place to yourself when you're up there, it is worth every penny! This was our second time getting a massage here, and we... More

I'm not a huge spa person, but my wife and I were in Maui for our honeymoon and I happened to stumble upon this place on TripAdvisor. Boy am I happy I did.

My husband and I treated ourselves to a 110 minute spa (10 min welcome, 20 minute sauna and shower, followed by 80 minute lomi lomi massage) whilst on our honeymoon. Both our masseuses were good and made us feel comfortable throughout. the Lomi lomi massage was a good massage (not overly firm). The hot towels at the end for our... More

Sounds like this may be more a matter of differences in customs than any real complaint with our spa. Some visitors to the US aren't used to adding a 15-25% service charge at restaurants, spas, hairdressers, valets, etc so we can understand how that would feel awkward. As you can see from our many 5 star reviews our guests feel... More

My family and I decided to treat ourselves for a hectic month etc. and chose Maui Spa Retreat because it sounded very interesting and offered a longer session than the other option we had. Doreena had arranged for 5 Therapists for us in the space of 2 hours. When we showed up early, there was no panic or shuffling. Doreena... More

its in 'upcountry' on Maui. you'll need GPS/Garmin to find this gem of a place! a beautiful ride up and worth the effort. Excellent spa/massage for a very reasonable price..much better than any hotel massage service. Try it, you'll love it! the couples massage is awesome!!
