I had two services here, a body scrub and a massage. Both were wonderful! What really made it special were the private outdoor cabanas where the services were done. You felt like you were outdoors, yet had privacy. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The lava showers were a cool ending to the treatment. My only complaint is the high... More

This place is amazing with private lava rock showers, hot tub, steam room, and sauna. You also have access to a co-ed lap pool and fitness center. You can order lunch and wine if you wish and make a day out of it. I love the facility and the male massage therapists are good and strong to work out all... More

I had high expectations, and my experience exceeded them! I had a lomi lomi massage, with add-ons of a coconut scalp massage and a coconut lemongrass body polish. It was the perfect combination of services, and Robin was wonderful...experienced, professional, and warm and friendly. Can't wait for my next trip when we return to Hawaii!!

Relaxing!! Wonderful! This spa is truly a special place. I had a warm stone massage with Crystal. She is a great masseuse. It was 70 minutes of total relaxation. I went in with tension in my muscles and left feeling totally relaxed and invigorated. Treat yourself and give Anara a try.

Our spa day here confirmed my suspicion that some of the best massage therapists live in Hawaii. I had a great sports massage with Ann; her " medium to firm " pressure was one of the firmest I've had but she really knows what she is doing- I would recommend another style for those who are new to massage or...

I'm always skeptical of paying the jacked up prices for a hotel message but Anara was actually worth it. The facilities are lovely. Go before for a shower in the outdoor lava showers, then lay by the special spa pool (with great magazines!), then do a stream or whirlpool if you're not preggo. You're already relaxed when you get into... More

I've been visiting Kauai for over 15 years and always make a visit or two to Anara Spa. I love the Zen ambience and Polynesian feel. The outdoor therapy options are abundant and a treat to experience. This is hands down one of the best in class spa retreats.

My husband and I booked an entire day of pampering at Anara Spa. Extravagant? Yes. Worth it? Yes! Our package included a bubble bath in a private outdoor soaking tub, clay and sea salt rubs, massages, facials, manicures, pedicures and lunch. We left feeling rejuvenated and relaxed, albeit with much lighter wallets. If you want to splurge, this is a... More

We enjoyed our time at Anara. Great facilities: pool, hottubs, eucalyptus steam room, outdoor lava rock showers. They provide towels, robes, slippers, snacks, tea/coffee, water, and toiletries. The staff is friendly and the ambiance is very peaceful. Great massages. I highly recommend it- not just for the massage, but the full experience of unwinding time before and after as well.
