This a perfect activity for a rainy day in Kauai. My wife and I booked massages with short notice and they were able to accommodate us. At check in the staff was very welcoming and gave us a tour of the different amenities available to us. The 80 minute massage was the best massage we've ever had. We will definitely... More

Top notch spa for pampering with its own outdoor pool and separate hot tub areas for men and women. Added bonus of access to exercise room and classes. The spa services, while on the very expensive side, are in lovely settings, including private rooms many of which are open to a secluded garden setting. The massage therapists are terrific and,...

We reserved the 60 min couples massage. I have received regular massages over the last 40 years and my therapist, malia, was among the top 1%. The atmosphere and spa facilities were also excellent.

Was excited for my massage. Check in attendant wasn't very helpful and set a bad experience for the start. Guy walked me around the spa and nothing seemed friendly or inviting. The massage I had was good, but expensive for the price. Definitely wouldn't go back myself, but sure it's great for others. Hyatt diamond member, and spa was average... More

I was lucky enough to have two "Traditional Healing" treatments during out December vacation. These treatments are worth every penny and more. The spa itself is spacious, well-appointed, clean and relaxing. The showers, products, steams rooms and pool are luxurious and the commons ares are a lovely space to spend time before or after whatever treatment you choose. The Traditional... More

After a little mishap with my reservation, they gave me a complementary manicure. The spa is beautiful, if I had more time I would have booked a pedicure and possibly a massage. It was a nice way to end the vacation.

So relaxing to have the outdoor massage in a private cabana. The lap pool area could probably be updated a little, but the separate men's area had a jacuzzi, outdoor lava rock showers, a eucalyptus steam room, dry sauna and small lounge area. The best part was actually the waiting area outside that was really quiet and felt like you... More

Facilities are okay at this spa-not great. Pool has permanent swim lanes and isn't really meant for lounging. Also there are no servers coming around taking food and drink orders. You need to use the phone to call room service. Do not recommend getting a massage. During my massage the woman used body oil/ lotion on my face and rubbed... More
