“Ask for Michael”

Mandara Spa at the Wailea Marriott
Ranked #9 of 12 Spas & Wellness in Wailea
Attraction details
Reviewed January 29, 2012

GF booked a spa treatment here, so I scrambled to get a room at the Marriott Wailea, rental car, and flights from Oahu... Slightly backwards from typical vacation planning, but I'm glad we did it!

The package was for a Balinese body polish and a 50-minute lomi lomi massage.

In the men's spa area, amenities were nice, but there was no whirpool or sauna. They did have a steamroom though that works up pretty quickly. There was also a nice touch with a little waterfall in the lounge area while the massage rooms are prepped. Another nice touch was the bowl of lavendar fragrance they put under your face at the massage table... nice and relaxing.

The body polish was the first I'd had of the type and I chose the coffee variety (they let you look at samples and pick your scrub and massage oil). It exfoliated pretty well and it cleaned up the dry skin on my elbows and knees really well. If you're splurging, it's worth it, but if you're there for a budget pampering, the massage alone is awesome.

So I was skeptical of lomi lomi, as I'm more of a deep tissue guy. My therapist's name was Michael, and I would highly recommend him for anyone with knots, muscle spasms. aches, or whatever that needs to get worked out. He was very attentive to the areas where I was experiencing pain and told him about my bad posture and desk job... After working everything out, he showed me some stretches and tennis/golf ball massage techniques that you can do at home to get some relief. I think I slept 10 hours that night, I was so relaxed.

He's an avid runner and knows a lot about the area if you'd like to keep the massage conversational.

Overall, the spa here is run very professionally and my therapist was top-notch. I'll be returning my next Maui trip even if I don't stay at the Marriott.

great couples message outside! it was under a canopy with views of the water. we thoroughly enjoyed it especially after a long travel day from the east coast. we recommend getting a message the morning of the first full day you are there. great way to start off the trip!
