Featuring Treatments and Services Inspired by Elements and Traditions of the Hawaiian Islands

WAIKIKI BEACH, HAWAII – February 8, 2017 – From the hot pōhaku stones of Hawai‘i Island’s fiery volcanoes to the cold rain-beaded kī leaves of O‘ahu’s lush rainforests, the balancing elements and healing power of the Hawaiian Islands’ natural resources are at the forefront of Waikīkī’s newest luxury spa oasis.

The Ritz-Carlton Spa debuts today on the island of O‘ahu at The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach, welcoming guests to discover customized treatments and services inspired by traditional Hawaiian healing methods and Hawai‘i’s natural surroundings. Located on the 8th floor lobby level of the newly opened luxury residential resort, the 3,400-square-foot spa serves as a tranquil respite above the vibrant and bustling streets of Waikīkī, featuring a contemporary and elegant space in two levels with three treatment rooms; men and women’s locker rooms; rainforest shower; eucalyptus steam room; dry cedar sauna; and retail and reception area.

Hawaiian Rainforest Naturals Co-Founder and Hawaiian cultural practitioner Melia Goodenow of Hawai‘i Island developed the spa menu offerings and the signature treatments highlighting the natural surroundings found in the ahupua‘a subdivision of Waikīkī stretching from Mānoa Valley to Waikīkī Beach. All signature treatments commence with the Henoheno Ritual where guests are presented with a warm and cherishing Hawaiian welcome of ‘ano‘ai ke aloha before embarking on their journey with a foot bath that features a light lomilomi foot massage with exfoliation using yellow ginger flower essence. Signature treatments include:

Inspired the Hawaiian traditional ‘awa rituals, this experience creates a personal place of peace through a cleared mind and renewed presence. The treatment includes ground leg and foot mask, deep lomilomi massage and scalp treatment.

Kī is a sacred plant that is traditionally used for spiritual and medicinal purposes. The kī plant will be used to huki, or pull, the toxins and tension to renew and cleanse the body, mind and spirit. This special treatment includes mud wrap, energizing lomilomi massage and scalp treatment.

Inspired by the upland forests of Mānoa, where the mist of the Tuahine rain blow down into Waikīkī, this treatment features healing ‘olena (turmeric) and native lehua blossoms that encourage vitality and rejuvenate the body. A full-body sugar exfoliation and an energizing lomilomi massage are included with this treatment.

Other treatments and spa services include herbal body remedies, massage therapies, facials and skin boosters. Additionally, the spa retail center features products by ESPA, The Ritz-Carlton Spa Fresh, Hawaiian Rainforest Naturals, Knesko, Coola, Yoga Balm and more. The Ritz-Carlton gift cards are also available for purchase, which can be used for spa treatments.
