Experience Kilolani Spa at Grand Wailea, a Waldorf Astoria Resort

The iconic Grand Wailea, A Waldorf Astoria Resort in Maui has unveiled its much-anticipated Kilolani Spa, ushering in a new era of well-being with top-notch treatments and cherished Hawaiian rituals.

Grand Wailea, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, today announced the opening of its highly anticipated Kilolani Spa, a new open-air luxury spa spanning 50,000 square feet and adorned by Hawaii’s natural beauty. Designed to preserve the heritage of the landmark hotel and honor local traditions, Kilolani Spa is set to become the largest spa in the state.

“Kilolani Spa truly embodies our commitment to honoring Maui’s rich wellness culture while embracing the modern innovations of the spa industry,” said JP Oliver, Managing Director at Grand Wailea, A Waldorf Astoria Resort. “We look forward to offering our guests personalized treatments imbued with local influences, natural ingredients, and the aloha spirit.”

With an investment of approximately $55 million, Kilolani Spa features 40 treatment rooms, including couples’ treatment suites, a meditation lounge, reflection lounge, halotherapy-infused infrared saunas, hammam, and hydrothermal gardens.

Guided by the Moon, Rooted in Culture The spa’s concept, centered on the Hawaiian moon calendar, was developed by Grand Wailea’s in-house cultural and wellness team in collaboration with the renowned spa consultancy TLEE Spas + Wellness and Rachael McCrory, Hilton’s Regional Director of Spa & Wellness.

Hawaiian culture and indigenous healing arts were fundamental to TLEE Spas + Wellness’s vision. “We are thrilled to introduce guests to Kilolani Spa, where they can feel truly immersed in the spirit of Maui,” said Tracy Lee, President + Founder of TLEE Spas. “It was important to create an experience that honors and connects guests to Hawaii’s deep and diverse culture and wellness traditions.”

Inspired by the Kilolani, Hawaiian stargazers who used the moon to guide all aspects of daily life, the Kilolani Spa experience is aligned with the natural currents of the world. Following the Helu Pō (moon cycles), the spa’s programming continuously evolves in tandem with the 10-day moon period (anahulu’s) and features native botanicals, signature products hand-crafted on Maui, and holistic treatments.

Debuting a new type of “sound healing,” Kilolani Spa has developed a unique blend of harmonic sound therapy with Oli, Hawaiian chants for wisdom, wellbeing, and preservation. Spearheaded by Kalei Uwekoolani, Grand Wailea’s Cultural Programming Manager, this powerful experience is designed to clear negative energy and improve overall wellbeing.

Design to Reflect a Sense of Place Tihany Design, a renowned design atelier with a focus on luxury hospitality, utilized the concept of kilolani to design open-air spaces and embrace Hawaii’s natural beauty. The spa’s various lounges and treatment spaces, as well as its full-service salon and studio, provide a range of social and private settings for individuals, couples, and groups.

The open-air Hydrothermal Gardens feature cleansing showers, a sauna, a steam room, a vitality pool, waterfall showers, and a garden. Connecting these spaces is the coed Hydrothermal circuit designed to welcome groups to experience wellness together. At the heart of Kilolani Spa is the only Hammam in Hawaii – a multicultural sanctuary designed for communal rituals and private treatments. Outdoors, the Saltwater Pool is a soothing flotation experience, flanked by Halotherapy-infused infrared saunas.

The Meditation Lounge invites guests to partake in guided meditation using innovative harmonic therapy, while the Reflection Lounge offers diverse seating options for individuals and groups, along with inspiring ocean views.

Pathways to Fitness & Wellness Kilolani Spa also provides guests with a variety of approaches to fitness and wellness ranging from Hawaii’s first-ever biostation to leading-edge fitness equipment and mind/body and movement classes.

The Movement Studio hosts a robust lineup of daily classes including beach yoga and group cycling classes, and the fitness center offers best-in-class brands including Peloton and Technogym. The biostation features anti-aging and wellness services with the goal of redefining preventative healthcare.

To complete each guest’s holistic journey, Kilolani Spa offers a dedicated retail space filled with locally-made items including Kilolani’s signature Lokelani Essential oils and a wellness café which includes curated offerings from Erewhon crafted in partnership with the property.
