NORTH KOHALA – Hawaii Island Retreat has announced the opening of its long awaited eco-spa, Maluhia, meaning peace, quiet, security, tranquility and serenity.

Reflecting pure blue skies and overlooking the beautiful valley below, the location of Maluhia Spa and pool is simply stunning. The infinity design of the pool lends a feeling of spacious expanse beyond its 50-foot by 16-foot dimensions. Purified with salt, the pool is not only inviting, but healthy for swimmers and environment alike.

In addition to the pool, the spa features nicely appointed men’s and women’s locker rooms finished in natural woods and tile, complete with organic shower products, reverse osmosis drinking water filters and solar hot water. Guests will also find an open air movement pavilion with hardwood floors housing exercise equipment and a place to gather with friends and family. There is also an open air reception area with a relaxation lounge overlooking the pool. A solar heated hot tub is found near the pool. Open air massage hales (house) overlook the expanse of the valley and the whispering ironwood trees, and bird songs provide the backdrop for therapeutic treatments performed by skilled, experienced therapists.

Maluhia Spa offers effective facial treatments utilized Epicuren and Dr. Dennis Gross products. Body services utilize signature creations featuring fruits, herbs and other seasonal gifts from the land, made fresh for each client, and are provided in nearby treatment rooms.

At Maluhia Spa at Hawaii Island Retreat, the goal is to magnify and support the natural healing that being in nature supplies through a distinctive menu of Hawaiian and other traditional, holistic treatments and massages.
