Two years after welcoming its first guests, Hawai’i Island Retreat at Ahu Pohaku Ho’omaluhia, located in North Kohala on Hawai’i Island, is pleased to announce the grand opening of Maluhia Spa on April 1. In English, maluhia translates to peace, quiet, security, tranquility, and serenity. True to its name, Maluhia Spa provides the perfect environment to magnify and support the natural healing that being in nature offers.
At Maluhia Spa, open-air outdoor massage hale (bungalows) overlook a valley of ironwood trees, and a saltwater-purified infinity pool seamlessly blends into the surrounding landscape of ocean, cliffs, and sky. A solar-heated hottub sits nearby. Maluhia Spa draws nature indoors with a glass-walled spa/exercise pavilion and yoga studio that open up to spectacular views. Well-appointed treatment rooms provide the perfect ambience for soothing facials and body treatments. Eco-friendly men’s and women’s locker rooms come complete with organic shower products, reverse osmosis drinking water filters, and solar hot water. There is an open-air reception area with a relaxation lounge and a retail shop so you can take some of your spa experience home. Complementing its natural environment and peaceful architecture is a menu of traditional, holistic treatments and massages, as well as body services utilizing seasonal fruits and plants grown on the land.
