Serene and lovely Willow Stream spas can be found throughout the international collection of Fairmont properties, including its Raffles branding (see Room at the Inn, P4) and Swissotels. But few would be as charmingly located as the award-winning facility at Fairmont Kea Lani, set across a 9ha flowered estate by the beach at Wailea on the south side of the Hawaiian island of Maui. There’s a local flavour to the treatment menu, especially massages of 60 or 90 minutes that focus on Hawaiian ingredients, such as botanicals, and old-time traditions of healing. The Pa’akai features island-sourced sea salt, organic coconut oil, ginger and passionflower while the Awa encompasses a salt scrub and aloe body mask. Hawaii’s oils are famously nourishing, and let’s not forget hot lava-stone massages and the long and rhythmic strokes of lomi lomi originated on these volcanic islands. While the treatment couches are supremely comfortable, there’s also the option to try the Wave table, which tilts, rocks and rotates, creating a feeling of weightlessness. This lightness of being could be a good thing after a meal at the resort’s Ko restaurant, which showcases Hawaiian produce and serves a delicious martini made with ginger puree.
