Ho’omana Spa Getaway in Maui
Aloha serenity, zen, and peace. Ho’omana stands for empower yourself, and that is exactly how I felt leaving this place. The positive and relaxing energy here is definitely a treat to rejuvenate yourself and truly feel like you are on vacation. I was up at 2am that morning to see the Haleakala sunrise followed by a bike ride so you can imagine how much I was looking forward to this after an early adventure! They are conveniently located in Makawao which makes the perfect stop after a visit to the volcano. What makes Ho’omana Spa Maui stand out from others is that their treatments are drawn from Hawaiian teachings and practices, bringing a more authentic experience physically and spiritually. There is a sense of peace that envelopes you throughout the spa grounds, making this space the perfect getaway in Maui.
Ho’omani is located up the mountain in a quiet, secluded residential area surrounded by natural beauty.
There is plenty of parking available and you are greeted with a stunning space filled with fruit trees and greenery.
Ho’omana Spa offers a variety of spa rituals, lomi lomi massages, herbal bath soaks, body treatments, and facials. They also offer retreats throughout the year for training. The spa has a large lobby with different homemade products with body butters made out of passionfruit, lemongrass or lavender to name a few.
There is a beautiful outdoor bathhouse for two which made their space that much more special. It is a private bathhouse that fits two tubs, perfect for privacy and relaxation in the mountains of Maui.
We started with a 30 minute bath soak and each tub was already filled with hot water, flavored water, and a little bag of delicious smelling herbs with lavender to soak the tub in. The bath experience loosened up my muscles perfectly before the massage.
Now I was ready for my massage! I did their signature Lomi Lomi massage treatment which includes a mini hot stone foot massage and a coconut rosemary scalp treatment. Meggie started off with a Hawaiian chant which was very soothing and relaxing. She was very knowledgeable in each area and targeted areas I had more tension in and would check in to make sure the pressure was enough. She used interesting techniques I’ve never experienced , my body melted into true relaxation.
They have multiple spacious rooms with natural lightning and comfortable space. Some rooms come with private bathrooms or bathtubs for couples. Everything was very clean and welcoming.
My body was ready for more adventures after!
