Vist Maui: Spa Helani


Thanks to the Spa Helani, the Heavenly Spa by Westin, which is located in The Westin Ka`anapali Ocean Resort Villas, I was able to relax for an hour during a Customized Ritual by Salt of the Earth pedicure experience.

I rarely ever get pedicures (I've only had them twice before), and my feet definitely needed some pampering because of how rough and dry they were, so I knew this specific treatment would be just what I needed for my poor, tired feed.

Upon checking in at the Spa Helani, I was taken on a quick tour of the spa, where guests get access to a steam room, hydrotherapy room, shower, and indoor and outdoor relaxation lounges, as well as some light refreshments.









Maggie, the therapist, escorted me from the lounge to the pedicure room.

After choosing a nail color, I took a seat in a luxurious, cushioned pedicure chair, which had vibration massage.


Just before the treatment began, Maggie insisted I have a glass of champagne, so I happily obliged.
Who can resist champagne and chocolates?
After getting settled in to the plush chair, Maggie explained what the customized ritual would entail. First I selected an aroma from one of four scents (I chose Coconut Mango; also available were White Ginger, Toasted Coconut, and Cool Water). The scent was added to the foot soak, along with mineral salt, which helps to detoxify the skin,

The scent was also added to a cream, which was used for exfoliation and massage.  

I also could select an anti-aging or hyalurnoic booster for the treatment (I opted for the hyaluronic booster based on Maggie's recommendation).


After an hour of soaking, exfoliating, moisturizing, and massaging, and then clipping, filing, and painting my toenails, my feet felt soft and rejuvenated, and I loved the color on my nails!


Maggie was wonderful.  She made sure I was always comfortable, and explained each step of the process.  We also spent the hour chatting about restaurants, the islands, and just life in general!

I've only had pedicures twice before, but this was the first time that I was so relaxed that I nearly dozed off.

Even Maggie acknowledged how relaxed I was.

It was probably due to the fabulous massage chair.

Or the aromatherapy.

Or the champagne.

Or maybe Maggie just had that special touch.

It was probably a combination of all of the above.

I just know that I did not want the treatment to end!

Even though the focus was on my feet, as a whole I just felt wonderful.

After the treatment, I took some time to relax in the outdoor patio before heading back to the hotel room.

Spa guests are able to utilize the facilities until 6pm the day of service, and they also get a same-day 20% discount off of any product purchases.



If you need to get away from it all for an hour or so, be sure to make an appointment at Spa Helani!
