It's 10:00 Monday morning. You're already dreaming about 5:00 Friday night .
Your big plans after running ragged at work all week consist of a slow commute back home for some nuked take-out leftovers and "Sex and the City" reruns.
How about a reroute, to relax in Waikiki? The Moana Lani spa, in the historic Westin Moana Surfrider hotel, has just launched a heavenly Rediscover Wellness package just for kamaaina, designed to knock your off-kilter life back into balance.
You begin at Waikiki's only oceanside spa with a moment of contemplation over a handful of sea and volcanic salts. The alaea will later be released back into the ocean, taking your negative thoughts with it. Then experience a 50-minute classic massage with aromatherapy to work out whatever worked you up throughout the week. Finally, unwind with an 80-minute Hawaiian vanilla and clay facial or body wrap.
It's not just 2+ hours of bliss away from your phone. Spa visitors also receive all-day access to the soothing lounge, whirlpool, steam room, and sauna; all fronting floor-to-ceiling windows that bring the sounds and scents of the seashore inside. If you want, take advantage of complimentary use of the Moana Surfrider's workout room for a heart-pumping session overlooking busy Kalakaua Avenue.
And on the way out, browse the exclusive beauty and skincare lines in the gift shop meant to let you bring your spa day back to your own bathroom.
Meaning when the road gets rocky, you'll be able to roll with the tide.
The Rediscover Wellness package is available to kamaaina only through the end of February for a special price of $260. The oceanfront couple massage room is available for an added fee. Call 808.237.2535 for reservations.
