Best Spa on Maui, Top Ten in US, the Spa Grand at the Grand Wailea


 

Spa Grand at the Grand Wailea Just South of Kihei on Maui Is Noted for It's Water Treatments, Including the Eucalyptus Steam Room


Having just oohed and aahed about the amazing online reviews for the Waihua Spa, Ritz Carlton, Kapalua near Lahaina, Maui, we turn our attention to another Maui spa just an hours drive south in Wailea.  In this case, there are hundreds of reviews, and having read most of them, the only negatives seemed to be the occasional bad massage, or the chance situation where something wasn't working right.

There were some who wished for less nudity or more nudity in the ladies section, and those who wished the eucalyptus steam room, saunas, and other relaxtion areas were co-ed (they're not).  But the overall score was again over 4.5 out of 5 stars, and the difference seemed to be the number of therapies available, including the five specialty baths and the Terme Hydrotherapy Circuit.


The Five Specialty Baths at the Spa Grand


Voted "Top 10 Spas in the United States" by Condé Nast Traveler and Travel & Leisure magazines, Spa Grande at the Grand Wailea is the best spa on Maui and one of the most luxurious resort spas in Hawaii. Spa Grande offers a wide array of treatments that reflect a balance between the traditions of the east, west and ancient Hawaii. Experience a harmonious infusion with one common goal - to unite one’s inner wellness and outer beauty. There is no Maui resort spa like it.
These reviews give a flavor of the 300 or more that you can go peruse if you so choose.


You can now enjoy to luxury of eucalyptus oil in a regular shower, too.  Buy our 8 ounce spray bottle of 100% pure pharmaceutical grade eucalyptus oil for you home shower or steam room.

I did quite a bit of spa browsing and deliberating before I settled on Spa Grande and I was so glad I did.  "Settled" is the wrong word because it was wonderful.  What definitely sold me was the fact that their hydrotherapy circuit was included with any treatment.  I'm a sucker for any and all hydrotherapy and I was not disappointed.  You are given an hour to spend between multiple pools, including "five aromatic baths, a Japanese Furo Bath, a Cascading Waterfall Massage, the Roman Hot Tub, a Cold Plunge Pool, a Swiss Jet Shower, or Eucalyptus Steam and a Redwood Sauna."  I ran out of time and didn't even make it into the Roman tub, steam or sauna rooms or the cold plunge pool because I was enjoying the five baths and waterfall way too much.  My favorite salt bath was definitely the Maui bath (coconut and blue sea salt), but they were all amazing.  I couldn't believe it when my hour was up; I'd definitely go back another time and pay the fee that allows you use of all the pools.  I had the Island Flowers body wrap/scrub treatment and loooooved it.  Mariah was amazing and so friendly, I'd definitely recommend requesting her.

Some friends and I wanted to relax in luxury without breaking the bank so we decided to purchase the 2-hour terme hydrotherapy package at Spa Grande.  Although, we weren't able to partake in massages and facials, the terme baths did not disappoint.  There are 5 different essential oil/mineral soaking baths, 2 jacuzzi/cold plunges (one Western style and one Japanese style), a sauna, a Eucalyptus-scented steam room, 3 waterfall showers, and 2 needle showers.  The spa is spacious and very relaxing.  The staff is very helpful and friendly - they didn't seem to notice that my friends and I stayed in the spa an extra 40 minutes after our 2 hours we up.  Also, be sure to take advantage of the upstairs lanai - you'll get an incredible ocean view.  If you're local, be sure to claim your kamaaina discount.  The 2-hour terme packages comes to $50 once the kamaaina discount is applied, and it comes with a complimentary mini body scrub.

We received this spa treatment as a wedding gift from my daughters, and it is definitely a gift that we will never forget! We arrived just in time for our Hot Stone Massage, so we didn't have time to enjoy the Terme Hydrotherapy Circuit before our massage. The massage was very relaxing, and very enjoyable! After our massage, the young man at the Front Desk spoke with his manager, and was able to get a 2-hour visit for us to the Hydrotherapy area, and we used it the next day....wow!!...what a treat, and what great service! This young man went above and beyond! This is certainly something you will want to do....from the salt baths, to the eucalyptus steam room, to the whirlpool and sauna, and the Swiss jet and waterfall showers....and take your time to enjoy it! This Spa is well worth it!
