Oct. 11, 2011 - PRLog -- WAILEA, MAUI, HI. –  Grand Wailea, A Waldorf Astoria Resort’s Spa Grande is named the best hotel spa in Hawaii in the Travel + Leisure 2011 World’s Best Awards readers’ survey. The results are based on Travel + Leisure readers’ ratings of spas based on ambience, treatments, service, and value. Spa Grande has moved up to the number one spot from number two in the 2010 awards.

One of Spa Grande’s unique attributes, which is loved by many guests, is the one-hour complimentary access to the exclusive Termé Hydrotherapy Circuit as part of each treatment.  The hydrotherapy circuit includes: a Japanese Furo Bath, a cascading waterfall massage, a Roman hot tub, a Cold Plunge Pool, an invigorating Swiss Jet Shower, a Eucalyptus steam room, a Redwood sauna, and, of particular note, five Hawaiian sea salt baths.  As a leader in the industry, Spa Grande recently introduced the Hawaiian Sea Salts into the Termé Hydrotherapy circuit. The five sea salt baths are inspired by Maui and its neighboring islands as they combine all natural, freshly harvested premium sea salt with indigenous minerals, herbs, fruits and spices to represent the personality of each island.  The salts are also available for purchase, among other exclusive Spa Grande products, for guests to re-create their spa experience at home.

Spa Grande’s experienced therapists offer more than 100 treatments, many of which are infused with Hawaiian ingredients and practices.  The spa’s signature treatments include the Pala'au Journey, which is a Lomi Lomi massage, the Hula of massage, followed by a full body cocoon, scalp and foot treatment utilizing the healing plants of Hawaii; and Essence of Olena and Awa body therapy, which offers the ultimate relaxation with an exfoliation, cocoon & massage performed with a unique blend of ingredients indigenous to Hawaii.  To mark the resort’s 20th anniversary, which began September 2011, Spa Grande has unveiled a never-been-done before treatment named the 20-Hands Duo Massage.  Like all Spa Grande treatments, this special massage begins with a one-hour termé hydrotherapy circuit. Then the duo will be escorted to Spa Grande’s suites where they are welcomed with a 30-minute foot soak, exfoliation and pressure-point foot massage. To commence the massage, the 10 therapists harmonize the energy in the room and the use the hula wave to center the bodies’ energy. 100 synchronized fingers then massage the two bodies in unison creating pure relaxation and harmony.  The 20-Hands Duo Massage costs $2,000 and includes taxes and gratuities and is available until September 4, 2012.

The 50,000-square-foot Spa Grande affords guests the opportunity to unite one’s wellness, beauty and nature.  Offering first-time spa goers and frequent spa-savvy guests unique treatments with exceptional service, Spa Grande focuses on relaxation, rejuvenation and wellness with the use of Thalassotherapy, ancient Eastern and Hawaiian philosophies paired with advanced technology, making it a popular choice among resort and island guests.
