A few Saturdays ago, I was invited by the Moana Lani Spa to spend the day basking at their tranquil oceanfront oasis. Nestled inside the Moana Surfrider, a Westin Resort and Spa, the Moana Lani is perfectly positioned to offer its bliss seekers the ultimate in relaxation and pampering. If you have never been, let me start by setting the scene. Guests are invited to relax and unwind both pre and post treatments in the Spa lounge, where the beauty of the turquoise Pacific and gently swaying palms are the main attraction. Let the sound, scent and sight of the ocean fill every corner of your mind as the most gorgeous beach day plays out from the view of your lounge chair.
On my day at Moana Lani, I enjoyed a Heavenly Signature Massage and Personalized Facial. Choosing the stone of my choice (love, gratitude or hope), I set my intention, while the aromatic oil and expert touch of the Moana Lani's therapists worked their magic. After the expert rub down and glass of champagne, it was time for a facial, which included all natural ESPA products that worked to deeply cleanse and exfoliate my skin through a mask and massage.
After the treatments, the world class view of Waikiki's shoreline continued from the sauna and hot tub as did my state of pure bliss. Days spent like this remind me of how important it is to take care of myself. And, if I need help with that, the Moana Lani Spa has me covered both head to toe, heart and mind.
