Located on the northern end of Ka'anapali Beach, The Westin Ka'anapali Ocean Resort Villas feels worlds away from its sister property, The Westin Maui Resort & Spa. At the Villas, it’s quieter and calmer, and the sprawling, spacious grounds — 26 oceanfront acres — make the resort seem less crowded. Spa Helani, which opened in May 2008, also has a completely different attitude. Think modern-contemporary, with earthy island touches, and of course, special treatments you will only find here.

The 10,000-square-foot facility offers plush, yet organic surroundings. Dark wood furniture complements the light bamboo floors; black and white gallery-style photography of tropical flora and fauna line the walls, while swaths of brightly-colored Hawaiian-print fabric add a shot of color to the all-white massage beds. Most stunning is the two-story floor-to-ceiling light fixture that imitates, if you think about it, the Westin’s famous rain showers. The scent of pure, virgin coconut oil, which is used in a number of treatments, fills the air and lends an instant reminder that you are on a tropical island.

Hawaiian-style treatments are the highlights here, and examples include the Lomi Lomi Massage — a traditional healing massage where practitioners use their hands and forearms in rhythmic and flowing patterns. Couples will enjoy the different massage options, all conducted in one of their three couples suites. The Kā'anapali Couples Ritual Massage starts with a tandem massage using coconut and lemongrass oil, and ends with a luxurious bath for two. 

There are a total of 13 treatment rooms, including massage, hydrotherapy and steam rooms, plus ocean view cabanas. Other traditional spa treatments are also available, including facials, body wraps, spa manicures and pedicures, and also waxing services. While there is no sauna or whirlpool bath available, the eucalyptus steam room more than makes up for it. The scented steam adds an invigorating pick-me-up to the usual spa experience — you might have to drag yourself away to get to your treatment, or to the beach, on time.
