Prepare to be wholly transformed with the variety of amenities, therapies and educational seminars at the Hawaii Island Retreat's Maluhia Spa, situated on the northern tip of the Big Island. The founder's approach (she did the Spa Without Walls at the former The Ritz-Carlton, Mauna Lani) is steeped in the island's traditional, holistic practices and easy-on-the-earth living. For $195 per night, visitors can stay in one of the green retreat's seven yurts. These aren't just less costly than their standard hotel rooms, but they offer easier access to the intimate resort's 50 acres of exotic gardens, valley trails, coastal forests and lofty panoramas of the Pacific. Spa facilities feature an exercise pavilion, a hot tub and a salt-purified infinity pool, as well as a range of treatments with prices for all budgets. Economically minded guests may re-energize with an "applied kinesiology" massage starting at $65 or, for the same price, indulge in a head-to-toe exfoliation session with raw Hawaiian sugar cane and organic oils.
