Western Oahu — only 30 minutes from Waikiki — is tranquility personified. The Ihilani JW Marriott Resort at Ko Olina and its stand-alone Ihilani Spa draw their mood from the curative sea. The spa, though expansive, feels intimate, and its therapists, trained the Hawaiian way, offer lomi lomi techniques by island healers with a buffet of native harvested products and treatments. Those who get too much sun should consider the $65 Ihilani Cooling Ti-Leaf Wrap. And for that smooth-as-silk feeling, the Scrub bar provides an array of exfoliating options.
