We enjoyed a couple's massage here. Prices are high considering there are no other spa facilities, just a massage hale by the beach, but it's worth a splurge. You simply cannot beat a massage with the sound of waves crashing. My massage therapist listened to my needs and provided one of the best massages I've ever had. Definitely treat yourself... More

Wonderful experience for a couples massage. Not cheap by any means but well worth it if celebrating a special occasion as we were. The sounds of the waves on the beach are perfect to go along with a great massage.

Scrubs, massage, and all the things a princess needs. I had such a stressful trip - this totally is what I needed for the plane ride back.

You don't have to stay at the Makena Beach Resort to use the Makena Kai day spa, but we did. We booked our beachside massages on our departure day and were not disappointed. Jill gave an amazing massage and targeted the areas necessary to relieve my frequent headaches, with attention to the rest of my body and focus on relaxation.... More

This was a wonderful experience... My husband and I had the beach side couple's massages. I think it lasted 80min, but we were both asleep after 30min :o) Unfortunately, we didn't use the spa facilities... There was simply too much to do on the island.

Having a couples deep tissue massage on the beach is pricey BUT so worth it! The ladies are excellent and made us so relaxed for the remainder of our vacation!

My husband and I were on vacation in Maui. We stayed at the Makena Beach and Golf Resort. The place is beautiful. I bought an 80 minute Full Body Massage. It was the most beautiful setting I have ever seen. We were RIGHT above the beach (so it was private) but close enough to hear all the waves. The trees... More

The idea of oceanfront, cabana spa treatments is GREAT, and the treatments themselves were fantastic -- overall, RECOMMENDED, despite the "poor" rating. The problem is, there are no changing areas, no "spa" activities. It's not a spa, it's massages offered at the hotel. I would suggest doing it, because the sound of the ocean and the cool breeze is unforgettable.... More

The spa is located by the beach....but it is totally private and quiet. We had a lomi massage - lying on the bed, listening to the waves hitting the shore and feeling the breeze as we were massaged was the most amazing and relaxing spa trip I have ever had....a definite must do!!
