Go To A Spa
Visiting a spa on Maui is a special treat for many singles and couples on their dream Maui vacation, but there are a lot to choose from and it depends on the type of experience that you want. The main difference in the type of spa on Maui is whether the spa is in a major big-name resort hotel or whether it’s a smaller independent business. Hotel spas tend to be more luxurious, offer more choice services and are a lot more expensive. Not to mention, at a large hotel spa you are likely to find some amazing decor and gorgeous views.
You could for instance choose to have your massage either indoors or outdoors on the beach. You can also choose aromatic baths, hydrotherapy, exfoliation, skin care therapy and so much more with so many varieties you are bound to find and experience your ideal spa day. While this would be amazing, you will need to watch your budget as just a few of these treatments can cost hundreds of dollars.
If you go to a spa that is not a part of a hotel, the prices will of course be cheaper, however the services will usually be less and it probably will not feel as luxurious as the hotel spa. If you do your research and find the right ones for you then you are bound to enjoy their services just as much as the more pricy ones and your wallet will be a lot happier.
One of the more known and popular spas from a lower end hotel is the Valley Isle Day Spa in South Maui. It is a smaller spa whose prices are good because it is not located on the ocean, but they do offer great services and you can have individual treatments or purchase a package. A very popular spa located at a higher end resort is the Spa Grande at Grand Wailea Resort Hotel which is the largest and most expensive spa that Maui has to offer. However, if you are going to do it you might as well go big. They have 25 types of different massages and they offer lots of different packages as well.
