Spa at Mauna Lani Bay Hotel, Big Island

The spa at Mauna Lani Bay Hotel is a grand volcanic oasis: Lava rock forms the walls of outdoor showers, lines the paths to the treatment hale, and encircles the spa’s terrific open-air sauna; It’s also featured in signature treatments like the Lava Flow Body Wrap (from $230), for example, which uses warm volcanic clay to detoxify and re-mineralize the body. Without question, the highlight of the entire spa is the lava-enhanced salt water Watsu pool, where aquatic reflexology and prenatal massages are performed.

Treatments from $175; 68-1400 Mauna Lani Dr.; 808-885-6622;
