SpaHalekulani has long been celebrated for its innovative spa experiences thattransport guests through a cultural journey of beauty and renewal by incorporating legendary healing practices and local ingredients from Hawaii, Asia and Polynesia.  To launch the New Year, SpaHalekulani introduces the eco-friendly Waterless Pedicure and Manicure, making SpaHalekulani the first in the state to offer guests a luxurious hand and foot service without the gallons of water that is usually employed per pedicure service. The introduction of the waterless nail services reinforces SpaHalekulani’s position as a leading spa with a strong focus on sourcing local ingredients and sustainability.

“A pampering experience that is not only healthier for our guest but is environmentally friendly,” said Spa Director Lena Mossman. “The cleaning chemicals required and the amount of water used in a standard nail service have the potential to affect our ocean and sea life, which encouraged us to find a solution to reduce our carbon foot print. We are proud to finally introduce a resolution that is both luxuriously pampering, healthy for each client and eco-friendly.”

Each experience begins with a softening warm towel, which is then followed by nail shaping and cuticle conditioning with the new cuticle balm designed for SpaHalekulani in the exclusive scents of Waianuhea and Manoa Mint. The experience is completed with gentle callus removal, exfoliation and soothing massage. For a treat the deluxe nail experiences include steam therapy, mask and paraffin treatment.  Throughout the experience, the guest relaxes in the spa’s new Zero-Gravity chairs by Human Touch. Designed to place the body in a virtually weightless position that doctors recommend as the healthiest way to sit, the Zero-Gravity chairs help relieve back pain and sore muscles.

“SpaHalekulani aims to stay authentic to the cultures of Hawaii, Asia and Polynesia, while elegantly incorporating advanced spa technologies and amenities that deliver a heartfelt experience with each service” says Mossman.
