Famous Hawaiian Spa Transformed with US $55m Revamp

Hilton’s Grand Wailea, a Waldorf Astoria Resort, in Maui, has unveiled its meticulously reimagined spa.

Inspired by the Kilolani – stargazers of ancient Hawaii – the 50,000sq ft sanctuary’s concept centres on the Hawaiian moon calendar and is aligned with the natural currents of the world. Kilolani Spa’s transformation is the culmination of a US$55 million (€50.8 million, £43.5 million) investment and more than two years of work. Formerly The Spa Grande, the facility opened in its first guise in 1990 among 40 acres of lush tropical gardens, with design by renowned spa consultant Sylvia Sepielli.

We wanted to create more than just a spa; we aimed to craft a sanctuary where guests can reconnect with nature, immerse themselves in authentic Hawaiian healing arts and emerge revitalised.

— Michael Lahm, TLEE Spas + Wellness Vice President + COO
