Day of indulgence
It's not too late to dash out to Ihilani Spa in Kapolei, to surprise mom today with an impromptu day of indulgence.
Among spa choices available are a full-day Pua Kai (Flower of the Sea) spa program that involves pampering from head to toe, along with a lunch entrée from the Spa Cuisine menu.
A relaxing soak with rose crystals in the hydro tub, will be followed by a 25-minute body scrub, an aromatherapy massage, manicure and pedicure, for $416 per person inclusive of tax and gratuity.
Spa guests also have access to the fitness lanai, lap pool, wellness classes, relaxation lounge and Roman pool. Gift certificates are also available for other occasions. Hint: dads appreciate pampering too.
For an appointment, call 679-0079 ext. 2421 or visit www.ihilani.com.
