"Out with the old, and in with the new" was probably the motto at Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore, where the entire resort has been refurbished - and this includes the spa. Newly revamped and restyled Nalu Kinetic Spa - located inside this Honolulu hotel - offers a "multi-sensory experience of the ocean," as guests can see great ocean views and even hear the sound of surf crashing on the beach while at the spa.

They offer an innovative wave therapy massage table that gently rocks guests as if they were floating. Traditional Hawaiian warm salt stones calm guests down after an adrenaline surge, and a line of marine-infused products show tenderness to skin and hair that has been exposed to sun, salt and sand. Organic Spa Magazine named Nalu one of the nation's top 10 organic spas.
Fitness, yoga and bodywork programs are all also offered, with wonderful teachers and top-notch gear. In addition to massages, scrubs and fitness programs, Nalu Kinetic Spa also offers full hair and makeup services, which are often utilized by many of the on-site weddings.
The spa's high-end treatments are ideal for date nights, just before dining at one of the wonderful restaurants inside of the resort.
