Anara Spa at the Grand Hyatt Kauai
Ankara Spa at the Grand Hyatt, Kauai honors a culture rooted in the balance and wisdom of nature. Treatments weave traditional healing customs to inspire “lokahi”- balance and harmony of body and spirit. Spa Director Rachael McCrory shares the details to help you get the most out of the Ankara Spa.

Key Features: Anara Spa features a 24-hour full service fitness center, a variety of wellness and fitness classes, steam room, sauna, locker room, open air lava rock showers, 25-yard lap pool and Jacuzzis. All of this is included with a 50-minute or longer treatment. Fitness and yoga classes are offered daily.

This includes vegan and whey based protein shakes, pre and post workout enhancers, energy bars, kombucha, adaptogens, superfoods, coffee, MCT oil, and wellness supplements. From April 5th we will be launching a fitness meal program where we will offer three different meals each day. Each are made from lean, clean, and organic ingredients. These meals can be consumed at the spa or as grab and go. We will also begin to offer chia seed puddings and pre-cut fruit from April 5th.
Splurge Treatment: The Lokahi package is a full day package provided in our lush tropical garden and includes an orchid strewn bubble bath and your choice of an Escape, which are our signature treatments. Lunch is enjoyed poolside and then you receive a customized facial and manicure and pedicure. It is a complete day of bliss!
Insider’s Favorite: The Kauai Clay! I believe this is one of the best treatments in the world. This unique treatment uses local awa root, traditionally used to ease anxiety and insomnia (has a numbing effect). The awa is polished over your body with coconut oil and warm stones which creates a light gommage (exfoliant). A rich mask of warm volcanic clay follows to detoxify and balance your system. Warm herbal compresses are layered over this and you are cocooned. Next, you have a rinse in your private outdoor shower and complete the experience with a soothing massage with local botanical lotion. This experiences leaves you incredibly relaxed and the combination of the awa and the heat makes you feel like you are floating.
