The Spa at Black Rock at Sheraton Maui Resort and Spa
At The Black Rock Spa, treatments incorporate the mystical healing that emanates from Pu'u Keka'a (Black Rock). Spa Director Tracy McIntyre shares insight into the Black Rock Spa experience.
Why You’ll Love It: Guests love the feel of “Hawaiiana” when they first enter the Spa at Black Rock, from the interior design and décor, to the warm embracing feeling of aloha from the spa team.
Key Features: We are a boutique spa and pride ourselves on providing a comforting environment. We have an open air relaxation lounge that flows into an intimate patio area. We also have several open air treatment rooms, letting the guests enjoy the flowing trade winds as they experience their spa treatments. Guests experience harmony and well-being for the mind, body and spirit, inspired by the culture and traditions of Hawaii, brought to you with Aloha.
Bonus: We’ve created a delicious, freshly made special water refreshment made of fresh citrus, pure sugar cane sticks and island vanilla. Guests love it!
Spa Snacks: We have a tea menu that allows the guest to choose from an array of beautiful fragrant teas.
Splurge Treatment: I would start with our authentic Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage and then add a Maui Mikana Body Treatment. The Lomi Lomi massage, or “massage with loving hands,” was passed from generation by Hawaiian healers. This full body massage uses beautifully flowing long and rhythmic massage strokes while incorporating a specialty “lomi stick” and organic Hawaiian lemongrass ginger oil, enhancing relaxation and reducing muscle tension.
The Maui Mikana Body Treatment is rejuvenating and refreshing, with a sugar body scrub of tropical pineapple and papaya that gently exfoliates the skin, before application of an exotic tropical fruit body butter that leaves the skin soft and silky. Both treatments are inspired by the islands, with locally-made products by Ola Hawaiian Body Products. Ola means life or well-being in the Hawaiian language, and Ola Tropical Apothecary is centered on the Hawaiian concept of beauty and wellness, with anti-aging and skin balancing properties of pure tropical oils and fresh, locally grown, indigenous organic ingredients.
Insider Favorite: The Spa at Black Rock Signature Massage is a treatment that the spa team created and it’s very special. Utilizing artisan wild crafted products made in Hawaii, guests will enjoy a massage with an exclusive organic oil blend of coconut, sunflower and passion fruit followed by a unique combination of a taro and honey mask generously applied to the hands and feet. This tropical treatment leaves guests feeling renewed and refreshed.
Featured Products: Ola Hawaiian Body Products, Queen Bee (Maui Made) & Eminence Organics
