From its farmland setting on the western slope of the Haleakala volcano, this 24-room retreat sends guests down to the coast in a shuttle for Aqua Craniosacral Therapy, a gentle, wave-like massage that relieves compression in the neck, spine, and sacrum. In an oh-so-Maui touch, Lumeria’s version can be performed right at sunrise, as you float on the surface of the Pacific Ocean.

A 50-minute flight from Bali, this surfers’ retreat turned upscale hideaway just launched a Spa Safari to a private, hotel-owned beachside lounge in the Nihi Oka Valley. Guests of Nihiwatu have the run of a clifftop dining area, pool, and cluster of spa huts. They can also swim in the Indian Ocean between unlimited massages, cooling body wraps, and natural scrubs made from garden-sourced ingredients.

For long-weekend guests who may not want to spend any of their precious Caribbean time indoors, the three-hour Sulphur Seduction trip visits the dormant Soufrière volcano’s black sulfur pools for a soothing soak and a slathering of the mineral-rich mud. After a fresh-air rinse under a waterfall, the whole experience is capped with a 20-minute massage back at the spa at Viceroy Sugar Beach.

In precolonial times, the Tuscarora and Iroquois people soaked in the eight natural springs here. Since then, countless blissed-out guests, including 13 U.S. presidents, have followed suit. The latest twist is the two- to three-hour Eternal Springs Guided Hike at the Omni Bedford, which stops at each of the springs and incorporates stretching, meditation, and bits of history along the way.
