We visited Laniwai on our family trip to Aulani. My husband and I have visited many spas in many different states. This was by far the very best spa we have ever visited. From the moment you enter you are swept away from the chaos and bustle of life to tranquility. After selecting a word (written on a stone) to... More

I did the express pedicure. I liked the little extras that were served to me : hot tea, mini muffin with a macaroon, and at the end a little pedicure kit. Since it was express I wasn't expecting anything, and it was a nice surprise. The express is otherwise as advertised; just the bare bones pedicure.

My favorite part of the experience here was the story it told. Before your treatment, you get to pick a stone, make a wish, and toss it in a pond. After you enjoy the spa, the wish comes back to you in the form of a scented shower scrub. It has a Hawaiian history to it and I adored it.... More

This is like the KING of spas! The smell assaults your senses immediately, but that deliciousness is only the beginning. If you are planning a massage, the Lomi, lomi is the best using both hot stones and sticks. The treatments, as good as they are, are only part of the experience. There is a relaxation room with comfy lounges stocked... More

I went to this spa because we stayed at the Aulani. From the moment you step in, the magical experience begins. It's not a traditional run-of-the-mill spa but so much more… I don't want to spoil all the surprises. The actual massage I received was incredibly relaxing and worked out all my kinks. There is an indoor and outdoor relaxation... More

This is way more than just the massage which was great - signature lomi lomi massage with a choice of aromatherapy oils. Do go at least 45 mins before the appt time. There's a whole hydrotherapy area to enjoy before and after the massage - aromatherapy steam room, sauna, 3 hot pools (one with jacuzzi jets), 6 different outdoor rain... More

We visited the spa in May 2016 - there were 5 in our party. From start to finish the staff were so attentive and helpful. Upon arrival we were all taken right away. We were led to an outdoor type of sanctuary first and spent about 30-40 minutes there. So relaxing. After, we were all led into the changing rooms... More

While vacationing at Aulani, my sister and I decided to book massages for ourselves. We booked at 730 pm the night before and were able to get 2 9 am appointments the next day. We both booked 50 min signature lomi lomi massage. They are expensive but it is Disney and you are paying for the whole experience. We were... More

I just returned from my vacation in Hawaii relaxed and refreshed in part because of my experience at this SPA! Let me start off by saying thanks to management for the email they send out with step by step instructions on my upcoming spa visit (I had missed their call). It was detailed and appreciated. I was greeted so kindly... More

I have never enjoyed a spa experience anything like the Laniwai Spa. I would recommend it to absolutely anyone. Be sure to go to your appointment early and take advantage of all the amenities.
