Fruity Call

Keeping your skin glowing means deploying the forces of nature for the job. Like one of these spa treatments that use all-natural ingredients such as passion fruit, coconut, lemons, blueberries, and papaya. You’ll be buffed, polished, massaged, slathered and wrapped to perfection, ensuring a peaches ‘n’ cream complexion every time.

Go on, try one. It’s the ripe thing to do.

Tropical Passion Body Rejuvenation Treatment
Details: This three-hour fruit-a-palooza uses fresh, local Ola products from Hilo. You’ll start with a coconut milk foot bath, followed by a Passion Fruit Citrus Salt Scrub, a body massage with Passion Fruit Citrus body butter, a warm body wrap, scalp massage and facial treatment.
Where: Spa Pure

Fresh Papaya Facial
Details: A super-fighter against aging and sun damage, the papaya is rich in papain, an enzyme which sloughs cells from the skin's surface. Escape Day Spa uses fresh, local papayas to exfoliate your skin, leaving you with a soft, fresh glow.
Where: Escape Day Spa

Awa, Honey and Milk Wrap
Details: This detoxifying treatment uses ‘awa root powder from the Big Island, which has been used for centuries to ease away aches. It's mixed with milk and honey, which will smooth and moisturize skin. The 75-minute treatment also includes a lomi lomi massage.
Where: Spa Olakino

Fountain of Youth Facial
Details: The treatment uses all-organic masks and creams made with fresh fruit and vegetables. If you have dry skin, for example, you may get a lemon cleanser, carrot vitamin mask, or a blueberry soy massage soufflé, − a delicious mix that sounds almost like dessert. Ampy’s president Nicole Santiago-Vierra says it best: “The smell is so heavenly, it’s difficult not to lick your own face.”
