Sponsored Edition: Out of Office Experience

Your cubicle? Assigned. Job title? Set in stone. Salary? Non-negotiable.

Daily grind got you feeling walled in? You need to get out, before you freak out. So grab your best girlfriend and book the “You Deserve It” all-day pamper package for two at The Fairmont Orchid’s Spa Without Walls on the Big Island.

Lei Chic At this amazing open-air spa, it’s all about keeping your options open, starting with exactly what you "knead": two 50-minute sessions of massage in an airy (but surprisingly private) oceanfront cabana.

Choose from lomi lomi, sports or a Swedish technique. Two sessions are part of the package, so you can treat a friend or just get the knots out of both shoulders.

Then, enjoy the complimentary lunch for two at the beachside Hale Kai restaurant. You’ll dine al fresco, overlooking the resort’s famous sea turtle lagoon.

Open your tastebuds with dishes like grilled fresh catch of the day with a side of tropical fruit salsa and sautéed bok choy. Or bite into a juicy Da Kine sirloin burger loaded with smoked bacon, cheddar and sundried tomato aioli. Calories don’t count on neighbor islands, after all.

Go back for massage, part deux, or just relax poolside or oceanside on your complimentary cabana deck chair. The comfy cushions and sun shade make it a perfect place for that afternoon nap. And make sure to take advantage of the spa steam room and sauna, both of them at your
disposal for the day.


With all your stress worked out, you'll be ready to head back to that inside job.
And feel outstanding.
