The Kohala Sports Club & Spa at Hilton Waikoloa Village on the Big Island has introduced a new menu of treatments, created especially to cater to its youngest guests. The new spa program invites keiki (children) and teens ages 6-15 to enjoy therapeutic and fun treatments that will help enrich their vacation experience, just as a spa experience does for adults.

These new specialty treatments include the Ti-Leaf Cooling Wrap, recommended for immediate sunburn relief for those who stayed at play a bit too long in the water or sand. Cooling aloe and soothing lavender are applied directly to the skin to begin the healing process. The ti-leaf plant, known for its ability to draw excess heat out of the skin, is then used to cover areas affected by the residual redness.

After a full day of fun and activities, kids can also have sore or strained muscles, and specialty massages offer the relief that will help put youngsters back into top form. The Surfer Back, Neck and Shoulder Massage helps with the spots most affected by a hard day at play, while an Island Aromatherapy Massage will soothe and calm the mind and senses to help kids relax and rest up for the rest of their vacation.

The Youth Glow Facial teaches children the essentials of good skin care, and a Youthful Make-Up Design session teaches teens how to apply make-up and sculpt brows for a naturally beautiful and youthful look. Manicures and pedicures are also available to round out a session of pampering.

“The interest in kids and teen spa programs has really grown in recent years,” said Lora Gallagher, regional director of marketing, Hilton Hawaii. “Not only do mom and dad need a relaxing rejuvenation while they are in Hawaii, but the kids want to be a part of that experience as well,” she continued.

Services offered purely for a dose of fun include Henna Body Art, Hair Design that incorporates beading, braids and French braiding, as well as a seasonal selection of fitness classes just for kids.

Kids under age 16 are welcome to receive spa treatments, with the exclusion of use of the steam room, sauna and whirlpool. These younger guests are also required to wear a bathing suit at all times during their visit. Parents of the participating keiki or teen will be required to sign a waiver before the treatment.
