Ancient Rituals, Modern Pampering at Embassy Suites

Embassy Suites-Waikiki Beach Walk is honoring tradition with Hiuwai Lomilomi

Hawaii's people have long regarded the beaches and waters of Waikiki as spiritually healing. Now, Embassy Suites-Waikiki Beach Walk is honoring that tradition with Hiuwai Lomilomi, a holistic healing massage that involves a purifying ritual. Offered in the privacy of the guest suite, the treatment begins with bathing the hands and feet in a bowl filled with water and Hawaiian sea salt to "wash away worries and balance the soul." Next, a one-hour full-body Hawaiian lomilomi massage helps to rid the body of negative energy. At the end of the sessions, practitioners show clients how to return the ceremonial waters back to the ocean. Embassy Suites' Hiuwai Lomilomi package, which comes with accommodations, starts at $319 per night through Dec. 22.
