Nestled above the lava flow, the Asaya Spa at Kona Village boasts breathtaking views of Hualalai and Mauna Kea. Inspired by the lava landscape, the spa features rich palettes and textures. Crafted Asaya Atelier counters offer unique treatments, while intricately carved millwork adds to the ambiance. A raised boardwalk connects indoor and outdoor spaces, adorned with a bronze sculpture by John Koga. Moody basalt showers and cedar saunas await in the locker rooms, complemented by relaxation gardens featuring water circuits. Starry light patterns from copper lanterns guide guests to treatment rooms, designed to align with the lava flow and offer serene views of the volcanoes. The Asaya suite pavilion provides a sanctuary inspired by Hawaiian healing traditions. The indoor-outdoor Fitness Center maximizes views and offers personalized workout programs. Sustainability is paramount, with the spa powered by solar energy and achieving LEED Gold certification.
