Upcountry Maui will be bidding Aloha to a new luxurious crystal-themed destination spa on June 1. The first of its kind to open in this part of the lush island, Lumeria Crystal Spa will feature a laid-back style of pampering combind with wellness through healing crystals.
The spa, conceived by industry doyenne Cecile Hercik and Lumeria founder and owner Xorin Balbes, will enhance Lumeria’s overall experience and mission to help people achieve personal transformation through education and adventure. The essence of the new facility will feature a kaleidoscope of ancient international therapies for the body, mind and spirit through acupuncture, Ayurveda, kinesiology, Shaman, mystic readings, psychic healing and medicine songs.
“Wellness travel continues to flourish and the trend of self-discovery through spiritual pursuits is relevant to the entire experience at Lumeria,” says Cecilia Hercik, managing partner and director of spa operations at Lumeria Crystal Spa. “Maui’s unique environment and lifestyle draws wellness seekers from around the world! Lumeria is poised to be Maui’s leader in well-being by focusing on the unique aspects of different cultures and Hawaii’s community in an authentic and respectful manner.”
“The energy of this magical place makes Lumeria Maui an ideal place for spiritual healing. The Lumeria Crystal Spa vision is to guide experiences of body, mind, heart & spirit to nurture new levels of wellness and freedom that foster healthy living. Our goal is to enlighten by creating educational opportunities for visitors and residents interested in learning about unique aspects of Maui’s ancient culture and traditional healing practices that span the globe.”
The spa, which is still being built, will measure more than 5,000 square feet spread out indoors and out. Greeting guests at the entrance is a large lushly landscaped coconut grove designed for meditation, relaxation and a spot to dine on organic cuisine or drink cold pressed juices or a glass of wine from the property’s restaurant Mūbu.
Guests are urged to arrive early to experience a musical journey in the Janta Lounge where a combination of nature sounds and tones of silicon crystal bowls puts guests on a path of harmonic healing. There are eight treatment rooms, six indoor rooms each decorated with crystals, natural wood and colorful Asian fabrics as well as two outdoor massage shalas that overlook the ocean and one couples treatment room. Other amenities include a color and aromatherapy shower, crystal energy sauna and Aroma Crystal Bar serving up blends of aromatherapy oil made in Maui.
“The word shala means ‘a pure and intimate home’ in Sanskrit, which is exactly what Lumeria strives to provide for our guests, says Hercik.
Lumeria Crystal Spa’s signature treatments include the Crystal Healing and Mystic Reading, The Seed Crystal Massage and The Crystal Body Treatment.
