With the finish line of The Kauai Marathon at their backs, runners will find a welcome retreat at Grand Hyatt Kauai’s award-winning Anara Spa.

POIPU, KAUAI, HAWAII – June 20, 2013 – With the finish line of The Kauai Marathon at their backs, runners will find a welcome retreat at Grand Hyatt Kauai’s award-winning Anara Spa.  The race, held on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend each year, will take place on September 1, 2013. After taking in the lush landscape of Kauai on foot runners need only to relax and enjoy the special treatments created to address all of their needs from blisters to sore muscles. 


Maximizing Kauai’s ideal climate and natural beauty with its relaxed open-air setting, Anara Spa blends ancient healing traditions and island botanicals to refresh and renew.  For runner’s craving the ultimate in luxury the nearly two hour Runner’s Escape will enliven body, mind and soles.  A cool lavender-lemongrass soak pampers weary feet, followed by an invigorating sports massage to rebalance the body.  Lastly an aloe and Hawaiian ti leaf wrap with a cool-stone rub revives feet and legs leaving the body revitalized.  The Runner’s Refresh is a quick 25 minute rejuvenator that can be added to any body massage or facial.  Enveloping feet and calves in cool Hawaiian ti leaf and aloe as warm and cold compresses are applied stimulates blood flow and a pain-relieving cold stone rub for feet and calves wraps the treatment.  The Foot Relief provides a 25-minute whirlpool pedi-chair soak in relaxing lavender oil followed by a soothing noni gel wrap (excellent for blisters) and a gentle leg massage.
