What: The city's best new day spa at the chic Ian Schrager meets Marriott Edition hotel. In addition to four treatment rooms, there's a mani-pedi bar for relaxing foot rubs post-surfing on Waikiki.
The look: Despite its relatively small dimensions, the light space stays airy and serene, with white walls, cool stone floors, and sheer curtains.
Who goes: New Yorkers and Angelenos after a stylish spa alternative to the standard lei-filled kitsch.
The treatment: The one- to two-hour Muscle Melt Down focuses on relaxing tight muscles and promoting range of motion, the perfect shoulder primer for paddling.
P.S.: If you need a full leg wax, ask for Heather, one of the best technicians in town.
