SpaHalekulani, the acclaimed Polynesian-inspired spa situated within the luxurious Halekulani hotel on the island of Oahu, has announced today an impressive lineup of interactive programming focused on encouraging guests to embrace healthy living through the mind, body and spirit. SpaHalekulani’s legacy of authenticity and tradition is complemented by the Master Series as well as the newest additions to the Living-Well program, both of which encompass the true “spirit of Aloha.”

SpaHalekulani’s new programming takes the guest experience far beyond the treatment room,” said Kamala Nayeli, Director of SpaHalekulani. “Our spa is centered on creating transformative experiences though various relaxation techniques that incorporate mindfulness into health and wellness practices, leading guests to everlasting positive change.”

A new ultra-luxury, small-ship venture is on the horizon. In late 2019, The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, a new luxury yachting and cruising brand, will launch with the first of three 298-passenger ultra-luxury yachts. A second yacht will set sail in the first quarter of 2021, a third in early 2022.

The Ritz-Carlton will provide luxury hospitality service under a long-term operating agreement. General reservations will open in May 2018.

The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection will have a distinctive personality and the vessels are sure to be true stand outs in some of the most glamorous ports around the world.  This unique combination of yachting and cruising will usher in a new way of luxury travel for guests seeking to discover the world in a relaxed, casually elegant and comfortable atmosphere with the highest level of personalized service.

Look for itineraries that combine the lifestyle of The Ritz-Carlton’s luxury resorts and the casual freedom of a yachting vacation. The first ship’s itineraries are expected to be seven- to 10-day voyages and mostly point-to-point.

The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection 623-foot-long vessels will be able to call at ports that larger ships can’t. The first ship, depending on the season, is expected to cruise the Mediterranean, northern Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America.

Whether the yacht is calling at Capri or Portofino in Italy, St. Barths in the Caribbean or the old town of Cartagena, the new brand says its guests will enjoy a relaxed pace that includes both overnight and day-time ports of call and a uniquely curated destination experience.
