At Maui’s Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua, Health and Wellness Take Center Stage

September 25 through 27, one of Maui’s premier resorts, the Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua, will host the third annual Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua, E Malama Kou Kino (Hawaiian for “care for your body”) wellness retreat. Over the course of the three-day event, a host of highly qualified health and wellness experts will guide attendees through a range of holistic activities—from a beach boot camp to guided sunrise hikes—designed to attain equilibrium of mind, body, and spirit.

Friday’s agenda includes a fitness walk, a chef-guided tour of the on-site gardens, lectures about the importance of balance and sleep, and an exploration of medicinal potions culled from native plants and trees. The Saturday lineup allows guests to attend fitness and yoga classes, snorkel, or go on a guided coastal walk that highlights some of Maui’s most beautiful beaches. Sunday’s schedule includes a sunrise hike, a Hawaiian martial arts class, and a lecture about brain optimization.

Guests can take advantage of the activities by booking the resort’s Ultimate Wellness Experience package ($469 per night), which includes a $200 spa credit, a $50 café credit, a sunrise hike for two, and complimentary fitness seminars. (A minimum two-night stay is required to receive the credits.) (ritzcarlton.com)
