Four Seasons Resort Hualalai Introduces Custom Makana Honua Line

Published on : Saturday, December 22, 2018

Four Seasons Resort Hualalai announce a new line of custom bath and spa products available throughout the Resort. With the dedication to an authentic Hawaiian experience as the foundation, Makana Honua was created. In Hawaiian language, makana honua means “gifts of the earth,” a fitting name for a line of products derived from the Hualalai ahapua’a . Makana Honua is available in-room for all personal care products, in the Spa, and is being translated into massage oils that will launch in January 2019.


The Makana Honua Collection was created by Four Seasons Resort Hualalai in collaboration with LATHER, a holistic skin care retailer. Hawaiian heritage and the unique destination of Hualalai was considered as the line was developed. The inspiration for Makana Honua stemmed from Hualalai Spa’s local apothecary, which allows guests to create custom scrubs, soaks and body butters using ingredients found throughout Hawaii Island.


Ingredients from the mountain to the ocean were selected and combined to create a harmonious, natural product. It was important to the Resort to source ingredients from local farms and vendors, keeping the product authentic and supporting the community of Hawaii Island. The three key components in Makana Honua include:


Organic lehua blossom honey: An indigenous plant to Hawaii Island, the lehua blossom is synonymous with the island as it was one of the first plants to grow from lava rock. The blossom was made into a honey, which is a natural humectant that draws moisture in to the skin and hair.


Ground Kona coffee: Kona coffee culture is deeply rooted throughout the Resort. Among its many natural benefits, Kona coffee provides antioxidant and exfoliating qualities.
Hawaiian deep sea salt: Hawaiian sea salt has been a staple of life for ancient Hawaiians at Ka’upulehu, the land division where Hualalai is located, for hundreds of years. Sea salt also possesses a variety of minerals that help to clarify and draw toxins from the body.
In addition, other Hawaiian extracts and oils were used in Makana Honua including macadamia nut oil, coconut oil, awapuhi oil, pineapple extract, aloe leaf extract, chamomile extract and marigold extract. Each of these ingredients lend a unique scent and provide natural benefits to the skin and hair.


“We are thrilled to introduce Makana Honua to our guests,” says Melissa Galindo, Director of Rooms at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai. “We custom created this product drawing inspiration from Hualalai and our unique destination. We hope this small but important touch will further extend our authentic aloha and ho’okipa to our guests.”
