Water is God's gift to mankind. Unique in its unparalleled healing and beautifying powers, water is the first commandment of the beauty bible. Every self-respecting fashionista knows the central importance of hydration to good looks, as she knows Couture's significance to style. No wonder the Evian bottle is the supreme fashion accessory!

Each person is composed of more than 75% water. Hence, sufficient water consumption is vitally linked to survival and well being. Failure to nourish the body with the pureness of aqua will inevitably result in health problems and premature aging. In other words, water is our number once defense against time.

Contrary to widespread misconception, ingestion is not the only way of utilizing the benefits of the miracle compound, otherwise known as H2O. It is possible to soak (literally and metaphorically) in the magic of water. Spa Grande located in the Grand Wailea Resort, Maui, Hawaii; uses the invigorating nature of hydrotherapy to rejuvenate the body and soothe the mind. Floating in aromatic baths, resting in the calming bubbles, getting massaged by cascading waterfalls or indulging in fragrant eucalyptus steam are few of the many ways of steeping in the therapeutic essence of water, Hawaiian style.

Hotel guests and visitors alike can enjoy the luxurious splendor of the Termé for as long as they like. One can opt to lavish in a day long escapade or briefly refresh before embarking on other adventures. Upon entry into this exceptional realm of cerulean bliss each individual is presented with a lush bathrobe, a pair of slippers, a personal locker and an attendant that escorts guests into the terme and does the loofah scrub.

For ultimate revitalization Fashionlines recommends that you stimulate your body with an energizing scrub of Hawaiian ingredients before taking a dip. This will exfoliate dead skin cells, unplug the pores and stimulate blood circulation. Then let every inch of your nakedness revel in the relaxing effervesce of the Roman tub. (Swimsuits are optional at Spa Grande, however be forewarned that nobody wears them.) While submerging in this delight, cover your eyes, with icy cold sliced cucumbers, readily available in crystal bowls, to reduce puffiness and dark circles. When sufficiently loosened up jump into a cold plunge pool for a refreshing jolt.

In conjunction with the Termé hydrotherapy treatments, Hawaiian specialty baths use the remedial and calming properties of water and natural ingredients to achieve pure leisure and regeneration. To attain glowing, beautiful skin, treat yourself to an idyllic Hawaiian coconut and sugar body polish. Then enjoy a moisturizing coconut milk bath, scalp massage and tropical lotion application. In order to detoxify, opt for a Maui citrus soak before delighting in a Pacific Seaweed Masque.

After your aquatic ecstasy, you may lounge around the Termé sipping on some water or eating a piece of fruit. Nonetheless the extensive range of innovative services the Spa Grand offers is sufficient incentive to explore the heavenly world of indulgence. How about a Hawaiian Pohaku (lava stone) facial or a Lomi Lomi massage?

Finally, whatever you chose to do, just remember to have fun. As Albert Einstein once opined, "The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives."

Spa Grande is located at 3850 Wailea Alanui Wailea, Maui, HI 96753.
