The Ultimate Oahu Getaway
A few weekends ago, I had the great fortune of visiting the luxurious Sullivan Estate and Spa Retreat, arguably THE premiere spa getaway on the island of Oahu loved by celebs and spa aficionados alike. I have to admit that by the time I got to the estate, I had driven through most of Oahu and was already fairly relaxed. However, after taking a tour of the tranquil grounds, I found myself completely zen just by being surrounded with such beauty.

The view from the yoga room. On clear days, you can see the whales frolicking in the ocean!
I was welcomed warmly by the founders of the spa, Karin and Dr. Jurgen Klein, the founder of Jurlique. They not only treated us with the most delicious vegan meal I’ve ever had, but also gave us an exclusive tour of their world renowned spa.

A delicious lunch!
The spa offers so much more than the usual spa treatments like massages and facials. Dr. Klein believes in a holistic approach to well being, therefore the spa offers everything from a work out room, to yoga studio, to Ayurveda treatments, and more. Of course, there’s also the JK7 spa, one of just three in the world! This one of a kind spa experience involves floating in a pool equivalent in salinity to the Dead Sea while experience just one input per sense–you see one color, smell one scent, hear one track of music, etc. This “help(s) you transform your body, mind and spirit by emptying them of the garbage that accumulates in your memories and sensory system and replacing it with a revived and rejuvenated body, mind and spirit that fosters balanced thoughts and feelings.” Indeed!
The Kleins converted what were garages into individual treatment rooms for their spa treatments. Brilliant!
The one of a kind JK7 spa. The experience is 45 minutes of pure bliss and relaxation.
There is so much more to write about (including the amazing all natural JK7 products I’ve now been using and loving), but I think the point is that the Sullivan Estate is worth the drive and the one of a kind spa experience.
Dr. Klein doesn’t compromise on the quality of his ingredients. Instead of chemical scents, he uses only all natural oils and substances in his all natural, high performance JK7 line. You may think it’s pricey at first, but it’s for a good reason! After all, why not invest in your skin and yourself?
