BOCA RATON, FL -"” September 13, 2006 "” “Enter a soothing Hawaiian oasis this January with the arrival of The Maui Spa & Wellness Center to Boca Raton. Be greeted with genuine flower leis and exotic herbal tea upon your arrival. Valued at over $3 million, this idyllic 7,000 square foot, standalone spa will become Boca Raton’s paradise escape, providing patrons with authentic, holistic wellness therapies true to the island of Maui to foster total mind-body healing and pampering from within.

“The Maui will be unique to itself and incredibly unique to Boca Raton. While many area spas tend to focus on ‘outer beauty’ treatments such as Botox or permanent makeup, The Maui will emphasize ‘inner healing and harmony within the entire body’ by relying on authentic therapies to restore the natural balance, beauty, and health,” says President Gayle Wentworth.

“This state-of-the-art spa and wellness center combines eastern and western influences, offering guests 10 private spa treatment rooms, a Hana hydrotherapy room, a Kipahulu relaxation room, a full-service salon, spa retail, and a private, Asian-influenced rooftop garden amidst a Feng Shui balanced environment,” explains Wentworth. The wellness aspect offers visitors the complete healing experience with the professional services of an Acupuncturist, Chiropractor and Psychotherapist.

The Maui’s exclusive Hana Room, named after the rainforest area of Maui, is a water-focused retreat inspired by the 7 sacred pools found on the Island. Two private copper soaking tubs, two
wet tables for exfoliating body treatments, Deluge waterfall showers and Swiss needle showers, steam and state-of-the-art infrared saunas provide deep healing and detoxification of the body and senses. A Feng Shui designed cold plunge pool is featured in the Hana Room to refresh and awaken the body post-treatment.

Rooftop at The Maui will offer an inviting, Asian-themed garden providing a private space for guests to enjoy energizing fitness classes such as sunrise/sunset Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi, and
cultural Hula. A Tea Bar will also be housed here, supplying spa guests with whole leaf signature tea elixirs, combined with a light Spa cuisine menu, to complete the ultimate escape and revive the mind, body and spirit. Rooftop at The Maui presents a unique and serene backdrop for private events, spa party bookings and corporate functions.

Wentworth further remarks, “The Maui strives to make every visit an experience and every experience a remarkable rebirth of mind and body.” She hopes her lifetime of detailed research towards the design and creation of the spa will result in guests enjoying the experience of feeling “at heart-at mind” with Maui upon their visit.

Located at 2100 NW Boca Raton Boulevard in Boca Raton, The Maui Spa & Wellness Center is the aspiration of Gayle Wentworth, a former resident of the Island of Maui. She believes the
influence of east meets western philosophy will find a balance right here in Boca Raton, Florida.
