Take a few hours for the signature Kahaia Haven Ritual treatment (around $385), which starts with the selection of a native fragrant oil, such as the skin- and joint-pain healing tamanu. Couple’s treatment? Sure. Relax in a private suite overlooking the water and enjoy a kahaia foot scrub that includes Tahitian black pearl powder, then luxuriate on a massage table with a glass floor that gives funny glimpses of curious colored fish swimming by. Finish with a cleansing facial and joint shower before taking a dip in an intimate coconut milk bath (fourseasons.com; 689-603-130).
