A closer look inwards
Within is a retreat in every sense—a destination and a mindset, whole-body health and spiritual fitness—in a setting constantly nourished by sun, light, air, water, and earth.
Our retreats are designed to let nature lead the way, taking you outside so you may better see within, integrating the science of wellness with traditional medicine and ancient healers, and setting thoughtful intentions for each day’s path.
When you travel within, you open your world—allowing the space to look deeply, see clearly, pause thoughtfully, and live mindfully long after you’re home—all with the support of expert wellness practitioners, board-certified physicians, renowned nutritionists, and numerous subspecialists.
Physical health is an integral element of overall well-being. Vitahealth at 1 Hotel Hanalei Bay offers a fully integrated Precision Wellbeing experience, harnessing a proven, human-centered, and whole-body approach. Led by a renowned team of physicians and nurses, our integrated medicine program and partnership was created to nurture wellness from the inside out.
Vitahealth will provide you with an analysis of your wellness and nutrition history, work with medical doctors to discover your body’s ideal state of performance, and help identify underlying conditions as well as solutions for disease prevention.

Sprouting Soon - These cold water immersion baths help to constrict the body’s blood vessels, aid in flushing toxins from the body, and reduce inflammation. After cold water immersion therapy, the body naturally begins to reheat itself, while blood vessels expand to promote healthy blood flow. This constriction and expansion of the blood vessels can have a lasting positive effect on blood pressure and overall circulation.
