Sudha Scott and Laura Rosenthal co-owners of Wailea Massage and Body Care since 1989. Started out in the Renaissance Wailea Beach Resort, formerly Stouffer Resort and since Sept. 2007 the new Andaz Resort Maui. After they were in the Maui Inter-Continental Resort 1991-2000 (now Wailea Marriott). They have now relocated minutes away to a smaller, more boutique-like, personalized day spa where they offer outside, oceanview massage as well as facials, wraps and combos. Island wide outcalls are also offered. Being a smaller day spa size gives them a chance to give more personalized service which is a plus in this business. We are also able to offer much more economical prices–and we are a “green” facility. Solar dryer, no harsh cleaning products etc…. Recently WMBC was ranked #3 out of 83 SPA & WELLNESS on the whole island of Maui (#2 being the Grand Wailea–the biggest spa on the island–4 min away by car and double the price.) #2 our of 28 SPA & WELLNESS in Kihei (#1 is a Gym). So actually #1.
Both have been in the healing professions for over 30 years. Their professionalism combined with a passion to help people help themselves and down-to-earth friendliness sets them apart from many others. Besides, outside, oceanview massage is such a treat.
