Job Description:

Company Overview

Hawaiian Experience Spa has pioneered the living wage principle for therapists with the highest pay Arizona, not dependent on tips! We believe massage therapists are professional health care providers similar to nurses or physical therapists. Unlike most spas, we do not consider our therapists hospitality or personal care providers like servers, hair stylists, nail techs, etc. Consistent with this philosophy we pay our therapists a good living wage, based on their training, experience and expertise. We do not make therapists depend on tips for a decent living.

 We are the number one rated day spa in the Phoenix, AZ area because we commit to our ‘ohana (employees) and our ‘ohana commits to helping fulfill our Spirit of Aloha Commitment. The commitment not only involves us all helping the guests, it equally involves us helping each other. The Hawaiian Experience Spa concept was brought to Arizona in 2007 by our founders after they studied massage in Hawaii. We have since expanded and currently have a spa in Scottsdale, Chandler and Goodyear with more opening soon!


Our Spirit of Aloha Commitment

To provide an exceptional relaxation or therapeutic spa experience to every guest every time. 

To provide an exceptional, rewarding and enjoyable work experience to our 'ohana (employees) by treating them like partners, not commodities. 

To spread the Spirit of Aloha so more people, both guests and 'ohana, can benefit from the Hawaiian Experience.
