During My Ohana Luau?s interactive dinner show, dancers call patrons of all ages onstage to learn Polynesian dance moves and befriend hula girls, creating a song-and-dance spectacle flanked by an authentic island-style buffet. Before the show, visitors dine on a buffet of delicacies such as pineapple chicken and pulled pork with sweet-and-sour sauce, prepared fresh daily by a Samoan chef. A flaming fire knife dance serves as the performance's triumphant conclusion, wherein performers hailing from diverse Polynesian regions gambol in elaborate headdresses and traditional island garb. Parties celebrating birthdays and anniversaries relay their excitement to the house emcee, who announces landmark occasions to the crowd.
The eatery?s full bar further enlivens shows with cocktails such as the Flaming Volcano for two, a mixture of three types of rum with orange and pineapple juice that burns brighter than a bonfire fueled by SAT-prep books. For less formal fare, the onsite caf? serves simple omelet breakfasts, and the pool-deck menu centers on sandwiches.
The professional nail technicians at Artizon Hair Studios decorate digits with an array of manicure and pedicure services. After patrons remove jewelry and scuba flippers, a professional nail technician lengthens lifelines with a full hand massage. Feet and hands steep in a relaxing soak before a foot exfoliation smoothes away the top layer of dead skin. To finalize the digit makeover, cuticles are shaped and buffed to a high shine in preparation for an application of polish in the patron's choice of color.
Alternatively, a French luxury mani-pedi supplements all the amenities of the express mani-pedi with a slew of additional cuticle-coddling treatments. A foot massage places hot stones between the toes, invigorating the senses without the unpleasant burns associated with vacationing in a volcano. A longer hand and foot soak in special, premium oil cultivates healthier skin, and an exfoliation treatment scrubs away dead cells. To complete the roughly 80-minute treatment, a French polish caps nails with a longer-lasting layer of color.

A trip to the islands is the most relaxing getaway. The staff at Java Hair Company strive to recreate that state of relaxation with a tropical atmosphere and a roster of beautifying services. Expert hair stylists snip clients' hair into face-flattering shapes, adding color and highlights to add dimension without using hairspray to sculpt it into a cube. Facials restore moisture to tired skin, and massages release tension and aches. The gel polish used in manicures resists chips for up to two weeks, and feet get scrubbed and lotioned up during pedicures.
At the practice he started in 1979, Daytona native Doctor of Chiropractic Amara wields three decades of experience to perform chiropractic, skincare, and body-contouring services. He restores façades and bodies with skills that have earned him recognition by the Daytona Beach News-Journal, which the chiropractor once realigned into straight-spined paper cranes. Facials are administered with Pevonia products, which are natural, cruelty-free elixirs packaged in recyclable, biodegradable containers.
Martini’s Chophouse fills human-fuel tanks with its organic New American fare and dazzles jaded diners with its oft-changing seasonal menu. The current line-up includes succulent starters such as the wasabi-laced tuna nachos ($12), which reclaim fish and chips from defeated red-coated foodies. Main courses are composed of natural, organic fare, making the veggie-flanked chicken skewers ($15) and the spinach and garlic ravioli ($13) free of cuisine-ruining chemicals and preservatives. Meat seekers can set carnivorous sights on the Harris Ranch filet mignon, an organic beef slab accompanied by a meal-harmonizing trio of Amish blue cheese, tempura onion rings, and mashed potatoes ($29).
