About Ola Tropical Apothecary & Spa

Atsuko Koi, Owner

Atsuko Koi | Ola Tropical Apothecary & Spa

Atsuko, originally from Tokyo, Japan, moved to Big Island in 2015 with a determined passion to learn hula, traditional Hawaiian dance.


In 2019, she graduated Hawaii Community College in Hilo, where she majored Hawaiian Studies. There, she was inspired by the healing power of lāʻau lapaʻau (Hawaiian herbal medicine).


In the following year, she met Robin Williams, the owner of Ola Tropical Apothecary which provides tropical plant-based body and skin care products, all made in Hilo. Together they created Ola Tropical Apothecary & Spa, the first flagship shop of Ola and a spa that offers its signature massage and facial treatments.


Ola Tropical Apothecary & Spa opened in the heart of downtown Hilo in May 2021. Please come visit our boutique and spa and experience the hand-crafted body and skin care products centered on the Hawaiian concept of beauty and wellness, and our luxurious treatments filled with the life force of Hawaiʻi.

Introducing Our Team

(In Alphabetical Order)

Atsuko | Ola Tropical Apothecary & Spa

Owner, Licensed Massage Therapist


Book a lomilomi massage with Atsuko! Lomilomi, or Hawaiian massage, is beneficial for restoring balance and alignment of the body while increasing the spiritual energy and personal power (mana). It reflects our connection with the land (‘āina), the spirit guides or ancestors (‘aumakua) and the breath of life (aloha). Lomilomi includes range-of-motion work and deep-tissue techniques, and most importantly, the full presence of loving touch.
