It’s best to skip a formal itinerary at this luxurious Polynesian playground, a collection of 50 tropical one- to four-bedroom condos (originally imagined as a timeshare) on Maui’s best beach, whose pair of lava rock outcrops protect it from the strong winds that often whip at the island’s other seafronts. The tranquil coves here are made for snorkeling—and partly why this resort teems with families. The kid-friendly spirit also surfaces in other perks like Paintbox (an aquatic adventure-based menu for 5-12 year olds) and M-Teens, aimed at older children, while a Montage Merits program invites pint-size guests to complete a range of island activities, from spotting whales to hula dancing. For parents, there are lomi lomi massages and soothing seaweed cocoons at the acclaimed onsite spa, and daytime piña coladas by the pool. Regroup as a family at the Old Lahaina Luau, a lavish traditional barbecue, which the concierge can help secure seats to. Or, simply order a pork-and-grilled pineapple pizza (a kids menu is also available) from the comfort of your roomy, couch-laden suite as you recover from a sun-and-surf soaked day.
In the Area
The resort’s appeal lies in its remoteness: you’re a 65-minute ride from Maui’s Kahului airport. From a clutch of complimentary guided hikes, which explore nearby trails rich with guava trees and monarch butterflies, to private stand-up paddle-boarding tutorials at Kapalua Beach, guests can indulge in a variety of bayside adventures. Further afield, other essential island excursions include the infamously curvy Road to Hana, a swim with the turtles at Ka’anapali Beach, and a day at Iao Valley State Park, a 4,000-acre expanse with awe-inspiring rock formations like the Iao Needle, a 1,200-foot geological marvel blanketed by tropical foliage.
How to Get There
We had a fantastic stay at the Montage Kapalua, the service was exceptional! We stayed in a three bedroom condominium, it was Great! The property is very well manicured and everyone working there was friendly and very attentive. The food in the restaurants was very good. We give 5 stars to the property and staff, a must stay on Maui!
Montage is a condominium home ownership that rents units for vacationers when owners are not using their home. But, unlike other private rental properties it operates like a 5 star resort. The 1 bedroom units offer large separate bedrooms, full size kitchens, 1.5 baths and an oversized lanai to view the property or ocean. They also have 2 and 3 bedroom units for taking the family or sharing with another couple. Multiple restaurants, fun bar and lots of space on the property to explore. Yes, it is more expensive than a typical hotel. However, we found the Montage to be on par with service of a Four Seasons, for about the same price, but bigger rooms! If you want an elite experience with a beautiful property, don't hesitate to book a stay at this resort!
Thus is a 5 star property with 5 star service. From the moment you arrive the service is outstanding ! The rooms are gorgeous, and have everything you could ever need. The pool area is beautiful. The pool staff is wonderful. There is no stressing about finding a lounge, they do everything for you. Amazing snorkeling at the beach area. Nice touch sending us home with swag gift. Just a wonderful stay.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Montage. We had a 3 bedroom condo and loved it! It was perfect for 6 of us. I thought it was well stocked and very comfortable. The pool area was fun and we enjoyed the cliff jumping as well. It was fun to explore the rock area to look for fish and other critters. The swimming area in the ocean is also nice and protected and has quite a bit of sea life. I would definitely recommend this property. Ours was the best location!!! We were on the first floor and had a perfect ocean view.
The Montage at Kapalua Bay is the closest thing to perfect that we’ve experienced on a vacation. The bedrooms, apartment and outdoor patio were luxurious. Camila the concierge helped us in every aspect of our vacation and it was great!
