Luxurious Maui enclave that offers best of both worlds – beach action by day, zen-like serenity by night
The property was once a private club for Japanese investors—it's that unusual history that explains the zen-like beauty of the grounds, filled with mango trees, bamboo stands, koi ponds, cascading waterfalls and timber footbridges. The 72 suites, grouped in sets of four, feature a kitchenette and separate living and sleeping quarters. Guest room bathrooms are built for a king: cue a deep, angular soaking tub set on a pedestal, next to an enormous rain shower, with the stone-tiled bathroom completely separate from vanity and toilet. Bedrooms feature natural textures and tones from polished timber floorboards through to marine-themed artwork. The Restaurant at Hotel Wailea offers romantic dining with a view from the balcony or more intimate low-walled garden. Hawaiian ingredients—think Kona lobster and Kauai shrimp—are highlighted throughout the Italian menu. The pool area features private cabanas and a full bar service, along with evening fire pits.
In the Area
It would be easy to vacation entirely within Wailea – a ritzy resort community with five crescent-shaped golden beaches and outstanding golf courses within its perfectly manicured 607 hectares. Yet Maui offers much more. Rise early to catch sunrise from the top of Mt. Haleakala, sign up for the full-day Road to Hana scenic tour, or head out from Lahaina for a day’s sport fishing. Lahaina is also home to celebrity restaurant Fleetwood’s on Front Street (Mick Fleetwood occasionally makes a cameo) while Willie Nelson frequents Charley’s Restaurant & Saloon at Paia, a former sugar-plantation town.
