Knows as the Valley Isle, the island of Maui has a reputation for being the most picture-perfect Hawaiian island. Within minutes of our arrival, it was very clear why. Crystal clear beaches are a haven for swimmers, snorkelers, surfers and relaxation-seekers alike. One of the most stunning stretches is in popular Wailea, where visitors can have their pick of stunning properties. Nestled between two beautiful Wailea beaches and other luxury resorts that share its stunning coastline, the Wailea Beach Resort is a standout.
With three distinct pools – an adults-only infinity pool, a second infinity pool open to all guests, and a fun family pool that features the longest resort waterslide in Hawaii – there is space for everyone from honeymooners to young families to enjoy the Hawaiian experience that best suits them.
Each of the Wailea Beach Resort’s rooms features a lanai (balcony): if you’re staying on upper floors, you can enjoy open views into the ocean while those on the ground floor have the special perk of an indoor/outdoor experience that almost feels like the resort is your own private backyard. Whatever your preference, it always feels like an exclusive property that uses the benefit of its sprawling nature to give you the privacy that is so special when on holiday. That is, until the sun begins to set, where guests gather along the resort’s coast to watch the stunning show the sky puts on – and who can blame them.
Maui is full of adventure (and the on-site Starbucks is there to help fuel your day!) but you’ve come a long way and deserve to be pampered. Make the most of your stay by reserving one of the spacious, shaded, full-service poolside cabanas at the Maluhia Serenity Pool. Enjoy unobstructed views of the infinity pool by your feet, the ocean beyond it, and epic Mount Haleakala straight ahead. Doze off in comfort, enjoy a dip with your Mai Tai in hand, enjoy the complimentary fruit platter and to-die-for banana bread, and be one with paradise.
While a full menu from delicious KAPA Bar & Grill is available at the pools, make sure to also find the time to enjoy dining in the indoor/outdoor poolside restaurant for freshly grilled meat, seafood and vegetables, fresh poke, delicious cocktails and so much more. Staff are incredibly friendly, service is quick for those who’ve worked up an appetite, and the ingredients are as local as they come.
Whatever your reason for visiting Maui, it is a very special experience to spend a few nights at one of its finest properties. From the warmest welcome with a stunning Lei, to the breathtaking views at every single turn, the Wailea Beach Resort seamlessly makes your Hawaiian dreams a reality.
