If you haven’t been to Maui, Hawaii, then I strongly suggest you add this wonderful paradise to your list. Maui, in my opinion, is one of the best Hawaiian islands because it’s not as crazy as Honolulu but still has enough night life to keep you entertained.
At the top of my list for accommodations is the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea. As with all Four Seasons properties, the extraordinary service is what creates the ultimate experience and guarantees that your stay will be an absolute pleasure.
Wailea is a beautiful and upscale location on the island and many of the high-end hotels are located here. It is approximately a 30 minute drive to the Lahaina/Ka’anapali area which boasts the majority of hotels, shops and restaurants on the island.
The rooms at this resort are classic in decor, very roomy and offer the latest technology for all your gadgets. The large, marble bathrooms invite you to linger and relax.
The resort is designed to be open and airy with a wonderful tropical feel. A must is to have a sunset drink at the lobby bar while munching on their delicious (and addictive) house made fruit and nut mix. There are three on-property restaurants for your dining pleasure, Spago, Ferraro’s Bar E Ristorante, and Duo Steak and Seafood.
The beach in front of the property is shared with the Grand Wailea Resort. Be sure to snorkel here as it is common to see large Sea Turtles swimming around along with many other sea life. The Four Seasons will set up chairs and an umbrella for you on the beach, but if you prefer to stay by the pool, there is no charge for the cabanas ~ they are first come, first serve. An unusual perk as most hotels charge for this option.
Not that there is any reason to leave this resort with the great snorkeling right outside the door, 3 pools, a spa and gym, golf, tennis, onsite scheduled activities and other amenities; but if you are looking for some fun day excursions you may want to consider the drive to Hana (read up on this first ~ this is an all day adventure) and grab lunch or dinner at Mama’s Fish House along the way, diving, zip lining, or maybe a catamaran ride over the the island of Lana’i on the Trilogy. If you do the latter, be sure to visit the (2) Four Seasons hotels located on Lana’i ~ Four Seasons Manele Bay and Four Seasons Koele . If you want to check out the best luau on the island, make reservations (a must) at the Old Lahaina Luau.
One side note, while staying at the Four Seasons, I do recommend walking next door and checking out the Spa at the Grand Wailea. It was named one of the top 10 spas in the United States by Conde Nast and its exclusive Terme Hydrotherapy Water Circuit is not to be missed.
All in all, Maui is a fail-safe vacation that will leave you wanting more. For more images of the Four Seasons Resort Maui, see the video created by the Four Seasons.
