Maui, Hawaii

The hotel

A little off the main tourist route, peace and quiet is the order of the day at the Hotel Wailea. A boutique resort, inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, the staff are warm and welcoming and suites clean and spacious. They even boast a mini-kitchen should self-catering appeal. If not, the resort’s intimate hillside restaurant - Capische? - serves amongst the best Italian fare in Hawaii, allowing you to dine alfresco under a starlit sky. Each Friday there is a Manager’s reception, the ideal place to get to know fellow guests, chatting over a signature Hotel Wailea cocktail. You can also relax at the hydro therapy spa, complete with whirlpool, dry sauna and reclining baths – just the thing after a busy day’s sightseeing! A regular shuttle services runs to a glorious stretch of golden beach as well as shops, golf courses and restaurants or you can explore by hire car. There is plenty to see in the local vicinity, including state parks for hiking and biking amidst truly breathtaking scenery. Alternatively, grab a book, a cocktail and that all-important sun cream and chill by the pool.

I agree with other reviewers that Hotel Wailea is really good but just misses the mark as a Relais et Chateau. I think it comes down to the staff. Most were excellent and committed. But there were exceptions. Perhaps as a seasoned traveler and an ‘almost’ senior citizen I can expect more from a 5 star.

Excellent service, great food, environment is one of a kind. The Treehouse Dinner was memorable, one on one with an excellent chef, beautiful views, very very special. We took advantage of many of their amenities and they were well done. I loved the valet service and the drives they provided - - really helpful.

Hotel Wailea is an exceptional hotel that provides top tier adult only service. The property is very clean, neat, and well organized. The hotel grounds are immaculate and feature a beautifully designed man-made stream, waterfalls and ponds with a small walking trail. The pool is a quiet and mature place to relax with excellent drinks and bar service. Although this hotel is not directly on the beach, the shuttle service via jeep or Tesla is very efficient and a short friendly 5 min. drive. Read less

The grounds and property layout at Hotel Wailea were great. Being inland from the ocean but having access to the beach was convenient and a nice amenity. The casitas were lovely for cooking in or having a bit more space to spread out than a typical hotel. While the reviews are what drew us to selecting this hotel I cannot say that I would return… Read more
The grounds and property layout at Hotel Wailea were great. Being inland from the ocean but having access to the beach was convenient and a nice amenity. The casitas were lovely for cooking in or having a bit more space to spread out than a typical hotel. While the reviews are what drew us to selecting this hotel I cannot say that I would return or that I would not return. The very basic touch points of service and hospitality were unable to be met by what appeared to be a constant shortage of staff working bell and valet. The staff was very friendly and accommodating but there was simply not enough people to serve the guests. Read less

Can’t be beat for service and relaxing atmosphere! Staff are very friendly. Valet service to and from the Wailea area is a big plus! Golf cart service to and from our room was also very helpful. Very secure and quiet property.
