Wailea, Maui
Grand Wailea, A Waldorf Astoria Resort

Looking like something straight out of a tropical fantasy, the Grand Wailea Resort boasts one of the best pools on Maui. A water park in its own right, the Wailea Canyon Activity Pool features four interconnected water slides, an exhilarating whitewater rapids slide and the world's first-ever water elevator. It's also home to The Fishpipe, a 90-second rotating barrel ride that reaches a top speed of 11 feet per second, making the attraction equivalent to a mile-long water slide.
