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 slides, an exhilarating whitewater rapids slide and the world's first 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.
