Grand Wailea, A Waldorf Astoria Resort Hotel Review

: This $600-million, 780-room hotel, built on an enormous forty-acre property by Japanese businessman Takeshi Sekiguchi, is a multifaceted, pro-active resort, offering a vast array of diversions with rooms attractively decorated in earthy Hawaiian tones; preferable are the private Napua Tower rooms, which include a dedicated concierge and complimentary breakfast, afternoon tea and cocktails. The hotel has changed hands more than once since 1999, and millions have been spent over the years spiffying up what everyone simply refers to as "the Grand." In the majestic public areas you will see a spectacular, $30-million art collection, including Fernando Botero and Ferdinand Leger sculptures and paintings by Zhou Ling and Yvonne Cheng (complimentary art tours are offered if you're interested). Six restaurants and three lounges also vie for your attention. There are mosaic-tiled pools, amazing water slides, the world's only water elevator and a 20,000-square-foot Camp Grande for children. In the middle of all this is a re-creation of an old Hawaiian missionary church to handle any weddings that come along. The most dazzling attraction is the 50,000-square-foot Spa Grande, a lavish (and expensive) facility that offers massages, facials, aromatherapy, body wraps and lava hot-stone therapy. For golfers, there is a choice of four courses right in Wailea and Makena.
