Hotel Wailea Maui Hotel Review

: This soothing hideaway opened in 1990 and has remained one of Wailea's best-kept secrets --- probably because it's not on the beach. Perched 300 feet above the Wailea coastline, almost all of the suites have jaw-dropping views of Kahoolawe and Molokini. You can even see into Molokini’s tiny, crescent-shaped islet from this height. A hypnotic waterfall, complete with koi ponds, spills downward from the entryway through tropical foliage, underneath a restaurant and around exquisite Japanese gardens. The lobby area and entrance are enormous rotundas roofed with Chinese slate and supported by impressive coral pillars. Hotel staff project a warm and friendly vibe that echoes throughout the hotel. Many of the guests are Japanese, as the hotel is owned by a Japanese corporation. There are only 72 luxury one-bedroom suites on nearly fifteen acres. Suites are incredibly spacious, clean and comfortable and open onto wide lanais. All have mini-kitchens, coffee makers and LCD TVs. For dining, Capische? restaurant serves up fine Italian cuisine infused with fresh island seafood and produce. Guests have unlimited use of the Japanese spa, a magnificent amenity featuring waterfall massage showers, an extra-large Jacuzzi and a Finnish-style sauna. Men and women have separate spa facilities.
