Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea
Revamped following a multi-million dollar renovation, this ultra-luxurious resort offers beachfront indulgence against the dramatic backdrop of the Haleakalā volcano. Set on sun-drenched Wailea Beach alongside a smattering of other glamorous hotels, this is an upscale haven where the rich and famous come to see and be seen.
Guests can dine on homemade pasta washed down with fine Italian wine at Wailea’s only oceanfront restaurant, the Zagat-rated Ferraro’s Bar e Ristorante; and savour Hawaiian-Californian fusion dishes at Spago, celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck’s Forbes Four Star and AAA Four Diamond eatery. For a more casual setting, the poolside Duo Steak and Seafood has been voted Maui’s best steakhouse and features a lively show kitchen. The Lobby Lounge serves handcrafted cocktails with live music, plus fresh dim sum at the weekend.
Blissful spa treatments are offered either poolside or in a traditional thatched hut beside the ocean. Guests can unwind in three saltwater pools (one adult-only with swim-up cocktails and underwater music) and enjoy daily complimentary activities such as hula dancing lessons and palm frond weaving. For shopaholics, three onsite boutiques stock designer brands like Missoni and Jimmy Choo; while sporty types can book private tennis lessons, tee-off at nearby golf courses or make a splash with endless watersports. There’s a fun-packed kids’ club for children and a games room to keep teenagers entertained, plus a range of family activities including paddle-boarding, boogie boarding and canoeing.
The resort offers a range of accommodation, from guestrooms with king-size beds and oversized marble bathrooms to lavish three-bedroom suites with private gardens, living rooms and 180-degree oceanfront views. Guests staying in a Residential Suite receive added luxury perks including a dedicated personal assistant, round-trip airport transfers, daily breakfast, a private in-suite dinner and unlimited laundry service.
