Hotel Wailea

Adults-only serenity in Maui

Nestled within one of Maui’s most exclusive enclaves, Hotel Wailea is an intimate, tranquil escape complete with the cliffside views of your Instagram dreams.

Home to 72 suites spread across 15 acres of ocean-facing property, this peaceful retreat provides mesmerizing vistas and a calming atmosphere in one of the most popular areas on the island. With waterfalls, winding pathways and tropical plants to welcome you into the resort, you will feel as if you were transported to your own private sanctuary.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Thanks to a seamless blend of indoor/outdoor living and endless walls of windows, Hotel Wailea plays up its best asset from every angle. Fantastic views and pristine weather nearly year-round are reason enough stay in this adults-only resort.
  • When you need a break from the Maui sun, check out one of the property’s complimentary experiences, including yoga, aerial silks and group fitness classes; Hawaiian outrigger canoeing excursions; and tropical mixology classes.
  • While the Maui hotel may not be directly on the waterfront, a private stretch of sand at nearby Wailea Beach and beach valet services make soaking up the Hawaiian sun a cinch. The Restaurant at Hotel Wailea prepares picnic baskets daily for purchase to enjoy on the sands.
  • The resort offers several exclusive couple’s experiences, including a Flavors of Hawai’i cooking class, a ride in a 1957 Porsche 356 Speedster reproduction and an in-suite Couples’ Paradise Retreat (a side-by-side lomi lomi massage and coconut milk bath).
  • Surrounded by lush tropical foliage and dotted with chic living-room-style cabanas, the pool area at Hotel Wailea beckons for some afternoon relaxation. Fire pits, a hot tub and a poolside bar help you transition from daytime fun in the sun to evening stargazing.
