Wailea Beach Resort - Marriott, Maui

A contemporary oceanfront retreat in Wailea

Inspired by both the power and tranquility of the ocean, Wailea Beach Resort - Marriott, Maui gives you a front-row seat to admire the surrounding aquamarine water as well as breathtaking Hawaiian sunsets — with proper mai tais, of course.

Situated between two isolated sandy beaches along Maui’s southern sunny coastline, this modern playground is just steps from sprawling golfing greens and superb shopping. Meanwhile, an abundance of engaging delights and interactive spaces abound on the property’s 22 acres.

Exceptional outdoor pools and 547 redesigned rooms and suites complete a $100 million renovation from 2016. The family-friendly hotel also lures you in with three 18-hole championship-level golf courses, a nearly 10,000-square-foot spa, a luau and fun dining options ranging from a food truck doling out poke bowls and shave ice to fine dining from one of Hawaii’s foremost chefs.

In addition, the region frequently sees rainbows, whales and sea turtles, making Wailea Beach Resort the place for a romantic getaway or an adventure-filled tropical escape.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The moment you enter the Maui hotel, you are greeted by a warm smile and a joyful Hawaiian welcome (orchid lei included), before being awestruck by panoramic views of the vibrant blue Pacific, gentle trade winds and pure hospitality that is the aloha spirit.
  • Wailea Beach Resort offers five sparkling outdoor oceanfront pools complete with four exhilarating waterslides. The 325-foot chute at the two-acre Nalu Adventure Pool is the longest in Maui.
  • Nestled between Ulua Beach and Wailea Beach, the resort places you moments from the crystal-clear waters and soft sands of the Pacific. Arrange to rent a stand-up paddle board or spend the day snorkeling or diving among native fish.
  • One of the pioneers of Hawaiian regional cuisine, legendary chef Roy Yamaguchi has crafted his Humble Market Kitchin as a must-visit for locally inspired breakfast and dinner. Start your day with the gluten-free coconut macnut (macadamia nut) pancakes or an island classic, loco moco (this upgraded version includes roasted pork, fried rice, mushrooms and sunnyside-up eggs all doused in jus).
  • Authentic Polynesian entertainment can be found oceanfront during the Te Au Moana luau held exclusively at the Wailea hotel. With the Pacific as a backdrop, you’ll dig into classic Hawaiian cuisine as traditionally clad performers put on a riveting live show at sunset.

Things to Know

  • Those seeking a reprieve from family living can find solace at the adults-only Maluhia Serenity Pool, which offers overwater cabanas and complimentary chilled refreshments twice daily.
  • Reserve a cabana in advance to secure your oceanfront spot next to the pool— the best way to soak up the sun under the blue skies of Wailea.
  • Don’t fret if your room isn’t ready at check-in: there’s an arrival and departure lounge where you can retreat to after the long flight and shower.
  • While the Maui resort offers easy access to Ulua Beach and Wailea Beach, the property does not sit directly on the sands. But sparkling sea-view pools and oceanfront accommodations offer plenty of fun in the sun.

The Rooms

  • Rooms are spacious and minimalist by design while elegantly offering the comforts of home. When you arrive, hang your lei on the uniquely crafted wooden hanger before cooling off with the provided moist chilled towelette and refreshing fruit nectar.
  • Breathtaking balconies or lanais await you in every room. Sit and listen to singing birds or the melodic rumble of the waves crashing along the shore’s lava rocks.
  • While most accommodations offer sea vistas, a limited number of Premium Ocean View rooms offer extended decks and easy access to one of the sparkling pools— one of our top picks for a romantic sojourn.
  • Signature suites boast extra-large balconies with the option to connect an adjoining room for added space and even more jaw-dropping panoramas of the supremely inviting ocean.

For the Kids

  • Look out for fun and whimsical touches around the luxury hotel, like life-size chess, sand art, giant Connect Four and cornhole.
  • If it rains during your visit to paradise, just visit Gamespace, where you’ll find an array of board games, foosball and pool tables, arcade games and more to keep kids and teens entertained for hours.
  • Strum the handmade Kala ukuleles found in your room. Instruments are also available in the lobby for you to strum, play and enjoy during your stay.
  • Discover a lost civilization and adventure into virtual reality within the hotel’s state-of-the-art Submerged Maui, the only escape room at a Hawaii resort.
