Discerning travelers who’ve selected Maui for their Hawaiian island vacation have a bevy of accommodation options to choose from. Deciding what constitutes your definition of paradise is the first step to basking in the magical wonderland that is Maui.
From upscale Kapalua to blissful Wailea to wild Hana, there are glorious Maui hotels for every type of traveler.
At the end of the famous and obscenely beautiful Road to Hana is Hana-Maui. Formerly Travaasa Hana, the idyllic paradise at the end of the road invites travelers to rest, relax and edify. Spend a day unplugging by one of the property’s two pools, via a Yoga class, head out on horseback, or book a luxurious spa service — there are no wrong answers.
The adults-only Relais & Chateau hotel is an ideal respite for the couple looking to escape family-friendly vibes. It’s easy to see why the lush property has garnered a loyal following, with perfectly appointed poolside and impeccable cocktails doing their part to melt away stress and increase endorphins by ten-fold. While not beachfront, the hotel has on-site Teslas and a genial staff to indulge guests’ snorkel and sand whims.
A welcome option in a seemingly endless string of mega-resorts, this gorgeous bed and breakfast in the heart of Maui’s West Side is secluded but not too remote that leaving the grounds feels like a chore. Still, with views like the ones on offer here, private outdoor showers, and massage therapists who’ll come to your room, there may not be much reason to venture far afield at all.
Set atop the mesmerizing Kapalua Bay, accommodations at this high-end resort include a full kitchen and units with multiple bedrooms for families. A traditional Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage provides a nice escape if you are traveling with a large crew. Dining options have recently expanded to include in-residence luaus; think poke, prawns, kulua pork plus dance and music.
From ecotourism to adventure tourism, Maui has a large selection of tourist attractions for every type of traveler.
