Set on the sunny south shore of Maui island, Hawaii, against the golden curve of Wailea Beach, the Four Seasons has found the best location for sublime views and balmy weather to add to their signature blend of lavish facilities, and indulgent services.
The result is an extraordinary Hawaii hotel that miraculously combines the sophistication and serenity of an exotic hideaway, with the family fun of a relaxed beach resort.
Spreading out across the shoreline, skilfully landscaped pools and gardens intermingle with the low-level buildings of the resort, blending with an irresistible tropical backdrop. Clean, contemporary architecture and chic, modern interiors are then enhanced with splashes of local colour in the artwork and furnishings, providing a real sense of place along the way.
This connection with the local Hawaii culture continues, throughout the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea from the fresh farm-to-table produce used in each restaurant, to the exciting live Hula shows held at sunset in the Lobby Lounge.
Indeed unwinding on the beach or perhaps poolside in your private cabana may be all the entertainment you need while here, though if you are looking for more then make the most of the astounding array of watersports on offer at Four Seasons Maui, from paddle-boarding to scooter snorkelling, among many others. Whale-watching is also possible at certain times of the year, either from your sun lounger, aboard a luxury catamaran or even an outrigger canoe for those brave enough!
Cultural pursuits can then be arranged around the island including gourmet tours, photography trips and more, while children are fully catered for with a selection of fun activities that’ll see them learning of the island’s culture and history.
Then, between all of this, time at the nearby golf course or decadent seafront spa, the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea boasts expansive rooms and suites that are the largest of any resort on the island, each featuring a private outdoor space with either garden or ocean views to enjoy; this is luxury Hawaii hotel living the way it’s meant to be.
Starting in at 600sq ft, rooms at the Four Seasons Maui at Wailea are generous, to say the least. The standard rooms set the tone with space for a seating area in the bedroom, lounging chairs on their private balcony and a shower, deep-soaking tub and double vanities in the marble bathroom. Slick, modern furnishings and fittings combined with cool, natural shades create a bright, airy feeling of understated luxury here, in typical Four Seasons style. Residential Suites offer the ultimate package for family gatherings or group getaways – your very own five-star Hawaiian home. Certain room categories are also wheelchair accessible, with extra wide doors and accessible bathroom features too.
Spago is a Wolfgang Puck restaurant, so expect divine Californian cuisine matched with a touch of tropical flare. Think pork chops paired with pineapple, sweet Molokai yams and island spices, or locally caught fish such as mahi mahi encrusted with ginger macadamia nuts. Tuck in as you watch night fall across the ocean too, in this heavenly eatery.
Prepare to be entertained. This poolside show-kitchen serves up overflowing buffet breakfasts and sumptuous dinners of grilled meats and fresh seafood, with a choice of sauces. There are also vitamin-packed wellness menus for those looking for a health boost, and don’t miss event evenings such as Raw Bar Night, Burger Night and Prime Rib Night.
Dine as close as you can to the rolling waves here, at Wailea’s only beachside restaurant. Enjoy Italian inspired dishes to please everyone, from stone-baked pizzas to truffle risotto and Hawaiian snapper puttanesca. From Tuesdays to Saturdays this al fresco eatery also hums to the beat of live evening music.
Activities and Entertainment
This might be a luxury beachside Hawaii resort, but as tempting as it may be, don’t remain glued to your ocean-view cabana all day long! There is so much to do, for adults and children alike. Make the most of the warm waters off Wailea Beach with an extensive array of watersports offered by the resort’s Maui Undersea Adventures team: go paddle-boarding through the serene waters or take your balance to the next level with a paddleboard yoga class; explore the crenelated coastline by kayak; try out scooter snorkelling, the latest trend in watersports; plunge the colourful depths on a scuba diving excursion; ride the waves in surfing and windsurfing lessons; board an outrigger canoe for closer views of manta rays, sea turtles and humpback whales; sail through the seas on a luxury catamaran; or catch your own dinner on a deep-sea fishing trip! On dry land, you can then book your complimentary daily hour on either of the hotel’s two tennis courts or play a round of unforgettable golf at any of three nearby ocean-view courses, set on Maui’s spectacular volcanic slopes. Beyond all this, the hotel concierge can arrange any number of special experiences including helicopter tours, culinary adventures, photography outings around the island, stargazing and more. And for parents, the Family for All Seasons programme will see your children entertained from dawn until dusk, allowing you to experience the resort in peace and quiet!
Wailea Beach might be the major draw, but the three glittering pools around the resort are no less enticing. The main pool showcases enormous fountains surrounded by cabanas and loungers, the children’s pool features a waterslide and the adults-only Serenity Pool offers a swim-up bar, underwater music and poolside massages. Treatments are also available in traditional hale hau – thatched huts set amid lush greenery above the sea. And don’t worry if you somehow left your bikini or sunhat at home, the resort has three shops which will meet all your beach style needs.
