This is a fantastic hotel located in Kapalua. We recently vacationed in Maui and stayed in three different hotels (Hyatt, Marriott and Ritz). The Ritz was by far the best hotel in terms of quality, service, food, cleanliness and professionalism. It is more private and secluded than the other two as well. The service is top notch, you'll be treated... More

I stayed here for my birthday in an ocean view room. I have stayed at many other R-C properties, and this one had all the service and charm I expect. The room (2 Queens) was very large, and I liked the huge bathroom with a separate toilet/WC. There was turn-down service every evening. WiFi was good. I liked the iPod/Phone... More

This resort is an oasis. We had an ocean front room with tranquil, glorious ocean views. The furnishings and linens were lovely. There is a complimentary resort shuttle that can take you to neighboring beaches in 5 minutes that are more protected from the wind. The resort is both private and spacious which makes one feel as if you are... More

Just married in March 2014 and went to the Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua for our honeymoon. Wow, this hotel is perfect. They have top notch customer service. The grounds are beautifully kept. We had a fantastic room on the 8th floor with amazing view of the ocean, mountains and pool. We ate at only 2 of the hotel restaurants the Terrace and... More

We were really spoilt by this hotel. The service, ambiance and our room were all truly outstanding. It was a 'secret hotel' so we paid way under rack rate. It is a bit out of the way on the wettest part of the island so it may not be for everybody. Lots of nice walking options with none of the... More

We stayed at the RC Kapalua for our anniversary. Total over-indulgence for us, but it was a special occasion. The hotel is very nice, staff are super friendly and helpful. Everything you would expect for the price you pay. I would only rate the pool as above-average, certainly not spectacular by any means. Nice enough though. Our one complaint was... More

My husband and I stayed at the Ritz Kapalua in October for our honeymoon. We spent 2 luxurious weeks in Maui, and can't imagine having stayed in any other hotel. Traveling from Boston the Monday after a 4 day weekend of wedding related festivities, we were delighted to be welcomed to the hotel with refreshing juices and cuicui nut leis.... More

I was pleasantly surprised from the time we drove up. From the valet, to check-in to the welcome lady (with juice and lei in hand), it made our trip here special! Sad to leave today but will come back here for sure! Clean, friendly. Pool service could have been better but that is the only downside! Amazing views.

The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua is an outstanding resort, every bit of "R-C" elegance, style and service one would expect, but it is Hawaiian style. Wonderful ocean front property, impeccable grounds and pro golf course. This property is located just about 10 mins north of the tourist resorts of Kaanapali, which is where most families with kids and first time Maui visitors... More
