We stayed in 2721 at the Ridge Villas and it was the best stay we have had in Maui yet. The location is great for the true traveler. Out of the hustle and bustle of Lahaina and Kaanapali with great views of the channel. Nothing beats watching whales play while enjoying a fresh fruit plate on the patio first thing in the morning.
We have stayed in both a standard golf villa as well and it is definitely worth the money to stay in the gold villas, although both were great. The bed was very comfortable, the furnishings were up to date, and the floor plan is very roomy. About half of our party stayed at the Kapalua Villas. we were able to experience the gold one and two bedroomsat the Golf, Ridge, and Bay Villas. I personally thought the ridge villas had the best views, while the Bay Villas had the best soundtrack. I really felt at peace sipping a vodka tonic and twist while listening to the waves crash on the rocks.
We were married at Kapalua Bay beach so we definitely enjoyed the property. The nearby beaches are some of the best on Maui...great snorkeling at Kapalua Bay and a sick shore break for those brave enough to hit up Flemming. We ate at Sansei, the Iron Imu, the Plantation House and the Honolua store...all within a short walk except for the plantation house. They were all very different but very good. The access to the Ritz facilities and spa and the associated discounts were fantastic. My wife enjoyed the Spa and had her make up and hair done at the Ritz for the wedding.
Finally, the staff. All very friendly...right from the GM Mr Osterling and the Manager Mr Hill to the grounds people and the front desk were very friendly and cheery. They checked on us upon check in to make sure everything was in order...it was. After that, we did not here from the staff until check out, not because they weren't attentive, but because everything was perfect to begin with. We will be back!
