“Best property on Maui”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

This property has it all! All suite (residences) rooms, a perfect location at Kapalua Bay, seven level heated pool, three bars, fine dining, room service, a fabulous spa and five star staff.

If you're flying all the way the Maui, this is the place to stay! The hardest part will be leaving the property to see the rest of the island.

Beautiful hotel located on Kapalua Bay, voted Best Beach in the World several times. Suites are huge, with full kitchens, washer & dryer, and spacious living, sleeping and lanai areas. Nicest room I've ever stayed in, with a view of lush grounds, lagoon pools, the ocean and two adjacent islands. Soon to be "the" undisputed best place to stay on Maui.

Highly recommend.

Amazing views and rooms. Was worth every penny. Very friendly staff, felt very welcoming. Great food and service. Many different pool choices, was very spread out and not too packed with other people. Definitely will come again.

We ate at the Cane and Canoe for our second anniversary. The atmosphere was amazing with authentic hula dancers and beautiful music. At first we were not sure of what to order and our server "Makin" originally from Alaska, recommended a wonderful three course meal and he even paired wine with each course that made it one of the best meals we have ever experienced. The view of the sunset was incredible and I can't thank the staff enough for making this one of the best nights ever for my wife and myself.

I just returned this morning from our visit to the newest Montage and I can't say enough wonderful things about the people and the property itself. Everyone was so kind and helpful and you would never know most were new hires for the opening a month ago. Helpful, friendly, happy- everything you want in a staff! The resort itself is beautiful with amazing views of the Pacific and island of Molokai. While the beach is Mauna Kea Beach Hotel (on the big island/a personal favorite) is bigger and less crowded the beach is beautiful with great snorkeling just off the shore (we swam with sea turtles). The pools are amazing for both adults and kids, and the chairs at the pool are oversized and super comfortable. There are so many things to do around the hotel- golf at the Plantation course was so wonderful, cliff jumping, hiking, water activities, tennis and so much more we didn't even have time to do! The rooms are enormous with even bigger patios and full kitchens. There is a market inside the hotel for basics and a bigger one just up the road a bit. My only complaint about the rooms is I would love to see a little more Hawaii in them- a touch here and there would do wonders. But, I really don't have a complaint about this hotel- it was amazing and bound to become the place to stay on Maui both for couples and families!

It all began before we arrived when my husband contacted Janet to book our activities and dinners. From that moment on we were in excellent hands. Janet immediately assessed our wants and desires and delivered big time. We played golf on the Plantation Course (spectacular), rode horses from the Mendes Ranch (only ranch on the island where you can run the horses), spent the 4th of July on the Hula Girl catamaran watching the fireworks on the water and went zip lining in Kapalua! Our dinner reservations were made and taxis all arranged. That was before we even set foot on the property. The other reviews say it all. The place is pristine and spectacular. I don't think the word "no" is in their vocabulary. So, without repeating the rave reviews of others, I want to speak about the special people who deserve mentioning. Along with Janet, we loved chatting with Audrey. She was always interested in our days and our dinners. My husband got up early and went to the Mahana Market for coffee. The woman always asked about our plans and was generally interested in what we would be doing. After a breathtaking walk along the coastal trail or a more vigorous one around the lake loop, our mornings started out with Christine or Kane for breakfast, with Sam making sure I had my decaf and lots of water. At the pool, Beth made sure we were hydrated and full, and Manu at the pool bar fixed us great island drinks. Speaking of bars, Mitch and Matt were the best. They were always up for good conversations, great drinks and some malasadas (not to be missed donuts) at the Cane and Canoe bar. We wanted our vacation from the east coast to be relaxing and rejuvenating. This exceeded all of our expectations. We can't wait to return.

From the moment you arrive you are captivated by the never ending view out over the multiple of relaxing pools towards the ocean. The pools are well suited to all ages, as the young can explore the nooks and caves on the lower pools whilst the more refined adults can have sanctuary in the adults only pool. The gardens are breathtaking and impeccably maintained. Service is second to none as you would expect from a Montage establishment. We were a family of 4 in a suite which was so comfortable. The easy access to nearby Kapalua Bay gave us some very enjoyable days snorkelling and paddle boarding, whilst on other days it was a quick trip to one of the many famous golf courses. One amazing feature was that our friends who stayed nearby, and visited using the valet service were know by name by the valet boys. In all....the best
