We spent most of 2020 rescheduling our annual Maui visits, but jumped on a plane mid November, about a month after Hawaii launched the pre-travel testing option to avoid quarantine. We are based in Austin, Texas and unfortunately, many of the state approved testing options were simply not available, nor would comply with the 72 hour requirement. So, we opted for an at-home lab test 'Let's get checked' and we had our results within 24 hours. I'm not sure if that is standard or if we were just lucky, but the turnaround was impressive. Many of you might be asking, is the process and testing worth the trouble? I can only share our experience, but in short, yes. Once you have the process in action and test results pending, or in hand, it's really quite easy. (I will caution you, HI approved testing partners are required, and they take this very seriously. You will find yourself in quarantine, or back on a plane returning home if your test does not comply. Read the fine print, and make sure the approved labs are actually approved for your state.) Upon arrival, the check in process at the airport very efficient and fast. Jumping through the Hawaii hoop is a little tedious the first time, but once you are through it, it's really not that bad. We own a fractional at the Montage Kapalua and spend about 4 weeks per year on island, at our Montage Maui home. It is always a pleasure and a privilege returning to the Montage. The positive experience begins the second we pull into the driveway and are greeted by the valet staff and front-of-house. Very 'aloha' and welcoming. The extra support continues to check-in where we are always greeted with a bottle of bubbles or something welcoming in our condo. We are relatively new Montage owners, but our unit is always impeccably sorted, clean and in great shape. The housekeeping staff services the units twice per day, which is very nice. The housekeepers learn your habits and will accommodate requests for the best time for room servicing, also very nice. The Montage grounds are always equally sorted and just gorgeous! There is nothing like the view from this property. My first visit to Maui was actually in Kapalua where I stayed at the old Kapalua Bay Hotel (circa early 2000's) which rested on the Montage property. The old hotel was flattened to make space for the Montage at Kapalua Bay. The views remain unchanged from years past, but the new property is a major improvement as the old hotel was losing it's classic shine and charm. The Montage staff throughout the property from the Hideaway lounge to the pool staff are all fabulous. Covid19 has been difficult on the locals, so there is extra aloha extended as they are very happy to see returning travelers. I've previously reviewed the Montage, so I'll spare some of the traditional details, but will say that we have found everything to be 100%, 5 star and just as the property was on our first visit.... Regarding Ownership: If you are considering fractional ownership on Maui, or a timeshare, I thought I would explain why we decided to become Montage owners vs some other options including remaining traditional renters. Over the past twenty years, I have literally stayed in pretty much all Hawaii 4, 5 star hotels on all islands, and I do have some favorites...But, when we stayed at the Montage for the first time, we quickly knew that nothing really compared and it uniquely fit our criteria. Here's why. We like 5 star properties, excellent service, great food options, nice gyms/spas, private adult pools and oceanfront locations...We have high standards and do not make excuses for how we like to travel in Hawaii. While preferring 5 star experiences, we also enjoy the extra room a condo provides with condo amenities vs a typical hotel room. Unfortunately, our condo experiences on HI islands in the past were more 3 star, riddled with loud kids, large families, bad food, crowded everything and generally not a good fit for what we seek in a vacation experience. These 3 star condo experiences were almost always cut short and we ended up back at the five star hotel properties we love. Here's the Maui dilemma...Finding a five star hotel experience + a condo roominess/amenities experience is a stretch on Maui. Montage does a nice job of bringing a five star hotel experience to roomy residential condos in a gorgeous environment with all the amenities we desire. The setting is less people-dense than most properties (which is nice right now) and it just feels very residential, peaceful, quiet and comfortable. Montage is #1 pick for us and checks all boxes, and now we can say we own a little bit of Maui dirt, well, at least we have the dirt 4 weeks each year....I will say as a Hyatt Residence owner, we have stayed many times at the Hyatt Kaanapali Residences and we absolutely love this 4 star property. So, if Kapalua is too remote for you, consider the Hyatt for either rental, or share purchase. We are not fans of the Westin timeshare property, you can find my Westin review if you are interested. So, I hope this was helpful. I thought some of you out there might like to travel like we do and might be considering a purchase. Thanks for hanging in there reading this long piece. I'm always open to taking any questions. Mahalo, Brent

The Montage at Kapalua was pristine - from the service, to the room, food, spa, pool and beach as well as the property itself. While visiting during the pandemic the hotel ensured that cleanliness was consistent - safety was a priority and client service was EXCELLENT!! Anna our concierge was amazing and booked everything for us on and off the property. She was enthusiastic, professional and courteous and responsive in every way. At the Montage the team’s focus is making sure you have a first rate experience. If you are going to Maui - this is the place to stay - it is elegant and refined. We’ve stayed at other resorts on Maui but this is the one that we will always stay at going forward. The location, service, amenities and the room is unsurpassed (huge with full kitchen and sub zero refrigerator, dishwasher, big dining table, full living room, wine refrigerator, walk in closet, 2 bathrooms, amazing bedroom, beautifully decorated with first rate finishes and an impressive balcony). I felt guilty not using such a beautifully appointed kitchen. We are in property and off each day and evening. You can reserve adjacent rooms easily to adjust the configuration for a family stay. This vacation at the Montage at Kapalua was the best - you will be thankful to experience all this resort has to offer.

The Montage bought a failed Ritz Carlton condo development and turned it into an all suite hotel with kitchen, washer/dryer and all hotel amenities including turndown. They give you a nice supply of detergent, coffee etc so you can cook some of your meals ... there is a Costco 50 min away and a nice grocery store 5 min away. The rooms, the pool and the spa can't be beat and the attentive service from friendly employees is terrific. The hotel's three restaurants are superb. we went just after HI reopened and the hotel did not miss a beat. Go with kids or another couple and then the price is not so bad.

Wonderful hotel. Hotel grounds are impeccable and staff was very welcoming of our family. Everywhere we went they knew our name and the names of our girls. Paintbox is a must with kids and we will plan to do that again next trip. Montage Merits is something so simple, yet makes the kids excited for the next day. The room size and amenities are second to none on the island, the view is incredible. Access to the beaches around Kapalua is great and better than the Ritz or surrounding condos. Needless to say we will keep coming back and as long as the quality stays where it is, we hope to purchase a unit here. Mahalo!!!

This hotel was excellent. Nice staff, big pools, right by the ocean. The only things were: 1. It was very expensive, but it was great for the rooms and view 2. The cliff jump. Here’s what happened: We were walking one day along the beautiful views and we see all these lifeguards and paramedics. We were wondering why-so we asked someone. They said, “Someone was jumping off the cliff-and a wave struck him, and he is stuck in between the sharp rocks.” This vacation was one of the best I have ever been on-but don’t do the cliff jump.
