This was one of the best travel discoveries I have ever made in my life. My wife and I love Maui but hadn't been to Wailea for many years (before we met). I was looking for just the right spot to celebrate her special birthday and stumbled on Hotel Wailea in my research. At first, I was surprised by the great ratings and feedback, since it's setback from the shoreline, where all the "grand" resorts are located. I trusted my instincts (and all the accolades) and locked it in. From the moment we pulled up to the resort to the moment we (sadly) drove away, we had such a delightful experience. We met some very nice people at the Friday cocktail reception, and the staff is friendly and welcoming. Thanks go to Markus and his amazing team (including Andi at the front desk and Jimmy behind the pool bar). It's not for everyone (adults only), but it's more than perfect for a couple's getaway. We will be back, for sure!

we can not stop coming back to what really is a well kept secret in that this hotel offers all the pluses you want (save for not on the beach) and none of the minuses to overcome. each morning as i walked to the lobby for coffee (yes there is coffee in the room but no flowers, birds, waterfalls, etc) i realize how fortunate i am to have found this hotel and thankful that my wife and i saved enough money so that we can come back each year for two weeks. you do not know what day it is nor the time. you only know that you are in paradise

Hotel Wailea is magical! We stayed for a quick three nights for a babymoon, and our stay could not have been more perfect. From the gorgeous, elegant rooms to the staff who seemed to always be there just when you needed them, but were never overbearing, the experience was absolute perfection. The resort is stunning, with every detail meticulously thought through to make you relax the instant you step onto the property. I debated about staying here as it is not on the beach, but it is so easy to have the staff drop you off at the beach club area in one of the resort's Teslas. Honestly you probably get to the beach faster than if you were staying at a large resort and had to walk through a huge property! We never had to wait for a ride to the beach or to dinner in Wailea. The small size of the resort makes the service impeccable. Small touches like a chocolate cake in our room for our babymoon were lovely. And, it was the best chocolate cake I've ever had! We can't wait to return when we decide to take our first vacation sans baby!

We came for our honeymoon and the level of service was superb. Staff are very welcoming and accommodating. Every feature at this hotel adds to the comfort of guests - the well-prepared gardens, the great locally-sourced food and the quiet, relaxed feel. This is a wonderful place to come for couples.
