Perfect place for a romantic getaway. My wife and I stayed here for a week and it was clear the moment we arrived that the staff thought of everything to make our stay memorable. I can't imagine staying anywhere else on Maui; if you're looking for an immaculate and romantic escape, the Hotel Wailea is second-to-none. The only difficult part of our trip was leaving :)

Thank you to Hotel Wailea for making my proposal and hotel stay an experience we will remember for the rest of our lives. The best hotel staff made it incredibly special by decorating our room with rose petals, flowers, treats, champagne on ice, etc. Truly the greatest hotel experience we've ever had. A beautiful stay. Thank you so much. We will be back!

I went to the Birdcage earlier this evening with high expectations based off the positive things that I have heard about this venue. It is safe to say that the descriptions don’t do this place justice at all! The serving staff and management went above and beyond to make sure that my experience was stellar. The food and cocktails left my stomach and my heart feeling full. The ambiance and the views overlooking the Maui coast are incredible. The cocktails are extremely detailed and well crafted, in fact I would say that they are my favorite cocktails in the south Maui/wailea area. I wasn’t even that hungry to be honest but I couldn’t stop ordering various dishes once I tasted the food from their menu. The handcrafted rolls were a great starter. I highly recommend the wagyu and ahi rolls. Despite not being hungry upon my arrival, I continued to order more and more and left every dish bare. Please don’t skip out on the dessert either! The mango passion was one of the best desserts I’ve ever had. It was light and creamy and so so flavorful, each bite made me feel like I was floating away on a cloud of mango and likikoi! If you are traveling to south Maui please put this venue on your list of stops. If I could give this restaurant 10 stars, I would! Mahlo Birdcage! To the chefs, serving staff and mamagement: Bravo!

We’d stayed at this hotel before and had an incredible time, so we decided to come back for our honeymoon. It is a rare business these days that actually works to improve service rather than cutting costs—the hotel seems completely committed to giving travelers the best experience possible. Everyone who works there seems to genuinely like their jobs and the customers, and are always happy to go above and beyond. And the food at the Restaurant and The Birdcage are heads and shoulders above anything else we’ve ever eaten in Maui. Chef Ryan Cruz has built something wonderful. The pool is great; so quiet and relaxing. My only complaint is the prices feel significantly higher than the last time we were here, and we actually ordered a lot less there because of it. The guest services staff were terrific and always ready with great recommendations and resources for us, not to mention help when we needed it. We are normally shy about using concierges, but they make it so easy. It’s not on the beach, but the valets will drive you to local beaches, including ones that are much more peaceful than the absolute chaos of the resort beaches. We cannot wait to come back.

A beautifully unique experience. We came here for our honeymoon and were met with the most personal service. The facilities are beautiful and extremely well maintained. The staff are always happy to help. The food is pricey but delicious. If you want to dine cheaper you can buy food in the local shops/food market and store it in your fridge or eat out in some of the less pricey restaurants in the centre. The hotel shuttle will take you to a variety of locations where you can choose to do that. I can’t wait to return!!!

This is a beautiful, quaint resort. If you're looking for a quieter, adult-only resort this is for you. It isn't directly on a beach, but the staff will drive you to one of the beaches in the area and even send you with a chair, towels and a cooler. They also will take you to other areas in Wailea. Ths is great if you want a great dinner off property and don't want to drive. The rooms are beautiful. We had a great view of the Pacific and could see whales spashing. The staff also was very friendly.

My husband and I just returned from a week at Hotel Wailea. The experience was wonderful. We wanted a quiet spot with a beautiful view and upscale amenities. These expectations were met! Normally we stay in Kaanapali but the Sheraton Maui was fully booked. After reading numerous reviews of Hotel Wailea and deciding we did not need to be right “ on the beach” we booked. The pros of the property:: our room was fabulous! 034. It was spacious and beautifully decorated. We loved the spacious lanai that looked out to the ocean with a large koi pond in between. We ate breakfast out there nearly every morning. We booked our trip through Costco Travel and had a $60 daily breakfast credit. We were invited one evening to “ The Tree House” located on the property for a cocktail party. This was a lot of fun… and such a gracious gesture for guests. The pool bartender’s name is James. He holds a “ mixology class” at the bar Saturday mornings. His banter is fun and engaging and he makes terrific mai Tai’s. Our first stop after checking into our room was to the pool bar. It was a great way to start our week. There are many choices for accommodations on Maui. We had decided to splurge on this trip. We needed to unwind following our son’s wedding and are coming up on our 55 th wedding anniversary. We loved this resort and will likely return. The cons are few to none. I gave the resort 4 stars instead of 5 because of the restaurants. The Birdcage Bar service is very slow. The main restaurant is more expensive than MaMa’s Fish House and the food was small portions. We both chose the steak for our main course and it was disappointing. I had a meringue dessert which was bland and my husband had cheesecake which was just average. With prices like this you expect an extraordinary experience. There was no one out front to greet us upon arrival which is not the way you want to start a 5 star hotel experience. We arrived at 2 pm. We were given an “ early check in” at the front desk which was great though and given leis which is a special touch. Thank you for a wonderful week!

My husband and I recently celebrated a milestone anniversary at Hotel Wailea. Our anniversary frequently falls during school spring break, and so we wanted a quiet, secluded, adults-only resort where we didn't have to fight for a seat at the pool. The hotel did not disappoint. It was quiet, luxurious and elegant in an understated way, and the service was outstanding. The employees really inhabit the aloha spirit, always ready with a friendly smile and a willingness to help. The suites are large and comfortable, with complimentary snacks and drinks. We had an upper floor suite, and we could see the ocean (and whales!) from our balcony. We did the complimentary outrigger canoeing excursion, the snorkeling excursion to Molokini, and the private beach picnic. Highly recommend all 3. The hotel valets are ready to take you anywhere at a moment's notice. We loved being driven to a beach (recommended by the concierge) and linked up when we were done. No need to hassle with parking or lugging our stuff. The recommendations by the concierge were spot-on. Also recommend the Restaurant for a special occasion meal, as well as the Birdcage for drinks. The resident lovebirds are so charming, too.

The Hotel Wailea was amazing from the first minute we arrived. After checking in we were given a tour of the property by Zane. He brought us to our room and made sure we were settled in. On our first evening we had a wonderful dinner at The Birdcage. This setting is one of the best on the island. A fantastic view of the sun setting into the ocean makes for a very romantic evening. The Birdcege manager, C'elsea and our server, Michaela insured we had a perfect evening. Our room was well appointed with a view of the ocean. This, combined with a very relaxing atmosphere made for the best vacation we've had.

My wife and I went to the Birdcage for our anniversary. We very much enjoyed the experience. The sunset view from this location is panoramic. Easily the best sunset view in Maui. The cocktails were wonderfully balanced and aesthetic, and the seafood was fresh and vibrant. Although we did not partake in wine (other than a celebratory glass of bubbles), the offerings of wine and sake looked to be well paired with the food offerings. The atmosphere was relaxing, and the staff was very presentable and well spoken. Quinn was our server, and was a pleasure to have as the host. Natalie, who delivered items, was very warm and engaging. I wish I could remember the names of the other team members, as everyone there seemed to work together to ensure good service. A special note to the manager, Jonathan, who worked seamlessly with his team and made us feel welcomed and appreciated. We will definitely go back!
