Spent a two-week long vacation back in Feb, 2009 in Maui Hawaii. First week was about surfing and beach relaxation so we stayed elsewhere(The parents of a friend of ours got a condo) right on the beachfront. The second week we drove here and stayed at Kapalua Villas for a golf week. The bay course and plantation course are stunning and super challenging. Totally kicked my little butt. LOL. Everything was quite expensive coz it was during Chinese New Year. We got a fairway view villa first and then we got upgraded to a gold ocean view villa which was quite big for two of us. The rooms are so nice and we enjoyed watching sun setting on our balcony. Beautiful and peaceful ... truly relaxing. There was a super market nearby the reception and it was a nice drive around the area as well. LOVE IT ! I spent so much money at the shops there on things with kapalua butterfly logo on it I don't even want to talk about it ... Guess I went a little bit C-R-A-Z-Y first time in Hawaii and staying at sort of a golf resort. Still I will return to this place. There is a restaurant called Merriman's Kapalua left me great memory too. Regional Hawaiian Cuisine. Amazing food.
