The Kapalua Villas, Maui
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Kapalua
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 1, 2014

We stayed in Kapalua Ridge Villa 1722 as a couple for a week over Christmas on our first visit to Maui and were very pleasantly surprised. On our first morning, we woke to spectacular, panoramic (180 degree) ocean and Moloka'i views from the upstairs bedroom, complete with rainbows and whales frolicking in the bay! The unit itself was very comfortable, although the furniture is a bit dated; however, this is in line with what we've come to hear about most accommodations on Maui. The kitchen was fairly decent and we were able to cook a Christmas feast. It was lovely to find a few basics (spices, olive oil, tinfoil etc) in the cupboards upon arrival (and the beers and frosted glasses were a nice touch too...). The elevated views from the front windows and lanais make for dramatic sunset views but the downside is that the unit is a fair distance from the nearest beach. We chose to drive because it's too far to lug beach bags, towels, snorkelling gear, chairs etc, but a reasonable alternative would be to use the resort shuttle. Parking spaces for cars in the lots (and butts on the sand) can be challenging to find in the busy season, so we went to the beach early in the mornings. The hall cupboard held the following treasures: a set of snorkelling flippers and goggles, beach chairs, a beach mat, a beach umbrella and a cooler box, in addition to some beach toys. There are 3 great beaches within the resort area: Kapalua Bay (which is great for snorkelling and gentle on kids), Oneloa Bay (a bit wilder and good for surfing) and DT Fleming (good for snorkelling, with lifeguards on duty because the current can apparently be a bit strong). Kapalua Resort was in pristine condition -- not a leaf was out of place in the beautiful gardens and we wondered whether the immaculate state had to do with the Hyundai PGA Tournament which was due to start the following week, or whether this truly was just paradise....:)

This has been our 5th or 6th stay at the Ridge Villas and we have loved every visit here. We've stayed in two units among the trips and both have been excellent. No a/c but with the trade winds blowing, we never missed it. Diane and Terry at Ridge Realty couldn't be nicer and more accommodating (we had to reschedule one of our trips and it wasn't a problem at all.) We love the access to the Coastal Trail and walk it nearly every morning. The views are spectacular and very peaceful and relaxing. We will continue coming back twice a year!

The villas would be considered excellent if you do your due diligence in your research of villas to stay in. Granted some are very old and dated and some are spectacular in renovations..You have to make sure you note Gold Ocean Front for sure and these are the BAy Villas and maybe some Kapalua Ridge Villas. They are pricey. So make sure this is done before you may payment.

Room Tip: Always ask for Gold Standard and Ocean Front or Ocean View. And request for photos to see.

My family stayed at this place for a week this December. The place is very nice; the grounds are beautiful and very well kept. People working there are very helpful and fast to accommodate. The only negative thing was our townhouse. I don't know if it was a rental, but whoever owns it needs to do a serious upgrade and renovation. The carpet was dirty, the restroom downstairs had a smell of old towels and the pipes were making noise every 30 minutes. The bathroom upstairs had a pink mildew and rust.

Also, the serious thoughts need to be invested in the entertainment. Both TV in the unit were probably bought 20 years ago. We couldn't even watch a hockey game because it was pretty small and had a bad resolution. We had to move the furniture closer to TV to be able to see anything on the screen.
Another thing: Maui has a very humid climate, so the owners should have provide 100% cotton sheets, not polyester. It was uncomfortable at night.

We've stayed here 7 or 8 times, we just love the rugged beauty of the northern shore of western Maui. These condos are older, but most have been renovated - granite counters and stainless steel appliances. It will cost you, but stay ocean front - you will see whales from your living room and hear the crashing of waves while you sleep. People who say that you don't spend a lot of time in your room aren't staying at the right places - there's no need to leave this resort!

The entire time spent in Maui was awesome because of our stay in Kapalua. Our family has stayed in this fine establishment before so we were well aware of the quality. The general store was closed for renovation at the time, but Kapalua is close to many outside stores and resturants. The room was very open and clean. Our villa provided a lot of room that a large family could be able to stay in.

Room Tip: Be sure to visit the spa, its included in your stay at Kapalua.

What a phenomenal view from the ocean vista unit at Kapalua Ridge Villas. My business partner plus spouses stayed for a week in 2 ocean view units, planning the coming years markets and closing out the year from the lanai. The Ridge is quiet, away from normal noise of a crowded resort only able to hear the waves, take in the pacific view and appreciate the trade winds. Spacious units, lushly landscaped grounds, convenient to gorgeous, empty beach and excellent restaurants. We're coming back!
