We just came back from a magical week at the Montage in Maui. I cannot say enough good things about this special resort.
The property is just spectacular. The lobby is open and airy, providing an elegant yet relaxing stage for the expansive facility. The pools are sophisticated but welcoming. Connected by tunnels and caves with an occasional waterfall, there are a variety of places to cool off while also providing variety for the kids to enjoy. The hona hut by the pool provides easy access to delicious drinks (Ask the bartender Manu to make you one of his signature lava flow or chi-chi - with or without alcohol). They even had a family movie night by the pool one night -- a drive-in by the beach!
The Kapalua beach is a short walk away. It's small and welcoming - making it easy for anyone to try snorkeling or boogie boarding for the first time. Montage guests get access to beach chairs and discounts on equipment rental making the experience seamless and easy to enjoy in short durations. We also enjoyed use of the great tennis courts across the street at the Kapalua tennis garden. Courts were always available and there was a well stocked tennis store to give us balls and access to rackets if needed. The Pineapple Grill next store was also a great place for a casual and delicious dinner.
Beyond the physical beauty and peaceful setting of this extraordinary property, the spectacular service and attention to detail are what really makes the experience a special standout. Every person we met who worked there seemed to have a personal mission statement of making sure our family vacation exceeded expectations. Every morning was greeted with multiple "Aloha's" and every question was answered with a "sure, we can do that." Stacy at the Cane and Canoe, Montage's signature restaurant (which is also delicious), went out of her way to drop off a fish guide for my kids at our room after they excitedly told her about the fish they saw snorkeling that day.
Mornings were filled with yoga at their gorgeous fitness facility (open view of the beach) or runs on the scenic coastal trail. The fitness instructors were friendly and knowledgeable - definitely a good workout for all levels.
The rooms are beautifully appointed and spacious. Our suite had a well stocked kitchen (we brought in groceries) that made it easy to stay in whenever we wanted a change of pace. The beds were super comfortable and the porch had a fantastic view of the beach.
You just can't go wrong here - total paradise for everyone. We're already planning our return trip.
