Though the hotel has only been a Montage for just over a month, the team is already demonstrating the very best qualities of that brand's reputation for genuine, warm, personal quality service. And the cool part is, they are really giving a 'Hawaii' version of Montage - from the lei greeting upon check in to a breakfast with the freshest pineapple and even bath products that are the same quality as those at all Montage hotels but that emphasize the famous scents associated with Hawaii.
I especially loved my experiences at Cane & Canoe restaurant. The service team is warm, professional and attentive (giving personalization to every meal order to reflect each diner's individual taste) and the food quality is five-star extraordinary. I was especially impressed with both the lamb and the tenderloin entrees and the ahi poke with avocado is precisely what one would expect from poke in Hawaii. The featuring of local beverages - Kona coffee and lager from Maui's brewery - are an especially satisfying and exceptional experience.
I loved meeting the cultural ambassador, Silla, and enjoyed shopping for local goods at their 'Mahana' market. The pool deck that is at the center of the resort is nothing short of magnificent, with its coves and grottos. And there is a great vibe at the Hana Ho bar each night at sunset. The adjacent Kapalua Bay beach is awesome for recreation and there are some awesome dining experiences just off property - Merriman's at the point and the Plantation are both great experiences. I loved both the tennis center and the Kapalua Golf Course, which the resort transportation was happy to get me to with ease. Also, the Spa Montage facility is second to none and the morning yoga class was one perfect way to wake up (and take in an outrageous view of the Pacific).
I recommend a catamaran voyage as part of any Maui visit, but most of all, I just loved relaxing in the outrageously spacious rooms (including full kitchen) and huge stone bathrooms and taking in the endless views of Molokai and Lanai. I cannot say enough about Montage Kapalua Bay, but I've already said plenty so I'll just stop right here and finish with a simple but sincere 'Mahalo.'
