Superb lobby entrance with overall subtle design elements, with dramatic high ceilings and ocean vistas welcoming you the minute you step from your car. Art works are impressive, as is the lighting scheme, featuring oversized iron wall sconces with seeded glass and rustic chandeliers, sage green shutter panels with bronze hardware and limestone floors. A touch of British West Indies in feeling, low key as with most FS Resorts, until you gaze upon the unbeatable beauty of the Maui coast and sunsets surrounding public spaces. Don't miss the walking path between the Four Seasons and Fairmount--this must be a daily event for the sunset.
Without a doubt the best hotel in the area – by a mile – we toured the other two main/large adjacent properties, the Grand Wailea and The Fairmount, neither of which can come close, really no comparison at all. We had an ocean front room and though it goes without saying that the view was super, the room was otherwise unremarkable, albeit a decent size with a nice large bathroom and lanai. The room featured ample closet space, comfortable beds and was relatively quiet, but not crazy luxurious or anything.
The hotel has a very nice gym, game room, spa, yoga and aerobic classes, and appears to be a very popular family hotel, though not to the point of negatively impacting the other guests. There are three pools, the main large one with center fountain, a kid’s pool, and the relatively new, and awesome, Serenity (infinity) pool with dedicated bar area and private cabanas (and no kids or teens).
There is a beautiful powder-sand beach with immediate/easy access, with all the expected activities such as kayaking, snorkeling, beach-refresher dives and paddle boarding. The hotel features a few good shops and some impressive restaurants, such as Spago (tasty), though one casual “normal” priced venue would be appreciated—i.e. even fish tacos and a quesadilla with a couple of poolside cocktails will run you close to $100.00 for two, and, while not shocking considering the venue, it would still be nice to have a good casual dining choice on site.
Service overall was very friendly and helpful, as you would expect. The Shops at Wailea are nearby and the hotel offers complimentary transportation to this and other nearby venues. Some of the common areas need minor refurbishment, like public bathroom interior doors, molding, hardware, wall covering, common area carpet in some locations, and a few other small things (mostly unnoticeable by “normal people”). Overall the Four Seasons Maui is a dramatic and lovely property in a stunningly beautiful location with excellent service that you won’t soon forget.
