I decided last minute to travel to Maui for 5 days solo to celebrate my 36th birthday. So I looked at EVERY hotel review on yelp.com & here. Since I only had 3 days before flying out- I was limited on where I could stay since it was labor day weekend & most hotels had already been booked. I saw the Four Seasons & kinda felt a need for some pampering so I said, "why not?"
I arrived & was blown away in a positive way regarding the level of sevice. The staff were all very pleasant & seemed very genuine. The grounds were impecable- perhaps a little too manicured for my taste. The views were magnificent.
I was originally placed in room #626 but wasn't too keen on looking at the putting green & asked if there was another room with a different view that was in the same price category. Boy am I glad I asked! There was indeed! Room #679 which was a 100% better view- the entire gardens with a partial ocean view. The staff was so helpful- it was not quite 3 pm (regular check in time) but my 1st room was available so they let me check in early at 2 pm. When I requested a room switch they offered to move my luggage for me once my room was ready- nice! I went to the pool in the meantime. Wow... I loved the serenity pool, but there was always a wait list for a chair- forget a cabana. There was nice music playing underwater in the serenity pool which is such a nice touch.
The restaurants were not that impressive for the money, but ok. I liked the breakfast buffet at Duo. Drinks were very, very good- loved the mai tai.
I spent one day in the spa. It was nice, but I was disappointed that there wasn't a jacuzzi in the spa- only a small wet sauna. The prices are through the roof for typical services offered in most spas. I had an oxygen facial that was just ok. I was not really able to relax though because she kept talking about which product she was using next & what it did. ugh... I should have got a massage.
I spent 5 glorious nights here. I even had dinner in my room one night. The staff that delivered the meal set up an entire table setting w/ flower arrangement for me- nice touch.
I especially loved the music channels that you can play in the bathroom. I would leave the Hawaiian music playing so it I could hear it upon entering my room.
Housekeeping comes twice a day. They provide a turn down service in the evening & will even place houseslippers near the bed for you.
The bed is just heavenly... like laying in a big fluffy cloud. I really want to duplicate the bed in my own home.
Overall, I really enjoyed my stay here, but I don't think I will do it again. I prefer a hotel with more personality. I also felt that Wailea was similar- nothing like the character of Paia. I wish I could have stayed at Paia Inn, but they were booked.
The only way to make this type of resort really pay off in my opinion is to literally stay here & never leave. I prefer to go explore.
