Tucked into the lush sloping hillside above Keawakapu Beach (which translates to "forbidden cove") sits the Wailea Ekahi Village condo resort. The property spans across 34 acres overlooking the shore, with most units a five- to 10-minute walk from the resort's private, gated entrance to the beach.

“This sparkling stretch of sand is a showstopper” (Lonely Planet) and the name suits Keawakapu well -- the cove is a hidden gem buried amid Maui’s miles upon miles of coastline. It is less crowded and quieter than the area’s main beaches, with the “perfect angle” (Travel + Leisure) for spectacular sunset views.

Each condo is one of a kind, but all come completely furnished with a private lanai, in-unit washer/dryer and a fully equipped kitchen stocked with home-away-from-home essentials: cookware, utensils, paper towels and even laundry detergent. A complimentary concierge service is available seven days a week to help guests maximize their island time by arranging pre-arrival grocery delivery or scheduling whale-watching trips, scuba gear rentals and surfing lessons.

Hotel-style amenities are plentiful, with four outdoor swimming pools, complimentary beach towels and a beachfront pavilion that has barbecue grills, restrooms and a full kitchen (including a microwave, stove and refrigerator so you never have to leave the sand). Each condo includes complimentary Wi-Fi, and parking and phone calls are also free.

I was disappointed with the gift certificates offered in the “deal”. Most of them are just percentage off and some were expired. The unit is a bit old, in need of paint and we had a plumbing issue during our stay. With that said, we had an amazing trip, loved the location and felt like it was a good value. Thank you TravelZoo!!

Great location, short walk to children's pool & beach access, but our specific unit happened to be near main road so we had a lot of traffic noise. Fully equipped living unit, including washer/dryer, Beach towels & accessories, so much more space vs hotel room. AirBnB or VRBO type accommodations, but without the extra deposits, fees & cleanup; Hotel type housekeeping, and concierge without as high hotel fees tacked on top of room rate. With TravelZoo voucher, it was a tremendous value for what it included.
Other Comments
Our unit had really inadequate lighting & old lamps with coiled bulbs covered by dark lamp shades. Had to remove lamp shades in order to read anything. Those vouchers for local services were not so valuable and even included a couple which had expired earlier than our stay dates!?!

We liked the Wailea Ekahi Village. Nice beach, pool and attractive landscaping. We will be more picky about the unit location next time.
Other Comments
Unit 35D was a disappointment. We paid extra for ocean-view and it was at the back of the property far from the beach. Too much road noise and no comfortable seating. Living room had two uncomfortable sofa beds. I can see the need for one but they were at an angle to one another so only one could be used at a time. One of them should be replaced with two lounge chairs for watching TV.

We received an upgrade at no additional cost. We booked a one bdrm and received a two bdrm 2 bath. Really outstanding view and great staff and service from the Destination people. We love the Wailea area and will return next year (I hope)
