The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua
About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- Fodor's calls it "one of Maui's most notable resorts"
- Rooms are ultra-luxe with marble bathrooms and private lanais
- Environmental Education Center hosts guided rainforest hikes and snorkeling trips
"This resort is a complete universe" Frommer's says of the AAA Five Diamond Ritz-Carlton Kapalua, blending effortlessly into the tropical hillside high above D.T. Fleming Beach along Maui's western coast.
The location is a bit remote, but with plenty of amenities -- four restaurants and two bars serve signature favorites like scallop, prawn and onaga bouillabaisse and macadamia nut pancakes, with many ingredients sourced from the on-site organic garden.
The 17,500-square-foot spa is "gorgeous" and "blissful" (Fodor's) with island-inspired treatments like pineapple-papaya or Hawaiian red sea salt and coconut oil scrubs. A three-tiered 10,000-square-foot pool flows through the center of the grounds (open 24 hours) and there is a separate pool area for kids.
Families will love the offerings from the Environmental Education center and Ambassadors of the Environment program, which hosts learning experiences like guided rain forest hikes and snorkeling trips to nearby coral reefs. Try to arrange your stay around one of the signature events held at the hotel like the Celebration of the Arts Festival or the Kapalua Wine & Food Festival.
The accommodations are elegant and just as luxurious as you would expect from the Ritz-Carlton name: dark wood floors, dazzling marble bathrooms and private lanais that look out onto the lush grounds and stunning coastline. The rooms are on the smaller side by luxury hotel standards, though.
It is a 10-minute walk to the beach, but there is a complimentary shuttle to the sandy shore, as well as the shops, dining and championship golf courses within the surrounding Kapalua Resort. There is a $25 daily resort fee that includes local calls and Wi-Fi.
