The Four Seasons Maui at Wailea is our most popular destination for couples, especially honeymooners. This resort definitely has a romantic air; it is also the “see and be seen” hotspot. Guests celebrating a special occasion should kick off the trip on the right foot with a private airport transfer in the sleek and sexy Tesla. Then, after arriving to the resort, indulge in everything the property has to offer especially the adults-only sanctuary pool and the spa. And, for a little adventure, be sure to give the outrigger canoeing a whirl!
The resort is centered around a U-shape building and your room selection is important here. The entry-level rooms, called Mountainside, do come with a lower rate, but you get what you pay for with the view. Chances are likely that you could spend your trip looking at a tennis court or the top of a parking garage. Definitely book the Garden rooms or higher. For a real wow-factor, the Ocean-View Prime One Bedroom Suites are the place to be! Preferred Partner guests will receive a room upgrade whenever possible, but this is a popular resort and upgrades are frequently unavailable. Book the room that you want; don’t count on that upgrade!
The rooms themselves are spacious and nicely furnished. I particularly enjoyed the punch of personality in the bathroom carpets and the breezy balconies perfect for a morning coffee. Some people won’t like the long hallways in-between elevators or the narrow, deep rooms that are required at a large property in order to get the most rooms with views.
Top-notch luxury service is the real highlight here. The Four Seasons Maui does not charge a resort fee and you will never feel “nickel and dimed.” Despite the lack of a resort fee, the hotel offers everything you would expect and more! Beach and pool service (water, sunscreen, towels, etc) is complimentary and the attendants walk around regularly handing out small treats and refreshments. For a more exclusive pool experience, check out the adults-only Serenity pool, but book a cabana in advance; This area fills up fast! If you are traveling with kids you will want to take advantage of the Kids For All Seasons program (also complimentary). You will feel pampered through-and-through during your stay here!
