The staff were so helpful and made sure we were so comfortable during our stay. Aaron one of the valets made a great first impression and made us feel so welcome. Carena, one of the staff, made sure that we had everything we needed and granted any request that we could've wanted. Our room was beautiful and so neat and clean. Couldn't have asked for anything ore from Hotel Wailea! Would definitely recommend, especially for the super staff!
My husband and I selected the Hotel Wailea after almost 2 years of research and planning for a belated 10 year anniversary trip. And it went even beyond our expectations. We originally had planned to stay at the Grand Wailea next door and while a beautiful hotel, the Hotel Wailea is adults only (major plus) and also small and boutique (major plus also). We had the pool to ourselves sometimes in the early morning/evening (since it was open 24 hours) and even during the day it was never uncomfortably crowded and easy to get a nice place. Being located off the beach was fine for us and the staff always accommodating taking us to and from the beach. The hotel grounds and gardens are breathtaking also! The hotel service for a spot on the beach with towels, umbrella and ice water on the beach was wonderful and felt special. Our room view was absolutely beyond compare and completely worth paying for a partial ocean view. The kitchen with some provided snacks and drinks was a great perk and we loved the bathroom with huge shower and tub. The location of Wailea was also really great for us, and we appreciated the car service to and from restaurants in the area. We also loved the canoe ride and turtle spotting that we did with Kevin and the Hawaiian Outrigger company. We highly recommend that! I also treated myself to my first massage post-covid, and it was really amazing to enjoy that in my room after a busy day of hiking and beach time. The staff was incredible, and I am already missing the Aloha vibe of the resort and Maui itself. We hope to make it back again soon! Thank you so much for a wonderful memorable vacation!!! P.S. Also loved the 2 breakfasts we had at the restaurant with the amazing views!…
When my wife recommended a hotel that was not on the beach, I was shocked. However, we could not have been more pleased. They have staff on call to drive you to the beach and pick you up at any time and it takes 2-3 minutes. They have staff at the beach to set up your chairs and umbrella and provide cold water. They have all kinds of stuff to rent on the beach (we did paddle boarding). The rooms are incredible and the pictures online don’t do it justice. The AC gets very cold. The staff is incredibly friendly and seem very genuine. This is a more boutique resort with only 72 rooms (I believe) and is adults only. It is quite and relaxing. When we come back, we will definitely stay here.
Hotel Wailea is incredible - from the staff / amenities / size of the hotel itself and suites. It was a perfect honeymoon location, we hope to be back soon. The pool was quiet and the shuttle to the beach / activities was so easy. Check in was a breeze and the service was awesome throughout the hotel.
Everything about Hotel Wailea was amazing. My wife and I had an amazing stay and can't wait to come back. The food, drinks, poolside and atmosphere were all wonderful and just what we needed on our honeymoon.
