The Four Seasons Maui is a luxury hotel originally opened in 1990 that has never lost its Hawaiian elegance. The Four Seasons Resort Maui is located on a small cliff that overlooks Wailea Beach: a crescent-shaped shore with tan, powdery sand that stretches over a quarter of a mile. The Four Seasons looks out over a lovely section of the beach, which it shares with several other neighboring hotels. The Four Seasons brand is known for being family-friendly, so although the hotel is doing a great job at keeping certain facilities for adults-only, honeymooners need to remember that it’s not an adult-only facility in itself. However, couples will surely appreciate little romantic touch-ups, such as an adult-only serenity pool offering romantic extras i.e. romantic cabanas and a swim-up bar. The hotel is designed and maintained in an immaculate manner – marble entryway, marble entryway, giant windows, impressive pools, and ocean views are just the entries on this luxurious menu.

Moreover, many rooms offer ocean views, however, there are a dozen room view options so please do make sure to check the hotel’s website to make the right choice for your stay.

Bathrooms in each room can be considered as a mini highlight of the hotel – all marbled, featuring large soaking baths and separately, rainfall shower. Some bathrooms are also provided with locally made toiletries featuring Hawaii-inspired scents. 

The Four Seasons Maui offers an abundance of facilities and activities such as a helicopter tour mixed with a sustainable dining experience. Some features include a putting green, tennis court, and introductory scuba diving lessons. There a three saltwater swimming pools – each with an individual atmosphere and purpose. The first one – the fountain pool is a central spot of the hotel and it’s open to everyone – both family-friendly and appropriate for adults. Around the pool, couples can sip a cocktail in a hot tub. The attention to detail is visible everywhere, guests relaxing on sun lounges can ask for a fully loaded Kindle, SPF creams of fresh towels. Alternatively, you can pick a curtained cabanas with flat-screen TVs, personal service, and Nespresso Machines. Couples will appreciate the serenity pool available for adults-only that can be accessed through a gated staircase. The ambiance is fully peaceful – from the infinity pool guests can watch breathtaking views of Wailea Beach or use one of the two hot tubs. 

The hotel offers beach access where guests can take their time to sunbathe or spend time actively through paddleboarding, surfing, snorkeling, or participating in yoga lessons. Another highlight of the hotel is its on-site SPA that’s considered as one of the best on the Island. The SPA is focused on health and wellness including chiropractic sessions, guided meditation, and acupuncture. However, guests looking for a standard offering won’t be disappointed – there is more than a wide variety of massage options, and treatments. The Fours Seasons Maui offers a wide choice of wine & dine options.

A mini-guide through the areas of Maui Island:

West Maui: Lahaina, Kaanapali, Kapalua

Locals stop to point out rainbows in Lahaina, a one-time whaling village tucked between the West Maui mountains and the ocean, and so inviting that humpback whales return yearly to raise their young. Ancient Hawaiian royals were the first to converge on this sunny spot, followed by whalers and missionaries. Today it’s a base for eco-minded chefs, passionate artists and dedicated surf gods willing to share their knowledge with goofyfooted newbies. Near the harbor, wooden storefronts that once housed saloons, dance halls, and brothels are now crammed with art galleries, souvenir shops, and, well, still plenty of watering holes. 

In this area of Maui you will find:

  • Lahaina Harbor
  • Great Surfing
  • Whale-watching Cruise 
  • Old Lahaina Lau Experience

Recommended hotels in Lahaina Kaanapali & Kapalua: On a budget: Tiki Beach Hostel Upperscale: Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa ; Luxury: Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa

Hana & Paia 

The off-the-beaten-track area will be loved by adventure lovers. This chapter starts with time-honored Hana, where you’ll relearn the meaning of s-l-o-w and talk story with people who actually take the time. Beyond Hana lies Wailua Falls, the most stunning roadside waterfall on the entire island, and the cool forested trails of ʻOheʻo Gulch. In sleepy Kipahulu, discover the gravesite of famed aviator Charles Lindbergh and savor organic snacks at off-the-grid farms. A fitting finale to it all is the adventurous romp along the Piʻilani Hwy and through the cowboy village of Kaupo. 

Fewer tourists choose to lodge along this bucket list drive on the east side of the island. The bonus, of course, is that you’ll enjoy the epic views and waterfalls galore here without the crowds when the day-trippers go home. Best for those who love active adventures with fewer crowds.
