Residence Inn Maui Wailea
Not on the beach, but just up the hill from some of Wailea’s best sands, this all-suite hotel is one of the most popular in the Residence Inn brand. You can find gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean in the open-air lobby with Hawaiian-inspired decor; some guest rooms also offer balconies with views of breathtaking sunrises or sunsets. All of the suites feature fully equipped kitchens, but you can start the day with a complimentary breakfast buffet and later enjoy tropical cocktails at the Hotel Bar Lounge. Complimentary grocery shopping is also available.
- The fitness center is always open and features cardio equipment and free weights.
- The Shops at Wailea’s numerous shops and restaurants are close at hand down the hill, while a short walk uphill are moderately priced Monkeypod Kitchen and La Catrina Cantina y Pizzeria.
Wailea Elua Village
Spanning the length of Ulua Beach, this 24-acre, two-story condo resort is a lushly landscaped haven for those seeking peace and relaxation, but it’s also right by the Wailea Beach Walk, which offers convenient access to beach activities, restaurants, lounges and spas. Spread across 25 buildings, the 152 one-, two- and three-bedroom condos — some facing the ocean, some facing a golf course — are spacious and equipped with everything you’ll need.
- The tranquil grounds include two pools, a beachfront pavilion, putting green, paddle court, fitness center and barbecue areas.
- All condos are air-conditioned — a must in South Maui — and conveniently located to other Wailea attractions, too.
