The Four Seasons resorts have always been the epitome of class, indulgence and pampering. One, in particular, stands out because of its tranquility, the second to none service, and luxury – Maui at Wailea, Hawaii. Where to begin? The Four Season Maui at Wailea Beach is located on a stunning white-sand crescent of the island’s southwest shores with the impressive peak of Haleakala in the background.
The Four Season Maui boasts 380 luxurious rooms – from guest rooms and suites to Club rooms and Club suites. The latter are located on the eighth floor, and have access to a library, magazines, and board games. The views of the Pacific Ocean and the resort’s Plumeria Garden from Club suites are nothing short of stunning. This is the perfect place for relaxing and sipping cocktails. Most of the guest rooms have a private lanai (an open-sided veranda), they are generous in size, with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. The furniture here is contemporary Hawaiian.
In-room amenities include soft terry bathrobes, bath products by Lorenzo Villoresi, down pillows, ice delivery, beach tote, a private bar, iHome docking station, DVD / CD, in-room safe, tea / coffee maker, evening turndown service, and room cleaning services twice daily, to mention just a few.
If you are an avid golfer, this will be your slice of heaven. The Four Seasons Maui has three golf courses – Wailea Blue Course, Wailea Gold Course, and Wailea Emerald Course. The 18-hole Blue Course lies on the low slopes of the Haleakala Moutain, and it was designed by Arthur Jack Snyder in 1972. The Gold Course is a bit more rugged, and suitable for skilled golfers who don’t mind taking on a challenge, while the Emerald Course is the most scenic of all. Designed by Robert Trent Jones II, this par-72 course resembles a tropical playground.
If you are not too keen on golf, you can choose one of the following numerous activities – swimming in one of the Four Seasons Maui’s three swimming pools (Serenity, Fountain and Waterfall), play some tennis, go whale watching, zip-lining, horseback riding, book a helicopter tour, and go on scenic waterfall hikes and Haleakala volcano tours. If you don’t feel like leaving the resort, there is the Game Room in the hotel itself with big-screen television, board games, pool tables, table tennis and a variety of video games to play. The Four Seasons Maui is hedonism personified.
