Maui’s most beloved boutique hotel, The Hotel Wailea is a 15-acre all suite resort on the Island of Maui. Not only does the hilltop gem host the intimate and oh-so romantic Capische restaurant, Hotel Wailea has recently unveiled a slew of new amenities and programs enhancing their haute appeal.

Get your day started off right in the property’s new gym and spa. The upgraded fitness facility offers panoramic views of Wailea bay plus complimentary daily yoga classes. Services such as the Pohaku facial, using hot Hawaiian stones, and the traditional Lomi Lomi massage have both been added to the renovated spa menu.

Following a rejuvenating work out and some spa refreshment, guests can order a to-go picnic lunch of freshly prepared sandwiches, salads, fruits, juices and head to the beach. The Hotel Wailea offers a shuttle that chariots guests to a secluded ocean front spot boasting a VIP section stocked with sunscreen, refreshments, umbrellas and chairs. In the case you need a break from the sun, the Shops at Wailea are just a short ride away.

Catch the last of the day’s rays back at one of the poolside cabanas. Enjoy a cocktail and late afternoon bite at the recently opened pool bar and lounge.  Beers, select wines, and scrumptious Capische concocted appetizers like Hawaiian Pizza with Proscuitto d’Parma and Grilled Sicilian Spice Ahi Sandwich are just a hint of what’s available on the haute new bar menu.

After a perfect Hawaiian day, delight in a pre-dinner drink at the weekend lounge. Sip organic martinis as a DJ spins and guests dance the night away.

If an all girls trip is on your upcoming Maui Agenda, the charming hotel also has a brand new four-day package: The Maui Ocean Divas Package. Created for the adventurous wahine (Hawaiian for girl), you and your bestees will have the chance to kite board, stand-up paddle board, surf, perfect your yoga poses with private instructors, and unwind with group facials, and pedis.

The enchanting “on the bluff”  hotel has certainly stepped up its hip factor for adventurous, scene-seeking, food and wine loving travelers.
