Hotel Wailea defines the ultimate Hawaiian-island escape. Perched above the deep-blue water of the Pacific Ocean and tucked away in forest of lush palm and banana trees, Hotel Wailea is an ultra-private Maui boutique resort and Hawaii’s only Relais & Châteaux property. For those dreaming of adventure, romance and laid-back beach luxury, Hotel Wailea is waiting to wish you aloha.
Hotel Wailea began as a mysterious property with a mischievous past. Originally constructed in the 1980s as a member club called the Diamond, it had the ocean at its feet, Maui’s dormant Haleakalā volcano at its back and intrigue at its core.
Hotel Wailea was recognized as the No. 1 Hawaii resort in Travel + Leisure’s 2023 World’s Best Awards, the first property ever to win No. 1 Hawaii two years in a row. Hotel Wailea has also been recognized on the prestigious Travel + Leisure Top 500 World’s Best List for multiple years, including in 2023.
