Wailea’s Best: Hotel Wailea

While Hotel Wailea doesn’t come with the same international backing or prestigious as the Four Seasons or the Andaz, it does however reign supreme over the former. Sitting atop its perch high above the Wailea coast line, this little boutique hotel can proudly called itself the best hotel in Hawaii.

The 72 room Hotel Wailea is owned and operated by Jonathan McManus, an Oahu boy who took the reigns and led a top to bottom remodel in 2015. McManus believes the success of the property is due to the its style of service, which constantly aims to be up to date on the latest luxury hotel trends.

If you have ever been, it’s the hotel’s location on the hillside that makes it unique and offers a nice contrast to the beachfront hotels. The hotel is definitely geared towards the adult demographic as it is strictly an adult only hotel.

West Side Vibes: Montage Kapalua

Located in what is known as the Kapalua resort, the Montage Kapalua stands out as the premier hotel and vacation rental community on the west side. Having undergone a multi-million dollar revamp of the property, the design now maximizes the property’s lifestyle with emphasis on Hawaiian culture and Aloha aspects.

The 24 acre resort is the ideal destination to embrace island hospitality and authentic culture. At every turn, a true sense of balance and harmony — as you relax and enjoy all‐suite accommodations, inspired cuisine, championship golf, water sports, and an award winning Hawaii inspired spa.

We have been lucky enough to help a few of our clients into the property and they have nothing but amazing things to say about their buying decision. The property offers a truly special atmosphere unmatched by any other comparable property.
