Grand Wailea

3850 Wailea Alanui Dr., Wailea, Hawaii, 96753, USA

"Grand" is no exaggeration for this opulent, sunny 40-acre resort—either astounding or over the top, depending on your point of view, and entertaining for kids either way—due to its elaborate water features such as a "canyon riverpool" with slides, caves, a Tarzan swing, and a water elevator. Tropical garden paths meander past artwork by Léger, Botero, and noted Hawaiian artists—sculptures even hide in waterfalls. The recently refurbished rooms have new furnishings, carpets, bathroom tile, linens, artwork, 55-inch flat-screen TVs, and mobile device power stations. Pick out a live Kona or Maine lobster for dinner at the Humuhumunukunukuapua'a restaurant—named for Hawaii's state fish—which "floats" in a saltwater lagoon stocked with tropical fish. Spa Grande, recently underwent a fabulous makeover and offers everything from mineral baths to massages. For kids, Camp Grande has a game room and movie theater. The Grand Wailea can meet your every vacation need without ever leaving the property.
