Fodor's Review

One of Maui's most notable resorts, this elegant hillside property features luxurious service, upscale accommodations, a spa, restaurants, and pool, along with an education center and an enhanced Hawaiian sense of place. Guest rooms and one- and two-bedroom condominium suites (some of which are available for rent) incorporate the rich colors of the ocean, mountains, and rain forests that surround the resort. Residential suites are in a separate wing, but all the hotel amenities are easily accessible. The elegant spa, with Hawaiian design elements, includes a fitness center, yoga studio, treatment rooms, and private outdoor shower gardens. Amid the lush resort grounds, the multilevel pool and hot tubs are open 24 hours, and children have their own pool area. The Environmental Education Center features Jean-Michel Cousteau's "Ambassadors of the Environment" program, and a full-time cultural advisor instructs employees and guests in Hawaiian traditions. Although not directly on the sand, the Ritz does front D.T. Fleming Beach, one of Hawaii's best.

Honoured "Trans-Pacific" Wedding Guests at Lovely Locale

Rather recently (late February / early March, '15) we were invited wedding guests at this lovely property. Will give high praise to the hotel's most rejuvenating spa and massage treatments upon our arrival. (We had pre-booked sessions, given our rather lengthy transit from our home of Singapore.) When on holiday in the Hawaiian islands, I love daily swims in the ocean; the Ritz offers a most agreeable beach for such endeavours. Thankfully, the wedding

weekend was a low-key and intimate affair, giving us the opportunity for much appreciated relaxation before continuing our trans-pac journey for ongoing work in the San Francisco Bay Area. Memorable time with family, friends and staff at a special place.
