The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua

1 Ritz-Carlton Dr., Kapalua, Hawaii, 96761, USA

One of Maui's most notable resorts, this elegant hillside property features luxurious service, upscale accommodations, a spa, restaurants, and a pool, along with an enhanced Hawaiian sense of place. Newly redecorated 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 yoga studio, treatment rooms, and private outdoor shower gardens. A new fitness center features state-of-the-art equipment. 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.
