Location & Amenities
Nestled on a lush hillside with stunning ocean views, breathtaking waterfalls and tropical flora, Wailea Beach Villas Resort is located on coveted prime Maui real estate. The resort boasts direct access to one of the best beaches on the islands, Wailea Beach — a stunning palm-tree-lined stretch of soft sand and clear turquoise waters, with just the right-sized waves. The beach is also shared with The Four Seasons and Grand Wailea; two other upscale resorts in the vicinity. It’s not uncommon to spot Sea Turtles and other exotic marine life while snorkeling or simply splashing around at this idyllic beach. The pristine stretch of beach offers miles of walking or jogging trails with views you’ll never tire of.
The property boasts two swimming pools — one a designated children’s pool with waterfall, partial ocean views, and hot tub, and the other a relaxing beachfront infinity pool and hot tub.
If keeping up with your normal fitness routine is important to you while you’re vacationing, you’ll be thrilled with the resort’s state-of-the-art fitness center, which includes Precor cardio machines and a fully equipped weight room. Locker rooms and showers are also provided.
The service and hospitality at Wailea Beach Villas Resort is exactly what you would expect from a top-notch, upscale hotel, and you and you’re family will feel safe and secure with the resort’s 24-hour gated security and property patrols.
Reception and concierge can accommodate any request or need you may have, from pre-arrival grocery shopping and delivery, to arranging a family horseback riding experience on the beach, or scheduling a private or couple’s massage.
Aside from the pristine locations and superb service, the stunning and spacious accommodations is what sets Wailea Beach Villas Resort apart from the rest. The luxury condos feel so roomy and contemporary that it’s easy to imagine you’re at someone’s private oceanfront luxury home, with every amenity you could need or want.
Families can choose from two or four-bedroom luxury villas, all stunningly appointed with state-of-the-art chef’s kitchens, spacious private outdoor BBQ area, flat screen TVs and surround-sound speaker systems, custom exotic wood furniture, and luxury linens, top-of-the-line mattresses and high-end bath products.
In the kitchen you’ll find everything you need to make quality, in-room meals, such as a waffle maker, panini press, espresso and coffee machines, a full-sized sub-zero refrigerator, and a Viking BBQ grill on your private outdoor space.
Two-bedroom Villas boasts over 2500 square feet with two luxurious master suites, each with their own bathroom, and a fully equipped office or third bedroom. Four-bedroom suites offer over 3000 square feet with four spacious bedrooms, three bathrooms, stylish Ralph Lauren furnishings, and an attractive rich mahogany wood and nautical blue decor theme.
Wailea Beach Villas Resorts is situated nicely to give guests access to the best shopping, restaurants and spas in the area. It’s wonderful to have access to the neighboring resort’s world-class restaurants and spas while being able to walk back to a private villa and avoid the hotel crowds.
Guests of Wailea Beach Villas can use their private key card to gain access to The Shops at Wailea, a luxury shopping mall that’s home to more than 70 shops, restaurants, and art galleries. Inside you’ll find luxury brands such as Gucci and Louis Vuitton, as well as St.John & Tommy Bahama, and brands your kids will love, such as Roxy, Billabong and Quicksilver. The mall also frequently hosts evening entertainment.
There are plenty of casual and upscale restaurants to choose from just steps away from the villas. Some popular eateries nearby include Monkeypod Kitchen, Bistro Molokini, Wolfgang Puck’s Spago (located inside the Four Seasons,) and Nick’s Fishmarket Maui. Mulligan’s On the Blue is a popular eatery in the area, offering nightly live music and dinner shows, as well as a great Happy Hour menu.
Also just a quick walk from the resort is the world-class spa located at the Grand Wailea Resort, and the Wailea Golf Club. The Wailea Tennis Club is easy access from the resort, as well.
And of course no trip to Hawaii is complete without attending a traditional Hawaiian Lu’au, and luckily, a very good one is offered right in Wailea, at Te Au Moana Lu’au. The buffet dinner is hosted oceanside, and features exciting traditional Hawaiian dancing, games, music and drinks. Te Au Moana Lu’au is held right next to Wailea Beach Villas, so it’s a convenient “must-do” activity during your stay.
Wailea Beach Villas is truly the best of both worlds — a roomy and comfortable home away from home with the luxury and services of a world-class hotel. Escape the crowds of a busy resort and enjoy the privacy and security of your own luxury condo while still being in the vicinity of shopping, restaurants and nightlife. The whole family will love having their own space, enjoying a home-grilled meal on their own private patio, while taking in stunning Maui sunsets and panoramic views.
