Hawaii gets its first Relais & Châteaux property.
Hotel Wailea, a former private members club previously unknown to incentive travellers, joins an exclusive association of the world’s finest hotels and gourmet restaurants, becoming the first Relais & Châteaux property in Hawaii.
The hotel, which has just undergone a $15 million redesign, is set in 15 acres of lush tropical gardens with 72 one-bedroom suites and a fully refurbished cabana and pool area.
Hotel Wailea is raising the bar on the farm-to-fork movement on Maui by artfully bringing the island’s full bounty to life through cuisine. Hotel Wailea’s fine dining restaurant blends Southern Mediterranean flavours, artisanal Hawaiian products and Maui-grown ingredients, including those sourced from the hotel’s on-property farming operation, Wailea Organics.
The hotel also offers an ocean view treehouse where guests can experience private spa treatments within the mango tree canopies.
