Located on the lush, tropical island of Maui you will find the enchanted Ritz-Carlton Kapalua, situated along a stunning beachfront and within the century-old Hawaiian pineapple plantation. This property is more than just a hotel; it’s an experience of a lifetime. You will enjoy everything from beautiful beaches with breathtaking sunsets, to championship golf, to complimentary and cultural activities. Not to mention Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ambassadors of the Environment program, where you can learn about native Hawaiian traditions, culture, and explore the outdoors.

The property is home to a Farm to Table program, which highlights the resort’s commitment to sustainability. And the property was built over ancient burial grounds, which, although off-limits to visitors, represents the important of respecting the land and its history.

The hotel boasts a 17,000 square-foot spa where you can relax and soak in some authentic Hawaiian spa treatments, as well as attend yoga classes or unwind in the private relaxation areas. The pool area is expansive, complete with personal luxury cabanas as well as a private adult pool for those who seek a quieter atmosphere.

You will find six different on-property restaurants to choose from, making your dining options quite extensive. Kai Sushi and the Ritz-Carlton’s signature restaurant, The Banyan Tree features seasonal items, local produce, and fresh seafood.

Perhaps one of the most unique things you will find at this property is the above-mentioned Ambassadors of the Environment program, which is committed to exploring the connection between our actions and the impact it has on the ocean. This program offers an educational experience that is both fun and entertaining for the whole family. You’ll find activities for children where they can learn about native Hawaiian fish, how to snorkel, and most importantly, how to respect the ocean.
