A gorgeous island refuge

311 Rooms / 72 Suites

Four Seasons Resort Maui is located in the town of Wailea, about a half hour from Maui's airport and a prime destination for those whose idea of a vacation is simply beach, sun and pool.

Consequently, the hotel has an impressive pool setup, with a main one on the ground level of the property (and highlighted with a fountain just above it on a grand staircase), and an adults-only serenity pool on the lobby level, which serves drinks like a Mai Tai out of a carved-out pineapple. Pool service is comprehensive and enjoyable, with the possibility of ordering meals, too. There are a few different restaurant options from which to choose, all of which include a view.

Work off all of that savory food at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel’s fitness center. Thankfully, the cardio center is outside under a covered portico, so that guests don't have to feel like they’re missing the wonderful Hawaiian weather, too. And whenever hotel guests feel like sightseeing, the idyllic town of Hana and Haleakala National Park are just a short drive away.
