The design style of Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea perfectly matches its gorgeous beachfront setting. The open-air lobby immediately sets the tone. Filled with beautiful flora and a museum-quality collection of contemporary art, with works from Hawaii's statehood to the present, the lobby is ideal for a cocktail (there's live music in the evenings). The U-shaped building is designed so that the majority of rooms have full ocean views. A subtle island décor is found in guest rooms, which are all spacious and comfortable with cheery colors like warm yellow and more Hawaiian artwork.
The entire design of the resort emphasizes open spaces — even the gym is outdoors here — taking full advantage of Wailea's year-round dry and sunny weather. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star luxury oceanfront resort more than meets the needs of its sophisticated and active guests, with several pools, great open-air dining and a lovely crescent beach.
