Snap Dragon, Day Flower, and Oneloa sit on the second floor, featuring open-air lanais with lush garden views. Kahili, a ground-floor home, offers a private lanai that opens onto a lawn. All are just a two-minute walk to Kapalua Bay Beach.
The latest addition to Montage's artistic collection of distinctive hotels, resorts and residences, Montage Kapalua Bay is set within a pristine 22,000-acre natural paradise on Maui's spectacular northwest shore. Step into Montage's unique spirit with Hawaii's gracious "ho'okipa" (hospitality), incorporating the area's coastal heritage through design, architecture, food, and cultural programming. The resort has earned numerous accolades, earning a Forbes Five-Star Award in 2017 and the designation as the "#1 Resort on Maui" by Travel + Leisure in 2019. From guided yoga sessions and a rejuvenating spa to the Sunset Pool and the gorgeous crescent beach, your Destination Concierge can make all the arrangements.
