Stay along Maui’s most prestigious coast, Wailea, in more than 15 Inspirato accommodations. Choose from garden view Maluhia or oceanfront Nalu at Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort, an upscale hotel with access to four infinity-edge pools, restaurants, spa, and more.
Further south, at Ho’olei at Grand Wailea, enjoy full access to Grand Wailea amenities when you stay at one of our three-bedroom homes here. At the southern end of Wailea, you’ll be just steps from the beach in one of our four villas at the Fairmont Kea Lani: Hoku, Makai, Hale Kauno’o, Lehua, Mahina, and Maile, each boasting a private plunge pool.
The Valley Isle conjures up adventures that are larger than life. Explore lush rainforests, hike a towering volcano or surf a rushing wave. Perhaps you'll tee off at one of Wailea's incredible golf courses or find yourself mesmerized by a pod of humpback whales. You'll also enjoy warm stretches of white sand and the best sunsets on the island. From the exclusive Wailea, you can set off on the Road to Hana, on the eastern side of the island, and step back 50 years to the Maui of secret waterfalls, empty beaches and pervasive spirituality. The Inspirato residences in this tropical paradise will elevate your vacation just steps from warm sands and blue waters.
Head out on a whale-watching excursion with certified marine naturalists in search of humpback whales. You may catch a glimpse of mothers and calves playing, or even hear underwater whale songs.
Some of Maui's best views aren't visible by land. Blue Hawaiian Helicopters offers various tours, including the West Maui and Molokai 50-minute ride that takes you over gorgeous valleys, cascading waterfalls and striking sea cliffs.
For beachfront dining and award-winning sushi, make your way to Morimoto Maui. Iron Chef Masahuru Morimoto serves up creative dishes like toro tartare, tuna pizza, and blistered shisito peppers.
Selected as A Top-10 U.S. spa by several travel magazines, Spa Grande at the Wailea Resort has 40 treatment rooms within its 50,000-square-foot facility. The largest spa in Hawaii, it's a favorite of locals and tourists alike.
Don't let a fear of heights keep you down. A certified Paraglide Maui tandem instructor will take you 3,000 feet high to glide over Maui. The ride lasts 12-15 minutes and offers gorgeous views of the valleys and water.
After enjoying the sun, sea and surf, it's time to see what lies beneath. Atlantis Submarines offers tours that take you 100 feet below the surface, where you can spot sand sharks, a sunken Carthaginian ship and a colorful array of fish.

Tourist- and family-friendly Maui is the perfect site for first-time visitors to Hawaii. It is easily covered by car and offers an array of activities for everyone in the group. Try snorkeling, zip lining, swimming, sailing, golf and more.
Maui's south side is known for its luxury resorts, while the west side features affordable condos for the budget-conscious. Visitors from both sides will enjoy the parks, reserves and nature hikes found throughout the island.
Maui weather can be unpredictable. It might be raining in West Maui but sunny and dry everywhere else, so it's a good idea to be flexible when planning outdoor activities. On the flip side, the changes in climate keep Maui fresh and interesting.
On the Big Island, and on other islands, too, you will often hear "Aloha" as people greet one another and "Mahalo," which means "Thank you." A handshake or friendly hug is a common way to greet someone.
Maui is six hours behind New York, three hours behind San Francisco and 11 hours behind London. This also means departure flights commonly occur late at night (on Maui time).
Year-round highs linger in the 80s, while the lows rarely dip below a pleasant 63 degrees. Gentle trade winds maintain a comfortable beachfront breeze. When you leave the beach, you'll likely encounter one of Maui's numerous microclimates. The island's leeward (downwind) side is generally less humid, while on the windward (upwind) side of the island, you'll find a wetter climate that's home to earthly ecosystems that are uniquely Hawaiian.
