Luxury resorts on Maui
If you’re looking for the best 5-star resorts on Maui, you’re in the right place. Maui is arguably one of the best places for honeymoons and has many high-end luxury resorts to choose from.
Here is a list of the best luxury resorts on Maui, in no particular order. Click on the name of the hotel to check pricing and availability for your dates. If you’d like a fully-customed trip with a Hawaii travel specialist, make sure to contact me.
The best 5-star resorts on Maui
Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea
No list of the best luxury resorts on Maui would be complete without mentioning the Four Seasons Maui. Overlooking Wailea Beach, this luxury oceanfront resort offers three pools and three on-site restaurants.
The Four Seasons has one of the best children’s programs around, but it’s also an excellent option for honeymooners. The staff is incredible, and the view is one of the best on Maui.
Andaz Maui at Wailea
The Andaz Maui at Wailea is another popular destination for honeymooners. This trendy hotel is also one of the most eco-friendly resorts on Maui. It was Hawaii’s first LEED-certified resort and uses recycled materials and composts food waste, among many other things.
The Andaz Maui has an adults-only pool, which is great for honeymoon couples. You can also enjoy four incredible on-site restaurants and enjoy some wine on your private Lanai. Although the Andaz is not adults-only, you’ll find fewer children here as there aren’t many amenities for families at this resort.
While Hawaii has no true all-inclusive resorts, the Travaasa Hana is as close as it gets. The Travaasa Hana is tucked away near Hana (yes, as in the road to Hana) and is very quiet and different from anything else you’ll find.
The Travaasa is one of the very few resorts in Hawaii to offer an inclusive option featuring three chef-prepared meals. The hospitality at the Travaasa can’t be beaten. If you’re looking for “the real Hawaii,” this is it.
Again, this is not an adults-only hotel; there are fewer families here since it is so removed from the popular areas of Maui.
Located in West Maui, the Ritz-Carton Kapalua is perfect for golfers and those who want the best of the best in a 5-star luxury resort. The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua is more isolated than many resorts, making it perfect for those who want a quieter getaway.
If you’re looking for an adults-only resort, this is the only luxury resort on Maui that is truly only for adults. The Hotel Wailea is the only Relais & Châteaux hotel in Hawaii. This boutique hotel has only 72 one-bedroom suites and set on three tropical acres.
Tesla Model X house vehicles make it convenient for guests to explore the beautiful area, even without a rental car. The Hotel Wailea is consistently voted one of the best hotels in Hawaii, and also one of the top 100 hotels in the world by Travel+Leisure.
Four Seasons Lanai
While the Four Seasons Lanai is technically on the island of Lanai, it had to make the list of the best 5-star resorts on Maui. This luxury resort is everything you’d expect of a Four Seasons. The Four Seasons Lanai offers more privacy than the luxury resorts on the other islands.
Although all Four Seasons resorts are kid-friendly, you won’t find as many children on Lanai due to the remote location of the resort. The Four Seasons Lanai also has two lagoon styles pools; one is adults-only. If you want to get away from it all, Lanai is a great choice and just a 45-minute ferry ride from Maui.
If you’re looking for things to do on Lanai beyond relaxing at the spa or golfing, I’d recommend the Lanai Cat Sanctuary. This visitor-supported sanctuary protects both local cats and native birds on an island with no shelters and no veterinarians.
Grand Wailea Resort and Spa
If you’re looking for the best luxury resort on Maui for families, the Grand Wailea Resort and Spa might be exactly what you’re looking for. This luxury 40-acres oceanfront resort features nine pools, a spa, and seven bars and restaurants.
Montage Kapalua Bay
The Montage Kapalua Bay is a 5-star resort located on the West side of Maui. It is located on 24 oceanfront acres. The premier all-suites resort offers plenty of space along with housekeeping twice a day (yes, twice!)
Although you can cook in your suite, the resort provides the excellent restaurants you would expect from a 5-star resort. You can also enjoy some golf on two nearby golf courses. Or, swim or snorkel in the ocean that is just a few steps from your room.
Like most of the resorts on this list, the Montage Kapalua Bay is not adults-only. However, it does feature an adults-only pool.
